Garage sale guidelines
Did a little new year cleaning and purging create piles of things to get rid of? If you’re thinking about raising the garage door and having a sale, check out what you need to do before putting out your sign.
- Each household in Oklahoma City can have two garage sales a year with the proper permit. A single permit is good for three consecutive days and the sale must be held between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the address listed on the permit.
- Garage sale signs and other service signs are not allowed on utility poles, traffic sign poles, medians or any public right-of-way. Signs can be placed in front of the house but can’t be larger than 12 square feet.
- Personal property can be sold, but not motor vehicles. In addition, no new merchandise or consignment items.
- The maximum fine for conducting a sale without a license is $200 plus costs.
Permits can be purchased online using a credit card or you can call the License Division at (405) 297-2606 for a paperless permit.
