One of the most stressed advantages about moving house is the opportunity to rid yourself of items you’ve stored for countless years without actually knowing why. Moving home is a fresh start and a new beginning; you don’t want to take with you things you don’t need which will only take up valuable space and time and effort to physically move. Instead, take this as an opportunity to clear your home, life and mind by making a profit on those unwanted items by embarking on a moving out sale.
Post Items Online Before Your Move
The first place you should point out your sale is online. The internet is a vast whirlwind of stuff, so you need to know exactly where to post to generate genuine interest in your products. Anything niche or of significant value should be posted on specific platforms appealing to an audience interested in such an item. For those who are just keen to sell general items online auction sites, local community websites and selling-based websites are perfect. You need to make sure you set a fair price for each item, or you’ll simply be wasting your time and money in writing the advert. You should also be honest; people will wonder why you’re selling a brand new rug at a bargain price, but a slightly worn but great looking rug at a bargain price is much more appealing. Take honest but flattering photographs and be available. If you leave your mobile number, be sure to get back to interested parties and state in your advert if you’re able to drop off the item.
Local Notices : Let Your Neighbors Know
The local library, community center and shops all have community noticeboards. The best thing about these is your target audience will walk past it every day, and those on the lookout for buying something will be looking at your advert. Again, be honest and set a fair price. If you have a lot to sell it is often worth giving a general description of what is included in your Moving Sale and to ask interested parties to offer a price, accepting the most reasonable, making it quicker and faster to sell your belongings. Place certain items strategically, for example, if you have club uniforms, school wear or dance clothes to sell, place a note where your kids attend clubs and classes to generate the right interest.
Jumble Sale/Car Boot
Why not try a jumble sale or car boot to make cash on clearing out before your handy moves relocation ? Not only is it a great way to get rid of a lot of stuff in one day, it’s also a lot of fun. Spaces can be booked for less than ten pounds for the day and with a good selection of things you’re bound to make a healthy profit on those unwanted items. You can sell everything together, as people enjoy rifling through things to find a bargain. It will be an early start and an exhausting day, but if you’re keen on making money and have a lot of clutter to part with this is the perfect option.
If after exhausting any or all of the options above there are still a few things left that just haven’t sold, you should drop if off with your local charity shop. You can either deliver it to the store or pop it into one of the charity collection bags which come through the door. Charities not only sell on products which are in good condition, they reuse and recycle anything that’s not, so even things you think are fit for the bin will benefit a good cause. Your house removal will be greener!
