How to Buy Used Luggage Tips
Preowned luggage, when bought right, can
prove to be near-new quality.
Sources include local newpaper ads, online and local auctions, and
pawn shops. But one of the best ways for purchasing used luggage is
at a neighborhood yard
sale. To really get a deal;
- Be style flexible. Perhaps the luggage isn't seen as visually stunning
or even in line with current styles. If you are ready for a little
mixing and matching, deals are more apt to come your way.
- Assess the luggage's condition. Some minor wear
here and there is expected. But remember you will be toting around
so if anything more than color blemishes exist, be reasonable sure
that it will come
Luggage is by nature a conversation piece. Get a little background
on it. It's likely to host untold memories. And know if it has been
setting in storage; if affirmative, ask where. Have hopes that it
in a clean environment and if not,
sniff the fabric. The invisible traces of pet and pests
leave a distinct, repelling odor, which infiltrates virtually all
fabrics. Make sure the luggage is clean, and disinfect it
This might also be the time to confirm privately
to yourself that the sellers are in deed, the rightful owners. Note
that pawn brokers are generally unlikely to be selling luggage with
a questionable history.
- Zipper/Latch operation. This is a possible weak point. Push and
pull both directions. Does the zipper mechanism tend to run smooth
or get snaggy? Lugagge zippers typically aren't replaceable.
- For multiple pieces. Its great when one fits inside the other.
Carry two at once and maximize storage
- Price of luggage. Make sure you are pocketing a fair amount.
By calling ahead of time, to get the brand name& style, you
can feel out and compare savings before any meeting in-person takes
