Conclusion

  • First pick-up what YOU WANT, then pick-up what you can SELL...
  • Know what is currently selling...
  • "Strip" off parts, if the whole object is not feasible to use. Take knobs, wheels, material, parts that can be used in your work area to rebuild other objects...
  • "Short" the object. Remove a part such as a drawer or cushion and "Stash" it somewhere until you can return and pick-up the rest of the object. However, don't do this if you don't plan on returning!
  • "Short" the object and sell it right there by finding a buyer (from your list) and telling him where it is for a price! This is called "Short Selling"...
  • Watch the neighborhood as you Junk and notice moving-vans or trucks or people moving things in and out. Then return later (time it) to retrieve something you saw! You have to "Trap" the object! Because believe me, if it's any good it won't last long out there on the street...

There's no end in sight! I have been doing this for over 35 years and I'm still going STRONG... and it seems there are more and more people doing it every year. True... a lot does depend on YOU and on the Current Economy and Social Conditions... It's beneficial if done within the Rules AND Regulations and it's very rewarding... you could say it's like Christmas Everyday for the Junker! Ha! Ha! Ha!

GOOD LUCK ... PS: Be sure to see the Repair Techniques at the Repair Studio and visit the Archived Photo Gallery at the Photo Gallery and be sure to try the Junking Quiz
