Don't Put These Items in Your Storage Unit, Sell Them Instead

Not Everything Has to Go in Your Storage Unit

Storage Unit Selling Items

Although it’s tempting to hoard your things and just put everything in your storage unit, it’s not necessarily practical. Instead, you should sell at least some of your things, especially if they’re items that typically sell quickly. This will save you the trouble of moving them and clear up some room in your storage unit. Today in the Affordable Family Storage blog, we’ll discuss some of the items that are easiest to sell.


If you have any televisions that you don’t use, why not sell them instead of storing them? Televisions can be kind of a hassle to store anyway since storing them at too hot or cold of a temperature can ruin them. Of course, Affordable Family Storage offers climate-controlled storage options, but if you don’t want to upgrade to a climate-controlled unit just because of a TV, you can save some money. Listing your TV on the Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist will usually ensure that it gets sold pretty quickly. Fairly priced TVs are always in demand, especially if they’re HDTVs.


Of course, you won’t want to get rid of all of your furniture, but it’s good to look at things you might not need anymore. If you’re moving into a new place, maybe some of your old furniture won’t fit. Instead of trying to put it in storage, just sell it instead. People are searching for furniture online all the time, so you’re bound to have something that someone is looking for.

Video Game Systems

If you have new or retro video game systems, you can sell them quickly for a fairly decent price. You can ask for even more money if you’re able to include extra controllers, video games, carrying cases, and other accessories with the system. You can also sell the games and accessories on their own.


If you have any large appliance you need to get rid of such as washers and dryers, microwaves, refrigerators, and more, you can usually sell these pretty easily. In order to get a decent price for them, make sure you clean them before posting pictures.
