HOW TO SELL YOUR GEAR
- Check In
- Fill out the Wausau Ski Swap Agreement.
- Is there a charge for Wausau Ski Swap services?
Yes, the Wausau Ski Swap charges private consignees twenty-five percent (25%) of the sales price as commission.
- If you have a large amount of equipment to sell please fill out the spread sheet. See the link above.
- What if some one walks off with my stuff?
Wausau Ski Swap will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged equipment. You are selling your gear at your own risk. We will have security at the doors and we do our best to control loss, but ultimately we are unable to control all risks.
- So what happens if someone buys a pair of my skis?
When your gear sells our software will keep track of the sale. When you come in at 5:00 you will get a print out of what has been sold and what has not been sold. Wausau Ski Swap will then give you a check for your gear sold less our commission.
- Can I buy gear on Friday night or Saturday morning before the Wausau Ski Swap is open to the public?
Sorry! You will have to wait until 11:00 am on Saturday morning for the Wausau Ski Swap to open. Members of the Wausau Nordic Club and the Rib Mountain Ski Club who are working the Wausau Ski Swap will be allowed to purchase equipment early (each club will have their own rules).

Yes we will! The Wausau Ski Swap will accept cash, checks (with ID) as well as Visa, MasterCard and Discover Card.
