One way that you can sell off your secondhand furniture would be through a garage sale; this method is particularly useful if you have a lot of furniture that you need to let go of – for example if you’re moving house, or moving out of the country.

To organise a garage sale, you’d have to first have a place to sell your items. Many a times, especially for bulky goods like furniture, that place would be your home. Depending on your area and type of residence, there are 2 different ways in which you can carry out your garage sale – 1) offline, or 2) online.

If you’re looking to do a mostly offline event, where the sales takes place over 1-2 days during the weekends, it’d be most preferable that you have sufficient space in your house for the guests to move around and browse your items; this approach is suitable if you’re living in landed property. If you live in a flat, the amount of traffic from your event might inconvenience your neighbours.

If you have a little more time to spare, consider organising your garage sales online. This method gives you the most flexibility, and you’d be able to reach out to more people. The main venue where you’ll be conducting sales are on the forums and classifieds online; and because your customers will not be able to see the furnitures in person, you might want to have a camera in hand to take a picture of all the items that you want to sell, and then add details and descriptions to them.
