Used goods are products that are resold after being used. This is a basic type of reuse that generally reduces waste and the consumption of resources. Used goods represents a large industry that is often consumer-to-consumer. It is also common for used goods to be a business model that can involve import-export. For example, the export of used cars from Japan to developing countries is a common trade due to required scheduled maintenance checks in Japan that encourage consumers there to get a new car every three years. The following are common types of used goods.
Bags & Purses
Collectibles (e.g. coins)
Computers & Peripherals
Games & Puzzles
Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning
Media (e.g. vinyl music)
