Spring is here, and Spring cleaning is on everyone’s mind- especially those who are moving this year.  If you are ready to clear out the old, a yard sale is a great way to get rid of the things you don’t need anymore.  

Moving This Year?  Try These Yard Sale Tips to Clean House!

Here are some foolproof tips to ensure that your yard sale is a success.

Plan Ahead

Make sure you plan your yard sale- don’t just wait until the day of!  You want to make sure you sort through your belongings and organize them accordingly so that you know where they will be displayed before carting them outside.  

Determining your date and location ahead of time is also crucial to success.  It gives you a deadline, allows you to properly advertise, and allows you to possibly line up your sale with others in the area.  

Choose the Right Location

Having an off-the-path yard sale can cause you to lose potential buyers.  If you want to have a successful yard sale, try to be as close to main traffic as possible.  If you do not own property in a populated area, find a friend that is closer who would like to do a joint sale.  Or, ask a local fire hall or public building about renting the space for the day.  You can even ask local parks what it would look like to have one there.  


Advertising is key for a successful yard sale.  There are so many ways to advertise these days, it’s easy to get the word out!  The local paper, craigslist, Facebook, and other social media sites are all great ways to get the word out.  Make sure you also go the old-fashioned route by posting signs in your area. 


Get Organized

When organizing your sale, think of the things you will need to make it a success.  You may want to get tables to help elevate smaller items so that visitors are more likely to buy.  You will want to map out your day-of signage.  Will you need tablecloths or blankets to put items on?

Label Everything

The day of your sale, make sure prices are clearly marked.  People can be uncomfortable asking for pricing, especially in a setting where they are looking through someone’s personal property.  Having the prices clearly marked allows people to browse and buy without feeling confused.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
