What are the DTX sales Terms and Conditions?
All items sold by DTX are “as is”, which means that there are no explicit or implicit warranties. However, we do thoroughly inspect each item before offering it for sale to ensure it’s in a safe and operable condition. Because we sell consigned items, DTX has a “no haggle” price policy. The price marked is the price you pay.

Can DTX ship an item that I’ve purchased?
In most cases, yes … but please note that prices are marked for shop pickup only. If you need us to ship an item to you, please contact us prior to purchase to determine shipping costs.

Will DTX deliver an item that I’ve purchased?
No. All purchases must be picked up at our storefront or warehouse.

What is the DTX return policy?
DTX will refund 100% of the purchase price of any item(s) returned within seven (7) days from the date of purchase.

OK, so how does this work?
After signing a consignment agreement, simply drop off your item(s), and we’ll do the rest. We list many items on our website and other online applications (Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, etc.) and put them on display in our Newark showroom. When the item sells, you’ll receive your money either by check or PayPal, whichever you prefer.

How will my items be priced?
DTX determines the selling price. We’ll base the price on several factors: the item’s original value, its current condition, and the current market. DTX has been selling pre-owned tools since 2015 and we have a thorough understanding of the market for these items.

How much does DTX charge to sell an item?
If it doesn’t sell … nothing! At the end of the consignment period, you can retrieve your item within 30 days; after that, unsold items become the property of Delaware Tool Exchange. If it does sell, DTX will deduct a seller’s fee of 50% of the sales price and pay you the balance. Note: If applicable, DTX may deduct a “preparation fee” from payments due (for items that need to be cleaned or repaired prior to sale). In most cases, our fee is lower than other consignment stores, and far lower than you’d pay at pawn shops.

Can DTX pickup my item to be sold?
No. Items must be dropped off at our Newark warehouse (1251 Old Coochs Bridge Road) on Mondays between 10am and 4pm (or by appointment).

Why shouldn’t I just put it on Craiglist and sell it myself?
Sure … if you are OK with:

 Inviting strangers into your home?
Waiting around for buyers who may never show up?
Receiving outrageous “lowball” offers for your items?

In addition, DTX offers delivery service, accepts credit cards and PayPal, and will have your items on display in our secure showroom — all of which will enable us to sell your items faster, safer, and at a better price than trying to do it yourself.
