If you’re moving into a new house, the last thing that you would take along is all your old furniture or if you’re renovating, then all the more reason to liberate yourself from those antiques or huge monstrosities that were considered ‘wonderful’ a decade ago. Times change, fashions change so why not furniture trends? Pawnshops have the right choices for you in terms of furniture
However, going in for a new look for whatever reason, isn’t always simple. Furniture is bulky and what was in vogue yesterday, no longer is today. Hence, getting rid of it is not as simple and easy as it sounds. You want to make a clean break, get instant cash and just move on. But do on-line auction sites and consignment stores work that way? Garage sales could be even worse—so designated pawn shops could be your best bet if you don’t want to put those items into cold storage, allowing the white ants and pests to do their job.
So, sell your used furniture to pawnshops, make a quick buck and go ahead. You need to remember however that you just have to take what you get with no room for niggling and haggling. If you’re not looking for great value, they are the best option.
The huge advantage with selling used furniture to pawn shops is that results are instant. You can just accept whatever the pawn brokers offer you, take the money and forget about the furniture then and there. The chances are that you may lose out on an opportunity to make a little more, but that’s all in the game, where ‘instant cash’ is pitted against ‘future deferred uncertain payment’.
Upholstered furniture is always hard to get rid of and finding a buyer might prove rather difficult. And, if the furniture has scratches or stains, then the selling is even tougher. Although pawn brokers may not rise up to your expectations with regard to price, they are a perfect fit for all those who are always in a state of inertia- both mentally and physically.
That said, it does pay to find out from Internet sites as to what you are likely to get for your old furniture. At the worst, you’ll know whether you are being taken for a ride or no by the pawn stores and maybe you can just narrow the price down so that it is closer to what you are expecting. While the pawn stores will definitely look to gain from the deal, sellers of used furniture can walk away with a little extra cash if they play their cards well.
Pawn shops have the unique advantage of ‘instant seller gratification’ and are the right approach when you want some immediate cash that could be set off against moving expenses or new furniture.
So keep that furniture looking new, dry clean the upholstery, remove the stains and repair the tears and you’re likely to come away with a little more than what you expected. Selling used furniture need no more be a hassle or a pain but a gain.
