But we don’t want to just throw it away. What a waste! Some of that stuff may be worth money! In fact, an eBay/Nielsen survey found the average American may have $3000 in “junk” items lying around their house unused. Crazy!
eBay is one option for shipping, BUT it requires a credit card or paypal, and most annoyingly – shipping…AND you have to deal with returns from the buyer. eBay gets you lots of interest, but it’s sometimes more work than it’s worth.
Craisglist is another good option for selling to local buyers, but it’s a Wild Wild West dealing with a barrage of badly-typed emails and text messages from shady people asking to meet you in some back alley somewhere. Not a good idea!
PawnGuru.com gets you cash offers from local shops. No shipping. No shady people. Just cash offers from local registered businesses. Most PawnGuru.com users get multiple offers for their stuff within a few hours, and can get their cash that same day!
It’s also totally free for users. You don’t even need to register. Just submit information about your item and how much money you’d like, and we’ll deliver real-time cash offers to your email throughout the day from local shops. Items with photos attached get even better results!
So clean out your basement! Get those valuables out of the closet! Submit them to PawnGuru.com and find out what sort of treasures you have!
