buy & sell online ▪ free classifieds

Got a lot of stuff around the home and garage to sell? Here's how to hold an online garage sale and make some money. It's easier than you might think to clear your garage or junk...

Online Garage Sales and Clearances

Visit icLocal.co.uk to sell your old stuff online

 

We all aquire a lot of stuff over the years that seems to end up clogging up the shelves and corners of our garages. It's usually stuff we bought with good intentions or purchased and used only once or twice.

 

This stuff builds up and there eventually comes a point where we find ourselves needing a clear-out. It's harder now than ever to throw away things which have any sort of value, so selling the old stuff becomes the best option; clearing the garage space and making some extra money along they way. 

 

Opening an online shop seems like a bit of an extreme way to go about selling your stuff. The expense of building a website and then arranging the sales, it all stinks of hassle and cost. There's a much easier way and it can be done in a similar way to having your own website, but for just a few pounds.

 

The best solution is to advertise all your items in one place where your "online garage sale" visitors can brose through your items and if they see something they like they can contact you to buy it.

 

icLocal offer subscription plans for exactly this scenario. A subscription plan allows you to create multiple premium classified ads which are all linked together through your profile page. So you can list all the stuff from your garage sale in one place. Here's how to do it:

 

The right place to sell more than 1 or 2 items

There are a few ways to sell your stuff online, and if you only have 1 or 2 things to sell then you've probably found solutions in the past like eBay or another classified ads website.

The difference here is that you'll probably have several items to sell and there's a good chance you'll keep finding more things to sell and want to keep adding new items to your online garage sale.
