Moving & Estate Sales
What We Do
Call, text, or email us to schedule an appointment to preview your property. We'll discuss which items you want to keep and which items you want to sell. Keep in mind that we sell everything legal except prescription medicines, animals, and liquor.
Please don't donate, give away to neighbors (or hired help) or throw anything out because you will be surprised at what will sell! Popular and crucial estate sale items include clothing, shoes, tools, pots & pans, books, DVDs, fabric, hobby-related items, unopened & opened food, used or opened cosmetics and toiletries (spices, lipstick and deoderant). If you don't want it, please let us sell it! Focus on what you want to KEEP, not what you want to sell (that's OUR job).
The more unwanted "junk" you leave behind means that we can hold the sale longer, thereby keeping the prices higher. At most of our sales, we've sold the most expensive, high-end items at full-price or 25% off. By the time we get to the 3rd or 4th day (50% off day), we've usually sold the majority of your belongings and the best items that were for sale.
We will discuss compensation. We work on commission, except in rare circumstances where extra cleaning, trash removal, etc., is necessary. Our rate is usually 30-35%.
We have at least 2 full-time researchers/appraisers on staff.
We provide photography, advertisement, and proper "sprucing up" of what you're selling.
A few days before your sale, we email our 3000+ buyers, as well as broadcast on multiple sales sites, describing what they will find in your home to ensure you have the best chance for success. We like to have at least 100 noteworthy photographs of individual items in your home to draw a large amount of buyers to your sale. We also have 15 road signs to guide buyers to your sale.
Onsite Delivery Service (paid for by the buyers) is necessary to sell large furniture, and we have 2 employees who offer delivery for our buyers.
Proper disposal and cleaning after the sale.
Within 10 days of the end of the sale, we send you a cashier's check representing your proceeds from the sale, along with a list of donated items, and the Asking/Sold prices for your things. If you're local, we'll meet wherever it's convenient for you.
