Some systems focus on decluttering for specific items, which offer a faster way of scaling down. Decluttr specializes in media like CDs, DVDs, games, and books. Users can enter a barcode number, work out the total value of their items and request a box to ship their stuff for sale. Similar to Sortly, the company also offers a smartphone app to scan the barcodes. It’s ideal for sellers with a mounting pile of old movies ready for the yard sale.
This is a focus other companies have taken up for themselves. Apple’s smartphone trade-up service offers up to $315 toward a new iPhone, while Samsung offers up to $300 off a Galaxy S9 or Note8 with relevant trade-in. Third parties like Gazelle and MyPhonesUnlimited are also offering instant quotes on a variety of devices. They all follow the Decluttr route, matching the product to a database of price quotes to simplify the process.
The future is looking a lot less cluttered.
