How to sell your garden furniture, tools and equipment for the best price

Spring is here and it’s that time of year again when you will no doubt be turning your attention to heading into the garden. Gardening has always been loved by many. However, nowadays it truly is a really trendy hobby. And if your home boasts a beautifully stocked, low maintenance garden complete with a well-considered layout, it may add value to your property as well as boosting its appeal and saleability. What is not to love about getting out into your garden…?

From pretty patio furniture which offers the perfect excuse to sit and relax with a cup (or glass!) of something, to pots, power tools and horticultural equipment which is up to the job of making your life easier and your garden more beautiful. There are always plenty of ways to enhance your garden. There is something great about having an attractive outdoor space, and more people than ever are turning their gardens into alfresco dining rooms.

So if you are looking to sell your unwanted garden furniture, tools and equipment in place of updated models and you are keen to get the very best price then read on.

Inspect your unwanted garden furniture thoroughly before putting it up for sale. Chips, cracks, sun exposure, missing bits, broken parts and amateur paint touch-ups… it all screams ‘bad buy’. What’s more, some materials such as rattan and wood will naturally degrade. Spend time doing a little remedial work first before you start to promote your unwanted garden furniture for sale.

The same can be said for garden tools and equipment. Inspect it thoroughly before putting it up for sale and make sure everything is in good working order. You will also attract a higher price if you spend a bit of time ensuring things look as good as possible and work as they should.

Be realistic with your asking price. Take into consideration wear and tear, as well as sun damage and exposure to the elements. Garden furniture, no matter how well it is cared for and looked after, it will also degrade faster than indoor furniture due to the very nature of its intended use. Bear this in mind when setting an asking price.

Promote it well. Highlighting key selling points in the product description is a great way to help potential buyers realise they have stumbled upon a great find. Garden furniture should always be built to last, so really focus on quality as a USP. Be truthful and accurate in your description and try to think about whether you can promote any little things of interest too which will help to make your unwanted items stand out.

Measure and accurately list dimensions and sizes. With modern homes and gardens ever decreasing in size, getting the right garden adornments in the right sizes is important for prospective buyers. The last thing a prospective buyer wants is to get excited about having found a great patio set, only to discover it won’t fit into their back garden.

Finally, why not try your hand at upcycling. It’s all the rage at the moment and you don’t need to be an artist to have a go at transforming old, unwanted garden items into something highly desirable and saleable. From beautiful, artisan bird feeders constructed from an old garden sieve, to horticultural crates whipped into pretty planters. There is no limit to what you can achieve!
