That’s Not Enough

Often as Seniors Move Organizers one of our tasks is to help our clients sell those items they will no longer need or have room for. Because many of our clients are downsizing, furniture is usually among the first things to be discarded.

Often, we feel like the Bad News Bears.

Unless your furniture is truly an antique its value will be only a fraction of what you paid for it. There are a few reasons for this:

  • Styles change.
  • Wear and tear.
  • Over Sized.

A quick look through buy ‘n sell websites will give you an idea of current pricing for particular used pieces. We also work with consignment shops, auctioneers and used furniture dealers who give estimates for furniture.

You might also consider donating your furniture. The Furniture Bank will get it to recent immigrants and refugees, or to others in need.

Unfortunately buyers don’t pay for sentimental value. Don’t let the furniture’s sentimental value cloud your judgment.
