Create a seller profile and register gear

  1. Gear entry is open thru Nov 9.    All inventory must be entered online.

  2. Gear Entry will be closed on Wed, Nov 9 at 9pm.  
    This gives us time to print and prepare tags for Check-in on Thursday.

  3. If you register gear then you are also agreeing to to pick it up on the pickup day/time. 
    Failure to do so is an implicit act of donating the remaining gear.

  4. Sign Up to create a seller profile or Enter your ID if you have already done so.
    We are using new software this year so your previous profile is not available.
    CRITICAL - Double check your home address as it is where we send your check/money.

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

  5. Enter gear in the form and Press "Create Inventory" to add gear.
    If you have 50+ items, email skiswaphelp@gmail.com to have tags mailed or picked up.  Cutoff for this is Nov 7. 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.

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

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 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 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 - The 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.
