Listing Guidelines

Guidelines for selling on Garage Online Sale 

You can post listings of gently used home decor and furniture pieces. Here are our key requirements to follow. Please, make sure you read this guideline before creating your first listing. Garage Online Sale team checks every listing before publishing and declines those that do not meet our guidelines. 

  1. All items should be cleaned and sanitized or professionally cleaned or reupholstered depending on the type of item.
  2. Items should not have any visible stains -- otherwise, they can't qualify as "gently used".
  3. Light signs or wearing or mild scratches are ok.
  4. Rips or broken parts are not allowed -- otherwise, the item can't qualify as "gently used".
  5. Clearly communicate the condition of the item and the number of years it was used. This information is indicated in the 'Time used' listing field with the dropdown menu.
  6. If you are selling a furniture set (like a dining room or bedroom set) and would like to sell it separately (like a dining table, dining chairs, buffet). Please, post each item of the set separately. As well as take photos of each item separately. 
  7. Follow our Photo Guide to create great photos. We are not magicians -- if your furniture looks unattractive in the pictures, it will be very hard to sell it.
  8. Do not use photos from the manufacturer's/brand's website if you don't own the rights to post them. You can only post your own photos. 
  9. Price your items reasonably. Check the market first. The minimum price of any item on Garage Online Sale is $20.
  10. The buyer is responsible for checking the item and making sure the condition of the piece is satisfying.
  11. We encourage personal pick up rather than shipping, so you can make sure the item you are buying is in good condition.
  12. We do not provide the resources to examine the listing item in person before posting. The seller is responsible for the posted item's described condition.
