How to Plan a Successful Garage Sale Before Moving

Turn clutter into cash by holding a garage sale. If you’re getting ready to move, selling off some of your belongings will help you save on moving expenses as well as give you some extra cash.

 

Pick the dates

One of the first things you need to do is set a date. Friday and Saturday mornings are popular choices, but for a multi-day sale, you may want to run it from Friday to Sunday or from Thursday to Sunday, to give you enough time.

 

Go over your belongings

Sort through everything you own. Pick out anything you haven’t used in quite a while. Use a systematic approach. Go from room to room, so you don’t miss anything. Decide whether you’ll use that item again for the next few years or so. If not, let it go. By the time you’re done, you should have enough to sell.

 

Check for permits

Many cities now require that you get a permit before you do a garage sale. It’s easy enough to ask the clerk at your city or town or someone in your neighborhood to find out. You can also look up the information online. Some may even allow you to apply for a permit on the internet so check on that as well.

 

Advertise it

Use your social media page to promote the event. Post online at several sites. These can help you increase the turnout for your garage sale. Make yard signs too. Be sure to check if it’s banned in your area, though. If it isn’t, then go for bright colors. Those are sure to attract attention. The writing must also be big enough so passersby can read them from the road.

 

Pack up

Prepping for the garage sale is also a good time to prepare for the move. Start packing up your belongings early so you won’t run out of time later. If you don’t have the packing supplies or don’t have the time, skill, knowledge or patience to do this, look for moving firms that offer packing assistance too. With reputable companies like Fireman Movers, you can hire the same service to take care of your packing and moving needs.
