Providing First Class Car Boot Sales

Buyers

 

Some useful advice for Buyers at a car boot sale:

  • Always be polite. A smile, a please and a thank-you may result in a price reduction.
  • Arrive early. Just as it opens if you can drag yourself out of bed on your day off!
  • Take a suitable bag for your purchases. Stall holders will not be able to provide a trustworthy bag – you don’t want one breaking and an item being damaged.
  • Have plenty of change handy.
  • Take a stroll around the site and check out all of the stalls. You don’t want to miss out on that bargain!
  • Don’t be afraid to haggle but always in a polite manner. It’s all part of the fun.
  • You may receive a discount for bulk purchases from the same seller. It’s always worth asking.
  • Never ignore a box of items. Sellers tend to group less desirable items together, but sometimes a real bargain can be hidden away.
  • Walk around twice – sellers can take more out of their cars after they have cleared some space – you don’t want to miss anything.
