7 Tips to Make Your Moving Sale Easy & Profitable

Updated: May 14

From thoughts of new beginnings and fresh starts 😁 to the dread of packing your whole house 😭 Moving can be exciting and daunting at the same time. What could make this time a little easier? Having less stuff to pack. Enter...the moving sale 👊🏼 Why not purge things you don’t need or want anymore, make a little scratch, and make your packing that much easier and faster?


Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

  1. Pick a date, advertise, & put up some eye catching signs.

  2. Involve others- family, neighbors, friends... basically anyone who wants to lend a hand and maybe sell a few of their items at the same time

  3. Price your items appropriately and ahead of time (remember your goal here- getting rid of stuff you don’t want to pack)

  4. Plan for weather- have tarps handy to cover your goods in case of rain, maybe some fans or bottles of water around if it’s hot

  5. Sort, arrange, and group items like folks might see in a shop. Less chaos, more focus for your shoppers

  6. Be ready to bargain, but place a “Firm” tag on items for which you don’t want to budge on price

  7. Details! Get change from the bank and a cash box from the office supply store, have extension cords on hand for trying out electronics, have a mirror next to clothing racks, have packing paper and bags or boxes for sending your goods on their way
