How It Works

Red Truck makes it easy for you to find great deals on new and used items, tailor the shipping or assembly to your personal needs, and give back to charities in the process.

Listing is Easy

Click on Sell Your Gear and simply follow the prompts to create your listing. Additionally, we have created this Quick Guide to Photographing Your Gear, because better pictures and as much detail as you can provide on an item, will help it sell faster and for a higher price.

Premium Shipping

Buyers pay for shipping so this cost does not need to be factored into the price of the item. If you need assistance with packing a larger item, Red Truck customer service agents will help facilitate the process through our industry partners. Learn more.

Fast Payment

Buyers pay up front on all orders. The funds, minus the 10% Red Truck fee and at least 5% for charity, will be available for transfer to your bank account three days after confirmation of delivery to the buyer has been received.

Giving Back

5% of the full price on every item you sell will be donated to the charity of your choosing and you always have the option to designate a higher percentage in the listing process.


Buyers pay for shipping and the cost is determined by your area code. Items that require assembly will include the option for a Red Truck partner to deliver the gear to your home and assemble it on-site. Learn more


Most of our gear has a set price that you may instantly purchase with the Buy Now option. If you have your eye on an item up for auction, you may make a bid or add it to your watchlist. We’ll send you an email when the new bids are received and two hours before the auction closes.

Giving Back

5% of the sale price on every item purchased on Red Truck is sent to the cause associated with the item. Sellers have the option to direct a higher percentage to the charity and this will be denoted in the listing.


Red Truck is committed to protecting buyers in the event that items are not as they were advertised, damaged in the shipping process, or never delivered. Please see the Red Truck Guarantee for more details.
