What should I sell before I move?

Thumbtack Editors

Some of the most common furniture pieces to sell before moving are couches, beds, bed frames and armoires. Often, these don’t match the décor of new homes. 

When considering what to sell before moving, think about why you need to sell the items. If you can’t get a good enough price for each item, it may not be worth it. Some items are simply too hard to move or the move would cost too much. In this case, selling them before you move may make sense.
