Some individuals also make used appliance marketing into a business. They purchase used appliances at one price, then clean them up, make any essential repairs, and resell and deliver them within their community. Individuals who profit most from selling used appliances often charge to remove old appliances and install the new one. Another way to make money from a used appliance is to donate it, which can result in a tax deduction.

If selling, one of the most popular options are classified ads, either online or in local newspapers, along with local appliance shops. Another alternative is selling the parts of the appliance, rather than the entire device. Repair shops and appliance technicians may be looking for these individual parts. Scrap metal from the appliance is also lucrative, and can be sold easily. If selling machines for scrap metal, washers usually have a better resale value than dryers.
