Selling house contents

Hello all,

I am selling the content of our house in Aveiro.

We are now nearing the completion of the sale so we need to empty the property of all its contents by the end of October. 

Does anyone know of a company that would buy 2nd hand furniture or alternatively hold an open-house sale/auction, if that sort of thing works in Portugal?

We also need to organise a skip or two as well, so if anyone has any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it. 

If anyone is interested in buying some 2nd hand furniture (most of which was imported from the UK) we'd be happy to arrange a quick sale.

I'm planning on being in Portugal from the 2nd week of October and have a two-week window to complete this task.

Any help and advice are greatly appreciated.

I'll add some photos shortly

Thanks in advance.

Mark

Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their input so far, it is greatly appreciated!!

I think the best way to describe the contents for sale is 'vintage' (not brown). Examples attached. if anyone is interested in anything I'm open to talking about

a quick and easy sale. 

But again, thanks for all the help!!

You could sell individual items or sets or advertise an estate sale on Facebook Marketplace. If you’re looking for someone to buy in bulk, a bit far for you but in the Algarve we have several businesses and charitable organizations that deal in purchase and resale of second hand furniture. There must be something similar up north. Also, I’m sure an auction house would also be interested.

Sorry I don't know anything specific to Aveiro, but there are some places that do house clearances (but I din't think they will offer much). For example there is Associação Novo Sentido in Alfeizerão (Silver Coast).

There are active (mainly expat) Facebook groups for buying and selling all kinds of items in most areas - I've known people sell things very quickly on those. I have also seen garage sales advertised in these groups and even went to one once!

@pamalcobaca Thanks Pam, I've joined a fair few groups so far, so fingers crossed.
