A common question asked in a consignment store is; “Is it clean?” It’s a natural concern. Rest easy, if you are buying at AFC , the answer is YES, it is clean! Our several stage approval process insures not only the physical integrity of what we accept, but its cleanliness too.
Most of our consignments come from the regions premier private homes, estates, and model homes. We are selective about what we accept. (We let the other stores sell the smelly, old, used stuff!)
Every piece of furniture and carpet that comes through our door is inspected for cleanliness and aroma. If it’s not clean and odor free, we won’t accept it.
We then treat every piece with a residue free, biodegradable, hospital grade sterilization product. It is one of the only non-residual products labeled effective against bed bugs, mites, fleas, fungus, and mold. It dries in less than 20 minutes leaving no odor or residue.
AFC offers a pick-up service for a nominal fee. View a map of our pick-up service area.
Pool tables must be dropped off by a professional pool table mover as we are not equipped to pick up and transfer something of that magnitude.
