Some e-commerce or auction sites are specially created for selling tools, while others have sections dedicated to selling tools or housewares. If selling tools online, also consider listing a classified ad in the "for sale" section of a community-based site. Selling tools online is a good option for a small collection of tools. Many sites take a percentage of the profit for the sale of the tool, and shipping may be either at the owner's expense or at the expense of the purchaser. Some also charge listing fees or membership fees, so read the fine print.

Selling a large amount of tools may be easier at a flea market or at a garage sale where all of the tools can be displayed at once. Flea markets require renting space, so they're more likely to be a cost-effective choice if you have lots of items to sell.

Some purchasers seek used tool sales because they can get older, more reliable models, while others value vintage tools and specific models.
