    We have a few tips to make your upcoming buy super easy... To be able to offer a same day service please bring your items in allowing time to process before closing. The more you have, the more time it may take to process. Tips for a faster processing time include laying your items flat in a hard sided container and any outfit pieces placed together. Containers 18 gallons or smaller fit best behind our counter and at our processing stations and will help with shorter wait times.
