Consignment Sales

Our consignment sales service offers the opportunity to have us sell your used professional-level C flute, Piccolo, Alto Flute, Bass Flute or Headjoint.

We require the owner to send their instrument to Flute World for repair evaluation and pricing. We regret that due to many factors, we cannot quote resale pricing over the phone without seeing the instrument in person. After estimating the resale value of the instrument, we will contact the owner with a suggested selling price. If the instrument requires repairs, the repairs will need to be taken care of before the instrument is listed. Flute World must have the owner's approval of the selling price prior to listing the flute for sale.

We require a non-refundable fee of $45 USD per instrument. A 20% commission will be deducted from the final selling price of each instrument. When an instrument is sold, you will receive payment in US dollars approximately 3-4 weeks later.

Please do not send your instrument(s) to us before contacting us first!  We regret that we are not able to take in every instrument on consignment.  Please make sure that you contact us to get approval to list your flute with us before spending the money on shipping it to us. Instruments sent to us for consignment without obtaining prior permission will be returned to the owner at the owner's expense.

We are very sorry, but we do not purchase instruments from customers.

Due to custom issues with other countries, we are only able to accept consignments from customers in the United States at this time.
