Best items to sell on eBay:
Sporting equipment Sporting equipment, including anything from football boots to hockey sticks, can fetch a high price from the right buyer. Such items are invariably very expensive to buy new, which means, although second-hand if they have been properly looked after and cared for and are still in working order, they can be sold on for good money, even after years of use. As with any second-hand item, it is crucial to do your research and make sure you are getting a fair price for your equipment. Once you have an idea of what your equipment is worth, the next step is to find buyers.
PlayStation or XBox Consoles When selling a second-hand PS4 or Xbox, there are several things to keep in mind. Firstly, check that the console is complete with all cords and accessories. Secondly, make sure to inspect the condition of the hardware; look for any scratches or dents on the casing and ensure that all the ports and disc drive are in working order. Be sure to list this information with your listing so there can be no misunderstanding about the condition of the console. Finally, check that you have all the relevant paperwork such as guides and manuals; these will add value to your sale and give the buyer peace of mind.
Used and Refurbished gardening and work tools. If you have goods left over from a DIY product – why not sell them? From a leftover pack of flooring tiles to pots of paint or plumbing tools – someone else could make use of them. We found a mixed job lot of plumbing parts selling for £60 and a surplus bath panel for £20.
Jewellery – even broken jewellery can be sold. Broken jewellery can often be sold or upcycled and re-made into something really unique. Keep an eye out at charity shops and jumble sales. A current listing on eBay has 20 pieces of broken jewellery for sale for £20. Some sellers list by kilogram – so there is a listing for 1kg of broken jewellery for sale for £5.
Vinyl Records You can’t beat that crackling sound of an old record. Hunt out in charity shops where you might pick up some records for just a few pounds and then sell on for more. Currently, on eBay, there is a Pink Floyd album for £19.99 and a Blondie album for nearly £15.
Broken Technology People will buy broken parts to strip and re-use or fix. Currently, eBay has a damaged PC for £42. There is also a PC tower with missing parts priced at £199.
