Are you considering having a garage or yard sale?
Having a garage or yard sale is not only a great way to unload those belongings that you want to replace when you get to your new home or that you just don’t want to hassle with.

Be sure to hand out lots of flyers and post directional signs. Also, be flexible with your pricing. Remember, you’re trying to get rid of these items.
What other options are there for selling your furniture when moving?
Besides donating some items or having a garage or yard sale, there is another option that many individuals overlook when it comes to selling their furniture before moving.

Furthermore, when you get settled into your new home, you can replace some items by purchasing like new items at a consignment store located in your new location. Basically, it’s a win-win situation.
