Welcome to CA$H FOR FUR COAT$ Fur Recycling Program!


Selling Your Fur Coat!

Welcome to CA$H FOR FUR COAT$ recycling program. We are a global company dedicated to recycling, rather than discarding those old fur coats into our already over burden landfill sites, and hopefully so will you, it's in our nature to recycle so please try to do so!

All these fur coats we pay cash for are used for crafting into, teddy bears, pillows, furniture companies are making furniture for the log home industry and various other non-wearable items, please review our teddy bear section to see the wonderful work that is done, it employs people who love crafting as their hobby and recycling for extra income!

Cash For Fur Coats has been Recycling & Upcycling pre-owned and new fur coats for many years now, since 1999 to be exact. We find that people who own fur coats just don't know what to do with them, so now that they are no longer popular to wear or might not fit you anymore, having been bought some 18-30 years ago.

Recycling & Upcycling makes complete sense, someone else can have the pleasure of doing something different and creative with that old fur coat, which is just taking up space in your closet gathering dust and drying out. We pay cash & reimburse any shipping cost for any fur coat or coats that are sent in to our warehouse to buy at Cash For Fur Coats.

Many aren't able to just give these fur coats away or dispose of them, considering their fur coat still very valuable item, so thru research we have established fair market value for fur coats that hold so much adversity in the market place today, remember "something is only worth what you can sell it for."

Also keep in mind that any computer, cell phone or many other electronics we have purchased over the last 10-15 years are worth nothing today, and we bought those items at high premium prices, sometimes 3-4 times over, with no possibility of ever selling them again for anything, yet for a 5-25-year-old fur coat today you could still sell your old fur coat for some cash, at Cash For Fur Coats today, and get something we can all use again CASH, because through much hard work Cash For Fur Coats has found a way for Recycling & Upcycling these otherwise aging unused fur coats, so this could be your very lucky day in finally finding a buyer.

Furs depreciate significantly each year whether they are used or not, being a biodegradable product made from an animal skin, they can eventually dry out and this does lead to fur skin's worst enemy Dry Rot making the coat worthless.

The natural progression of any animal skins is to dry out no matter what is done to preserve them, like our own skin which we lotion from time to time still ages, animal skins don't get that kind of attention, so they end up hanging in closets drying out and becoming worthless!

All prices are determined from what a furrier would have paid in wholesale value as far back as 30 years ago, not the retail cost the buyer paid, these would have varied significantly from each furrier and retail fur store, they were never consistent, due to overhead cost, profit desire of each thousands of furriers that have existed back some 30 years ago, who today are now all gone (which says volume for the obsolete fur industry), these wholesale prices were set by the fur coat manufacturing company, where the individual furriers purchased from, they were all the same for every furrier buying and selling fur coats.

Some have tried to pass down their fur coats to daughters, daughter-in-law, family and even friends with no success, the global attitude of people today thru social media and the political controversy received from animal activists, makes fur coats unpopular to wear anymore.

Often fur coat owners have an unrealistic expectation of the value of their used fur coat. This is usually due to a mistaken idea of what a furrier's appraisal tells them. An appraisal on a fur garment is an estimate of the Retail Replacement Cost. It covers the cost of a Brand-New fur coat a coat that is similar to the one you own - i.e. what it would cost to replace yours if it were stolen, lost or destroyed with a brand-new fur coat of the same fur type, style, length, size and quality, so read the fine print of your appraisal.

If any furrier indicates your coat is worth any amount, that you would be more then pleased in selling for, ask the furrier for only 1/2 of that amount in cash value, and tell them they can then sell the fur coat for the other 1/2 and keep the cash for themselves, you will see how fast they remove themselves from this deal! Yet they have the perfect environment to sell a used fur coat but they to know it is nearly impossible and are not willing to put their money where their mouth is! The old Adage is an item is only worth what the market will bare and someone is willing to pay. It is not so fashionable for fur coats today unfortunately, as it once was back some 30 years ago!

If you want to sell your used fur coat, what you need to be interested in is the Actual Cash Value of the fur coat in it's current age, fur type, condition and marketability, this is usually significantly less than any appraised value. Usually 8-10% of the actual retail cost a consumer paid some years ago.

Any item is only truly "worth" what someone is willing to pay for it. The price we pay for a fur coat is objectively determined by factors such as the age of the fur, its condition including the skins, style, size, length and marketability.

Keep in mind that this is an animal skin considered a biodegradable and perishable item, fur coats do not retain their value like gold, diamonds, furniture or real estate, fur coats are not a commodity or even a necessity, they are considered a Luxurious Indulgence, nothing more you bought it because you wanted to, they were most likely purchased at a time when they were in style.

You will still need to find someone interested in buying that old fur coat no matter what you personally feel it should be worth, we buy many things in a lifetime that are considered expensive, which we will never receive full value for, it is just the normal course of wanting and consumerism, once again the saying goes, "Something is only worth what you can sell it for!"

Global warming has had a part on the demise of fur coats, fur is not as desired as it once was for warmth, so we tend to not wear them because we find them heavy and cumbersome.

Activists such as PETA, GREEN PEACE, have made buying or selling fur coats very uncomfortable for consumers due to fear or just plain public inconvenience, also there is no big demand for wearing or buying a fur coat that holds so much adversity in the market place today.

We are seeing a strong generational change with Millennials, who are the next buying generation, spending their hard earned status money towards the hope of new homes, cars, computers, social media electronics, used for Facebook, Twitter, etc., they are not buying fur coats, this is due to all the controversy with activists that is for sure, just to many other interesting items to buy today, not old out of fashion fur coats, that we baby boomers hope to get rid of. So Recycling & Upcycling rather then harvesting new furs is now trending and highly accepted in their circle and that is GLOBALLY.

We hope you will find our offers reasonable after all this information, if not we encourage you to try all other means possible such as consignment stores, newspaper ads and when those have no success, use our service as your last resort, this way you can rest assured knowing, you have tried every means possible to sell your old used fur coat, and can find some peace in the Recycling & Upcycling and selling of your item to our program for a real usable item called CASH, Thank You!

Cash For Fur Coats reimburses shipping cost of your fur coat when it is purchased.

The following information will be required to sell your item:

  1. What kind of fur are you selling - mink, fox, sable, lynx, etc. and what color?
  2. The age of your garment is crucial to understanding pelt condition?
  3. Has it received professional fur care each and every summer?
  4. What size is it?
  5. What style of coat do you want to sell?
  • Prices are based on the standard rate of 20% depreciation per year from date of purchase on the wholesale price, as retail fluctuates to much and all retail furriers paid the same cost from fur coat manufacturers, with a suggested retail cost they may or may not have followed.
  • Most furs have a shelf life of 18-22 years, animal skins are biodegradable and perishable over time, no matter how many times you did not wear them.
  • Fur coat age and pelt condition is crucial to determine if the fur coat skins can be reworked or sewed again into toys, pillows, furniture and other non-wearable items.
  • Older fur coats will eventually start to physically breakdown with or without proper storage maintenance remember it is a biodegradable product an animal skin.
  • For proper assessment of the fur coat, it needs to be physically examined and touched by a professional furrier.
  • Buying a used fur coat is like buying a used car over the phone that is why physical examination is necessary.
  • This determines if the value is greater then the age it has, fur coats like a car can be in immaculate condition therefore being worth more but that is only determined by a professional furrier.
