Hosting a Moving Garage Sale

Posted on March 27, 2015 at 9:16 AM
Moving is a stressful and overwhelming time. Many families are faced with an overload of THINGS. Should you pack everything and take it with? Sometimes, the answer is "NO". It's time to clean house. This is when a moving sales can benefit your family. You are able to purge on things that are cluttering your home, while making some extra cash!

Here are some tips for hosting a successful Moving Garage Sale:

Tip 1. Sort into Piles
My piles are very simple: What to Keep, What to Sell, and What to Donate. You can go from room to room and sort in this fashion until you have accumulated a significant pile of things to sell!
Tip 2. Invite Friends
The bigger the sale, the more people will stop to browse. Invite all of your friends and family members to join your moving sale in order to benefit everybody.
Tip 3. Opt for a Weekend
Weekends are usually the best days to host a garage sales. When you advertise the dates on your ad or signs, be sure to include the start and end time. You'll have early birds show up, so be prepared early. If you select a Sunday, be sure to start early and end later - many people go to church and will visit before or after.
Tip 4. Thinking of Parking
You'll probably have times where there are many families at once browsing through your garage sale. It is best to host your garage sale at a location that offers enough parking for shoppers. If a person can't find a parking spot, they will mostly continue driving until they find the next sale! If your home doesn't have plenty of space for shoppers to park, consider finding another location. 

A moving garage sale is the best way to free up some space for your new home while making some extra money! Contact Helping Hands Moving for more moving and storage tips!
