Where Can I Sell Power Tools?
Tool Selling Guide

I'm guessing that if you're on my site, then you're a lover of power tools. There's no doubt about it, they're a great thing to own and can come in useful in many situations. Once you have a decent tool kit, you'll be good to go for all types of jobs. But if you're anything like me, then you can probably go a bit crazy sometimes and feel the need to buy every tool under the sun. This can cause you to have a bit of an excess of tools - some of which you probably don't use very often and may just be sitting there gathering dust.

My advice would be to have a bit of a clean out of your garage, and sort your tools into two piles and ask yourself "Have I used this tool in the last 6 months?" If the answer is "No", then I suggest selling the tool, not only will you get some cash back in your pocket, but you will also free up some storage space in your garage or toolbox. Once you've done this, you may then ask yourself "where can I sell power tools?". There's a few different options, I'm going to suggest the ones that I've used and think they work well.

Craigslist - Craigslist can be great for a quick sale. I've put power tools on there for sale, and had buyers come and collect the tools just a couple of hours later. The only downside I've found with Craigslist is that you will get a few people trying to knock your price down a bit. If your price is negotiable, then that is fine, but if you prefer to stay to a set price then make sure you make it clear in your advertisement that the price is firm and not negotiable.

eBay - Like Craigslist, eBay is very convenient in the sense that you can set up an advert all within a few minutes and have people bidding on your item in no time. You can either set your item as an auction, or have a "buy it now" price where you can set a price that the customers can pay and immediately win the item. You will have to remember that it will cost to send your power tools, so be sure to have an idea of how much that will cost before you set the price.

Yard Sale - Although it requires a bit more effort to set up and advertise than our other methods of selling your power tools, a yard sale can pay off in the fact that you may actually get rid of all of your items in one day, therefore saving you the hassle of selling everything separately. You may also meet some like-minded people and forge some great friendships.

Local Classifieds - With the rise of the Internet, local classified ads have become much less popular. But they can still be a great option for people who don't feel comfortable buying something off of the internet, or don't even have the internet.

After your next garage clean out, when you're wondering "where can I sell power tools?", be sure to try out these methods. I guarantee you'll have some success.
