How Kenyans Abroad Are Selling Kenyan Belongings Remotely with Ease

Perhaps you got an opportunity to go abroad and you didn’t have time to plan and declutter your belongings. Maybe you are trying to use friends or family members to sell them on your behalf but you have trust issues and the process might take longer. Yes, selling your Kenyan belongings while you are abroad is not a walk in the park.

Fortunately, Corido Marketplace has transformed this space and you can now sell your Kenyan belongings to the right buyer as though you are here in Kenya! Do you want to know how?

This article gives you a simple and practical guide to selling Kenyan belongings remotely while abroad with ease. Let’s get started. 

Selling from Afar: The Struggles of Remote Household Sales

Selling Kenyan belongings remotely  is not an easy undertaking. If you are not careful, you might easily give up, get conned, or sell them way below their value. This is possible because remote household sales have inherent challenges, including:

  • Distance and Communication Issues

Distance and communication are vital ingredients in the success of any sales. The closer you are and the faster and more efficient communication, the easier the sales. If you are abroad, time differences and network constraints make it difficult to communicate effectively. This consequently makes coordination with your parties in Kenya less effective.

  • Potential for Misinterpretation

Selling from afar gives you an easier platform for third parties to deliberately or unknowingly misinterpret the condition or value of your household items. Remember, you are dealing with parties that also have their own interests. They can be easily tempted to be insincere in describing the quality, state, value, and condition of your goods to suit their interests. 

  • Security Risks

When you are arranging for an inspection of your household items and transportation, you can easily lose valuable items in your house. Someone can identify and pick up valuable items alongside your household goods because they know you are not around. Also, your representatives can liaise and steal your items. You may realize this when it is too late and only count losses. 

How Remote Selling is Aiding Kenyans Abroad to Sell Their Belongings

Fortunately, the concept of remote selling has come to the rescue and you can now sell your household items as though you are doing it physically. With remote selling, you use an online selling platform to find a suitable buyer for your goods. This makes it extremely easier if you are in the diaspora because you can sell your goods without the need to come back and do it physically.

Additionally, you don’t need a third party because you can talk directly and close business with the buyer.  While this concept is fast, convenient, and saves time, you need the right remote selling platform. Otherwise, you can sell your items on a fake site or get defrauded and lose your precious household items.

The High Cost of Storage: A Hidden Drain

One big mistake people make when they are going abroad is to store their goods in a storage facility. This makes sense when you need better security and space in your house for other occupants. However, the high cost of storage can drain your finances and make the whole idea economically unwise. 

Yes, before deciding to store your belongings in a storage facility, keep in mind the high cost of storage. Initially, the storage cost may look insignificant, but with time, the cumulative cost drains your finances and ignites personal regrets. 

Even if you own the storage facility, these items might pile up and significantly depreciate in value. Additionally, you could be keeping many items, and you are not sure whether you really need them or can put them to good use. Therefore, storage options require proper planning and foresight.
