In addition, we email all of our customers to let them know we will be having an upcoming sale. We advertise in over 80 Facebook groups, Craigslist, Nextdoor, Estatesales.net, our customers emails.
High Valued Items
We place all smaller high priced items up front with the cashier in locked glass cases, as well as all the jewelry. This significantly reduces theft. The items in the cases they’d like to purchase will be placed in a bag with their name on it.
During the sale we accept payments of CASH or Square Chip Reader. We find that accepting card payments increases sales. People may not carry that much cash on them, but they will always have a card payment.
We begin at the estate to see what see what services will best fit your needs. Then we will go over the items your wanting to sell and your schedule and once we have come to your end goal we will discuss the commission and sign the contract.
We will go through the home and determine the value of all the items and place a price tag on it. Therefore, our professional knowledge and expertise will promise you get your best price! Why You May Need An Appraisal
Pricing is based off the today’s market value, as the sale continues daily we will drop prices from 25% off to 50% off. In doing so, we ensure you are not left with a lot of items to remove.
We place signs on streets near the sale to direct people and it also brings people in off the street. This really brings in a lot of people heading to work or simply running errands.
In conclusion, our final job is to provide an accounting of the sale proceeds. Within a week following the sale the client will receive a printed statement of the gross sales and commission paid to Clearly Quick Estate Services LLC and final payout.
We strictly have one entrance and one exit in the room where the cashier is. In other words, this way we are able to see anyone coming and going. We also have a camera security system we can use. The cameras are a deterrence for those who may think of stealing.
Sales typically can take anywhere from 2 to 14 days to setup, depending on the home. Homes that are not as cluttered and more organized will be a shorter set up. Also, homes that are hoarded or simply have a mass amount of items will take a little longer to set up. Additionally, sale days can be 2 to 4 day sales.
