If you’re looking to sell garden equipment on classifieds, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Selling garden equipment in this economy has never been easier, but you still need to make sure you get the most for your equipment if you want it to sell quickly. Classified ads have always been a great way for people to sell all kinds of things, but gardening equipment is in a class of its own. When you’re trying to sell it on classifieds, here are some tips and tricks that will get you the best price possible.
One of the first things you should do when you want to sell your garden equipment is to take a good look at what you have to offer. This might sound obvious, but it’s something that I often forget and end up buying too much fertilizer or an extra box of seeds because I didn’t realize that I had so much to offer. A good rule to follow is that you’re selling items that must be useful to someone who would be buying them. If you don’t see yourself as having any use for the gardening tools you’re trying to sell, likely, they won’t be finding a use for them either, meaning they’ll wind up gathering dust in a corner and never being used.
Once you’ve taken a good look at your collection of gardening tools, go over them and see what condition they are in. Look for any rusted hardware, worn straps, or even missing handles; anything that could mean trouble for you when you bring the items in to sell. You should also check over the potting soil and any seed packets or fertilizer to make sure that they’re fresh and that you don’t have to spend money on new plants just the ones you’ve already got. Many times people will prefer the fact that you’re selling them fresh plants instead of having to purchase more pots and fertilizers and will pay more for the product since they know it’s going to get sued right away.
