About the Author

John Romaine

John is the founder and creator of egaragesales. He takes care of everything, right through from developing the site, to writing articles, assisting members and sitting up til 3am sending out garage sale signs and answering emails. His interests include bodybuilding and e-commerce.

John Romaine has written 59 article(s) for egaragesales. wishes to advise that the Brisbane City Council’s policy on outdoor advertising, prohibits the placing of “directional signs” within the road reserve or any other public land i.e. footpaths, median strips, parks etc. The policy applies equally to to real estate agents and shop owners as it does to residents holding private garage sales.

The Brisbane city council considers that directional signs can contribute to visual clutter in our residential areas, lead to increased amounts of litter, and produce untidy streetscapes. Council officers work both during the week and on weekends to ensure Brisbane retains its clean and tidy image, thus ensuring its livability. Signs which are contrary to the policy (such as garage sale signs) may be confiscated and fines of $375 (for each sign) may be issued to the holder of the garage sale.

Don’t let fines eat into your garage sale profits. Please ensure any signage is located within your own property only and not located on streets, power poles or other street furniture such as bins and bus shelters.

For more information regarding signage policy contact Brisbane city council on 3403 8888 or your local council office. Brisbane City Council's website can be found here -

Residents outside the Brisbane city council area are advised to direct enquires to their local council office.

Regardless of your location, please be mindful of your local laws when placing your garage sale signs! If you are wanting to save yourself some hassle and time, you can get your garage sales signs by clicking HERE.
