Follow the checklist below to keep you and your community safe this Garage Sale Trail. Click on the links below to see the latest Covid-19 guidelines where you are:
Register your garage sale on our website
To receive a Covid-safe garage sale toolkit featuring Covid-safe checklists, social distancing markers and more.
Don't stand so close to me
Make like Sting and keep your distance on sale day. Keep a table between you and your shoppers and ensure there is space for shoppers to stay at least 1.5 metres from each other. Use the distance markers and signage provided when you register to remind people to stay physically distant.
Keep it clean
Surely you’ve got a PHD level of experience in handwashing by now? Put your new skills to good use on the Trail this year. Wash your hands regularly throughout the day and provide sanitiser for shoppers to use. Last but certainly not least be sure to clean and disinfect all the items you’re selling before sale day.
Stick to government guidelines on the maximum number of shoppers
Every State and Territory has slightly different rules on the maximum number of people allowed at social gatherings at any one time. This will vary depending on whether your sale is indoors or out. Use the links above to access the latest guidelines where you are.
Don’t take part if you’re feeling sick
Postpone your sale or host a virtual garage sale from your home if you’re feeling sick, have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 or have just returned from overseas.
Wear a mask
There are heaps of benefits to wearing a mask beyond the obvious one of saving lives. For one, you can skip wearing makeup or having a shave on Garage Sale Trail day! There are heaps of super stylish eco-friendly versions out there too.
Consider taking contactless card payments
There are lots of ways you can take card payments these days so consider these options and go cashless at your garage sale. It might just also encourage people to spend a little more.
Have shoppers sign in before entering your sale
Ask shoppers to leave their name and number on the contact tracing form provided in your dashboard. This is especially important for indoor garage sales. After your sale, take a photo of the list as you'll need to keep it for at least 2 months.
