How much is your junk worth. Depending on the item, you might be able to barter it away at the Petaluma Trading Post. The good thing about this trading post is that it is a virtual exchange. Everything happens across a Facebook page. That works if you’re trading a big item you want to get rid of. Most of the posts end with a “WTF?” Here that stands for “will trade for?” In other words, you could put up a microwave and trade it for a Blu-Ray player. It’s not just stuff that people are bartering but also services like baking, photography and landscaping. This is a kind of “back-to-basics” commerce sight. There is never any money exchanged and you have to arrange to make the trade. That’s when it can get a little dicey.
Suppose you wanted to finally get rid of that sofa you’ve been keeping in storage? You can put it up to barter for a bike or kayak. But now you have to make sure the person who is trading with you will be able to literally pick up the couch and cart it off. This kind of complication can bring the best barter to a screeching halt. What happens then is that you’re still stuck with your junk. It’s like having a yard sale where you don’t end up selling everything. It all has to be hauled back into the garage. If you want to barter like this, it might be best to stick with the small stuff. For some serious bulk trash pickup, Junk King Sonoma is the only way to go.
