Preparing for Your Garage Sale - Preparing for Your Garage Sale

One of the first steps in moving is getting rid of items you don’t plan to bring to your new home.  As a full service moving company, we always recommend that our customers only move the items they really plan to keep.  This not only saves money, but time and headaches once you are in your new home.

Our next series of articles will discuss some tips to help you prepare for your garage sale.

Determine Date(s)

The first step in the garage sale process is determining the date(s) to have your event.  This will give you a set time to have everything sorted and ready.  Saturdays and Sundays are often the best days for garage sales.

Organize Items

Next, you need to throw away items you do not plan to sell or give away.  Once you decide what items you plan to have in your garage sale, you will need to organize them.  Many people choose to organize them by room or category (i.e. kitchen, bath, kids, etc.) Once you organize the items, create a master inventory of everything you plan to sell.

Make Items Look Their Best

Once you have determined what items to include in your garage sale, go through them one more time and give them a little TLC. Cleaning up the items can help them look more appealing and may even allow you to sell them for a higher price.
