Sell Your Items

At this stage you should be left with just the larger items of furniture and general household items you think may hold a value, my advice would be to try to sell them or offer them to your own family or friends first.

The price you get for second hand furniture and general household items is so low at the moment so these items are going to be of more value to yourself or people you know.

The main reason for this is cheap mass production and increased competition from online markets such as Facebook, Gumtree and E-bay along with hundreds of other internet sites selling these items, there is also the ever increasing number of charity shops on the high street selling these items.

You could have a day out with the family at a local boot sale, give all your items a good clean and dust off and load them in your car, but make sure they are complete with no missing parts and have no damage, check that they are working properly and keep your prices realistic.

Sell Second Hand Furniture To A Dealer

Sell To A Dealer

Sell your items to a second hand dealer if you can find one, but please bare in mind a dealer will only give you about 30% of the items market value, because they have costs for the collection, resale and delivery to take into account before they can make a profit on these items.
