Make $500 a week selling used auto parts on eBay!
I'm going to tell you how I make $500 a week (usually much more) selling used auto parts on eBay. And, the great thing is that it's something anybody can do if they don't mind getting a little dirty or greasy.
What I'm going to explain to you doesn't require a fancy education or previous experience selling on eBay. You don't even need to know anything about cars or car parts, really, but if you do it's a big plus that can help you make even more money.
What got me started selling car parts? I had an old Mustang I always planned to restore. Then I got married. We had a kid, and the car sat there in the driveway gathering dust and complaints from the neighbors about it being an eyesore.
Finally, I had enough and decided I'd try to sell it on Craigslist, but I didn't get any takers. I called the scrapyard. They offered me 100 bucks. I was pretty sure a few of the parts alone were worth more than that.
Several days later, I got this crazy idea. What if I part it out on eBay? I was sure to get more than $100.
Over the next three weeks, I pulled every part I could off of that car - shift knobs, shifter arm, distributor, glove box door, hood emblem, and window crank handle. You name a part, I put it up for sale, and the funny thing is - the parts sold.
Someone paid me $33 for a window crank, $25 for the Mustang horse emblem, and $25 for the owner's manual.
It was nuts! People emailed to ask if I had this or that part left. When I got their emails, I'd head back out to the car with my wrench and screwdriver to yank it out for them. I'd come back in the house and list the part on eBay for the agreed upon price.
After three weeks, I'd sold close to $700 in parts from a car the junkyard offered a 100 bucks for.
All I could think was, "I need another car."
