Selling bulky goods by shipment:
To start using this service we will need that when uploading a bulky product you confirm us its measurements (length, width and height). We need to know the measurements so that the shipping company, Method, can take into account the space they will need to ship it.
When you sell the product, you will receive a call from Method within 24 hours so that you can choose the day and time that suits you best to pick up your product.
From this moment on, you will not have to worry about anything else because the transport company will take care of packing and picking up the product at your home, so you will not have to bring it down to the doorway or to the street.
In addition, half an hour before the time slot you have chosen, Method will contact you to confirm the pick-up of the product.
Please note that as long as the product fits in the elevator (if there is one), the staircase and passes through all the doors, you will not need to disassemble it.
To find out if you do not need to disassemble the product you can use these hints:
- The volume is less than 0.6 m3. To calculate this you only need to multiply the width x depth x height.
- The longest measurement is less than 1.8 m.
- The weight is less than 75 kg.
In any case, if it is necessary to disassemble the product, Method will tell you.
Please note that this service has a cost for the seller of 10% of the price of the product that will be deducted from the sale price, once the payment is made to the wallet.
