To start, Peg will visit your home or residence and will walk through and review the contents and decide if the home has the amount to actually proceed with a sale. Now is the time for us to agree to our terms, sign a contract and set a date. For most sales, Peg (& crew) start working 7 to 10 days before the sale dates, depending on the amount of work to be done.
We bring in folding tables & tablecloths to display the small items to be sold. We unload cabinets, closets, and drawers. We have portable shelving and lockable showcases to be used when necessary. After displaying everything to be sold, we research and then price everything Pricing is based on our knowledge of the market-place over the last 20+ years, a reference library, and a network of individuals with expertise in specific areas.
We write and place all print ads, social media and flyers. Over the course of the sale days, we can usually sell 90-95% of items for sale. Items that are left can be donated to charity, retained by the owner, or discarded at the client's discretion. We usually have three-day sales (Friday-Sunday) depending on the size of the sale. The first day is full price, second day is 30% off and the third day is 50% off. Any item sold is documented with a receipt, so we have a record of everything that was sold from the home.
We can sell virtually anything that is legal and safe to be sold. Antique, contemporary, used furniture, collectibles, clothing, costume and fine jewelry. Art, appliances, tools, garden equip., cars and RVs, household items. You name it!
Executors of an estate, people moving to a retirement/nursing home, out of state, or just downsizing. In fact, anyone who needs to sell most of their homes contents.
