Garage Sale Safety Tips

If you are planning a garage sale at your house, here are some tips to remember.

  • Always have at least two people working.
  • Lock the doors into your home and do not let shoppers into your house to try on clothes or use the bathroom—post a sign stating a bathroom/changing area is not available.
  • Keep only a minimal amount of cash on site.
  • Keep the money on you at all times, not on a table. A fanny pack or money belt usually works well.
  • Have a phone close by to report any suspicious activity.
  • Do not accept checks.
  • Place expensive items near you.
  • Try to place all items outside of the garage and keep the garage door shut.
  • Be observant and wary of distractions.
  • Acknowledge all shoppers.
  • Do not advertise the sale as a “Moving Sale,” which implies the house may be vacant for extended periods.
  • Do not answer questions about alarm systems and daytime/nighttime occupancy.
  • Do not buy or sell used car seats. 

City Ordinance restricts the number of sales at a residence to two per year, each lasting no longer than five days. Always obtain permission from the owner before posting signs on another’s property.
