Selling items online can simplify the moving process by leaving less things to pack.

Selling items online can simplify the moving process by leaving less things to pack.

Holding a moving sale is nothing unusual before packing up for a new house. But while having a sale can attract a number of people from the local area, selling those items online can reach a much wider audience.

The first key to selling something online is to find the right medium. While it may be tempting to put everything on an online auction site, the internet firm WildBlue Deals says that larger items are more suited to an online classified site such as Craigslist. Auctions, the site says, are a better market for collectibles or hard-to-find items.

When listing items, the site says that it's always best to include a clear picture and description of the item to prevent any returns. It's also important to set aside a number of boxes for shipping, so they they don't get filled with everything that's being packed up for the move.

The online sales world has experienced near-constant growth recently. Internet Retailer reports that ecommerce sales in this year's second quarter topped $78 million.
