Although doing a moving sale is a part of your moving
chores, it can be exciting too. If you plan ahead you will surely get the best
sales and the most enjoyable time in your moving process.
The first you should prepare are the goods. Just like when
selling anything in a store you have to know what you are selling. In this
case, you should simply gather things you no longer need in the house. You can
always assign a day for this. But it would also help if you are alert for
things you should get rid of weeks before the intended moving sale.
Again just like selling anything else you need to market
your moving sale too. You have to inform as many people in your community about
it. You can post ads in telephone poles or you can distribute flyers as well.
You can also post online ads for free.
Just make your ads attractive and big enough for people to easily read
what it says. It should clearly state where and when the moving sale is. You
could also entice people to come by naming the most interesting items in your
sale. Use crayons instead of markers so your ads will still be readable even if
it gets rained on.
And again, just like in a store presentation is also
important. If you hang clothes nicely in a rack, people can easily look through
it. They will also look nicer and more valuable. You should put items with
similar prices in the same table. To dispose more items fast you can price
items by bulk like 3 pieces of an item for $2. Price the items low enough to be
attractive. And make sure you have enough change to keep payment fast and easy.
