We can’t pop into your home and sort the trash from the treasure for you, but we can help you sell cameras, old iPads, laptops and other unwanted gadgets that are just taking up space!
While you’re visiting us to use our sell my iPad London service, here are a few moneymaking tips to help you make the most of unused parking spaces, a great imagination and bags of free time!
Do you live somewhere interesting or unique? Media producers are always on the lookout for locations. There are plenty of online directories where you can register your home (along with plenty of photos and a thorough description) and maybe pique the interest of a location scout. Locations around London and Manchester are typically top of the queue.
Your Parking Space
Again, London and surrounding areas are going to be high on the list (it’s estimated around a million people commute into the city each day) If you’ve got a driveway in Greater London that’s vacant during the day, you can rent it out to commuters. Websites like www.yourparkingspace.co.uk and www.parkatmyhouse.com can help you find someone to rent on a short or long-term basis.
How’s your imagination? Feel like maybe you’ve got a book locked away in there? Mills & Boone novels number amongst the most read in the world, and nearly all of them are now sourced freelance on single novel contracts. Fiercely competitive but a great way to nab a few thousand quid if you’re successful.
Mystery shopping doesn’t need to take up your entire weekend. Every retailer, restaurant, travel company and hotel wants to know what it’s like to shop, eat, travel and sleep under their brand. Register with an online company and just accept a few jobs when you’ve got the time. (You could even get a free weekend trip out of it!)
We buy gadgets in London and around the U.K, including folks wanting to sell cameras, iPads etc. But we bet gadgets aren’t the only worthy bits and bobs in your home that could make a bit of cash. One of our office team recently found out the book they’ve been using to make their staircase look more rustic is actually a 120-year-old biography of a famous minister and worth just over £100! The whole one-person’s-trash-is-another’s-treasure thing is true, especially at the moment when most folks are a bit strapped for cash.
