SAN FRANCISCO, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The RealReal, the leader in authenticated luxury consignment, implemented a new free packing and shipping service enabling its consignors to conveniently drop off their luxury goods at more than 6,000 FedEx Office locations nationwide. The free packing and shipping service removes the final hurdle in the consignment process in that consignors need only gather their items. Every other step is handled expertly and efficiently by FedEx and The RealReal.
Once the consignor has listed their items online with The RealReal, they simply bring their luxury goods to their local FedEx Office, and everything else is handled, from packing to payment to shipping. In addition to being free of charge and hassle-free, the one-stop service gives the seller a stronger sense of security with a face-to-face transaction and verification of their shipment.
"Our mission at The RealReal is to make the selling process as convenient as possible, which starts by giving consignors a number of frictionless ways to get their luxury goods to us. Adding a free packing and shipping service to our offering furthers this mission and will aid in getting more consignors through the door," said Founder and CEO Julie Wainwright.
Other methods of consignment on The RealReal include free shipping via a printed label and a White Glove Pick-Up Service, available in all major markets. The RealReal inspects, authenticates, and photographs each and every item. For more information on consigning with The RealReal, visit: https://www.therealreal.com/consignments.
