Garage Sale Safety Tips

Summer always means garage sales, and there are a few things to keep in mind when having one:

  • Only two garage sales per year are allowed by City rule, and can’t exceed three days
  • No signs advertising the sale are allowed on utility poles or in medians.
  • If possible, have an assistant or two to help you with sales and cash handling, and to prevent theft of sale items or cash
  • Have plenty of change on hand – $1 bills, quarters, etc. – and keep a close eye on it
  • Have a calculator on hand
  • Specify that sale of all items is final and clarify that all sales are cash only
  • For safety, have the sale in your more-visible yard or driveway, not in the garage
  • Keep your pets indoors
  • Keep your house doors and windows closed and locked, and keep your garage locked
  • Before the sale, double-check all sale items to ensure no personal or financial information is left in them
  • Watch for trip hazards such as cords, boxes, bags, or other clutter, and don’t display breakable items where they can be easily knocked over
  • Keep anything that is not for sale out of sight
  • Any items not sold at the end of the day could be put in a box marked “FREE” to eliminate further packing and cleaning up
  • If you’ve put out signs, remember to take them down at the end of the sale and keep your neighborhood looking tidy

For additional questions on garage sales, contact the Planning Department’s Zoning & Residential Code Office at (505) 924-3850 ,or visit:
