What we do
When you are in a position that you have a lot of unwanted or broken furniture, you will normally think that the best plan of action is to throw it out. There is a fair amount of argument for that, in that furniture clearances can be sorted safely and efficiently by domestic clearance professionals, but the fact of the matter is that you will often be spending cash on getting rid of items that you may even be able to make more money off of! You will see that there are a few different things that can be done to ensure that you are getting the most out of your old furniture in terms of ease of clearance, and even finding ways to sell them on!
If you have a large amount of furniture that needs to be cleared, then you will tend to find that the best way to go is to find a few property clearance services who will come and clear the place out. Whilst you will be paying these services to get rid of things for you, you will also find that your items will be being sold off by the companies to traders who will then sell them on themselves. If you are fine with this then it can work quite nicely, as your items will get a new lease of life, and will help to support people in various different walks of life. However, some people may well resent the idea of paying for their items to be taken away, only for them to then be sold off! Unfortunately, the only way to get that potential money unlocked is to sell those items off yourself.
One of the most popular ways of making cash off of your flat clearance is to take everything to a car boot sale. Here, you can price things low, and sell off large quantities of junk, to ensure that you are at least making a little money off of your unwanted items. However, there are a great many things that you won’t be able to sell that may have to go to the dump! If you have nicer pieces of furniture that you feel could be worth a little more money, then it is worth identifying the materials used and using these properties as a way to look up how much such items are worth on the internet. You may find that you can sell a couple of solid wood items for a fair amount online, whereas you would get much less at the car boot fair.
Only chuck out that which cannot be fixed properly. You will find that much of the time, furniture and other house clearance items can be fixed up rather easily. You should also take them to furniture sellers of a smaller size, as these outfits can sometimes be willing to fix up broken items to sell for profit themselves. The nature of the antiques market at present finds less than pristine items very much in vogue, you will find that battered old wood furniture can often be sold off for a lot more than it’s condition suggests, and the result of this is that you can get a great amount more for beaten up furniture than you may have thought. A clever lick of paint here or there will often mean that you are able to increase the price considerably, making your property clearance much less of an expensive matter!
