You may ask yourself, who are you to tell me how to make money by selling other people’s items? We are Grand Slam Garage Sales. We were founded by Ben Weissenstein in 2004. The business was founded after Ben’s parent’s got divorced, his mom had a garage sale and saw the need for help.
We got our second job while at our first job. The need became clear and the journey began. We have been thankful to have been featured in lots of press including Dr. Phil, Entrepreneur Magazine, PBS, ABC 13, Houston Chronicle, Fox 26 and many more.
Over the years we’ve had ups and downs and learned a lot as we’ve constantly evolved. We wish we knew what we knew today when we first started in 2004.
Throughout the years we have been contacted by over a thousand people from across the world looking for help selling their items (that doesn’t include the thousands of people who have contacted us where we’re based – Houston, Texas). Keep in mind, we have never advertised our services anywhere besides Houston and we barely even advertise in Houston.
The need for help selling and removing items is clearly a massive need not only throughout the United States but across the world.
We’ve decided to expand to the masses by selling kits teaching people how to make money by selling items for others, just like we do. We used to do this by running traditional (driveway) garage sales for people. Now, we do this by selling items for people and businesses online.
