Decluttering Before a Move: How to Make More Money from Your Stuff

In the weeks and months before a move, there’s a lot on your plate. You’re booking movers, packing all of your belongings into boxes, and dealing with any lingering issues on either end. If you’re leaving Toronto for a new city, you may be spending hours driving back and forth to keep up.

On top of it all, you want to declutter your home and cut down on the number of things you need to move. The problem is that time is at a premium, and it’s tempting to take the easiest way out or just leave it all on the curb for garbage collection.

But when it comes to some of your valuables, you just need to know the best way to sell them. There are many avenues for selling old belongings: finding a specialized buyer, having a garage sale, and selling online.

#1 Specialized Buyers: Collectibles, Jewellery, and Scrap Gold

If you live in Toronto, you may be in the best possible place to unload valuables like jewellery, old gold, and collectibles. The city offers a robust network of collectors and buyers who can connect to those collectors if you have something of real value.

If you’re not sure where to sell scrap gold in Toronto, find a buyer who handles everything, including: bullion, jewellery, collectibles, silverware, watches, and other valuables.

Heading to a pawnbroker usually isn’t the way to get top prices for valuables, especially if they’re made from gold and silver. Look for a buyer who is transparent about pricing and open about how they handle different types of precious metals. If you’re selling designer jewellery, gold bullion coins, or anything with a high gold purity, the price difference can prove to be substantial.

#2 Online: Furniture, Electronics, and Big Ticket Items

The best price for your old flat screen or video game console isn’t waiting at a garage sale. You’re more likely to get a better price if you sell it online. There are plenty of online marketplaces out there, some of which are generic and others that specialize in certain types of goods.

The more time you can give yourself, the more likely you are to find the right buyer. Try to start several months ahead of your move. Now is an especially good time to sell furniture, as major retailers continue to face supply chain disruptions leading to unavailable products and long delays.

You can save yourself time if you’re willing to sell at a slightly lower price point by requiring buyers to pick up furniture themselves.

#3 Garage Sale: Try It Before you Donate

The good old-fashioned garage sale still has a place in the world, although it’s likely not the best place for valuable items. Use the garage sale as the last stop before donations. They can also be a lot of fun for the kids and a good way for them to sell their own unused belongings.
