Hall Lane Long Island Movers

As our Long Island movers often tell clients, decluttering your house before a relocation not only saves you time but also money. Now, once you’ve set aside what you no longer need, you may not realize that you can make some extra cash to help defray moving costs. Sell items in gently used to excellent shape with the following easy-to-use, highly popular apps.

  1. Carousell

With Carousell, you can use your phone to quickly upload a picture of what you’d like to sell, adding extra details to your listing. Several advantages to Carousell include no commission or listing fees, direct messaging with potential buyers, and special interest groups. Plus, aside from being iPhone and Android compatible, it’s also totally free!

  1. OfferUp

Buy and sell locally with OfferUp, an app that’s available on iPhone and Android. You can check potential buyer profiles for reliability, instant message people who are interested in your items, and list your for-sale items under more than two dozen categories. While it is free, there is also a premium version with extra perks, such as promotional ads and top feature listings.

  1. VarageSale

Billed as an easy-to-use virtual garage, VarageSale, like the apps we’ve covered so far, comes in both the iPhone and Android version and is free. What’s particular about this app though is its verification process, as it manually performs identify checks to cut down on scams and secure transactions. As our Long Island movers can confirm, you can also view average response times and member ratings to help you decide which potential buyers you’d rather deal with.

  1. Craigslist

Although Craigslist has a very popular online platform, it’s also available as an iPhone and Android compatible app. Without a doubt, it’s one of the biggest classified ads online and, of course, free to list. Also, Craigslist allows you to easily renew, edit, and repost your ads.

  1. Facebook Marketplace

A little while back, Facebook decided to join the buy-and-sell bandwagon, inventing Marketplace to post all kinds of things for sale. An already existing tab on your Facebook account allows you to use the limitless power of social network to reach a massive number of users. Certainly, your visibility just couldn’t get any better! Again, Facebook Marketplace is free, and you can narrow down your listing by general area, city or even special interest groups.
