HOW TO CHOOSE AN ESTATE SALE COMPANY
Before you choose which estate sale company you will use to liquidate your assets:1. Interview the owners of the business2. Check multiple references3. Visit a sale before you make your choice! (Anyone can call themselves an estate sale company—the proof is in the actual estate sale itself!)4. Determine if they wash the china, dishes and any surfaces that will be used for display5. Ensure they will make the home clean, organized and presentable6. Determine that they will attempt to sell every single item in the home. (Beware when a company asks to donate large amounts of items prior to your sale or, as a local company we know of frequently does, asks for a dumpster!)7. Verify they will run a three-day estate sale (Unless your home is unusually small, you should never accept a one or two-day sale!)Call us today at 803-586-8393 for a FREE, one-hour consultation.
