Okay, so why advertise with and not elsewhere?

Good question, Im glad you asked!

Often I am aksed by people over the phone, "How many people will see my ad, if I advertise with you?" or, "Why should I advertise with you, and not just put an ad in the local paper..?"

These are fair questions, and it only makes sense to ask them, to ensure you're getting value for money. As these questions appear to be asked often, I thought I would put together this article to answer those questions and a few more, that will hopefully highlight the benefits of advertising with

Ok, so in no particular order, here they are :

1. EXPOSURE is Australia’s biggest garage sale website attracting over 1,500 unique visitors per day. During busy periods we have seen this figure jump to 90,000 visitors per month! What does this mean? This means that you can be assured that your ad will be viewed by literally thousands of people, giving you the best possible exposure online. Not only that, but weekly our scripts send notifications to people monitoring various suburbs for upcoming garage sales, which means, even more people will know about your day, even if they dont visit the website!


I recall speaking with a lady just recently, who said that she had placed her garage sale advertisement in two local papers, costing her $45 each. That’s a total of $90! Just for two small print ads! And guess what? One of her ads wasn't even printed! Advertising fees on range from just ten bucks to fifteen, for ads with up to ten photos. In addition to this, we sell value for money, weather proof corflute garage sale signs for just $7.95 each. How does a featured ad with 10 photos and 2 signs delivered to your door for $24 sound? Pretty damn good I think!


I pride myself in providing a high level of fast, reliable and friendly customer support here at Not only can you call me directly for help, but I ensure that I answer each and every email, no matter what the question. I really think people appreciate this, because it certainly helps to know that there is someone at the other end who can assist and help out, and not just a computer! Last but not least --- I appreciate your business and will continue working to make the best!


I receive emails every day from people telling me how happy they were with the results they had, and the money they made with their garage sale. Many of these people are first timers that have never had a garage sale before! Its usually always a "...thanks for such great advice, tips and hints, we made over $1,000 on our first attempt!..." I love getting these emails! You can read many of their emails and reviews here.


Have you ever gone to place an ad in the local newspaper and been put on hold on the phone for 20 minutes? I mean, all you want to do is place your ad and get on with your day right? Worst still, you miss the midweek deadline and they tell you its too late, and that you cant advertise at all! The best thing about advertising your garage sale with us, is that it takes less than 5 minutes. Its just a matter of completing 3 easy steps, and your done! And of course, if you’re rushed for time, you can come back later and change your ad if you need to! There is no time limit, there is no deadline. You can place your ad Friday night to be published live the very next day.


In comparison to printed advertising, which once printed on paper its all over, provides a comprehensive members area which allows you to log in, update your ad, and change any other details that you may want to – any time you want. The best thing about this, is that you have complete control over what information you publish, or exactly how much. You can always cancel your ad too if unforseen circumstances arise. This is absolutely essential to prevent people banging on your door if your day is cancelled. 


By hiding your address details, you can be certain that your privacy is protected and that you won't have people banging on your door, days before your sale.


With over 73 articles, and 209 reviews from other people that have held garage sales, along with numerous tips and hints, free flyers, signs and checklists included on our website, you simply cannot go wrong! The informative resources on are a great way of knowing what mistakes to avoid and how best to make your day as profitable as ever!


Newspaper readership is on the decline – Its common knowledge that more and more people are turning to the internet for information rather than on print media. And why wouldn’t you? From the comfort of your own home, you can be alerted via email as to when and where garage sales are coming up in your neighbourhood.

10. TRUST has been in operation since 2004, with improvements and new features being added constantly. As an all Australian business, being run locally from Brisbane, you know that you will be working with someone you can trust. One who understands you and will support you as a customer.
