You could consider starting a liquidation business by opening a discount store online by creating a website and/ or brick n’ mortar such as a 99 cent store, dollar tree store, a flea market, yard sale, create a low-cost discount store, sell on Craig’s list, through an auction, through eBay etc..
Pick an area to specialize in that people are buying or is interesting to you. As with some businesses you might be dealing with repeat customers and suppliers continuously so honesty is a must. Before buying merchandise, bartering or trading for merchandise, do some research and see what is selling.
In the planning stages of your business & prior to opening your business, be sure that you fully understand the competition and where your new business will fit in. Understand exactly what you’ll be selling. Starting this type of business depends on your ability to find and close that first deal.
Look into contacting freight and storage companies, overseas companies, contact local banks about bankruptcies for merchandise. Find individuals and/ or businesses that want to give to you or sell you merchandise or buy the surplus stock from you. Seek out companies with surplus merchandise, speak with other liquidators & see if they are willing to give you a few suggestions. Act as a broker & find freight delivery companies that will bring merchandise to you or your buyer.
