Launch BiWISI 2.0

 

GVR is excited to announce the revamped Bag it Weigh it Sell it! program. Beginning November 1, GVR will be open to the public!

Our program is essentially the same with a couple of built in layers to protect us from purchasing low quality goods.

First, we have hired a full time Quality Control agent to inspect each individual item received in the delivery. Her job is to inspect and inform us... of the total pounds received, # of pounds accepted and the # of pounds rejected for each individual delivery.

Secondly, this inspection process will take between 24-72 hours for most deliveries, depending on size of delivery and previously received inspection needs. Having said this, GVR will request a telephone # and contact you within this time period to inform each customer of his/her accepted weight and make arrangements to pay. We will provide all clients the total weight received at the time of delivery. The rejected goods will be available for customer recovery upon request, otherwise, they will be either recycled or disposed of using other means.

Thirdly, in most cases, GVR will not be able to pay on the spot. Payment will be generated once the QC agent has provided the breakdown. Unfortunately, GVR can only pay for the pounds deemed Acceptable. The price GVR can pay for the clothing: $.18lbs.

Lastly, GVR values the energy each of our clients put into their clothing delivery. We appreciate your time and understand that our revamped program requires you to trust us more than our previous program. However, our goal is to grow this program and serve an increasing client base in Texas. We will always be upfront and honest and will never take advantage of our most valued asset, you, the client.

For your convenience, here's a list of reasons the clothing will be rejected:

-WET / DAMP
-MILDEW / MOLD
-STINKY
-DAMAGED (holes, stains, torn)
-DIRTY (dirt, leaves, bugs, mud, blood, excessive animal hair)
-SINGLE / BROKEN/ TORN SHOES

FAQ

- Can I have my rejected goods returned to me? YES, we will happily return your rejected goods at your request.

- If I am not happy with the breakdown of accepted and rejected goods, can I have the entire delivery returned to me? Unfortunately not. Once GVR devotes to time and resources into separating it, we will be unable to return the accepted goods.

- Can I deliver Paired Shoes? Yes. GVR will inspect and buy paired shoes @ .$10lbs once they pass the QC dept.

- What does GVR do with all of the clothing? GVR has clients in the USA and outside of the USA that we ship the clothing for the purpose of reuse.

- Is there a minimum or maximum delivery amount? NO. GVR can handle deliveries of any size.

- Do you pay with cash? NO. GVR pays for all deliveries with a company check.

PLEASE CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS!

THANK YOU, HOUSTON
