If you don't call them regularly, they will close your contract and take everything you gave them - your money and your items. They don't even call you to tell you they're closing your contract. Life happens, and people are human. We sometimes forget or lose track of time. The LEAST they can do is call us before they cancel the contract and give us a chance to get our stuff and money back. They don't, and they merely cite the contract and say you're in the wrong if you want your things. I get that they have a lot of clients, but calling you before they cancel your contract is not too much to ask. If you're okay with hounding them regularly for your money, maybe try it. I would have come back, brought them more stuff to sell, but they lost me for life because they refused to give me back what I feel is mine, contract or not.
This place has assisted me in checking on prices online. And, may have helped me from getting played on what I sell my piano for at a different location. So, if you're to sell your items anywhere. Sell them with Stewart's, they'll work their hardest to get the best deal for you on your consignment. No matter what the item might be.
