Moving sale is one of the best ways to get rid of your old stuff. You do not only lessen the amount that you need to pay to the moving company and you get to make extra funds to buy little things like snacks for everyone on the day of the move or even a brand new TV for your new house if you end up getting lot of profit out of your yard sale. One of the best ways to make any moving sale successful is to plan ahead and manage thing the right way. Here are a few tips on how to do it:
Get everyone in your house to agree, participate and help on the yard sale. Decide on what you want to sell and what you don’t want to sell. If there are things that you want to get rid of but a family member is hesitant in selling, settle on or before the actual day of the moving sale. You don’t want to play the game of tug-of war on the day of the sale as a buyer may want it but one of your family members may hung on to it.
You want to have extra bills and coins ready. Before the day of the sale, go to a bank and get enough bills and coins that you will need on the day of the moving sale. You will be making a lot of “changes” to a lot of people as haggling is part of yard and moving sales. To avoid confusion and argument, it is best that you put a price tag on everything. Just like in the mall, a price tag will give people the idea how much the price of the item is. You will be very busy on the day of the sale as well, price tags will help you keep track of the set price for the item that you you don’t end up lost, confused and worst, tricked because of the absence of price tags.
