Liquidations 101

Liquidation merchandise can help you grow your business and profits,
provided you use and purchase it correctly. Our wholesale designer clothing and accessory lots are designed with the boutique retailer or online seller in mind and offer the right mix of products and sizes. Learning about wholesale liquidators’ work will help you choose the right items for your venture.

Types of Liquidation Merchandise

Wholesale lots can be divided into three parts; shelf pulls, seasonal shelf pulls (also known as “job outs”), and customer returns. While shelf and seasonal
pulls are new and quality merchandise, customer returns may be soiled or damaged and useless for resale.  FoxLiquidation.com is committed to offering only the best quality merchandise, so we do not include customer returns in our lots. We sell only shelf pulls and seasonal shelf pulls, so you know you’re getting the best available inventory.

Where does the merchandise come from?

When big retailers like department stores and specialty shops need to move excess merchandise, they turn to us. Removing unsold or out-of-season
merchandise allows stores to make room for new inventory, clear Christmas items out in January, and make room for cruise wear and Valentine’s Day
offerings. This removing and replacing of stock happens year round, as the seasons change and new lines pour in.  As wholesale liquidators, we pull the items from the shelves and send them to our warehouse locations, where it is inspected and sorted into lots for you, the reseller.

How is the merchandise prepared for sale?

Once we’ve received the merchandise, we work hard to sort it into appealing lots that work for the business reseller. From high-end wholesale bedding to
name brand shoes and designer wholesale clothing, the individual merchandise is gathered into resale-friendly lots.

Each lot is packaged onto a pallet or pallets for easy shipping. Shrink wrap securely holds the lot in place, protecting it from damage and keeping everything secure as it travels.   Small lots of up to 3 cartons can be shipped via UPS ground, while we can make freight arrangements for larger or multiple lots.

Many of our clients are luxury boutiques and busy online retailers, selling on eBay, Amazon, and their websites. Working with wholesale
lots allows these independent sellers to plan inventory flow and marketing efforts and target specific customer groups. More information on growing your
business with wholesale lots is available here (link to piece).

The Importance of the Manifest

How do we differ from other liquidators? In addition to offering only shelf pulls and seasonal pulls and not questionable customer returns, we offer our
buyers a comprehensive manifest.  When we receive merchandise, we scan it into our inventory system using UPCs.  The brand name, size, color, and more are listed on a manifest when we package up a lot for sale.  A lot of wholesale shoes, for example, would include the name brand, style, color, and
size of each pair. You can see the manifest list before you purchase, so you know exactly what items are included and what to expect.

The Dangers of Unmanifested Lots

A wholesale liquidation lot is no bargain if you can’t use what is in it. Buying a lot simply labeled “shoes” is a big gamble, and you may end up with
merchandise your customers don’t want and won’t buy. The only way to be sure that the merchandise included in your lot is sellable and worth including in
your inventory is to view the manifest. We know how important it is to your small business to spend every dollar wisely, so every lot at FoxLiquidation.com
has a complete and comprehensive manifest with no surprises.
