A COUPLE OF DUSTY OLD BAGS

We have listed a few of the most common FAQ's we have received regarding estate liquidation sales and estate sale services.


Q: What is an Estate Sale?

A.There are different kinds of Estate Sales:
     1) Liquidation: of the entire contents due to a passing of a loved one or long term illness.
     2) Moving Estate Sale: All or partial sale of contents of a home.  Moving out of state, putting a love one           
         into assistance living housing where space is limited.
     3) Down sizing:   Move from a large home to a smaller one where space in limited.

Q:  What is the difference between an Estate Sale and garage sale?

A:  Garage sale is usually conducted on driveways and lawns and unwanted items toys, clothing, and any   
     items that are no longer wanted are sold.
     An Estate Sale is conducted inside the home and most if not all the contents are for sale.

Q: Why hire a professional?

A: Holding your own estate sale involves a tremendous amount of preparation; far more than people realize. It will demand a great deal of your time, organization and research. In addition to that, there are numerous common traps to navigate which these combined conditions create, especially during what is already a stressful time with emotions running high and energy running low. Despite all your hard work and time invested, you can have little to show for your efforts.

Q:  How do I choose an estate sale company?

A:  Ask for references, make sure they have insurance, visit their web site and most importantly if you feel
     comfortable with the people you meet.   How long have they been in business, do they have a personal
     mailing list, what web sites to they advertise on. 

Q:  How much will it cost me to have a estate sale company run a sale?

A:  This is a tough one in order to give a accurate answer the estate sale person must come to your home    
     and evaluate the contents, see how much work to set up the house, how many people will be need for
     the set up and the actual sale its self. 



Q: How can I get the most value for my items?

A: First and foremost, if you are considering an estate sale liquidation we strongly encourage you to NOT throw anything out prior to meeting with us. Items of unknown value are frequently overlooked as worthless when in fact they can command a surprising return for you. Through expert care and knowledge, we value your belongings to ensure the maximum return is obtained.


Q:  What should I through out?

A:  Through out nothing until you have the estate sale company you hired come in and see whats there what
     you think is trash or of no value could be worth dollars to you.

Q:  What happens to the items that are not sold?

A:  Some companies also offer to do the clear outs and will charge you on removing what ever is left.  This
     might sound like the way to go but be careful as this could be a conflict of interest.   Some companies 
     might have outlets for selling what is left and this might be considered double dipping.  Charging you to
     removing the items and then selling them for a profit.   Best to ask them about this
