Estate Sales and Estate Liquidation
Trusted Treasures Estate Sales, LLC offers Estate Sale services, and Professional Cleanout services for our clients.
An Estate Sale is the method of selling the contents of a home, warehouse, or other facility, in the event of death, downsizing, divorce or debt.
Household items do not have to be old or valuable. Items just need to be sellable. An estate sale professional can provide a free consultation to determine if home contents would make for a good sale.
At Trusted Treasures Estate Sales, we professionally transform our client’s home into a retail store for a one- to three-day sale, staffed by professionals. Prior to the sale, we prepare the home and it’s contents for the sale. There is no prep work required by the client. Estate sales are also known as Estate Liquidations, or Tag Sales.
Professional Cleanout services are offered for clients who don’t have enough for an estate sale, but need to empty a home. Items are either sold (via our extensive network of contacts), donated, or picked up by a refuse collector. For more information, click HERE.
Estate sales provide a quick means of disposing all items in a residence or location. Typically the estate sale company will retain a percentage of the sales in exchange for payment. At the end of the sale, unsold items can be donated to a charity, or sold via auction.
Homeowners and executors of estates are often surprised at how much value is in the home’s contents. Everything from linens and paper products to furniture and kitchenware are sellable. Even items attached to the home such as ceiling fans, mirrors, shelves, & chandeliers are often sold as part of the sale as well. Estate sale professionals price items according to the what they will sell in their market, and conduct a two to three day sale to sell the contents. Often, items not sold on the first day are offered at a discount on the last day.
Estate sales businesses should be licensed, bonded and insured. Receipts of all items sold, and an accounting of all transactions should be standard procedure. Be wary of estate sale businesses that do not provide receipts and/or an accounting of all transactions.
For an Estate Sale ‘Shopper,’ it is a treasure hunt experience! Hundreds of people visit any given estate sale in a weekend. Some are looking for specific items, while others don’t know what they are looking for until they find it! Shoppers include vintage lovers, collectors, designers, artists, economy shoppers, home owners, students, business owners, and many more treasure hunters.
Downsizing and Lifestyle TransitionTypically this can be a whole house, or several rooms in a home. Depending upon the amount of household items you have, we can determine what method of disbursement offers you the most cash for your treasures, within your designated time-frame.
No matter what your situation, we can find a solution for you. If we can’t help you, we will offer alternative options.
Professional Cleanout Services
Trusted Treasures Estate Sales, LLC is the FIRST to offer Professional Cleanout Services in the Triangle area!
For homeowners that don’t have enough items for a traditional estate sale, Professional Cleanouts are the perfect solution to empty a home.
Professional Cleanouts (one word; no dash) is Trusted Treasures’ method of disbursing household items in a professional, efficient manner while selling the valuables in the home. The home’s contents are divided into sell, donate, & refuse, and the process is coordinated by Trusted Treasures Estate Sales professionals.
For clients that don’t have enough items for full Estate Sale, but need to empty their or their parent’s home as a result of downsizing, death, divorce, or relocation, a Cleanout is an ideal solution. The Cleanout process can take as little as a few days, and we guarantee an empty home at the end of the process.
A family doing a Cleanout on their own can take 6 months or more, and can be an emotional and tedious process.
Today, even non-profit organizations such as the Salvation Army and Goodwill are turning down items because they do not sell at their retail locations. These items, often termed as ‘brown furniture,’ can be difficult to dispose. The good news is Trusted Treasures has the resources and network to efficiently empty a home.
After Trusted Treasures Estate Sales evaluates a client’s home and it’s belongings, owner Karen Meier & her staff
sorts the contents of the entire home, and divides items into three categories: Sell, Donation & Refuse (trash). They coordinate the pickup, sale, and disposal of all the items in the home.
Trusted Treasures Estate Sales uses their extensive contact network of local buying professionals to sell their client’s items. This includes buyers for furniture, antiques, jewelry, photographs, clothes, tools, appliances and much more.
For silver and estate jewelry, we have a relationship directly with the end-users, so we can offer top dollar for customer’s precious metals.
Donateable (nonsellable) items are inventoried, and one or more local nonprofit agency is contacted for pickup. For items that cannot be sold or donated, Trusted Treasu
res Estate Sales contracts with a local refuse business to remove these items from the premises.
Trusted Treasures Estate Sales realizes that each client is unique. We will evaluate your needs to determine the right estate service solution for your situation. Call today for a free evaluation, at 919-802-7386.
