… At Your Service!

First Steps for Owners/Estate Representatives to Know:

  1. "One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure" therefore we encourage you to please do not throw anything out!!!!! What might be trash to you could very well be of a greater value to a picker.

  2. Don't donate until you meet with us. In most every situation is pays to liquidate then donate. If a donation is needed we will make that donation for you and hand you the receipt for your tax records.

  3. One of the most important steps before we come on board is to identify and remove items from the sale that you and/or your immediate family may want to keep. It is important they are removed from the premises ensuring that our inventory matches what we actually will sell for you
