    How Pick Up Works

    * NOTE: We are unable to hold unclaimed items or arrange later pick-up times. Items left behind will be donated. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    WE WILL SORT FOR 4 HOURS AFTER THE SALE. Depending on the number of items left to sort and number of Sort workers, we may not completely sort all items to the individual.

    Consignors are responsible for collecting all of their items before they leave.

    Trading Hands is NOT responsible for any items forgotten, overlooked or left behind.

    • You will visit the areas below, pick up your unsold items FIRST
    • NON-CLOTHING/TABLE ITEMS: Consignor numbers will be in numerical order on index cards on the tables. FIND YOUR CONSIGNOR NUMBER ON THE TABLE: your sorted pile of items will be there.  If table sections are unsorted or partially sorted, you’ll look for your items there.
    • CLOTHING: depending on time, clothing may be sorted to 100s. Each row will be labeled. Go to your 100s section (ex. Consignor 919 would go to the 900 row and pull all the 919 clothing).
    • LOST + FOUND: check the area where hold was for any of your items that have lost a tag or gotten separated.
    • LARGE ITEMS: unsold large items will be on the sales floor for you to collect.
    • MO + SPRINGFIELD IL: You will initial your Pick Up Checklist to receive your check. If you have a missing item, your check will be held until the issue is resolved
    • ALL items will be checked as you exit.
    • If you have large items, please bring someone to help you load items.
    • Any items not picked up by end of pick up time will be donated. NO EXCEPTIONS.
    • ANYONE can pick up your unsold items. No ID required, but they will need your Consignor #.
