How Consignment Works


We conduct an initial consultation with you to determine the best course of action for your equipment.

If consignment seems to be the best fit, we create and execute a consignment agreement.


You proceed to ship the equipment to our location.

Upon arrival we audit the equipment, ship group items, inspect for cosmetic issues, and run the machine to ensure it is free of errors.


After the system successfully passes our testing process the marketing begins.

Per the agreement, we will proceed to market your system and/or parts to be sold at the agreed upon rate.*

*Simon Systems would be authorized by the consignor (you) to sell the goods only at a specified price agreed upon by both consignor and consignee.  As the consignor you can demand return of the equipment at any time.  The title rests with the consignor until the equipment is sold, at which point, title moves directly to the buyer. Title does not pass through the consignee.  Simon Systems is obligated to keep the consignor equipment segregated from goods wholly owned by Simon Systems.  Simon Systems will forward proceeds of the sale immediately to the consignor or deposit them in a special account.  If you plan to sell on consignment and have legal or accounting questions your attorney should be able to provide guidance on the legal aspects and your accountant can advise on the recordkeeping and accounting aspects of this type of selling.
