If your Bank Holiday plans involve staying in and having a good and thorough clear out, it may be a chance to make some extra cash. Your junk really could be someone else’s treasure – and knowing what to sell and how to sell it could see you topping up your bank account sooner than you’d think. But what is worth selling, and how can you make money fast?
He added that anything from coins to jewellery and watches are just some of the items his team are looking for.
The expert has revealed some of the buying and selling trends – and how you could make thousands of pounds by clearing out some of the following must-haves.
If your impressive wardrobe of watches has been collecting dust in recent months, it may be time to trade them in.
Martin Lewis’ golden rule is to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year – and selling your collection could be very lucrative.
James commented that the most popular watches he sees for valuation range from Rolex, Hublot, Audemars Piguet, Cartier and Patek Philippe, with prices ranging from £3,000 to a massive £200,000.
While some of your jewellery may have sentimental value, it could be worth looking at its monetary value if you’re looking to make some extra cash this month.
Your jewellery box could be home to items worth thousands of pounds according to James, who said he’s seen diamond rings valued for between £500 to £50,000.
The expert has also valued Cartier Love Bangles at £4,000, while one person loaned against sapphire and diamond earrings at £35,000.
What’s more, James believes now is the best time to sell any gold you have laying around that you no longer use.
“My advice is, if you have old gold, now is the time to sell. Gold is holding its value well – it always does in uncertain times.”
