Frequently Asked Questions...
Q) What do I need to know?
Don’t throw anything away. You will be surprised what sells.
Determine what you want to keep from your estate for yourself and for your family prior to the initial consultation.
Please remove any personal items.
Please keep all utilities on except telephone.
Contact us via phone or email to arrange a time for our free consultation. This is when we determine what your needs and wishes are and set up the guidelines for the sale.
Q) How long does it take to conduct a sale?
Sorting and setting up can usually be done in 1-2 weeks or less, depending upon the size of the estate. The actual sale takes two to four days; however, we are willing to work under any circumstances and will do all we can to work within your time limits. Just ask if you have any concerns.
Q) Do I need to be present before and during the sale?
No, we ask that you are not present during the sale. Your absence allows us to conduct the sale more quickly and professionally.
Q) Should I go through and clean out items before your team arrives?
No. Many people throw away what they consider to be trash or junk not knowing its real value. Let us decide what is trash.
Q) How much will your service cost me?
Commission from your sales of 30% will be taken. No hidden cost. We cover the cost for advertising, moving, pricing, etc. You will be provided a list of items that sold and a payout within 5-7 days from the last date of the sale.
