Q:

Where can I sell my unwanted furniture?

A:

Unwanted furniture can be sold in various places and platforms, such as online marketplaces, online and offline classified ads, local auctions and local flea markets. People can even sell them in their own garages. Taking unwanted furniture to open-air market or community sales also allows for a better selling price, though it requires one to transport the items to the market in order to sell it.

Craiglist is a site worth checking for people who want to sell unwanted and gently used furniture. It works as an online newspaper classified ads and allows users to list furniture items, such as couches, dressers, tables, beds, chairs, and even large appliances. Because the person is selling the items to neighbors or nearby towns, he can just specify that the items are available for pick up in his house. Ebay is another great auction site to sell furniture, though it mostly caters to smaller items, such as books, electronics and toys.

Holding one's own garage sale works if one is ready to negotiate the price and haggle with neighbors. It eliminates the need to move the furniture to a store and allows potential customers to check the condition of the items before buying it. Some states also allow their residents to access a large database where people can find a nearby sale and auction site to sell, buy, or donate different types of goods.
