Before a Local Moving Company Arrives, Hold a Moving Sale to Keep Your New Home Clutter Free
If the time has come to move and you’re looking for a local moving company to assist you in the relocation process, you may want to consider eliminating the items you no longer need to help keep your new home clutter free. Purging unused items from your home offers several benefits, including helping the move proceed more quickly and potentially saving money on the packing and loading process. While taking the time to eliminate items from your home can be a physically and emotionally stressful undertaking, imagine all the ways you could spend the money earned by selling your unwanted items. Offsetting your moving expenses. Buying beautiful furnishings for your new home. Taking a mini vacation to unwind from the move. Dinner and a movie on the town. These are just a few of the ways that you could spend your earnings from a successful moving sale.
Even if the local moving company is coming in only a few days, it is still possible to hold a moving sale in a pinch. Here are some tips for selling your unwanted items:
- Hold your sale on a Friday or Saturday, but not on a holiday weekend.
- Have your sale in your garage or yard if local codes permit; be sure there is plenty of parking available for your guests.
- Advertise in your local paper; if the advertising deadline has already passed, check with your local Chamber of Commerce and see if you may display flyers around your neighborhood with info on the sale date, time, and location.
