FCNY accepts consignment flutes from clients from all over the world. All items are consigned at a 25% commission rate. Items that sell for less than $2,000 qualify for our minimum $500 commission for each item consigned at FCNY. We offer a 5% reduced commission if you buy and sell at the same time, though our minimum still applies. We also negotiate trades and buy instruments outright.
Conditions of Consignment:
FCNY requires all pre-owned flutes to be in like-new condition. This means all flutes must have at least a full Clean, Oil, and Adjust prior to listing, and all scratches and tarnish must be removed. All consignment instruments are assessed by FCNY's repair staff upon receipt, and any required repairs must be completed and paid for before the instrument will be listed for sale. After completing the COA, FCNY will maintain the condition of the flute through the entire consignment process at no additional charge.
During the consignment process, you are completely in control of pricing. We will provide recommendations, but you have the final say in setting the price of your instrument. You may adjust pricing at any time.
While your instrument is on consignment at FCNY, it is covered under the Flute Center's insurance policy. It will be sent on trial to clients within the United States.
