Time and time again I am asked "Egaragesales, .....what, is it like ebay?" or "... a garage sales web site? Do you sell garages or sheds?" It seems many people still dont quite get the flexibility, low cost and reachability of online garage sale advertising. As the newspapers make it difficult for me to explain Egaragesales through the traditional garage sale columns, I have to continue to rely on word of mouth to get the message across. Happily it is working.

The Egaragesales concept is simple. The web site provides a place where people can just focus on the advertising and finding of garage sales around Australia. It doesn't have the geographical limitations and the inflexibility of printed newspaper ads. People looking for garage sales don't have to read a handful of papers to reach suburbs within a 15km radius and they don't have to try to rush through the newspaper ads on Saturday morning. Instead they can do suburb searching days in advance, read detailed descriptions of what's for sale, and plan a route the day before. Advertisers can advertise when they want without being limited by newspaper deadlines; they can describe EVERYTHING they have for sale and they can update their ad anytime as well.

So, what is Egaragesales? It's not a classifieds website where you sell items one at a time like the trading post. It's not an auction web site like eBay. And it's not completely inflexible like a newspaper ad!

It is a web site that is totally dedicated to the garage sale community - whether as a seller or a buyer - where garage sale ads are read by people looking for garage sales; where people who go to the Egaragesales web site are looking for just garage sales. And where else can you place an ad for a garage sale, at a reasonable price, with the certainty that the the web site will attract just  people looking to buy goods from garage sales? 

The important difference between the different types of website, is your motivation for selling. Newspapers target everyone but only in the local geographic area. eBay is terrific at helping you sell individual items to the highest bidder. Web site classifieds help you sell items at a fixed price.

Garage sales are the best way to move a large amount of goods in as short a possible time. The main goal is to move the goods out to new homes to save the cost, and disappointment, of having to dump things that still have some life left in just one weekend. A person will probably be holding a garage sale to spring clean the house; to move baby things to make room for new toys; or to move house. This is a specialised type of sale, and Egaragesales is the best placed web site to help people advertise and find garage sales across Australia. The web site is loaded with tips and hints to help you have a successful sale; or to help you find that bargain. Garage sales is all Egaragesales does. A specialised web site for a specialised way of moving bulk stuff to new homes. is now Australia's BIGGEST garage sale website, attracting over 2,000 people per day, and unlike auction sites like ebay or classifeds sites like gumtree or the trading post -- we remain 100% focused on helping YOU promote private garage sales. 

No rubbish ads. No auctions. No Google ads. Its quick, its easy, you can use it 24/7, and it gets you the best possible garage sale exposure at a very reasonable price.

Egaragesales - helping buyers and sellers meet - and move loads of stuff quickly.
