Who uses estate sale services?

Previous clients include executors of an estate, probate attorneys, family members and baby boomers downsizing to a smaller home or senior community.

How do I know if I have enough to use your services?

Sometimes a phone call is all it takes. Generally we need to visit the location of your sale and discuss the best way to sell your items. Of course, there is no cost for this consultation.

Do you neeed my help during the sale?

Once we are on the job, your work is done. We take care of everything, so you don’t have to worry about anything.

Do I need to have a house full of antiques to have an estate sale?

Not at all. Visit the photo gallery on our website to see examples of previous sales. Buyers perceive an estate sale different than a garage sale. We have sold antique, contemporary and vintage furniture, jewelry, clothing, tools, appliances, garden equipment, plants and automobiles. We have sold everything from rocks to a Rolls Royce.

What happens to the items that don't sell?

With every sale, there will generally be a little bit left over. These items can be donated to charity, retained by the owner or discarded at your discretion.

How is Trunk Full of Treasures paid?

We are paid a percentage of the sale proceeds. This is negotiated with you based upon the size of the estate and the amount of preparation involved. We carefully go over the contract with you to insure there is no confusion concerning our services.

How do you know what price to charge?

We have been assisting clients since 1999. Our team of professionals includes an accredited antique appraiser, and a group of specialists in various fields who assist pricing to achieve maximum results.

How does it work after I hire you?

There’s no need for you to continue cleaning or disposing of any items. You won’t 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 of papers get lost in the shuffle.

We organize and price your items, we schedule advertising, post signage, run the sale, and make arrangements for the items that don’t sell.
