It’s Time To Clean Up
Between Christmas and New Year and all the parties and presents to the complete lack of time, your house may look like a disaster after the holidays. The first couple of weeks after the holidays are the perfect time to start cleaning. When we say cleaning, we don’t just mean shoving everything into boxes and putting it in storage. We mean getting rid of clutter. But remember, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, so here’s how both shippers and drivers can benefit by following a few cleaning tips.
For every new gift you receive, get rid of two items in its place
Receiving all those Christmas gifts is so much fun but what happens after years of gift giving and receiving? We end up trying to find room for everything. We recommend that for every new gift you receive you get rid of two old items. For example for every toy your child receives find two that are just sitting around and not being played with and start an auction pile. Contacting a local online auction is relatively easy as well as hiring a driver to transport your items to the auction.
Six Things To Sell Right Now
The same rule applies for all the other things you have been holding onto that are not being used. Try cleaning up one room at a time and before you know it the whole house will be clean. If you have kids get them involved by gathering up all their toys, clothes and books they do not use anymore. Make this a race to see who can get their room the cleanest. When sorting, try to fit your clutter into one of these three categories donate, throw away and sell and be sure to have plenty of boxes on hand for the kids to place their books and old toys.
Here are six things you may have around your house we all could get rid of and make some extra money.
- Hand-me-down furniture you no longer need
- Antiques with value that don’t match your décor
- Boxes of outgrown toys
- Artwork you don’t like
- Boxes of CD’s you’ve digitized
- Boxes of books you’ve already read
Find an Online Auction for your Items
There are multiple types of auctions from a shipping auction to antiques and household items. Be sure to find out the auction costs and how you will be paid at the end of the auction. Then it’s time to find your driver to transport all those treasures to the auction house.
Hire a Driver
Being prepared when the driver arrives will not only help you stay organized but help the driver be able to load more evenly and quickly. Boxing up the items will make it easier for the driver to pick up your items for the transfer to the auction house. Finding a driver can be a simple process by utilizing online shipping platforms that allow you to choose a driver that fits your needs.
