HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I CALL?

We would like you to call as soon as you believe you might need our services. We often have sales booked for several weeks in advance. You will be given you a firm date when you sign the estate sale contract.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

There is no up-front or out-of-pocket expense to you.   Our fee is based upon a percentage of the total sales and is deducted from the proceeds at the end of the sale.

WHEN DO WE GET PAID?

Proceeds are paid within ten working business days.

WHAT SHOULD WE GET RID OFF?

Don’t throw away anything until we have met and visually inspected the contents with you. There may be items that have value that you consider trash. You’ve heard the old adage “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

 

The items we ask that you must remove are any items not included in the estate sale, personal items and papers and/or trash.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO “SET UP” AN ESTATE SALE?

The time it takes depends on the volume and condition of items for sale.

HOW MANY DAYS WILL THE ESTATE SALE LAST?

The time it takes depends on the volume and condition of items for sale.

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN SETTING UP THE ESTATE SALE?

First, we set up our display tables strategically throughout the house. We stage contents and furniture as needed.

We then go through the house emptying drawers, boxes, and cabinets, cleaning items as necessary. Our experts separate the sellable items from the non-sellable and organize them in an appealing manner.   We then affix price tags to the belongings.

HOW MANY DAYS WILL THE ESTATE SALE LAST?

Typically a public estate sale last two to three days, based on volume.

HOW DO WE START THE ESTATE SALE PROCESS?

After you call us, we will discuss the type of sale you need and what kind of contents you have. Photographs sent in advance are always helpful. We will then set up an appointment to come out and discuss your specific needs.

 

Once we are on site we can assess and determine the feasibility of a sale. If there is not enough volume or value a traditional estate sale may not be the way to proceed. We offer other solutions such as consignment, auction, donation, buy out, clean out, etc.

IS THERE A FEE FOR THE ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION?

There is no charge for our initial assessment; however, we are unable to provide verbal appraisals. Appraisals are based on a fee for service. Please view the appraisal tab for more information.

WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT DURING THE SALE?

We accept Cash and Credit Cards.

WHEN DO I SIGN THE CONTRACT?

A lot of our customers sign the contract after the initial assessment. It’s important for you to know we cannot start the set up process or confirm a sale date until the contract is signed.
