Every move comes with its own set of items to add to the to do list. Some people have to make arrangements for pets to be transported, while others have to make lodging accommodations while they wait to be able to move into their new home. One problem we see arise with our clients from the Denver Movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage is where to sell their unwanted furniture. Oftentimes, our customers simply want to start their new life in their new home with new things.
When searching for the best places to sell unwanted furniture in Denver, we recommend the following:
- Sell Your Furniture to Family Members
While it may be easier to just give away your furniture, we understand that you want to recoup some of the money you’ve spent during your move and suggest selling to family members. Not only are you potentially helping a loved one out with nicer items, but it’s great to visit family and lounge in your old favorite chair. It also adds a certain value to furniture that’s been passed down from generation to generation.
- List Your Furniture in the Classified Ads
This is a classic, but effective method. Our Denver movers have seen results from customers who purchase an ad in the classified section of the newspaper or a local ad magazine and wait for customers to contact them. People are always checking these listings for good local deals, especially when it comes to antiques.
- Contact Used Furniture Stores
Used furniture stores want to offload inventory more than take more on, however they are privy to purchasing items that they feel will resell at a higher value. For example, if you have authentic hand carved wooden tables that you may have been gifted, then it may be a good idea to see if you can get a good price from a furniture seller. This way you won’t have to wait for someone to come take them off your hands while you’re in the process of moving.
