Garage sales and lawn sales are all the rage in Alice Springs due to the transient nature of the population and the expense of daily living there. A lot of stuff is recycled there for many reasons.

Alice Springs being where it is, I can imagine the main reason to pass on household belongings to someone else when leaving this unique environment, is the cost of a removal truck to the nearest population centre.

When people first move to Alice for work, finding a place to live is the primary goal and furnishing your place as inexpensively as possible is a close second. The challenge for newcomers is to find reasonable quality furnishings and homewares that will last the distance, and still have some selling value when it's time to leave Alice for other destinations.

Garage sales and lawn sales are the ideal way to buy and sell furnishings and homewares in Alice Springs. Everything is viewable and touchable, and everything is for sale at the same time. Just imagine getting a house full of stuff in one or two days.

I don't see many garage sale ads from Alice Springs, but I often think that a garage sale advertisement on could be the ideal way to buy and sell goods in Alice Springs. Egaragesales provides plenty of space for sellers to tell buyers what they've got for sale before the buyer gets there.

Imagine if all Alice Springs garage sales were advertised on Egaragesales. Sellers would be able to detail exactly what is for sale, how to find the house, give an indication of prices if they want - all for one low $10 fee. They could also add up to 10 photos for another $5 to give buyers an extra reason to make the trip out to you.

What this means for the buyers, is that they would know exactly what is for sale at each garage sale, and go to the ones that are most likely to have what they want. Imagine the savings in fuel. No more driving long distances only to find the next garage sale doesn't have what you want.

So if you are having a garage sale in Alice Springs, advertise with Egaragesales and attract the people who want the things you are selling. It is important to remember our Ad View Guarantee because you may well get a full refund of your ad price if your ad doesn't get at least 60 clicks - meaning 60 full views of your garage sale ad. Something to think about.

To advertise your garage sale now simply go to Place An Ad and start filling out what you are selling.
