SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (January 29, 2024) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Geartrade, the award-winning online resale platform for used outdoor gear and apparel, this month announced a new service for wintersport enthusiasts – the opportunity for a high performance ski or snowboard tune before the gear gets boxed up and heads out the door to its new owner.
The elevated level of equipment service is a first-of-a-kind innovation for hardgood resale platforms in the outdoor industry, and is available on any ski or snowboard purchased through Geartrade.
Provided with the support of a state-of-the-art Wintersteiger machine tuner acquired in 2023, the new Geartrade tuning services provide a stone ground finish, sharpening and polishing of edges, and application of base wax. Each tune will cost $40 and be added to the purchase price at checkout.
“The ultimate goal at Geartrade is to make sure that buying and selling outdoor gear is a positive and easy thing for everyone to enjoy. We’ve applied a ton of energy, thought and resources into making Geartrade incredibly simple to use, and our addition of premium services like board tunes adds a level of personal service that really sets us apart,” said Aaron Provine, president of Geartrade.
Geartrade’s commitment to service can be seen throughout their rapidly growing consignment program, an “easy-button” for sellers and buyers of used gear which includes free shipping and an in-house concierge service that receives, evaluates, photographs and posts all products on behalf of the seller.
