Our client, a national furniture retailer found themselves with a challenge with returned product, needing a sustainable monetisation solution.

Hilco designed a solution which has become an ongoing arrangement, delivering a sustainable long-term solution for the client.

The client’s needs for management of returns include:

Hilco Solution

Hilco APACs unique ability to deploy capital in the purchase of bulk parcels of stock, in addition to capability in managing logistics end to end provided our client an ideal solution as an ongoing basis.

With Hilco’s vast buyer network and auction platform, we believe there is value in all assets, and avoid disposal channels that contribute to landfill.



Hilco purchases the stock on a take-all basis, ensuring that the client has an integrated solution.

The work delivered by the Hilco APAC team directly assisted the corporation to maximise the borrowing base, through its deep understanding of the industry, asset class and risk concerns of the Lender.


Hilco, in providing an integrated solution, has delivered a repeatable process, and a collective no-landfill approach to remarketing the furniture.
