Your old appliance is worth more than you think- before you throw it, consider selling it.

Last updated on June 22nd, 2023

Whether you’re looking to replace an old appliance or just looking for a way to get rid of the one that’s been sitting in the garage since you moved in, there are plenty of options. And while it may seem like an overwhelming task at first glance, it doesn’t have to be! In fact, selling and replacing your appliances is actually easier than you might think—and it could save you some cash along the way.
Your dishwasher is worth more than you think.
  • Your dishwasher is worth more than you think.
  • Appliance buyback programs: If your appliance is still under warranty, it’s worth contacting the manufacturer to see if they’ll take it back. You may be able to trade your old appliance in for a new one at an attractive price—or even get cash back!
  • Appliance rental programs: Many people use their newer appliances as rental property because they don’t have room for them at home. But if this isn’t working out for you and there are no other options available (like selling), then consider renting out your old appliances through these companies so others can enjoy them instead of cluttering up space in their homes or garages. This way, everyone wins!
Do some research.
Before you sell your old appliance, do some research. You want to make sure that you’re getting the best price for it. Check out local classifieds and online sales sites like eBay and Craigslist. Make sure that any buyer can see the item in person so they can make an informed decision about its condition before buying it.
If you have an old appliance sitting in storage or outside somewhere, consider selling it—but only after doing some research on what kind of money people are willing to pay for similar items at that time period (if there’s an antique market).
Check to see if your appliance has a buy back or exchange program.
  • Check if your appliance has a buy back or exchange program. This is offered by the manufacturer, and it’s typically not available at all retailers. It may require you to send in your old appliance, so make sure you have proof of purchase if this is something that concerns you.
  • Consider renting an appliance instead of buying one new (especially if it’s just for a short period). Renting can be cheaper than buying new and it lets you try out different models before making a commitment on one model over another.
  • Wanting to buy some updated appliance units while not having enough cash? Trade-ins are your way to go. There are stores who would offer value to used goods and have this service arrangement to their valued customers in partnership with brands.
Try selling it yourself.
 If you’re not sure what to do with your old appliance, try selling it yourself. You can often find a buyer online or via classified ads in newspapers and on Craigslist. Check out Amazon and Ebay too — they usually have plenty of people looking for used appliances at good prices. Local appliance stores may also be willing to buy your old appliance if they know about its value as well as how much money you’d get from selling it (and whether or not they’d pay more than the store).
If none of these options work out for you, consider finding a repair shop that will buy your old machine—they’ll probably give you an estimate first before buying anything so that they know what kind of deal they’re getting themselves into!
Consider donating your old appliance and getting the tax benefit.
If you’re considering donating your appliance, here are some things to keep in mind:
  • You will have to pay extra for shipping. This can add up quickly if you need to ship several items at once and it will cost more than just sending it home yourself.
  • You may not get a tax deduction for the full value of the item (it depends on the type of donation). The IRS says that they only allow deductions up to $500 per item, but many charities give much more than that as part of their program.
  • If there’s any chance that someone could use this old appliance again someday (say, if it was donated by someone who moved away), then they should probably keep it around because they never know when they might need something like this again!

Selling and replacing home appliances isn’t as hard as it seems.
There are many ways to get rid of your old appliances. You can sell them, donate them, rent them out or give them away to someone who needs one.
If you’re looking at selling your appliance online and want to get the most money possible, there are several websites that offer free listings on their sites. These include Gazelle and OfferUp (which was recently purchased by Facebook).
If you don’t have time or energy enough to clean out your entire home before selling it off completely with an open house or yard sale—or even just a few rooms—you might want something more hands-on than just listing items in a virtual store front; this is where Craigslist comes in handy again!
There are many ways to get rid of your old appliances and make some money in the process. If you’re tired of trying to figure out what needs to be done but don’t have the time or energy, consider selling them through an online auction site like eBay or Craigslist. You’ll get a lot more than just a new appliance when you do this though because it’s also possible to sell your used ones for even more money! The next step is making sure that everything stays safe until after your auction date so that no one breaks into our house and steals any valuables from inside before we go shopping for replacements tomorrow morning 🙂
