Maryland Tack Exchange is now accepting consignments as well as purchasing saddles outright from customers. Unlike most tack shops we are always on the lookout to purchase high quality saddles directly from clients.
We are currently accepting the following brands:
- Black Country
- Custom Saddlery
- DK Freedom
- Stubben Zaria Optimum
- Tad Coffin
- Voltaire Design
When we purchase a saddle outright, we base our pricing on what the current market is for the make, model, age and condition of that saddle as well as if it is something we need or have many in stock already which can affect the price. We pay you as soon as your saddle arrives to us. This is a nice option for those who need the money up-front to purchase another saddle (we do NOT require that you purchase another saddle from us as a type of trade-in). We make you an offer that is valid based on the pictures you send us, and we honor that price unless any flaws are not disclosed prior to the saddle being shipped. Once we receive the saddle, we check it over well and cut you a check that same day, put it in the mail, and the deal is done.
PLEASE NOTE: unlike saddles, we only buy tack accessories outright, we do not consign them.
If you are interested in getting an offer from us to buy your saddle or accessories please fill out the form below, attach pictures and select “Outright Purchase.”
We charge 25% to consign your saddle, but we cover all cleaning costs, website fees and credit card fees out of that commission. If you have purchased a specific saddle from us and now you are looking to resell that saddle, we only charge you 20%. We charge a minimum consignment fee of $450 on any saddle we sell regardless of whether purchased from us or not. If your saddle goes out on trial, you will receive a courtesy email because if it sells while on trial you can expect the higher selling price versus the final sale price. Once your saddle is sold, you will be cut a check immediately and notified that your saddle has in fact sold. Typically, consigning your saddle will net you between $150-$300 more than selling it outright to us since we charge 5% less. This is a benefit of consigning, however, you will not be paid until your saddle sells unlike outright purchase where you receive payment immediately upon us receiving your saddle.
ANY SADDLE SENT TO US ON CONSIGNMENT AND THEN ASKED FOR BACK BY THE OWNER WILL BE CHARGED A $75 FEE AS WELL AS SHIPPING CHARGE OF $74.95 BACK TO OWNER. THIS IS SO WE CAN COVER OUR COST OF ADVERTISING/INSURING YOUR SADDLE WHILE IN OUR POSSESSION.
ALL SADDLES SENT ON CONSIGNMENT MUST INCLUDE A CLEAN SADDLE COVER OR ONE FROM MARYLAND TACK EXCHANGE WILL BE PROVIDED AND $35 WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE SALE OF THE SADDLE.
If you are interested in consigning your saddle with us, please fill out the form below, attach pictures and choose the “Consignment” option. After your application is reviewed, we will contact you with pricing for your saddle. If your saddle is accepted, you will then be provided with instructions on shipping and what information to include in the box with your saddle.
