Century Logistics adds eBay value

Century Logistics, a warehousing and after sales company, took more than £90,000 from its online retail service in July, up nearly 50 per cent on June.

The service sells clients’ end of line, returned and repaired stock on eBay, via its warehouse in Bury St Edmunds.  

A team of programmers, photographers and designers work on Century’s eBay sales service.

It reckons that this can fetch clients between 25 and 70 per cent of standard retail price on items – nearly double than can be expected from selling as a job lot.

Managing director Stephen Basey-Fisher said: “The eBay sale for our clients is one of the many added value tasks we undertake for our clients. We take the difficult jobs and do them well. If they have stock left over we offer a service to sell on eBay so the consumer gets a good product and the client can get some extra storage space as well as make money.”

The firm moved into the Bury St Edmunds site last year and has started looking at taking another warehouse to keep up with the demand.
