Trade-In

Trade-In:

We also offer a Trade-In option for those who are interested in trading in their saddle for something in our stock (or in Highline Tack’s stock). 

*We also accept trade-ins of high-end saddle brands through our sister store, Highline Tack – click here for more info: https://www.highlinetack.com/consignment

The Fineline Tack Trade-In rate is currently 40% (minimum trade-in fee of $700). This means you will have 60% (or the list price minus the minimum fee, whichever is greater) of your saddle’s value to use immediately (once we receive your saddle) towards another saddle in our stock or in Highline Tack’s stock. Please note: if you purchase a saddle from us with Affirm, the 5.99% fee will be deducted from your trade-in saddle’s value due to their high fees (for option #1).

Simply follow these steps to Trade-In your saddle with us:

Wrap your saddle in bubble wrap (please no styrofoam/packing peanuts) and place your saddle in a box that is approximately 14”x14”x24” up to 18”x18”x24” *Make sure to use a Double-Wall box or reinforce a Single-Wall box with additional cardboard on all sides. Single-Wall boxes with no reinforcement will not be covered by our shipping insurance policy.*
  5. Place one shipping label inside the box and tape the other shipping label on the top of the box.
  6. Drop the saddle off at any UPS store or any UPS access point (CVS, Staples and others – find a location near you here: https://www.ups.com/dropoff/?loc=en_US)

We will ship off the new saddle for you to try. You may try more than one saddle, if needed.

*We are currently accepting saddles manufactured within the last 10 years (and listed over $2000). With the exception of Pessoa and Black Country, which can be older or under the minimum list price.*
