Online Options To Sell Your Stuff
Depending on the time frame of your move will determine how quickly you need to get rid of your excess items that are not coming with you to your new home. If you have a good deal of planning and packing time, you should consider selling or giving away items online. Selling your items online may get you more money than having a yard sale. That is for certain items, though nothing is guaranteed.
Ebay has been a stable grounds for people looking to sell off their un-needed items. You can sell virtually anything on it that you want, as long as it is legal. Though with an auction site like Ebay, you have to pay fees for listing items and fees on the selling price. But again the worldwide exposure of your item may lead to more money, than you neighbors at your yard sale. If you have a good deal of books, CDs, and DVDs to get rid off, you might want to consider Half.com, a subset of Ebay. With Half you can list your items and leave them there indefinitely. It is not an auction site, so there is no time limit.
In either case you will need to make time to pack and ship items to your customers. This may add some packaging costs on your part.
If you don’t want to deal with auctions and fees, you can try Craigslist. People list lots of items here for sale or just giving away for free. If you choose to sell items and meet buyers from this site, it is at your own discretion. It is up to you to use your best judgment and not get into any bad situations when arranging to meet a buyer.
