How to Sell Tanning Beds


The process of selling a tanning bed is not as simple as selling a television or even a car. The target market for tanning beds is a very specific demographic, and locating a buyer can be very tricky. You should also be very familiar with the details of your bed, as many buyers will have veritably no idea what type of product they are interested in.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer with Internet access
  • Digital camera
  • Identify the size, type, model and other important details of any bed you intend to sell. Establish a price range based on the bed's original price against its age and condition. The guidelines for price are up to you, but remember that aiming too high can inhibit your ability to sell.

  • Take several pictures from varying angles and perspectives of the bed. Upload them onto the computer, and choose a few favorites. Print off several copies, and include a typed description with the photo to make flyers. Include your phone number and/or e-mail address as well.

  • Post the flyers at several tanning facilities, beauty salons and nails salons. Make sure to get the proprietors' permission.

  • Visit and follow the instructions to create an account, if you do not already have one. Craigslist is an efficient way to locate serious buyers in a very short amount of time for free. Post a few of the best pictures, and add a very brief, simple description of your bed. Repost your ad every one to two days, and adjust the price if no interest is generated.

  • Utilize a third party to assist in selling if the free methods are not working. A newspaper ad is fine, but make use of the sites listed below to assist in selling. For a fee, many Web sites can sell your bed in a very short amount of time, and some will even buy it directly from you immediately. The links for and are listed below.
