Usedeverywhere.com offers a virtual garage service through a network of a network of 73 free classified websites in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
No time to haul old furniture, unwanted sports equipment and used clothing and toys out of the garage to sell in the driveway on a Saturday morning? Then why not save time and make money by posting your stuff online?
Tish Hill, general manager of Used.ca, a network of 73 free classified websites in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, says selling online is a fast and effective way to make money without the hassle and time commitment of a conventional yard sale.
Hill offers these three reasons to take your garage sale online this summer:
1. Parents can do it from home while caring for the kids, running a home-based business or lazing around the pool.
2. You don’t have to spend days organizing, cleaning and pricing your goods to sell at a weekend garage sale. Posting an online ad with digital photos takes minimal effort and it’s free.
3. Garage sales have limited exposure — typically buyers are from the neighbourhood. Online classifieds have a widespread readership and are viewed by thousands of bargain shoppers.
