Is your garage full of stuff you don’t use anymore? Are you looking to make a few extra bucks by getting rid of it? There are multiple ways to sell your items, and here are a few ideas to get you started.
Get Money From Scrap Metal
Many household items have precious metals inside them. These metals are costly to source, so recycling them is beneficial. A local scrap metal pick up service can come and get items such as water heaters, A/C units and automotive parts and pay you in return. Since these items are no longer working well or at all, this is a great option to get them out of your garage and make some money, too.
Hold a Garage Sale
Your trash may be someone else’s treasure. If you have a garage full of things you no longer need, but are still in good shape, hold an estate sale. The best way to do this is to go through your belongings and choose what you no longer want. Label each piece with the cost so you and your neighbors know how much you want for it. Keeping your prices low encourages people to buy the items. Be prepared to negotiate as many people are looking for the best deal possible.
Bring Items to a Consignment Store
If you have large furniture, tools, and clothing that are still in excellent condition, you can bring them to a consignment store instead of including them in the garage sale. This allows you to make more money, and you don’t have to deal with the sale process.
When you’re looking to make a little money, selling items you no longer use is an easy way to do it. Recycle appliances and things that you can use for scrap metal, have a garage sale or reach out to a consignment store to sell your more expensive items.
