Electric hookup for dryer

So i have a spare 125/240 3 prong dryer i don't need (I have a gas one)- I want to sell it but need to confirm it works. I have to sell the house----- Without getting crazy- I just want to plug it in to correct outlet- My electrical box is in garage- Would easiest way to be buy a breaker and plug (outlet)- and just wire it right in garage to test? i will take it out after that- Just looking for suggestions

That seems like a reasonable approach. If you already have an existing 30A double pole breaker (for an air conditioner or water heater for example) you could use that one instead of buying one just for the test.
