We’ve listed a few ways to find new homes for furniture and household items you are ready to part with. We’ve discovered a consignment option which prides itself on stellar customer service by picking up your items to sell, photographing, pricing, advertising, storing and then delivering your sold items to the buyers.

How it works:
Sellers send pictures and descriptions of the items they want to sell to the folks at Move Loot and suggest a price. MoveLoot determines if they can sell your item, if so, they will they take 50% of the selling price.
