1) Repairs – We offer full repair services to Firearms, Airsoft, Paintball, BB and Air Guns. Please remember that ALL items brought into the store must be in a bag of some sort and secured as required by law. And please, by all means, makes sure there is NO ammunition still in the firearm itself. 

GunsmithingAll types of gunsmithing services are provided.

Fee - $75 non refundable deposit for diagnostic and the 1st hour of labor at time firearm is accepted into the store. After any firearm(s) is inspected and troubleshooting completed, an estimated final cost can be provided if required before repairs begin. We will update the customer if any issues arise during repairs that may require more money to be spent on the repair. 

Airsoft, Paintball, BB & Air Guns

All types of repair services are offered.

Fee - $75 non refundable deposit at time item is accepted into the store. After item is inspected and troubleshooting completed an estimated final cost can be provided if required before repairs begin.

We cannot guarantee repairs can we finished in a timely manner, or at all. Some parts are just not available anymore and some repairs cannot be completed no matter how hard we try. All deposits are non refundable even if repairs cannot be completed.

 

2) Consignment –

We can consign sale many different items, not just firearms. We use a system by which we establish a price with you that you will get  for your item upon sale.

**PLEASE make sure the firearms you bring in are cleaned! If not we will have to take $40-$60 per hour of cleaning at least off the top of your payment to clean them for you. A proper cleaning can take awhile to do and we can't do it for free as it takes an employee off the sales floor. Some firearms that come in have inner barrels coated in grime and build up that takes hours to clean out. So if you want your full payout please make sure your consignments are clean and are in the best shape possible to be sold!!!**

We then apply our % on top of that price.

This way its a clean deal for you as you know what you will be getting and will not be getting those annoying calls every few days about change of price.

It gives Poco Military the ability to provide flexible sale negotiations on items and sell them quicker.

If by any chance your item does not sell in the first 3 months we would then call to discuss a change in pricing.

Please take a look below at a summary of what the process will be:

How It Works:

 

  1. We agree upon a dollar amount you are happy with for your consignment item(s).

 

  1. This dollar amount needs to take into consideration what a fair retail price will be including our fee. (See table below)

 

              Up to $1500

         $1501-$3500

               $3501 +

                   25%

              20%

                 15%

 

  1. For example, if you bring in something you want $400 for, we will add a 25% fee for a total retail price of $500. The fee % scales down the more expensive the consignment is.

 

  1. Consignments are paid out 7 days after the date the item(s) are paid for AND picked up (or for web orders upon arrival at the buyer's address) from our store. If we need to clean item(s), a fee will apply as well. Transfer time for Restricted/Prohibited items will extend this time period before payment will be given out.

 

5. We can only pay out once the item is in the customer's hands for 1 week to honor the 1 week warranty period

6. Sometimes in an effort to sell your consignment as fast as possible we will pull it from the wall and web site to shop it too long time customers we know may be interested in a particular item. This does NOT mean we have sold it, please know we will contact consignees once payment is ready to go.

 

Terms of Consignment 

  1. Any item(s) dropped off at Poco Military Outdoors (PMO) for sale are assumed to be in 100% working order. If they are not, the owner of the item(s) will be responsible for removal or arrange and pay for repairs and/or cleaning if agreed too.

  2. Any damage to consignment items while in possession of PMO will be due to the nature of displaying, storing and demonstrating item(s) to potential buyers. Owners of noted item(s) that sign this agreement absolve PMO of any responsibility for potential damage.

  3. PMO insurance will cover theft and fire of any consignment item(s) in PMO possession.

  4. Lay away is a possible payment option given to customers to help complete the sale of consignment goods. This may extend the payment owed to the consignee by up to 30 days which is the maximum length of lay away.

  5. Poco Military will render payment for items sold through consignment after a period of one week has passed from the date that the purchaser has taken possession of an item sold. In the case of layaway, online sale, shipping or the transfer of restricted/prohibited firearms can lead to longer wait times for payments to be rendered. Poco Military will contact sellers of consigned goods once payments are to be made available for the items sold. Under no circumstances will payments be made available sooner than one week after goods are recieved by the purchaser.

 

We can take in consignments via mail too, but please be aware we will need a scan of your firearms license first. Also all shipping fees (to us and back to you if you want the consignment item back) will be paid by the consignee. 

 

3) Brokerage / Intermediary Service for Firearms Sellers & Buyers: 

This is a confidential service designed to help alleviate some the concerns and some of the potential dangers for private individuals buying and selling firearms, accessories and ammunition on line.  

Whether you’re a seller or buyer, long distant transactions can pose risks for people on both sides of the transaction.  

From the exchange of money to the release of personal information, including but not limited to your Pal info and home address, information that identifies you as a firearms owner which in the wrong hands could be used to steal your identity and/or put your home at risk for a targeted firearms theft, potentially placing your family in harm’s way.  

Notwithstanding the risks you face of sending your cash and your personal information to a stranger who never intends to complete the transaction, leaving you out of pocket and putting your identity and home at risk of theft.  Last but, not least, receiving an item you ordered that is not what you ordered and/or in the condition represented and/or as pictured in the ad.  

Poco Military's is an incorporated company that has been in business for 10+ years with a strong reputation for honesty and customer service.  We are fully licensed and would be happy to work for you as a Broker / intermediary under the following system:

The seller or buyer will either first drop by, call us or send us an email outlining the details for the transaction they wish us to facilitate and provide the requisite contact information for both parties, names being used, non-personalized email  and/or phone number and who will be paying for our service.  We will verify for the buyer and seller each other’s Pals  in confidence from each other, neither sharing actual names or details of each party with the other to complete the transaction, holding this information in confidence like we do for our consignment customers but giving them the assurance the Pals were verified. In accordance with the Firearms act as it currently stands.

In the case of the seller, they will then send/drop off the firearm/item etc. to Poco Military, when the buyers funds have cleared our account. 

The buyer knows their funds won’t be transferred to the seller unless the item has been received and checked by Poco Military.  Should the item(s) be damaged or not as advertised and the sale fall through, the buyers funds will be returned to them. 

We will only  ship out the item(s) to the buyer once we have confirmed the buyers and sellers Pals, the condition of goods and the buyers funds have cleared to our account, at which point we will either electronically transfer the funds owed to the seller or the seller can drop by and pick up the funds owed to them by cheque or in cash if they prefer.

Please be aware the transfer process concerning Restricted firearms can take weeks to complete sometimes.

Fee for this service is 15% of the final selling price before tax for Restricted items and 10% for Non Restricted items. This is over and above any applicable shipping fees.

Brokerage fee is not refundable.

 

4) Dog Tag Printing
