What do we do exactly? We will start with a walk through and exchange information and protocol. We will then go in and prepare the home, light cleaning, laundering and set up for the sale. We price everything from large items like antiques, furniture, china, jewelry, tools, decor, cars, clothes, lawn ornaments to small items such as paperclips. We hold the sale Friday-Sunday. The advertising for the sale will begin a week prior to and during the sale. We advertise online and in local papers to the surrounding areas. When the sale is completely over we take care of everything that is left. Nothing will be left in the home unless otherwise arranged.
Here are some common questions that are asked.
How much do you charge?
We charge 35% of the total money generated from the estate sale. Payment and fees are deducted from the total at the end of the sale. There is no cost up front. There will be extra charges if a lot of cleaning is needed, hoarding situations or removal of any hazardous waste (ie..Chemicals ect...).
How long does it take?
It can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks to prepare, depending on the estate size.
What do we do with anything left that doesn't sell?
Either the clients can take it themselves or we donate it to one of the local charities here in town. The client will choose which charity.
