Click "Register & Status Gear" Then click "View My Inventory"

By Clicking "Register & Status Gear" above, you are agreeing to the following:

Create a seller profile and register gear

  1. All inventory must be entered online.  There is no gear entry at the swap.

  2. You get 75% of the Sale price.  There are no mark-downs during or after the swap.

  3. Gear Entry will be closed on Wed, Nov 8 at 5 pm.  

    • This gives us time to print and prepare the last tags for Check-in on Thursday.

    • We will start printing tags starting Oct 30.  Once printed, your record is locked and you can no longer change it.  If you want to change it, you will need to create a new record.

  4. By registering gear, you are also agreeing to pick-up unsold gear on the pickup day/time. 

    Failure to do so is an implicit act of donating the remaining gear.

  5. Sign Up to create a seller profile or Enter your ID if you have already done so.

    Save your User ID and password as you will need them again several times.

    We are using the same software this year so your previous profile should be available.

    CRITICAL - Double check your home address as it is where we send your check/money.

  6. Enter gear in the form and Press "Create Inventory" button to add gear.

    If you have 50+ items, email skiswaphelp@gmail.com to have tags mailed or picked up.  Cutoff for this is Nov 4. You can tag your items at home making it much faster at gear drop-off.   Tagging Instructions  *Return all unused tags when you check-in.

Drop-off Gear - Nov 9, Thur 5-9 pm or Nov 10, Fri 9:30-12 am

   Please come on Thursday if possible.

    Unsafe gear found during the swap will be set aside and be available at Pickup.

During and After the Sale

  • Check the sold status online during or after the sale.

Pickup Unsold Gear - Nov 12, Sunday 10 am - 2 pm

  • Check the sold status online before picking up.

  • Please come during pickup time 10-2. 

    • After 2:00, your gear will be in a truck heading to storage.  

    • Your gear will be in the main gym by type as orderly as possible. 

    • We will have volunteers to help.

    • We will also be in the process of disassembling the swap in preparation for school the next day. 

  • Before coming, print your unsold gear list.  You should also get an email that there is unsold gear. 
    If you do not see an email Sunday morning, check your Junk folder

  • Before exiting, you will need to prove that the gear is yours.  We will scan it to show it as Picked Up.

  • If you did not find an item at Gear Pickup, we will add a "Not Found" status. 

    • If it was later found its status will be in "Storage".   
      You will get an email with Date/Time and location where you can pick it up.

      If not found, we will assume it was lost or stolen, mark it Sold and add it to your check.

Missed Gear Pickup, 2nd chance

  • Watch for a Ski Swap email for Missed Pickup, Unsold Gear in Storage by Monday evening.
    The email will include where and the dates/times to pick up your gear.

    If you missed pickup and did not received this email, check Junk folder.
    If you do not pickup your unsold gear, it will be considered DONATED but please click Donate online.

  • If there was an unforeseen circumstance (accident, hospitalization, etc.) during  the 2nd chance pickup, send an email to skiswaphelp@gmail.com for a Last Pickup exception.
  • We will hold the Not Sold Gear for about 1 week after the sale.

 

Payment for Sales

  • You will be paid 75% of all equipment sold, not for equipment donated.

  • We will attempt to send your check within 2 weeks of the swap.   Thanksgiving and also holiday mail delivery sometimes delays the check a bit.

  • Inventory sale status issues may cause us to send a second check when resolved.

  • You must cash your check within 6 weeks of receipt or it will be cancelled and considered a donation.

  • If you have an issue, send Seller ID/email, your name, inventory number & equipment type to SkiSwapHelp@gmail.com. 

The Newport Ski Swap will:

  1. Manage your gear and sales income as securely as possible (police officer, security at doors, double processes, etc.)  People do still manage to switch labels and steal gear.  We will take all issues very seriously and do our very best to treat our customers fairly.

  2. Print the tags with a barcode and attach them to the gear when you drop it off.

  3. Keep the Registration page active through December so you can check the status of gear sold and check sent. 

  4. We will send a reminder email after the sale to all who have gear to pick up.
    There may be a follow-up reminder for gear found that did not have a tag.

  5. We will hold the gear for 1 week to accommodate unforeseen circumstances.
    email
    skiswaphelp@gmail.com

  6. We will attempt to send checks for sold gear within two weeks of the swap.
    If there are sales processing errors, we will send a follow-on check when it is resolved.

 

Ski/Snowboard Recycling - A ski recycler, Ski Artistry (brochure) will be at the swap. If you bring unsaleable skis or snowboards to the swap that are too old to be serviced by ski shops due to insurance restrictions and safety, Ski Artistry will recycle them for you.  If you have other gear, you contact them directly at any time via "Contact Owner" on the site, Ski Artistry.
