Our passion is what you’re trashin
Okay, so that wasn’t quite the perfect rhyme. Bear with us– we’re more about our outstanding customer experience than we are about our poetry skills.
RunMySale is here because of everyone’s dirty little secret– that we all have stuff we want to get rid of, but we don’t have the time or might be too lazy to actually do anything about it. It’s okay. It happens to the best of us.
Fortunately for you and the rest of this cluttered world, that’s where we come in. (Hi!)
RunMySale pairs capable superheroes (aka our affiliates) with customers that need to get rid of their extra clutter. Both have one thing in common: wanting to make some extra ca-ching. The affiliates make money by selling items; the customers get profits from their sold items. At the end of the day, the customer has a happier attic or basement or storage room or under-the-bed or wherever and a little more cash in their pocket, and the affiliate leaves with the sense of a job well done and the thrill of running their own business (and some cash in their pocket, too).
The “affiliates” are people who have been trained through our Garage Sale Business Kit (kit teaching people how to run a business of removing and/or selling people’s and/or businesses’ items). We teach our affiliates well in how to price and sell items and other skills they’ll need in order to turn your items into cash. Then, you pair up with them on the app in order to get your items sold. The affiliates host a sale with your items, either online or as an in-person garage sale. And the rest is sweet, sweet history. Some affiliates offer other services as well (i.e. item removal, moving, realtor, pressure washing, garage organizing, misc.).
And who are we?
We created the garage sale industry, so we know a thing or two (or three or four) about selling unwanted stuff. Our founder and CEO, Ben Weissenstein, has been helping people run their garage sales both online and offline since 2004 via his company, the first ever garage sale company – Grand Slam Garage Sales (GSGS). After running over 500 garage sales in the Houston area alone and receiving emails from people needing help throughout the world, Ben realized the massive need for this service.
RunMySale was born to help people and businesses make money (affiliates and customers) and get rid of unwanted items (customers).
