4 Great Ways To Sell Your Unwanted Junk
In this consumerist age we live in, it’s easy to grow bored of your old stuff.
New dresses quickly become stale, your brand new telly rapidly looks worn out to your eyes, and the PS4 game you purchased six months ago might as well have a ‘sell by date’ sticker on the back.
But one thing never goes out of fashion, and that’s selling your old tat for cold hard cash. And these days there’s an endless array of websites, shops, and apps to help you do exactly that.
To save you some leg work, we’ve found some of the best places to sell your unwanted stuff. Whether you’re looking to hawk records, punt your old furniture, or simply declutter your living space, you’ll find the perfect selling services for you in the list below.
- Music Magpie
Music Magpie has grown into one of the biggest purchasers of books, DVDs, CDs and multimedia in the market today.
How has it managed this herculean feat? By being easy to use, clear and reliable.
To start selling your products with Music Magpie, all you need to do is open an account with them and use their app’s barcode scanner to find out how much your item is worth. Then it’s simply a case of packing up your items (even a shoebox will suffice here) and sending them off to Music Magpie HQ. You’ll receive payment for your goods once they’ve been delivered and fully assessed by the Magpie team.
The cash you’ll receive for your items isn’t likely to be high, but for ease of use, Music Magpie is a great service.
- We Buy Any Stairlift
There are many reasons you might need to part with a stairlift in your home. We Buy Any Stairlift, a UK-based company that will take your stairlift off your hands and pay you for the privilege.
Drivers for the company will travel anywhere within the British Isles, making this one of the simplest ways to get rid of a stairlift.
eBay’s reputation fluctuates more than the stock market, but it’s remained the kingpin of auction sites for a very good reason – it works better than any brand out there. Creating an EBay listing is simpler than ever since they revamped their site. Their fees can feel a little high, but the quality of service offered by eBay remains greater than its competitors.
With shops in seemingly every British city and town, videogame and DVD emporium CEX has come to dominate the high street thanks to its low prices, varied selection and great trade-in rates.
To trade-in an item at CEX, all you have to do is enter one of their stores and have your item evaluated. It’s then up to you if you want to sell. Again, don’t expect to be offered millions for your battered copy of Point Break, but this is another no-frills way to part with unwanted clutter.
