How do you sell an appliance to Barker`s?

Contact us and let us know what you are interested in selling and what you are looking to get for price.

We always suggest that you bring pictures by and show us or send them to us via email, Facebook or Instagram. That we can see if it is something that we would be interested in purchasing at the time.

    1. please include multiple pictures and multiple angles if possible.

    2. contact information

    3. desired price

If we have determined that we would be interested in purchasing the item we will have to inspect and test the item.

Please note we are no longer able to send someone out to inspect or pick up the machine. it is the sole responsibility of the seller to get the item to us. We do have a recommendation for a delivery service that will haul your item to us but you will be responsible for any costs associated with this service.

    1. After initial inspection we will attempt to agree on a price for the items dependent on the outcome of the testing. You will receive a "receipt"  with your contact information and ours, the items and the agreed upon price. ( please keep this receipt for your records)

    2. depending on the item itself, time of day, number of items in front of yours to be inspected staffing and more, testing and inspection can take anywhere from an hour or longer. A sales associate can provide a more accurate estimate of time when we receive the item.

    3. If we test the item and determine there are repairs to be made or the item did not meet expectations we will make a new offer based on the costs associated with the findings.

Once the item passes testing and we finalize a price you may collect the payment. A new updated receipt will be printed. This must be signed to receive payment. You may request a copy for yourself.
