    The Estate Sale

    An Estate Sale is a comprehensive Personal Property Liquidation, usually conducted by a Professional service at a clients premises. It is typically a two or three day event which draws collectors, antique and second hand dealers, and the interested public. Price negotiations are a common feature of these sales, especially on the final day. Most people select a liquidator to conduct a sale for a variety of reasons. Individuals are often unaware of the value of the property, are sometimes emotionally distraught as a result of a loss, or are simply overwhelmed by the work and requirement involved. Conducting a sale of this type is not for the faint-hearted. Well advertised sales having interesting property can attract two thousand customers over a three day period.

    The Garage Sale

    Garage Sales are abbreviated versions of Estate Sales. Many of the procedures are the same, but typically Garage Sales deal with property of more modest value and require less staffing and set up time. Because of the limited yield it is often conducted by a single staff member in the garage and driveway of the home. Sometimes clients elect to conduct their own garage sale with pricing advice from the liquidator, and thus can maximize profit from the sale.
