These tips will help you organize a successful garage sale. A garage sale is a good option to give away items that you will not move, but first you have to ask yourself several questions:
A garage sale can be rewarding both personally and financially if you follow our garage sale tips. A garage sale can help you reduce some of the expenses for your move. Selling part of your household goods can bring in some money for your move and will lessen the size of your shipment. Use our tips to prepare your garage sale.
It is time to decide what you are going to sell.
If you have not used an item in the past few years, you probably don’t need it. This is an item you can sell.
List everything you will sell. Be sure to include as many items that you don’t need as possible. Sometimes it can be more expensive to ship an item instead of selling it for some minimal amount of money and buying a brand new one at your new place – or you may not need it at your new place. For example, if you are moving to a warmer place, you will not need a snow blower. It is better to sell it and buy yourself something that you might enjoy better at your new home – probably a hammock.
This is a list of items that usually sell quite well at a garage sale. Something that you do not use may be a treasure for someone else. If your items are in good shape and are in working order, try to sell them. Put price tags on the items to help you sell them, especially if the price is reasonably low.
Take the plants you want to sell out of their good pots and put them in plastic pots. If you cannot sell the plants, give them away. If you make some money from your plants, you can buy new ones at your new place.
Price your items not according to their worth to you, but their worth to others. A good idea is to ask a close friend to help you with setting the prices. In that way you will get a realistic idea of the price from someone who does not have emotional relationship to the items.
You should present your items in an appealing way. Treat the sale as a proper retail business. Try to present your items as they would be presented in a store.
Apart from the honest buyers, your garage sale could attract dishonest, odd and even mentally ill people. Use our safety tips to ensure the safety of your sale.
Following these simple steps will ensure a successful garage sale. If something is left behind after the sale, donate them to a local charity.
We are a big family of 6 from the United States, we did not know much about Bulgaria and its traditions and culture. Matrix Relocations assigned a personal consultant for us and we were surprised how easy this process can be. For 3-4 days we knew everything we needed for the beginning of our new life in Sofia. We saw huge variety of properties, hospitals, schools, kindergartens. We even saw shopping centers and parks. We are extremely pleased with their services and all this would not have been possible without Matrix Relocations. Our legal papers took some time, but within the promised deadlines. Just great!
