Sell Old Clothes
Clear out your wardrobe and make money when you sell your old and used clothes for instant cash payments
There has been a recent surge in organisations that allow you to sell old clothes to them for cash payments. Here we look at why they encourage this and how you can profit.
The items they request are usually babies, children's and adult clothing from belts, bras, shoes, trousers, t-shirts, dresses, jackets, handbags, etc. They must be clean and in good condition. Usually the companies will pay by weight, rather than item and up to £1 per kg is standard. They can be taken to special shops, or collected at your home by prior arrangement.
When you sell to them they usually recycle them by retailing them to overseas countries. But don't be fooled that they are doing this as a charitable deed - there is great profit for them in old UK clothing which is generally of high quality. This is especially true if you have sold them designer clothing or labels. Their mark-up can be quite high, at your expense. They may be able to offer you quick payment, but we would argue that you could make a better profit yourself with a little time and effort by trying to trade them at online auctions first. So for example you may get £5 from one of these companies for a leather jacket, but it could go for £20 at eBay for a few minutes of your time, and the buyer picks up the payment for the postage costs.

Selling Used Clothes
Sadly the rise of these organisations has seen a downturn in donations to local charity shops. Consider the relative who is clearing out the drawers and wardrobes of someone who has recently passed away. A few years ago they would have bagged the contents up and taken them to their local Oxfam or British Heart Foundation shop. Now many are choosing the option of selling used clothes for cash payments to get more finance to the estate or towards funeral costs. We'd love to encourage you to donate them to charity but the reality is that in these times money is tight.
Unfortunately there has also been a rise in thefts from the large metal containers where clothing could be donated near recycle points. There is big money to be made in selling clothing and sadly criminals have discovered this.
There is also a rise in rogue people who pretend to be collecting door to door for charities and will pop a large plastic bag through your letter box. They hope you will fill it up and leave it for them to collect a few days later. They cleverly write a description on the bag to say they are collecting clothing to distribute overseas. What they are neglecting to tell you is that they are doing just that, but for a profit, with none going to deserving causes. It is better to donate locally at trusted sources, many of whom can collect.
