In doing a spring cleaning you’ll probably come across things that you no longer have any use for and that you’ll set aside for the junk removal bin, but give pause before you do, because there are some things you might want to hang on to. Here are some things to keep a little bit longer. They could make you some cash in the long run.
- VHS Tapes
Yes, those old VHS tapes may be worth something to someone. There are collectors of VHS tapes around who will pay to add to their collections. Classic and cult films are especially sought after. So, before you go tossing them, put them on kijiji or eBay and see what kind of response you get.
- Video Games
Games that stem from the old gaming consoles from the 80s like Atari or the original Nintendo are also collector’s items. You actually might want to go through your junk removal bin to see if you have any lurking anywhere. Their value seems to increase every year.
- Comic Books
Most everyone knows not to throw out comic books, just in case there’s one in the bunch that’s worth a load of cash. Some hard-to-come-by vintage issues are worth hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars.
- Kids’ Toys
Vintage toys especially should be kept in a safe place. Even toys from the 80s and 90s can be worth something today. For instance, an original “Furby” from 1998 recently sold for $700 at auction. So, better make sure about the price tag attached to old toys before you chuck them into the junk removal bin.
- Old Remote Control Cars
Again, some of these can be worth a lot of money to collectors. Be sure to do some online research so you can find out their value before getting rid of them. Even if you don’t find your model is worth a bundle, try putting it up for sale online, you never know what you might get for it.
- Vintage Board Games and Card Sets
That first edition Monopoly game needs to be revered because it’s worth a lot of cash. Classic games like Mousetrap and Hungry, Hungry Hippo also make the list of sought-after vintage games. You don’t want to throw away things that could be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars.
On the other hand, you probably do have loads of things you do need to purge from your home, and this is where renting a junk removal bin would come in handy. There are sizes of bins to suit every situation. Give Gorilla Bins a call and they’ll help you out.
