Selling Your Fur Coat!

Welcome to  CA$H FOR FUR COAT$ recycling program. We are a global company dedicated to recycling, rather than discarding those old fur coats into our already over burden landfill sites, and hopefully so will you,  it's in our nature to recycle so please try! 

All these fur coats we pay cash for are used for crafting, such as teddy bears and pillows, please review our teddy bear section to see the wonderful work these crafters do, also employs people who love crafting as there hobby for extra income! 

CFFC has been recycling fur coats for many years now, we find that people who own fur coats just don't know what to do with them, now that they are no longer popular to wear.

Recycling makes complete sense and someone else will have the pleasure of doing something different and creative with that old fur coat taking up space in your closet, we pay cash & reimburse any shipping cost for fur coats that we can buy sent to CFFC.COM!

Many aren't able to just give these fur coats away, considering them valuable items, so thru research we have established fair market value for fur coats that hold so much adversity in the market place today, remember “something is only worth what you can sell it for.”

Furs depreciate significantly each year whether they are used or not, being a biodegradable product called an animal skin they eventually dry out and this can lead to furs worst enemy dry rot.

The natural procedure of any animal skins is to dry out no matter what is done to preserve them, even our own skin which we lotion from time to time still ages, animal skins don't get that attention, so they end up hanging in closets drying out and becoming worthless!

All prices are determined from what a furrier would have paid wholesale value as far back as 25 years ago, and not retail costs, these would have varied significantly from each furrier, and were never consistent due to overhead cost and profit desire, while all wholesale purchased prices set by the fur coat manufacturer were usually the same for all furriers selling fur coats.

Some have tried to pass down their fur coats to daughters, family and even friends with no success, the global attitude of people today and the politcal controversy received from animal activists, leaves fur coats undesireable.

Often fur coat owners have an unrealistic expectation of the value of their used fur garment. This is usually due to a mistaken idea of what an insurance or furriers appraisal tells them. An appraisal on a fur garment is an estimate of the retail replacement price. It covers the cost of a new item that is similar to the one you own - i.e. what it would cost to replace yours if it were stolen, lost or destroyed with a new garment of the same fur, style, length, size and quality.

If any furrier indicates your coat is worth any amount, that you would be quite pleased in selling for, ask them for only 1/2 of it in cash value and tell them they can then sell the fur coat for the other 1/2, you will see how fast they remove them selves from this dealing! An item is only worth what the market will bare and today's fur market is quite BEAR!

If you want to sell your used fur coat, what you need to be interested in is the actual cash value of the garment; this is usually significantly less than any appraised value. Usually 8% of actual cost.  Any item is only truly "worth" what someone is willing to pay for it. The price we pay for a fur garment or the listing price of a consigned garment is objectively determined by factors such as the age of the fur, its condition including the skins, style, size, length and marketability.

Keep in mind that this is an animal skin considered a biodegradable and perishable item, fur coats do not retain there value like gold, diamonds , furniture or real estate, fur coats are not a commodity or even a necessity, they are considered a luxurious indulgence, and were most likely purchased at a time when they were in style.

You will still need to find someone interested in buying that old fur coat no matter what you personally feel it should be worth, the saying goes, “something is only worth what you can sell it for!”

Global warming has had a part on the demise of fur coats, fur is not as desired as it once was for warmth so we tend to not wear them because we find them heavy and cumbersome.

Activists have made buying or selling fur coats very uncomfortable due to fear or just plain inconvenience, also there is no big demand for wearing or buying a fur coat that holds so much adversity in the market place. 

We are seeing a generational change in status money spending where it has been directed to electronics used for social media such as facebook, twitter and others. So recycling rather then harvesting furs is highly accepted.

We hope you can find our offers to your liking, if not we encourage you to try all other means possible such as consignment stores, newspaper ads and when those have no success, use our service as your last resort, this way you can rest assured knowing, you have tried every means possible to sell your fur coat, and can find some peace in the recycling and selling of your item to our program Thank You !

CFFC WILL REIMBURSE THE SHIPPING COST OF YOUR FUR COAT TO OUR WAREHOUSE IF PURCHASED.

The following information will be required to sell your item:
1. What kind of fur are you selling - mink, fox, chinchilla, beaver, etc and what color?
2. The age of your garment is crucial to understanding pelt condition?
3. Has it received professional fur care each and every summer?
4. What size is it?
5. What style of coat do you want to sell?

  • Prices are based on the standard rate of 20% depreciation per year from date of purchase on the wholesale price, as retail fluctuates to much and all retail furriers paid the same cost from fur coat manufacturers, with a suggested retail cost they may or may not have followed. 
  • Most furs have a shelf life of 18-22 years, animal skins are biodegradable and perishable over time no matter how many times you did not wear them.
  • Fur coat age and pelt condition is crucial to determine if the fur coat skins can be reworked or sewed again into toys or pillows.
  • Older fur coats will eventually start to physically breakdown with or without proper storage maintenance remember it is a biodegradable product an animal skin.
  • For proper assessment of the fur coat, it needs to be physically examined by a professional furrier.
  • Buying a used fur coat is like buying a used car over the phone that is why physical examination is necessary.
  • This determines if the value is greater then the age it has, fur coats like a car can be in immaculate condition therefore being worth more but that is only determined by a professional furrier.
