How many times have you found yourself talking about having a garage sale, but you just never got around to it? Well, if you’re getting ready to move to a new home, now is the perfect time to set everything up! In fact, there are three major reasons why you should have a garage sale before you relocate.

Cut Back on the Clutter

With all of the packing and organization going on during a move, the last thing you need is clutter getting in your way. Therefore, you should take the time to go through all of your cupboards and closets and purge your home of things you haven’t used or worn within the last year. Not only will this make it easier to pack your home for your move, but it will also help you get a fresh start in your new house.

Save Some Cash

It’s basic math: the less stuff you have to relocate, the less your move will cost you. Therefore, it’s better to sell your unwanted things BEFORE you leave. Otherwise, you’re going to end up spending unnecessary money for the Ventura movers to transport items that are just going to go in the trash anyways. By cutting back on the weight of your household goods, you can leave more wiggle-room in your budget for any unexpected expenditures.

Make Spending Money

Moves are expensive, especially if you have a long distance relocation that requires gas and hotel stays. Unless your employer is paying for your move, it is up to you to find room in your budget for all of these extra costs. Rather than simply throwing away the things you don’t use anymore, you can make a little extra money to help cover these additional expenses by hosting a garage sale before you start packing. 

As soon as you know you’re relocating, you should immediately start to separate your things into two piles to prepare for your garage sale. The more time you have, the more opportunities you have to make sales without worrying about the stress of everthing else. You can also save yourself a lot of time and money by hiring a Ventura moving company, such as Hilford Moving & Storage. Call to find out how our local moving services in Ventura can reduce the stress of moving or fill out our online form to request a free moving cost estimate.
