There is a saying that "you never get a second chance to make a good first impression." With that in mind, it is vital to be fully prepared to make a great impression on each date you go on. Here are some tips for people on dating success and making an impression that will last.
You need to ascertain out where your nearest car boot is located and what day of the week it is on.. You can usually find this information in your local paper or on a car boot sale directory such as Your Booty.. Once you have found your nearest sale, make sure you phone the organisers to confirm it is on at the weekend, as many only run for so many weeks in the year..
I have lost count of the amount of times people have been left disappointed when they tell me they reached their local car boot sale only to find that it closed for the season 2 months previously.
It is a good idea to get to your chosen car boot early, especially if it's a particularly large sale. You'll get a better pitch nearer the entrance of the sale, where customer footfall is at its highest. I recommend that you phone the organisers to confirm when sellers start arriving as advertised items are usually inaccurate I have no idea why!
It can be difficult deciding whether or not to price your goods. On the one hand, pricing goods can help to get sales from casual buyers who do not like to ask you for a price. On the other hand, if you want to reduce your prices later in the today as you become more desperate (!), then you will need to reprice your items or remove any price labels.
It is a great idea to do a little bit of research about what you intend to sell before you load up your car. Some items sell considerably better than others, and you don't want to clutter up your stall with items which have little chance of selling. For example, if you intend to take a large number of books or old video tapes, then you might struggle to make much more than the pitch will cost you!
Haggling at car boot sales is a British tradition, and it is something alot of us are very good at! In your defence you might want to inflate your prices slightly so that when you drop your prices you are still near the original price you had in mind.
Research before hand If you want to get fair prices for your items, then it is essential that you have a basic idea of how much that actual item is worth. In this respect, eBay is a great reference as you can view both active and completed listings to see how much similar items are selling for.
One word of warning though you won't get anything like an items true value at a car boot! If, for example, you had a mobile phone that would sell for �50 on eBay then you are going to struggle to get anything more than �20 for it at a car boot sale.
You should also make sure you don't say anything like 'It sells for �50 on eBay so I want �45 for it' as this infuriates buyers. They don't get up early to be told about eBay and they will usually tell you to go and list it on eBay instead!
