One of the most important steps in your move is deciding what stays and what goes! It can be easy and quick or slow and tedious depending on how many things you need. And once you have a list of what is not going to be moving with you it can be overwhelming once you have that pile! But today we made a list of places that help you get rid of the items you no longer need (and possibly make some money on the side!).
Facebook’s newest hit is the Facebook Marketplace! It is super easy, just like a Facebook post. All you need to do is add a few pictures, a description and a price, and you are all good to go! You can have the option for a local pickup or shipping and you can decide who it goes to and who pays! This has been the quickest way to get rid of any unwanted items.
Ebay has been around since the early stages of the internet! It is easy and quick auctions or you can choose to sell it to who gets there first! Most items on Ebay however do need to be shipped and there is a fee to put your item up for sale. But if you find something collectible or that has value it an easy and quick way to get rid of it and make some money on the side.
The Mercari app is relative new and mostly used as an application on your phone. But is just as quick and easy to sell on as the last 2 options! You just take a few pictures, describe the item, name your price, and post! Pretty easy right? The only downside is like Ebay it is mostly shipping. And you may need to have some supplies for!
Like Ebay, Craigslist has been around since the early days of the internet and used for so many different things. You can use it to find someone to rent, to community events, as well as selling items! This option is the best for items that can be picked up and you want gone fast! It is easy and user friendly. Take a pictures, put a price, and someone will email you shortly!
If you have tried all the other websites and its still there before the move, donate to Goodwill. It is always to help a good cause, its quick and you can even get a receipt for everything you donated. If it’s a big bulky item, or you just can’t move it yourself, let your moving company know! We can easily add the stop as apart of your move or we will keep it at our warehouse till we get enough items to do a bulk delivery. Just let us know!
