A few tips for first-time Sellers
Loading your vehicle
- Check the local weather forecast on the day, and pack accordingly.
- Make sure you load your vehicle safely. Don't overload, or obstruct visibility.
- Remember to put your table(s) in last - you will need them first when arriving.
- Make sure your table(s) are strong enough to do the job, and won't buckle under the weight!
Arriving at the school
- Try to arrive early enough to select a good pitch and set up your table.
- Keep valuable items on sale near to you and in sight at all times.
- Keep your takings and other valuables on your person.
- Remember to keep your car doors locked where possible.
- Avoid the risk of a flat battery by turning off your radio and interior lights.
- Please have your pitch money ready to pay on arrival.
- Bring a small float in case you need to give change.
- Price your items clearly, but be prepared to haggle a little. That's what car boots are all about!
Car Boot Sales are a brilliant way of making a little money out of unwanted items. They are also a fun social event, especially for regular sellers. Bring your family and friends and make a day out of it!
