Selling & Donating Furniture before Moving House

Whether you’re downsizing, upgrading or simply looking to reduce your furniture removalist bill, there are a variety of options for both selling and donating old and unwanted furniture before moving house to Gold Coast. The trick is to start early so that when you’re ready to request a quote from the removalists, you have a clear inventory of what needs to be transported. Below are some options for purging your home of unused items before the big day:

St Vincent’s de Paul
Donations made to Vinnies allow them to assist people in need and tackle a variety of social injustice issues Australia-wide. They will more than happily take clothing, books, music and bric-a-brac, but make sure it’s in good condition. If you wouldn’t give it to a friend, don’t give it to Vinnies! Larger furniture can be collected from various locations, so call your local store to find out if they can take care of the pickup for you.

eBay
Surplus electronics, old cars and automotive parts, designer clothing, collectors’ items, sporting equipment, kids toys and baby accessories – whatever you want to get rid of, you can be sure there’s someone in the world on eBay who is ready to take it off your hands. Opening an account is free and watching people bid for your items can be seriously addictive – don’t get too carried away…you’ll want your bed interstate! 

Gumtree
Gumtree started in Australia back in 2007 as a local classified ads and community site, with the aim of connecting people that were moving house to Gold Coast and other Australian cities who needed assistance with accommodation, jobs and finding friends. Nowadays, you can sell just about anything from spare car parts and pets to second-hand jewellery and board games. While you’re there, check out some services you may need before your move to Gold Coast, like garden maintenance and professional home cleaning.
