It often happens that the chair or desk in your office has outlived its purpose and there's a pertinent need to dispose them off and bring in new furniture. Business owners as well as home-office works usually loathe the idea of selling off old furniture, even when they become old and unusable. While locating the correct place for selling your office furniture isn't easy, much depends on the volume of work you are willing to undertake for getting rid of your old furniture. While you can do something to restore the condition of your old furniture, the final outcome could still be a sale.

If you've made up your mind to sell off you're the old furniture. Here's how you can do it.

Consider the local market

If you're staying in some depressed area, you're likely to find many people getting rid of old stuff. You can often find local furniture dealers offering a good deal on buying old furniture. If you can bargain a lot, you can fetch a good price for these dealers. On the other hand, if you're living in a more up-market area than the rest of the city, you may be able to find an organized ready-made market where there are several outlets dealing in second-hand furniture. People have been known to find a good price by selling their furniture.

List your furniture online

This is a latest way of announcing your furniture for sale. There are several online sites where you can put up your old furniture items for sale. Most of these sites are free. There's no charge for listing the items and no commission whenever you sell any item. You can also contact prospective buyers over email or telephone and eliminate all commission-hungry middlemen. However, reports of scams have come in from several websites. You just have to be alert about them and list your items only on credible sites.

Advertise in a local newspaper

If you don't have access to the internet, you can place an advertisement to sell off your used furniture on the classified section in local newspapers and periodicals. You've to pay a fee for inserting your advertisement in the newspaper. The advantage is that you'll be likely to hear from interested parties or those who are interested in the specific item that you're selling. You can also weigh the offers you've received and then decide on the buyer. Hence, you can easily narrow your market to only those who'll buy your item. Ask the classified advertisement salesperson for a suggestion regarding the best date on which you advertisement can be published. This would ensure that you're targeting the correct audience.

If you have a huge number of old furniture to sell, you can consider using a liquidator for handing your sales. There companies exist in almost all communities and they usually handle for the advertisement, sales and money collection on your behalf. You only need to pay a minor commission to the liquidator and the rest of the commission is yours.
