Looking to sell that old guitar you never play or the camera stand that was never put to good use? It is time to do some spring cleaning and sell the stuff in your house to make some money.
There are so many platforms (online or offline) to sell used items and you can make some money from selling your used items to recoup some of your money.
1. Cash Converters
With nine branches in Klang Valley and Johor, you can easily bring any used items from wallets, cameras, PlayStation consoles and even shoe racks to sell to Cash Converters at any of their outlets. By offering solutions to people who seek to sell their items fast to get immediate cash, Cash Converters has been operating in Malaysia since it opened its first branch at Taman Sea, Petaling Jaya in 2001.
The store takes in household products such as TV’s, Hi-Fi, electrical appliances, computers, jewellery, sporting goods, musical instruments and other items such as clothing, books, and magazines. However, do take note that bulky furniture and large electronic products such as refrigerators and washing machines are usually not traded.
Their staff are well-trained to evaluate all items in line with the store’s policy and you will not have to worry about getting paid under market value.
2. Car Boot Sales/Flea Markets
You can leverage on any car boot sale or flea markets that are organized from time to time around Klang Valley or within your residential community. Just make sure to do your research and find out the deposit or fees needed to book a spot for selling your used items. Usually, it costs around RM40 to RM60 and the weekends are always a good time to spend with your family or friends to get rid of your old stuff and earn some extra cash together.
You get to bargain with your customers for a better price and also mix around with the local community. Only thing is some of the car boot sales are in open parking lot spaces with no shade and the heat can be annoying. Bring your umbrella and plenty of water.
