Whenever possible, we conduct on-site public estate sales. Included is set-up, pricing of the merchandise, research necessary to do so, crew members to staff your sale and after sale accounting. We bring in all necessary props for preparation such as tables, lighting, display cases, and clothing racks. Pricing stickers, cards, and pricing menus are included in this service as well as other signage as needed. We also provide no parking signs and flags if required by your community. During the sale we provide shopping bags and wrapping material for the attendees. We also accept credit card, check & contactless payments to make shopping convenient.
We draw the attendees from our private list of clients, dealers, and the public via e-mailing, personal phone calls, social media and advertisements. We can advertise on various websites as well as through social media.
Other optional services that may incur a separate charge when conducting a public estate sale:
Dumpster rentals may be necessary if there are an excess of items that need to be removed from the home prior to 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 $2000 minimum with a 30% commission after minimum equivalent is met. This means if we reach over a total of $6667 in sales, you are no longer charged the minimum and will only be charged 30% 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.
We do not provide clean out or buy out services for public 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.
