Tips for getting the most for your furniture.
Always make the time to clean your items. Take a damp cloth and thoroughly wipe down the entire item, inside and out. Also put a light coat of polish on it. This helps it shine to your customers.
Purchase a stain stick at any local hardware store and fill in the scratches. This makes the item look newer and creates more value. You will always use stain sticks so keep them handy for the rest of your furniture at home.
Turn your item over and tighten the screws and bolts. Chairs, tables and dressers all have legs that loosen with time.
If the item is newer, bring the receipt with you and any original information. This lets the customer know more.
You may want to do some research on the internet and see if it is still being sold or what it sells for new!
Many times furniture will absorb odors. Fabreeze is a great product that will help remove these odors.
Cover your item when transporting it! It is sad when you get it to your destination and the item has new scratches or dents.
