WHAT SHOULD YOU DO FIRST?
First, give us a call. We will meet with you to determine your concerns and questions, and to identify your needs and goals of having a sale. We evaluate your home and property to determine the best method to present the estate to the public. After meeting with you, we will formulate a plan that will effectively and efficiently assist us in generating a successful sale.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DONATE OR THROW AWAY?
We always advise clients not to throw anything away or donate goods until we’ve had our initial meeting. Almost everything is worth something. And a lot of the time, the things you think won’t sell, do sell. One's trash is another's treasure.
IS THERE A CONSULTATION CHARGE?
We are pleased to meet with you about a sale. The initial consultation is on a “no cost/no obligation” basis.
WHAT ARE THE FEES?
We work on a commission structure. Our fees generally include research, appraising, planning, pricing, organization, and staffing of the sale. We take care of advertising for a set fee discussed at the time of evaluation.
HOW DO WE PRICE ITEMS IN THE SALE?
With over 12 years of experience, our team members have comprehensive knowledge in many areas and specialties of antiques, collectibles, coin, military items, cars, fine art, decorative objects and contemporary and modern furnishings. We use our own industry experience, various research methods, our network of specialists and current online resources to provide accurate, fair market value on all antiques and higher priced valuables.
HOW DO WE ATTRACT BUYERS TO THE SALE?
We advertise your sale on the Grandson's Estate Sales website, nation-wide estate sale listing websites, in local newspaper inserts, and with an e-mail announcement to our newsletter subscribers including our private list of dealers, collectors, and decorators. These promotions are specifically designed to draw the highest number of potential buyers to your sale.
WHAT HAPPENS TO ITEMS AT THE END OF SALE?
At the end of the liquidation, we pack remainder of unsold items for donation day. We use local non-profit organizations to setup appointments for you.. We recommend organizations that are reliable and insured for time sensitive projects
WHEN CAN YOU EXPECT PAYMENT?
We forward you a check for the net proceeds of the sale, less our commission, and any other contracted charges, within 10 business days after the conclusion of the sale.
