This is why you need Music Magpie, where you can put all your old things up for sale in one shot. After a valuation of your belongings, you can even put them all in one box to send off. This article aims to show you how you can make the most of Music Magpie.
Step one: sort through all your stuff!
This is actually the hardest step. Having to make the decision to part ways with your belongings can be heartbreaking. Old CDs are a good example; you may never listen to them anymore, but they may still have sentimental value. But they may also be taking up way too much space, so they’ve got to go. Copy your albums onto your computer if you really want the music. Then stack them in the box and save space.
Step two: get a valuation
On the Music Magpie website, you’ll find a Valuation Engine. Here, you enter the details of the items you’re trying to get rid of. For instance, if you’re broke and your mind has been screaming, ‘sell my Xbox 360!’ for months, simply enter the details of your model and you’ll receive an estimate for your console. The same applies to whatever you’re trying to sell - consoles, albums, DVDs or iPads.
Step three: send your items
Firstly, if you’re sending off more than 25 items, you can send it all free! The same applies if you’re sending tech goods, or any electronic item that’s more than 10 kilos. Music Magpie’s courier service will pick your old stuff up free of charge. All of your things will be totally insured, too. On the other hand, if you have less than 25 items, don’t worry - it’s still free! You can leave your items at one of the many Music Magpie drop-off centres. These are usually open every day, till late.
Step four: get paid!
Finally, it’s time to receive some compensation for making the tough decision to part ways with your old tech, games and CDs. It’s a hard thing to do, but after you’ve given in to reason, packed them up and sent them off, the rewards arrive.
Music Magpie can pay you in three different ways (after quality assessment has been performed on your items): by bank transfer, cheque or e-Voucher.
If you’re not that hard up for cash though, you can always defer payment and donate to charity. The next time your brain drones, ‘Sell iPad!’, you know what to do!
