Introducing our "mini" Estate Sale concept
So you want to have an estate sale.
But you don't have a sufficient number of items to make up a typical weekend estate sale, or you want to remain in charge of pricing and the sale?
We have an answer for you.
Our program lets you remain totally in charge of your own sale, and staff it with your own trusted friends and family members. You also have the final say as to the prices of your items in the sale. We supply the marketing expertise & equipment: Pricing tags, Suggested prices comparable to other estate sales, Assistance in staging your items for sale, Sales personnel (two individuals per sale; more available with a larger base cost), Credit card processing equipment, Yard signs, Sales & Display Tables, Pricing Tags, Boxes and Packaging Materials, Online Advertising, 1-2 Another customer email promotion, In-store promotion of your event, etc.
We furnish the ideas on how to best stage your sale, along with someone to help you price your items, and to assist at the sales desk during your sale. Our onsite management assistance, including the the time we are involved in pricing of your items, is limited to 15 hours prior to the actual sale without an additional charge. We highly recommend your estate sale be limited to only one or two days, generally during the week, not competing with other sales. That way it is over and done with quickly!
Our base service fee is $250 for a 1-day sale, or $500 for a 2-day sale. This includes: Up to 15 hours pricing, staging and preparing for your mini estate sale, 2 staff members during the actual sale, and the pickup of unsold items which are then taken to our warehouse where we continue the process of selling those items. (We only pickup items selling for a minimum of $25, and have been specially tagged prior to the sale).
In addition, we receive 35% of the income generated for the personnel working the sale, advertising costs, and the pickup of unsold specially 1-2 Another tagged items. We do not require a minimum gross amount of sales.
The best part...we pick up at no extra charge all unsold 1-2 Another tagged items selling for a minimum of $10 that remain (excludes food or other perishables and clothing). These items are transported to our consignment showroom for sale, or will be placed in one of our upcoming Estate Sales-Bid online estate auctions. This gives you a way to continue your downsizing with money flowing in long after your estate sale ends.
