Why Craigslist's FREE section is so awesome
The FREE section of Craigslist is kind of awesome. Why is that? When you want to get rid of stuff and have someone pick it up, the Craigslist FREE section is for you.
Just list your item(s) with photos and a description including flaws, damage, etc. You should start getting phone calls, texts or emails pretty quickly. Soon, the stuff you want gone is being picked up by a person grateful to have whatever you wanted taken off your hands.
When I have clients who want to get rid of stuff before they sell or during escrow, I head over and take photos and list the items for them. I take the phone calls and texts and coordinate the pick up.
The clients don't get the tax write off, but sometimes the convenience is worth it.
