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 10-14 days (depending on the volume to be sold) to turn your home into a retail location where everything is organized, priced fairly and displayed appropriately. 

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 regarding our fee, please visit “Your Portion of the Gross Sales”.

What is included in your fee?

Included in our estate sale service fee is the cost of advertising/marketing, staffing/labor during set-up and for the event, security and parking assistance (when necessary), all supplies, set-up materials and any transaction fees. Basically, anything that we may need to effectively 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 local or regional advertising on, facebook 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 not only Raleigh and Charlotte, but from our NC coastal and mountains regions as well. We even have a loyal following of folks driving in from Virginia, South Carolina and Tennessee to attend 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.

Do you collect sales tax?

Yes. North Carolina law requires that we collect sales tax. We handle all aspects of this process with the state.

Do you allow previews or pre-sales?

We do not allow previews or pre-sales of sale items. This includes not allowing our staff members, neighbors or anyone else to pre-purchase anything from a sale site. Our goal is to be fair to our customers, especially to those that travel great distances to attend our sales in person. Our only exception to pre-sales is the sale of vehicles.

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. 

Do I have to be present during the sale?

The simple answer, is no. If you’re the homeowner or their loved-one, you’ll really want to ask yourself whether you personally want to be present during what can be a highly emotional time. From the moment we enter the home to complete our set-up process all the way through the sale days, we are there to insure your items are presented in the best light possible so they can be sold at the highest value possible [dependent on the current market conditions]. Being present during the sale can create uncomfortable situations for both you and potential buyers and may impact your bottom line and ours. Remember, you’re hiring us handle all aspects of the estate sale and deal with any and all issues that arise, so you don’t have to.
