About Trunk Full of Treasures
Trunk Full of Treasures
Serving clients since 2001 in Southern California and Denver, Colorado. What we mean by full service is we sell the entire contents of the home. We have sold everything from landscape rocks to a Rolls Royce and even the home in some cases. We work with Realtors, Attorneys and Executors of the estate.
Many times potential clients are concerned they don’t have enough for an estate sale. We have found when we visit the home for our no-cost consultation; we are able to discuss exactly what services we are able to offer.
When you hire us, there’s no need to continue cleaning or disposing of any items. You won’t even have to lift a finger for your sale. Our team will empty cupboards, clear out drawers and closets, and display the items for maximum exposure. We make sure that none of the important things you want to save like personal photos or papers get lost in the shuffle.
At the end of every sale there is usually some stuff left. We work with a “buy-out/clean out” company that will remove everything. The house is broom swept and/or vacuumed on our way out. Our clients appreciate that the house is empty when we are finished with the sale.
We’ve sold everything from rocks to a Rolls Royce.
