Secondly what you will have to do is to find storage facilities Brooklyn is offering. All the extra things with which you will end up after the move, store here. Whatever you don’t like. Things that won’t be useful for you anymore. Now you probably have more new things after the relocation. So, to avoid throwing things away, store them. This way, you will be prepared for selling whatever you have to sell. But first, deal with your new home and rearrangements, because you might need some of your old belonging still.

Make a plan before selling your belongings online

As for everything to be successful, you will need to develop a good plan. This will help you, in addition, to avoid unnecessary mistakes on the way. And by following the plan, things will go smoothly and much faster than without one. Take a pen and paper and start writing down the things you will have to do before selling your belongings online.

  • Clean all of your belongings
  • Check the condition and if they are in good condition for selling
  • Re-think. Are those things you will not need anymore, at all?
  • Get a camera.
  • Make good pictures.
  • Look for the original price and decide on some reasonable prices. It is second hand after all.
  • Post them on the platform!

Easy as that, isn’t it? Don’t worry, even if you are not a good photographer, with a few small tips you will manage to make perfect pictures of your belongings! And remember, do not at any cost lie in the description about your belongings. Be completely honest about its condition, usage, and how old it is. You don’t want to be one of the scammers.

Supplies you will need for a photoshoot

It is not a kind of photoshoot for papers, so it doesn’t have to be professional. But, when we are looking for something online to buy, the picture is the main thing we look at. That is the reason why you want it to look perfect, without mistakes. Therefore, get the following things and start!

  • A decent camera. If you don’t own one, you can borrow it or rent it for a few hours.
  • Room with large windows and lots of natural lighting. If it’s possible, you can do it outside, too.
  • Large, white sheet for the background.
  • Something to attach the sheets on walls with.
  • Don’t forget your creativity! 

How to take good pictures when selling your belongings online?

Now that you have all the needed supplies, you can finally start. Whether if it’s outside or inside, put the sheets on the wall and attach them. Let them fall down the wall, but make them a bit lose. Not too straight. And the part on the floor, scrunch it a bit too. Now, start with the one belonging at the time, whatever it is. You can divide them into groups of categories if you think that will be more organized and easier.

Put it in the center of the frame. It would be perfect if you had a tripod with the camera too. Avoid any shade on the object. Don’t use the flash. And you need to take multiple pictures. From each corner and side of the belonging, you are selling. The main idea is to show the condition of the object through those pictures. Take straight pictures following grid lines and don’t cut the objects. Save them and upload later in their natural form, don’t put any filters or effects.

Pack your belonging properly for shipping when someone buys them

To make the customers happy, you will have to deal with the packing too. You will need to supply yourself with a few more things, such as cardboard boxes in different sizes, ducktape, and bubble wrap. Also, have some old newspapers nearby. There are companies that provide moving boxes Brooklyn. So go out there and find some. Each belonging wrap in bubble wrap carefully and secure with duck tape or scotch tape. Put it inside the box, fill it in with styrofoam balls, or scrunched old newspaper. Close the box, duck tape it again. And it is ready to be shipped!

Choose the platform wisely when selling your belongings online

There are much selling and buying platforms on the internet. But, you want to avoid scams. Therefore, it is advisable to search for the most popular and reliable shopping platform before you even start. You will probably find a few of them, but choose the one you prefer the most. And the one you would choose if you were buying the kind of belongings you are selling. Double-check before selling it to someone. First ask for your money, then do the shipment.
