The possibilities are endless. But first, you’re going to need to upgrade your old blender to one with new blades that can effortlessly destroy those fruits and veggies.
Should you get a bigger blender so you can force the kids to drink their veggies? Or maybe you’re tired of cleaning the blender that you’ve got now, so downsizing to a small bullet might feel more appropriate. Either way, you’ve gotta get rid of your current blender first.
Instead of tossing away all the money you spent on this one, selling your blender is a much better option. Read on to learn the ins and outs of selling a blender.
Before you accept your first offer, find out what your blender is worth. The best way to determine the worth of your current blender is to find out how much it’s being sold for today.
If you don’t feel like hunting down your specific blender in 3 or 4 stores, check online first. Stores like Sears, Walmart, and Target list all of their products online, so even if they don’t have it in stock right now, you’ll still find it’s online listing.
Remember that if your blender was the newest model 2 years ago, it probably isn’t anymore. This can seriously depreciate the value of your blender.
Once you’ve determined the current value of your model blender, you’ll need to take into account how long you’ve had it. A year? Two? Be sure to average its age and condition into your selling price.
Once you’ve determined how much you’re going to ask for your blender, you’ll need to find the right place to sell it. You can sell through a private buyer or you can go through a local pawn shop.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both.
Private Buyer: You may be tempted to sell to a private buyer as you might make a slightly higher profit, however you’ll need to be careful to watch for scammers. There are “professional scammers” out there that have perfected the art of stealing your money.
Pawn Shops: In order for a pawn shop to make a profit, they’ve got to buy your item for slightly less than what it’s worth so they can flip it for a profit. The advantage to selling to a pawn shop, however, is that you can guarantee your money is safe. Pawn shops are highly regulated for the security of all parties involved.
