There are several options for selling furniture quickly, including holding a garage sale and posting ads on websites such as Craigslist or a social media site. Additionally, furniture consignment stores accept some furniture pieces and pay cash when the pieces sell.
To sell furniture on Craigslist, users create an account and post ads. People interested in buying can contact the sellers to set up a time to meet. Sellers should post both good-quality photos of the furniture and descriptions with brand names, if possible. Craigslist is free; if the price is right, furniture often sells within days.
Another option is to use a social media account, such as Facebook, to sell furniture to friends and acquaintances. Similar to ads on Craigslist, sellers should include photos and detailed descriptions.
Having a garage sale is an efficient way to get rid of furniture without having to answer messages and set up meetings. To attract more shoppers, sellers should post ads in local papers or on Craigslist with detailed lists of the items available at the garage sale. If any furniture is left by the end of the sale, sellers can schedule a pickup from a local charity, such as the Salvation Army.
Furniture consignment stores are another option for selling furniture for cash. These stores are more selective and only take furniture that they sell quickly, such as high-end pieces in good condition or valuable antiques. When the furniture sells, a portion of the price goes to the consignment store.
