repeat customer base. In addition to attracting regular customers,
we also promote your sale on

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 bring in tables and tablecloths to display and
arrange your items. In addition to cleaning any items that are dirty, we
arrange furniture in a manner that will appeal to buyers.
We will have at least
6 employees on site the day of your sale providing sales, customer
support, checkout and security. We use state of the art iPad Point
of Sales systems that allow us to track everything that is sold.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Cash, and Check. At
the end of the sale we provide the client with an itemized list of
items sold by category.
Outs & Leftovers
In most sales, we sell about 80% of the contents. At the conclusion of
the sale, we can put you in touch with auctions, clean out companies,
and others that will help you dispense of the remaining items.
We work on a percentage of the total
sale, with 40% being the normal rate.. This rate covers the price of staff, advertising
and credit card fees. 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.
