We sell rugs on consignment

Several years ago we had a very successful Unclaimed (Abandoned) Rug Sale. We now know that rugs for sale at reasonable prices are something we can offer to our customers on a regular basis.


We will continue to offer unclaimed and abandoned rugs for sale if and whenever they become available. However, in response to customer demand for a variety of area rugs for sale, we are now taking rugs in to sell on consignment

We will hang them and encourage potential buyers to come into our offices to view the rugs we take in. The pictures will be posted on on this page and on our Facebook page (

The rug owner will choose the sale price with ABCs guidance. Any negotiations will take place between the owner and the potential buyer. ABC will take a percentage of each sale. 

Don't take chances allowing strangers to come to your home. Let ABC sell your unwanted rug for you!

PLEASE NOTE:  We reserve the right to decline any rug offered for sale on consignment. We will not attempt to sell Tufted Rugs (rugs with a backing).

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but these rugs are best viewed in person at our office. Please feel free to come during our work hours to view these rugs.


ABC Oriental Rug & Carpet Cleaning will provide a thorough rug assessment which will include a urine inspection with a forensic light. The result will result in a rug identification, the current market value, and a sales consultation.

  • All area rugs placed on consignment with ABC are required to be cleaned and moth treated prior to displaying for sale. 
  • Any urine found in the inspection must be addressed as recommended by ABC to ensure the rug is sold in and odor free, urea free state.
  • Moth Repellent is complimentary.
  • All cleaning services must be paid in full prior to displaying the rug for sale.
  • ABC provides consultation to assist the seller in competitive pricing and will not price rugs excessively above the current market.
  • ABC may choose not to consign a rug or may discontinue a consignment at any time during the consignment period without cause.
  • The seller may end the consignment at any time with a $25 per month cancellation fee. This covers the costs incurred during the consignment period.


As of August 1, 2016, the following Rug Consignment Policy will be in effect...

  • Our consignment fee will be at 30% for the first 3 months your rug is displayed at our offices.
  • The consignment fee will be at 40% for the 4th month.
  • The consignment fee will be at 50% for the 5th and 6th months.
  • If the rug is not sold at the completion of 6 months, the owner will be notified the rug must be picked up within 1 week. 
  • If the unsold rug is not picked up within 1 week, storage fees will begin to accrue.
  • After 90 days, if the unsold rug has not been picked up, it will become the property of ABC and may be sold to recoup costs or destroyed.

Our consignment fees cover labor for staging and hanging your rug, maintaining insurance and moth protection, promoting your rug to walk-in customers, and maintaining this page on our website.
