Organising A Moving Sale Help


Visitors: 254

When you are moving home you may start to think about organising a moving sale. This does not have to be complicated, and can in fact be very easy to arrange. Initially you will need to choose which of your belongings you will be putting up for sale. Usually people organise moving sales in cases where they they have been living in the same building for a reasonably long time and they have collected a considerable number of possessions that they neither use nor need.

On the other hand they may have decided to change from a large premises to a smaller one, and don’t have room in their new home for unnecessary items. Firms might also organise moving sales, if they have out of date equipment that they wish to get rid of or if there isn’t adequate room for their paraphrenalia in the new premises. In advance of advertising your moving sale you must choose which possessions you wish to get rid of.

Take out everything you own and place them into a pair of piles – those that you will be taking with you when you move and those that you will be selling. Practically speaking some other categories may be required also, as there will be some things that you cannot sell, which must be divided into various recycling piles. While you are going through your stuff, instead of just putting everything you are taking with you to one side it is advisable to put it into boxes and then you can get two major jobs done at once. Normally you can complete this job long before your move, since the items that are left idle in your cupboards or in your garden shed tend not to be used regularly and can therefore be packed ahead of time. When the pieces that will be for sale have been selected, you must also choose the day and the time that the sale will be held on. Weekends are generally best, because you will be more likely to attract local people looking for something to do on their day off.

Before you set the date make sure to ascertain if there are any major sporting fixtures taking place on that day, or even a match in your area that will attract large crowds. Depending on the position of your home you might benefit from the crowds on their way to and from the local stadium, or it could happen that all of your neighbours occupied elsewhere when your sale is taking place. Once you a date for your sale, ensure that you advertise in plenty of time.

Use posters and social networking sites to inform the public of the sale and remember to send out reminders a few days before the actual event. An effective way to ensure the attendance of your friends and neighbours if you are organising your moving sale is to promote it as a local gettogether. Organise a barbeque and have some food already prepared, but also instruct people to bring their own alcohol and food so the day will not be very expensive for you.
