Q:  WHY SHOULD  I HAVE A PROFESSIONALLY CONDUCTED ESTATE SALE RATHER THAN A GARAGE SALE OR FAMILY-RUN SALE?

 

A:  We know it's a difficult task to empty a household.  Not only is the work itself hard but you also have to factor in sentimentality and time among other difficult issues.  We have years of experience running successful sales so we're able to make our knowledge an asset to your sale.   

We come into your home and treat it and the contents in a respectful, professional way.  We clean what needs to be cleaned, professionally organize, stage, price and advertise your sale.


 

Q: DO I HAVE ENOUGH FOR YOU TO CONDUCT AN ESTATE SALE? I DON’T HAVE ANTIQUES OR LOTS OF EXPENSIVE THINGS.


A: Most homes don't.  And you might be surprised just how well even an average estate can and does sell when offered to the public in one of our orderly liquidation sales.


We sell furniture of all types, clothing, general residential contents, portable buildings, cars, tools, farm equipment . . . just about anything but the animals! 


Q: WHAT SHOULD I DO TO GET READY FOR A SALE?


A: Most importantly don't throw or give anything away.  Decide what won't be included in the sale, what you or family members will be keeping, and contact us.  


Q:  HOW IS YOUR COMPANY PAID FOR ITS SERVICES?


A:  We operate on a flat, all inclusive commission based on the gross sales.  There are NO out-of-pocket expenses to you. (There may, on rare occasion, be an exception to this rule should a commercial dumpster be necessary.) 


Q: DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE ESTATE ITSELF BEFORE TAKING A SALE?


A: Actually, yes, but only a few.

If you are the representative of an estate, we will need to have a photocopy of the necessary legal documents which authorize you to dispose of the contents.

The water, gas and electricity must be turned on and kept on throughout the sale process. (No need for a phone line, though, as we run credit card sales through a cellular phone app.)


Q: DO YOU CLEAN THE HOME AFTER A SALE?


A: We clean any debris associated with the sale and leave your home "broom clean".
