We are going to be buying a new fridge soon and I have a question for anyone with experience. The place we are buying from will haul away our old fridge for free but I am wondering if I could get 50-100 bucks for it on Craigslist. I have plenty of experience selling there so its not about dealing with the ad or the callers (emailers) etc. Really I'm just wondering if there is a market out there. I'm happy to deal with a few tire kickers if it makes me the aforementioned 50-100 bucks but I don't want the thing sitting in my garage until June. Likely I wouldnt be able to get my car in there until its gone. SO, anyone have quick luck unloading things like this, or have them sit forever wishing they'd just had it hauled away?
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.
I've sold a washer and dryer set on there and got a couple hundred bucks for them. It's definitely worth a try. If you don't get any takers, just list it for free. It'll be gone in no time.
Agree with this. I've gotten rid of a few appliances and other odds and ends. Usually I wanted no more than $100 for it. When I've had no takers, I will often just put an ad on Craigslist or elsewhere that basically says,
"Free [appliance]. Sitting on the curb at [insert address]. You haul."
Gotten rid of some busted lawnmowers and an old crappy dryer that way within 3 days. Just make sure your neighbors don't mind you making your front yard look like a welfare-recipient's for a few days
