FAQs

Q. Do you buy reclaimed items from people?
A. Generally, no. We get most of our stock from donations and demolitions, which allows us (and you!) to keep items out of landfills when they can be reused. However, if an item has a high intrinsic value, we will sometimes pay or trade for it, but this is an infrequent exception. If you have questions or items you’d like us to see, please e-mail a description, pictures, and any other information to reclaim@philadelphiasalvage.com¬†and we’ll take a look.

 

Q. Do you deliver?
A. Yes, we do. We have an agreement with a local licensed and insured moving company, and we can arrange delivery for you that starts at $75. For more information, please contact us. Delivery will generally be a good option for items too large to ship (like furniture) when the buyer lives in the Philadelphia area.

 

Q. Do you ship out of state?
A. Yes, we do! We can ship items worldwide. Typically, we use Priority Flat Rate shipping from the USPS. We generally have items shipped from the shop within 1-2 days of order, and domestic delivery is usually within 1-4 days of shipping.
If you have questions about a shipping rate, please contact us for more information. Third-party shippers are welcome, and we will prepare your item for the third-party shipper of your choice.

 

Q. Where are you located?
A. Our main location is in West Mt. Airy, an area of Philadelphia, right across the street from Weavers Way Co-Op. Though there is a Carpenter Street in South Philly, we are actually located on Carpenter LANE. If you have any further questions about our locations, please consult our “Visit Our Shops” page here on our website, or give us a call at 215-843-3074.
