Our company also promotes online sales with great success. Included are set-up, picturing, and measuring of the merchandise, as well as research and pricing. We bring in all necessary props for preparation such as boxes, tagging, and equipment to photograph items. We will come to your home to tag and photograph everything that will be available for sale. We create unique advertising through social media via photographs and videos as well as an online catalog of items for your estate sale. This catalog is listed online, customers pay for their items online, and are given a time slot in which to pick up their items. We also provide no parking signs and flags if required by your community to make this pick-up process run smoothly.
We draw the attendees from our private list of clients, dealers, and the public via e-mail, personal phone calls, social media, and advertisements.
Other optional services that may incur a separate charge when conducting an online estate sale:
Dumpster rentals may be necessary if there is an excess of items that need to be removed from the home before the sale (i.e. hoarding, water damage, mold, etc.)
Additional security services.
Pack-out services are provided if there are items left over that you would like to donate. Most charities ask that items be placed into a garage or other easily accessible area which is additional labor.
Our normal rate for this service is $850 minimum with a 33.3% commission after the minimum equivalent is met. This means if we reach over an approximate total of $2550 in sales, you are no longer charged the minimum and will only be charged 33.3% of the sale revenue. The minimum and commission rates may change depending on the estate. After-sale accounting is provided within ten to fourteen days of sale completion. A check will be issued to the estate with the accounting information given.
Your estate must have WiFi internet in order to qualify for this service.
Typically, we do not provide clean-out or buy out services for online estate sales we conduct as we feel this is a conflict of interest, but can assist you in connecting with a third-party company to handle such services if necessary.
