HIRING AN ESTATE SALE COMPANY

Is my collection right for an estate sale?

First and foremost, it is essential that you and your loved ones are clear on what you want to keep and what would be included in an estate sale. Then call us and set an appointment. Consultations are complimentary. A consultation lasts about an hour, during which we tour your home, discuss your collection and talk about how we would handle a sale in your home.

 

How do you price my items?

Careful examination of results from our past sales and various online auction results, our pricing is careful, thorough and evidence-based. We work with a team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic vintage collectors. 

 

I am putting my home on the market. At what point should I have an estate sale?

We work with clients in any way they need us. Do you need us to clear out everything so your Realtor can stage it? We can handle that. Is your home in escrow and you want us to clear it out before closing? We handle it. Are you still living in the home? We will work with you. 

 

What if I have a house that needs to be totally cleared but I can’t be there?

We are a full-service estate sales company. Just hand us the keys and it will be handled. We will deliver it empty in a matter of weeks.

 

What do you do with the items that don’t sell?

That is completely up to you. You may keep whatever is left at the end of the sale or we can offer liquidation services.

 

Can you move my whole collection to another location to have the sale? 

Our sales are in-home only. We are experts at logistics and crowd control and we are sticklers for protecting your home during the estate sale process.

There are items that I want to keep. 

We completely expect that! If there are items in the home that you want to keep, make sure to point them out at our initial consultation. Afterwards, we like to have those items removed for the home prior to the sale, or at least clearly marked "NOT FOR SALE".

Should I start cleaning?

Remember the old saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure"? That is still true! We are experts at discerning what is and is not trash. Let us handle the dirty work.
