PODS Phoenix Offers Cleaning Tips in Celebration of National Garage Sale Day
Moving and Storage Company offers tips for selling success at garage sales
By: PODS Phoenix
This year, National Garage Sale Day is Saturday, Aug. 11. PODS® Moving & Storage, servicing the Phoenix area is offering home owners and apartment occupant's helpful tips to start the decluttering process and organize their garages.
§ Do yourself a favor and get organized. Divide the garage into zones: Storage Zone, Charity Zone, Garage Sale Zone and Trash Zone. Relocate zoned items to a PODScontainer while de-cluttering and focus on the items to sell on National Garage Sale Day.
· If you don't use it, sell it. People often hold onto items that they do not need. Organize your belongings by sentimental value and prune the items you are unsure of. It's possible that the unsure items will sell for top dollar at the garage sale. PODS offers secure, climate controlled warehouses to store those sentimental items you are not ready to part with.
§ Drive a hard bargain. Everything for sale is negotiable. Remember that if someone wants your items, another person may want them too. Drive a hard bargain and get the most for your pre-loved treasures.
§ Anything that doesn't sell can be donated to charity. After the sale is over, make a trip to your nearest Goodwill, Salvation Army, thrift store or donation bin and donate the items that did not sell. You never know who may be able to use the unwanted items you have leftover.
§ Keep it tidy. Set some ground rules now that the garage is clean. These rules include keeping the parking area free from clutter. Sporting equipment and tools should be stored off the floor and in cabinets to keep the garage free from chaos.
"PODS is the perfect solution to help residents prepare for a successful National Garage Sale," says Mike Smith, Vice President of Operations for PODS® Phoenix. "A PODS container gives them enough space to store the belongings they want to keep and help them organize the items they want to sell at their garage sale."
