How does an item became sale-ready

Online retailer, iForce Auctions, part of the iForce Group, provides onward sales solutions for a variety of UK retailers since 2008. Products include all types of end of line products, stock clearances, over stock, de-rangers and raw customer returns for clients such as Tesco, B&Q, GLTC, House of Fraser, BHS, John Lewis and Worldstores. These products offer canny consumers, whether B2B or B2C, an opportunity to make money through the purchase of good quality Returns for great reductions, for them to have the opportunity to sell on for a healthy profit.

For a client such as WorldStores, online homewares retailer, the process is a well-oiled machine, dealing with daily deliveries and selecting their best onward route.

The process:

- Stock is checked for quantity, grade and all documents are removed.
- Stock is then booked in at item level into iForce ReSCU warehouse management system.
- Stock is then assigned to a specific pallet and labels are then printed.
- Each pallet is graded and a full manifest taken.
- The assigned labels are then applied and the pallet put away into the racking and uploaded to iForce Auctions.
- iForce Auctions customer gain 75% savings on quality brands through their purchase.
- Once purchased, items can be dispatched, or collected.

Stock is graded as Grade B and C; B being returned in good condition from a visual check, but may have damaged packaging, and/or perhaps a component missing, and C normally a mixture of faulty/damaged items but also could potentially contain some pristine orders, returned because of the wrong size or colour.

Since its launch in 2008, retailers have increasingly realised the value in onward sales and iForce Auctions has been a pioneer in this area, helping to drive sold stock back up the value chain to sell on in either containers, pallet or single item sales. All single items offer savings of approximately 40% of RRP. All items go through a grading process.

iForce Auctions can be found via three online points; eBay, Facebook and its own bespoke site,, and offers next day delivery and a variety of payment options.
