FCNY's commission is 25% for all instruments whose final sales price is less than $10,000, and 20% for flutes whose final sales price is greater than or equal to $10,000. There is a minimum commission of $500 for each item consigned. We offer a 5% reduced commission if you buy and sell at the same time. We also negotiate trades and buy instruments outright.
Conditions of Consignment:
FCNY requires all pre-owned flutes to be in excellent playing condition. All consignment instruments are assessed by FCNY's repair staff upon receipt. Any required repairs must be completed and paid for before the instrument can be listed for sale.
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.
