How to have a Moving Sale in an Apartment

Living in an apartment and then having to move can be difficult for most of us. Apartments usually do not have that much space and if you are planning to move then most likely you will not be able to take all of your things. Before moving it is a good idea to have a moving sale to sell off those items that you do not want to take with you when you move to another apartment. Having a moving sale is relatively easy and you can also earn some money by selling off some unwanted things. Depending on the size of your apartment complex or building, most items usually get sold quickly and without any hassles.

    Organise Items:

    Be sure to first organise the items that you want to sell. It is a good idea to categorise all the items so that you can make a list of all the things that you are going to sell.

    Clean and Fix Items:

    It is important that you clean and fix any items that you want to sell. This will help you get a better price for your items. If you are going to sell items that are broken, then be sure to be honest and tell the buyer all the facts.

    Donate Items:

    Some items that you might not want to sell or fix can easily be donated. Many different charities have a number which you can call and they will pick up the items that you want to donate to them.

    Set Prices:

    When setting prices for your items it is important to price things accordingly. Asking too much for items can put off potential buyers. Always remember that the main objective of a moving sale is to basically get rid of unwanted things and not to make a massive profit from them. If you price your items reasonably, then there is a good chance people will quickly buy up all of your items.

    Label Items:

    Carefully label each item with the price. You can make labels with your computer or by hand and stick them or tie them to the items.

    Design a clever flyer or notice and place it around the apartment complex or building that you live in. If it is allowed, then put the flyer on the main bulletin board found in most apartment buildings. You can also fold up the flyers and put them in the mailboxes of each tenant of the building. This will ensure that everyone gets the flyer. When making a flyer be sure to put your apartment number and telephone number so that people can call and ask any questions that they might have.
