The best place to get value for things that clutter your space.

 A Yard Sale will be the first thing that will to come in mind when you think of getting rid of some of your stuff  and unload all that clutter, but you’re unlikely to get top dollar for your stuff from local bargain hunters. If your goal is to make as much money as possible, you must know where to sell.

Following are some of the best places to sell various items and get value for things that clutter our space:

Sports equipment

Tired of looking at sports or fitness equipment taking up space in your home or garage that you no longer use? It could be worth money or trade-in value for other items we carry! Come on in and get paid cash or receive an additional discount on our already low prices.

So how does this work? It’s easy! Just take your equipment to some of the platform at any time during business hours some will require appointments. They will evaluate your used merchandise to give you the best deal possible.

 Some resale chains such as Play It Again Sports specialize in used fitness equipment. You can also turn to Craigslist, SportExchange, SidelineSwap of sports equipment please before craigslist ensure to follow safety precautions.

Electronics

 There are plenty of companies that will gladly take your old, smart watches, gaming console, laptop and other electronic equipment off your hands. In exchange, they’ll send you cold hard cash,  You can sell your old electronics without having to visit a physical location such as a pawn shop, which is a bonus during the COVID-19 pandemic. And you won’t have to worry about paying for shipping or the fees some services charge when you sell electronics. The prices offered with trade-in programs on an old device are usually a little lower than what you could sell electronics for, but the reduced price is worth forgoing the headache of trying to sell on your own.

 There’s no shortage of ways to sell old electronics. To name a few, you can go through:

Amazon trade-in program, Apple’s trade-in program, Best Buy Trade-programme, decluttr.com, Gazelle.com, BuyBackWorld,

 How much you get and how you are paid will differ from site to site and program to program.     So, get quotes from a few places.

Please regardless of how you sell an old electronic device, don’t forget to wipe the hard drive of any personal information first.     

Clothes

But so much depend on the shop’s policy, you might be paid either upfront or when an item sells.

If you live in an area with no consignment shops nearby, consider an online options.

I have found that selling used clothes will give you the most profit when selling at a variety of places.  Instead of focusing on one platform to sell, focus on selling your items on many platforms to expand your reach.

Here are some of the list of places for you to sell your clothes, swap.com,  Instagram, Facebook, Swap Meet, ThredUp, LetGo&OfferUP.

Collectibles and antiques

 If you believe a piece is very high in value or your collection contains some true rarities, you’ll likely get the most money through an auction house. Look for one that specializes in your type of item to ensure it is able to attract the right buyers. If you have antiques or collectibles that aren’t quite auction-house caliber, look for an antique store that might be interested in either purchasing them or selling them on consignment.

Sell the items yourself. You’ll make the most money by cutting out the middle man and selling the items yourself, but it does take a bit of effort, To sell items online, i recommends setting up an account on eBay. If you think you have something special, put it up for auction rather than setting a fixed price. That way, the natural laws of supply and demand will set the price. Just remember to set a reserve price on the item for the lowest price you’re willing to accept to protect your investment. If shipping will be expensive, consider selling locally through Facebook Marketplace or OfferUp.

Sell to a local antiques or collectible store (if open). Because you typically walk in with your item and walk out with cash, this is the quickest and most efficient option for selling, but keep in mind you won’t get top dollar, and they may be closed right now because of the pandemic. “Because dealers have to resell your item and they have all of the overhead associated with running a business, you will only get slash percent of what the retail price will be,”  Be sure to check if your local antique mall or shop is open first before heading out. Some are taking items by appointment as well.

China and dishware

Even good-quality china and dishware can be difficult to sell for any significant amount of money nowadays.

Replacements Ltd. and the International Association of Dinnerware Matchers will buy china and dishware. These options might offer the easiest way to get a decent amount for your china.

Of course, these sites are going to turn around and sell the items to others for a significantly higher price. If you want to cut out the middle man, you can try selling on eBay, craigslist. But, as with antiques and collectibles, your listing can get lost in the competition.

Research the going rate for your particular brand and style of china. Then, consider selling individual pieces rather than the whole set to maximize your profits.

Books

Before I begin the list though you need to understand that not all places you can sell your books are equal.

You’ve got to find the place which will take the types of books you’re selling, in the condition you’ve got them in  Further, when comparing prices for how much places will pay for your book it isn’t always easy to compare apples to apples.

That’s because you need to consider the payment method, how much the fees are, and even things like convenience of being able to print out a shipping label or paying for postage.

If you’ve got to pay postage, for example, it will effect how much you have in your pocket at the end of the transaction.

Similarly, the more convenient it is to sell your books, typically the less you’ll get paid for them. The harder you’ve got to hustle to get the best price the more you can, in theory, profit. But you have to know if it is worth your time,some of the list are:  Amazon.com (as Third-Party Seller) Bookscouter.com, Yard Sales & Garage Sales, Bookstores.com, Sell Back Your Book, Half.com, Textbooks, ECampus.com, Cash4Books.net,Textbook Rush,

To sell your books at some of the websites or locations I’ve suggested above you’ll need to know your book’s ISBN number.

The ISBN number is a 10 to 13 digit number usually displayed above or below the bar code that is on the back of the book (most of the time).

Sometimes you have to hunt for it a bit more, such as inside the front cover or even a couple pages in, but typically not.

Typing in one of these codes isn’t much of a hassle, but if you’ve got LOTS of books to sell it may become so. If you’ve got a lot of books to sell I suggest using one of the places below which has an app which is designed to scan the books bar codse. This will help you when you’ve got lots of books, just to save time and sanity, at least when possible.

Movies, music and video games

I belive you’ve got the world’s largest barely-used DVD collection? Perhaps it’s time you started selling your old CDs, DVDs and games for cash if we’re totally honest, we’re absolutely not going to watch or use ever again.

It makes no sense to keep hold of stuff you don’t need – especially if you’re in need of some cash. The good news is that the unwanted remnants of your collection can be transferred into cold, hard cash.

Here’s how to squeeze as much cash as possible out of them,if you sell them on some ofhe list below: Music Magpie is one of the most known and easy-to-use trade-in sites, and they’re a great place to sell your CDs, DVDs, books, games and tech. CeX

Musical instruments

You probably want to sell your music instruments (including guitars, microphones, recording gear, drums, etc.) either because you no longer had a need for the gear or you are just looking to upgrade them. Over time I’ve discovered the best places to sell music gear,
