Prepping Furniture For Selling

Clean and Refresh:

Before listing your furniture for sale, ensure it’s in its best condition. CARGO CABBIE recommends a thorough cleaning, including shaking out cushions, running a vacuum over it and using rubbing alcohol for stubborn stains.

Presentation Matters:

Giving careful consideration to the presentation of your furniture is crucial for attracting potential buyers and maximizing the chances of a successful sale. When preparing to sell your furniture, strategically place the items in an accessible and well-lit space where potential buyers can easily view and assess them.

Transparency is Key:

Be upfront about any imperfections in your furniture. If there are scratches or other issues, let potential buyers know in advance. By addressing imperfections, you demonstrate integrity, and this transparency not only sets realistic expectations for buyers but also builds credibility for you as a seller.



Professional Transport Services:

Consider hiring professionals like CARGO CABBIE for transporting and packing larger furniture items. This ensures safe and secure transit. Otherwise you will need to arrange for someone with a car or truck and some packing materials.

Detailed Listings:

Crafting detailed listings is a crucial step in ensuring a successful and transparent furniture selling process. Include your email address for inquiries, high-quality photos of different angles, accurate pricing, and specific dimensions in your online listings.

Research Your Market:

Before listing, research local prices to ensure fair compensation for your furniture. CARGO CABBIE emphasizes the importance of understanding the market for a successful sale. By familiarizing yourself with the current pricing landscape, you position yourself strategically, ensuring that your listed furniture reflects a fair and competitive value.

Best websites to sell used furniture online

Know before you go: there are several things you should keep in mind when it comes time for deciding how to sell your used furniture. We’ve created a list of things to take into consideration before listing your used furniture for sale online.

1. Facebook Marketplace ranks top of the list to sell lightly used furniture in Toronto. Although they don’t have options to pick up and deliver your furniture, it’s simple to create a post and communicate with potential buyers, and both the website and app make it easy to target your neighborhood through specific groups or the city as a whole.

2. began as a solely Canadian company and has now expanding into other major cities and countries. Fair warning: you may end up selling something and buying something else as Kijiji site acts as a marketplace to buy and sell furniture online with tons of options. Take a more detailed look at how it looks on their “How it Works” page.

3. Etsy is another company Torontonians love to sell lightly used furniture. Etsy is simple to use and has a solid and loyal user base. Simply submit your furniture with pictures and wait one business day for it to be reviewed, schedule a time for the furniture to be picked, and finally wait until your furniture is sold. 

4. Craigslist has been around since 1995 making it one of the oldest options available to those looking to buy or sell their used furniture pieces. The advantage here is that there’s strength in numbers – thousands of potential buyers can view listings at once which means more exposure for your items.

5. eBay is great if you have a lot of furniture to sell since it has more than 300 million listings across their site and app with new items being added every second. The downside here is that listing fees may add up quickly if your pieces are priced higher and some sellers also complain about the lack of visibility.

It’s the optimal solution for individuals and businesses seeking to efficiently sell a large volume of items, providing a sustainable alternative to discarding valuables and delighting local buyers with unique, repurposed goods at market value.

7. Offerup is another great option where everything from couches to dressers can be found at an unbeatable price.

The simplicity of the user interface is what makes this a terrific tools.
