5 Reasons To Start Selling Your Furniture on Craigslist

I've been a furniture seller on craigslist for years. It's easy, and safe, and can net you way more money than selling at a garage sale or yard sale. Here are the top five reasons why you should start selling your furniture on Craigslist:

It's Convenient

If you have furniture that needs to be sold, Craigslist is the best place to do it. You can sell your furniture at any time of the day or night, and there's no need for you to drive anywhere. The process is simple: set up an ad on Craigslist, describe what kind of item(s) you want to sell (and where they are located), then wait for interested buyers who will contact you directly via email or phone call!

If this sounds like something that would work well with your schedule—and it might if all of your friends are moving out right now—then this is definitely one way we recommend starting off as a new business owner: start small by selling some old pieces from around the house first before making big changes later on down the road.

You Can Get Way More Money

Selling your furniture on Craigslist can get you a lot more money than selling it at a secondhand shop or through eBay. When you sell your furniture directly to the public, you’re able to charge more than what they would pay for something new and in great condition. You also won’t have to worry about shipping costs or other fees that come with selling through an online furniture store or auction site like eBay or Amazon, which means there are no hidden charges.

If all else fails, try Craigslist!

You Don't Have to Deliver the Furniture

You don't have to move your furniture yourself.

If you want to sell your furniture, but there's no way you can get it from one place to another without doing all of the heavy lifting yourself, Craigslist has a solution for you: using their home delivery service. They'll come to pick up the item from wherever it is and deliver it directly into their own storage unit—and then pay for that storage space! This is especially useful if someone else wants to sell their house and needs help getting rid of some stuff so they can move on with life (or just because they're lazy).

Selling on Craigslist Is Safe

  • You can set up a meeting place.
  • Meet in daylight, preferably outside and in a public place.
  • Carry a weapon if you feel the need to protect yourself from potential buyers who might not be as nice or trustworthy as you.
  •  Ask for ID before letting anyone enter your home, especially if they seem suspicious (i.e., they're asking too many questions).
  •  Accept credit cards and driver's licenses as payment methods because it's safer than cash!

It's Easy

Craigslist is a great resource for selling your furniture. You don’t have to spend money on advertising or dealing with people coming to your house, but you can post an ad at any time of day or night.

Selling your furniture on craigslist is a great way to get rid of unwanted furniture.

Selling your furniture on craigslist is a great way to get rid of unwanted furniture. You can list all kinds of items, including:

  • Furniture - This is the most common type of item you'll want to sell. Craigslist is by far the most popular place for buying and selling used furniture.
  • Electronics - As long as it's working, there's no reason why you shouldn't sell electronics on craigslist! If it doesn't work anymore but still works fine enough for you to use as-is without any issues (or if you're tired of looking at your old computer monitor), then throw it up for sale!
