So after around 3 weeks of sorting, I have sorted my Lego collection by part type and colour, put everything into ziplock bags, and gathered all the instructions. Everything looks ready to be sold, but I need advice on how to sell it.
From what I know, all instructions are complete although a few of the books have had the staples become loose, and I threw out the instructions for some very tiny Lego sets that were given at the Lego store for spending a certain amount. About 95% of the parts are lightly used or in mint condition, the rest are fairly used, and only a handful of older parts have heavy wear. As for the parts, I'm sure that anything major isn't missing or broken except for 2 parts, a broken yellow 1/2 hinge plate, and a yellow technic angled beam with a factory defect but it can still be used easily. Also the suitcase hinges have snapped, but they still stick together separately. The collection is from a smoke free and pet free home.
Summary of collection:
-Somewhere between 100-150 pounds in weight
-Baseplates: 32x32 Green (x7), 32x32 Blue (x2), 32x32 Sand/Beige (x1), 48x48 Light-gray (x1), 32x16 Dark-gray (x1)
-Instructions for all major sets complete
-Several hundred dollars worth of PaB from the Lego store

Some important questions:What would be the approximate value of all this? Cause I'm thinking somewhere around $2000 but it might even be $3000 though I'm not sure (in Canadian dollars).
Where would be the best place to sell it? I'm thinking Kijiji but it might attract beggars and lowballers so maybe there are better places to sell. (I don't want to risk shipping either)
What is the best way to get payment? I'm not quite old enough to make a paypal account.
Feel free to leave some feedback. Thanks a lot!
