Advertising & Marketing Your Sale
been in business for over 20 years, we have developed a large and loyal
repeat customer base. In addition to attracting our regular customers,
we also promote your sale on
and our Website. We will also email our 3,000+ customers the week prior
to your sale.
Organizing & Staging
a few days to arrange the items for sale in your home. We will empty
cabinets, closets, drawers, and attic in order to maximize your sales.
When necessary, we will bring in tables and tablecloths to display and
arrange your items. In addition to cleaning any items that are dirty, we
will arrange furniture in a manner that will appeal to buyers.
Outs & Leftovers
In most sales, we sell about 80% of the contents. At the conclusion of
your sale, we can put you in touch with auctions, clean out companies,
and others that will help you disperse of the remaining items.
We work on a percentage of the total
sale, with 40% being the normal rate. This rate is reduced to 33% for
sales that gross over $25,000. This rate covers the price of staff &
advertising. The average sale requires over 100 hours of setup,
marketing, sales, & security. Since we appeal to retail customers, we
often achieve higher prices than auctions or other venues. In addition,
our years of experience ensure that all of your items will be priced
properly & sold for a fair price.
