Throughout the liquidation process, you household contents will be treated with respect. We understand that you are not only liquidating personal property, but that you have memories associated with many of the items sold. Our goal is to provide you with a professional liquidation and to help eliminate any stress normally associated with such situations.

Our company is licensed, bonded, and insured for your protection. We have many safeguards built into our business practices to help avoid shoplifting and tag switching. 

It usually takes us from 2-3 weeks to set up and price a sale and market a sale properly (may vary due to size of estate) During this time, all contents of the estate are researched and inspected and every item is priced by a qualified appraiser. Gas driven appliances are started if possible, cars for sale are washed and detailed, and valuables are displayed in locked display cases. We take great care in cleaning and presenting your estate to make each item as desirable as possible and making the sale reach its potential.

We recently rescued an "ugly funny metal thing"   from our client's trash pile and offered to sell it online for her. She was thrilled when it  brought in $150.00

We offered a couple of paintings online for a client who earlier  had a professional art appraiser tell  him they were worthless. The first painting brought in $360, and the second one brought in $1250!  Not bad for a couple of "worthless" paintings, Woo Hoo!

 Why Might I Need This?
it some cases of senior relocation or family loss, the family/trustee has no idea who comes and goes from the empty home  (I could write a book on this subject)  and with my husband and son both being licensed locksmith this is a service that can be invalueable.

just an option to consider
