These terms have been updated for the 2018 sale.
ITEMS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR SALE
In order to continually improve the quality of the items for sale in the Used Curriculum Sale (UCS), and to more closely cater to the needs of our shoppers, these items will not be accepted for sale:
Minimum Prices: Minimum item price on Friday is $1. Minimum item price on Saturday is $0.75.
Item Condition: All items submitted for sale shall be intact and in good repair, i.e., books shall have their covers, DVDs and CDs shall be in cases, etc.
Lost Items: Due to the volume of items handled in the UCS over a short period of time, it is possible that despite our best efforts some items may become lost. While we will do our best to retrieve a lost item, all sellers must agree not to hold HEAV responsible for any lost or damaged item left to be sold in the UCS.
The loading dock to the rear of the UCS hall is available for use in dropping off items for sale; however, it will not be accessible until 3 p.m. on Thursday. It is a requirement of the Richmond Convention Center that NO vehicles park in the loading-dock area. The loading dock is for loading and unloading only, and parked or unattended vehicles may be towed at the owner’s expense.
RECEIPT OF PAYMENT
Sellers will receive a check from HEAV for 75% of the selling price of their items sold. HEAV will deduct $1 from your total proceeds to cover the cost of processing and mailing your check. Checks are sent out approximately 4-6 weeks after the convention.
Due to the volume of items sold in the UCS, sellers may be required to wait in line to drop off their items. The wait time varies throughout the day and can be up to 30 minutes depending on the level of volunteer assistance and the seller’s choice of check-in method. Use of the Save-Time Waiver will significantly reduce wait time and is highly encouraged.
Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of the UCS. It is especially crucial that UCS sellers assist in the variety of tasks required to set up and operate this two-day event. For a complete list of areas of service, please fill out our Volunteer Application, checking off the Used Curriculum Sale box and indicating the days and times you would like to serve.
