Used furniture can be sold through local classifieds or online sites like eBay and Craigslist. When selling furniture consider whether the customer is going to pick it up or who will pay for shipping.
There are a few different places to sell used furniture in good condition.
- Local Classifieds
Get the attention of local customers with a listing in the local newspaper. This is a good option for those who have a lot of furniture to sell or are considering a garage sale. Some smaller papers allow subscribers to place an ad for free. When placing an ad, consider what day of the week the most papers are sold.
Hit the online market with a classified ad on Craigslist. The online listing site allows customers to place listings for free. It is a good option for those who live in major cities, which are the focus of most of Craigslist's sub-pages.
Those looking for a more aggressive selling site can list their gently used furniture on eBay. This is an auction site, but also allows sellers to provide a 'buy it now' option. Sellers can choose to have the customer pay for shipping, offer free shipping or only allow local pick up for large pieces.
