After we receive your call or email, we set up an initial free consultation in your house. This is done in order to view your contents, and make suggestions regarding price points and other matters to allow for the online sale to happen. We review any time constraints or financial goals you may have, and come to an agreement on the services to be provided for the online sale and the compensation arrangements. All of this is then documented in a detailed contract.
Appraisals and Pricing
We will research / price all goods so that you obtain fair market value when they are sold. Our appraisal services include but are not limited to photographing, documenting and researching items you wish to have sold. We conduct research, converse with industry experts, examine historical values considering the items condition, and assign a realistic market value to your possessions. We assure that you will get the most money possible for your possessions and even allow you to submit a minimum price for any item you wish. If this price is not obtained then the item is kept for you.
Preparing for the sale
We know that not everyone’s house is designed for a sale, and that is why we have our online store as an option. There is absolutely no set up to be done on your end. We will come in and take digital photos of all items and post them on our online store for our customers to view and make purchases online.
Advertising the Sale
The sale is advertised and marketed extensively in order to attract the largest number of qualified buyers for your household items. We contact all necessary buyers depending on the items you have for sale and direct them to our site. We also email our extensive contact list which is comprised of people that want to be notified in advance for sales like yours and who are looking to buy! Our email list is BY FAR the largest in the country. . We post ads on all of our social media platforms as well to make sure your sale is seem by the most amount of eyeballs. We don’t stop advertising until the sale is complete.
The day of the sale
We make you sale live on the website and watch the buying begin! We have the highest success rate in the industry based on percentage of items sold during our online sales due to our extensive contact list and large customer base. From the large items to the small, we will sell it all!
Pick ups and moving of purchased items are the buyers responsibility, not yours. When filling out the initial contract we will choose a set time for pickups which is usually one day for a few hours. Buyers know to arrive with enough time to pack and move their items and will bring packing materials, boxes, bags, dollies, tools, tape, etc, and whatever else they need to remove their items, They will bring enough assistance to lift heavy items as you are not responsible to assist them with their removal of items.
After the sale
As we promise to be there for you every step of the way, our complete solution with extensive range of services doesn’t wrap up after the pick ups at the sale’s completion. Left over unsold items still belong to you but if you wish, we can remove any items that are not sold during the online sale. We can drop off all unsold items to a local charity such as Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity or The Salvation Army. Items that charities will not accept will be taken to a legal city dump for proper disposal. We make sure the house is completely clean and presentable for new owners or tenants before our job is done. That process can be as simple or as detailed as you wish, and is guaranteed to be completed by the date you specify. After our job is done, we will leave you with your copy of the “sign-off” sheet, along with a cheque for your percentage of the money obtained from the sale of your goods.
