After a long, challenging journey, you’ve managed to get your home ready to add to the real estate market. Now, you’ll need to start thinking about your long-term plans, i.e. what you’ll do after your home sells.

For instance, what will you do with that massive tube TV that sits in your basement?

This TV has served you well for years. At the same time, it requires at least two people to pick it up, and you’ll need to move it up your stairs simply to get it out of your house. And if you decide to take your tube TV to your new residence, it may prove to be more trouble than it’s worth.

Fortunately, you have a lot of great options if you want to get rid of your TV before you relocate, including:

1. Sell It

Websites like Craigslist make it easy to take photos of your TV, provide information about it and offer it to the highest bidder. Plus, these sites usually are hyper-local, ensuring you can find local buyers who can pick up your TV, remove it from your home and pay you for the TV.

Of course, you’ll want to make your TV as attractive as possible if you decide to sell it online. As such, be sure to include high-resolution images of your TV, along with up-to-date information about it in any online advertisement.

Typically, you’ll want to make it as easy as possible for buyers to find your TV in a crowded marketplace, so you should try to incorporate information about your TV’s condition and age into your online advertisement as well.

2. Donate It to a Charitable Organization

Depending on the size and condition of your TV, you may be able to find a charitable organization near your home that will pick it up and take it away from your home.

Although you may not receive any money for your TV, you’ll know that your TV is going to a worthy organization. Also, there is a chance that you could receive a tax deduction for your charitable donation.

3. Offer It to Friends or Family Members

If you can’t find an interested buyer or a charitable organization to accept your TV, you may be able to give it to a friend or family member.

Your TV might be far from perfect, but if it is in working condition, a friend or family member may be able to use it in his or her home.

In addition, you may want to consider offering the TV to your neighbors before you relocate. By doing so, a nearby neighbor may be able to stop by your residence, pick up the TV and wish you well on your upcoming move.

Think about what you will do with your large tube TV before it’s too late.

The process of selling a home can go quickly, and you’ll want to prepare as much as possible for an upcoming move. Therefore, dedicating time and resources now to determine how you can get rid of your tube TV may help you streamline your efforts to pack up your belongings and move to a new address after your house sells.
