How far in advance should I contact you?
Contact us as soon as you know you want to have an estate sale – the sooner the better! We typically need a minimum of 7 days to turn your home into a retail location where everything is organized, priced fairly and displayed appropriately. This time varies and is dependent on the size of your estate.
What is your fee?
First and foremost, we get paid when you get paid. We do not charge up-front fees, and we do not charge for the initial consultation to discuss your needs. The percentage we require comes out of the total Gross Sales made from your estate sale, and is dependent on many factors that we will become aware of once we are able to tour and assess your home/estate. For more information please refer to the services section of this website.
What is included in your fee?
Included in our estate sale service fee is the cost of advertising/marketing, staffing during set-up and for the event, security and parking assistance (when necessary), all supplies, any transaction fees. Basically, anything that we may need to conduct your sale.
Where and how do you advertise?
We advertise in a number of different ways. From directional signage that we use to get the drive by traffic, to advertising on EstateSales.net, Craigslist and here on our website. We also strive to take no less than 200 photos of each sale. By doing so, we have been able to successfully attract customers who happily travel from Raleigh and Charlotte as well our NC coastal and mountains regions. We even get folks driving in from Virginia, South Carolina and Tennessee to purchase at our sales!
Are you insured?
Yes! We are a registered business in the State of North Carolina and as such, we are also fully insured.
Can you handle the sale of vehicles?
Absolutely! We’ve handled the sale of cars/trucks and the like in the past. We have a number of customers/buyers (in-state and out-of-state) – that would probably love your vehicle! We typically offer these as ‘pre-sale’ items to make the process smoother for everyone.
Where will you conduct an estate sale?
Anywhere in central North Carolina – Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington, Kernersville, Lexington. We’ve even traveled to Concord, Huntersville and Raleigh… just ask!
What else do we need to know?
Just remember not to throw away or donate anything. Everything has value to someone and as a smart person once said, “fortunes are made one penny at a time”.
