Line Item Bids

A Line Item Bid is, where you present us with a part that you want to sell and we make you an offer to purchase the part.

It’s called a Line Item Bid, because it comes off a bill of materials or a list of components and a bid is made for one line or a part.

Lot Bids

A Lot Bid is, where a list or a “lot” of components is bid on in its entirety.

In this case, all items on the specified list will be bought as a whole.

Full/Partial Consignment

Full consignment means all the surplus/excess inventory is shipped to the re-seller with an agreement in place to share the proceeds from the sale of goods. Generally these agreements range from 50/50 to 90/10 split.

In some cases, the seller will allocate parts without physically shipping the inventory to the consignee.

Blended Option

We offer flexible service options based on what is important to the customer. We will work to make any plan a success.

Blended Option is one that is designed by the customer and our excess manager.

Below are some things that might be important to you:

  • Logistics
  • Proper storage facility
  • Tiered payment plans
  • Revenue sharing
  • Contract length
  • Payment up-front
  • 24 hour ship-back
  • International marketing
  • Quick sell-through

When it comes to your excess/investment, we understand that a one-fit-all approach will not always work. So we are willing to listen and come up with a tailored solution that will work best for you.
