Yard Sale Tips From 123JUNK

Now that the sun is shinning and the weather is warm, you’re probably seeing all those “Yard Sale” signs popping up around your neighborhood. Whether your moving, re-organizing, or you just want to clean out your garage, basement, or crowded storage room, a Yard Sale is a great way to de-clutter. At the same time you can make a few extra bucks to go towards that beach vacation you’ve been saving up for this summer!

Here are some useful tips to help make your yard sale successful:

  •       Start with the sign. Don’t just use a blank poster board, use some creativity and make your sign stand out so people notice it. Strategically place your signs. Put them up around your neighborhood, but also take them to local grocery stores, coffee shops, public libraries and other crowded places.
  •             Use the internet to get the word out about your sale. In the modern world of social media, it has never been so easy to connect with people. Let everybody know about your yard sale using resources online like Facebook and Craig’s List.
  •             Avoid planning your sale on a holiday weekend or conflicting with another community event.
  •       Ask your neighbors if they can park down the street to open up spots for shoppers.
  •       Make the price tags visible and legible.
  •       Use tables and blankets to display the items attractively. First impressions matter.
  •       Have an outlet close by, so shoppers can test electronic items.
  •            Make name tags for your sellers and make sure they’re visible so shoppers know whom to ask for help.

We hope your yard sale this spring or summer goes well, however, there is almost always some stuff that doesn’t sell and is leftover. If you’re thinking about having a yard sale keep 123JUNK in mind as a useful resource for the post-sale clean up. We can show up after the sale, do all the heavy lifting and tedious work to clean off your front yard so you can just kick back and relax!

We will take all your unsold items to one of our charity partners and send you a tax deductible itemized receipt in the mail. After all, you don’t want to pack up that old stuff and put it back into storage do you?
