Having to handle everything on your own can be overwhelming, but hiring a company can help you manage everything. In this guide, you will learn everything you need to make an educated decision on how to best execute your estate sale.
There are a few questions you’ll want to ask to make sure the company you hire has your best interests in mind. Estate sales are the perfect opportunity for consumers to get good deals on art and furniture, so don’t let it be at your expense. Check the companies’ references and see how you’ll be charged for services such as a commission fee.
If they own a store or purchase items for themselves, beware of a possible conflict of interests that could leave you with less than you deserve.
Estate sales aren’t just limited to merchandising and advertising. Equipment is needed to properly display items, such as tables and display cases to guard more valuable items. In addition to this, there are other services an estate sales company can provide, such as clearing out your home and removing junk, or helping in a hoarder situation where everything needs to go.
Before having an estate sale, you’ll want to remove any items you and your family wish to keep, and any important documents, so you don’t risk accidentally losing them. Ask yourself if you need to keep everything, or if you’re holding onto it so no one else can have it. Clear out any perishable items as those won’t be sold.
Letting go of your possessions isn’t easy. Whether it’s your home or a loved one’s, you don’t need to take care of everything alone. Hiring a professional company can help you have a professional, profitable sale while avoiding the complicated process of finding a new place for all your belongings.
