Posting the Product Online

  1. Choose a website that best suits your needs. Facebook Marketplace is ideal for household items, while Offer Up may get a bigger crowd for gaming systems.
  2. Use a white backdrop or solid color wall to take a photo. Take multiple photos at different angels.
  3. Is it broken or needs repaired? Let your customer know this up front.
  4. Add dimensions in your description and details to help sell the article.
  5. When you are ready to do the final sale, meet in a public place or have the product sent directly to the customer. This keeps everyone involved safe online.

Defender Self Storage is here when you want to store your keepsakes, but we can also give you tips for selling online. You can help your parents downsize and store the rest of their household items with us! As they sort through their belongings, post things online!
