Selling a bike, complete or part out?

I am getting a new bike in a few weeks. I will be using some stuff off of my old bike for the new one but over the coming week I have collected more and more stuff for the new one. It looks like I will be very close to having 2 bikes. I am a very out with the old in with the new type of person so I am still not thinking about keeping the old bike. Should I add to it and sell it complete or part it out?? It has Campy stuff on it....carbon everywhere but the seatpost....and Campy Eurus wheels....

It is a Giant TCR Race frame...the ONCE edition but I took the stickers off long ago...

Conventional wisdom says that you will always get more parting out than selling complete. However, if you don't want to deal with the hassle of shipping one brake to Florida, a stem to Maine, a FD to Arizona--you may just want to price the old bike to sell and get it out of your life.
