Weather Effects On Estate Sales – Open, Closed Go Or No

Weather effects on estate sales can take their toll, however, safety for all is the primary concern.

Hurricane Matthew is heading to the east coast of Florida. Hurricane warnings are up as far inland as Orlando.

This is not stopping some estate sale companies from starting their estate sales today in the central Florida area.

Looking on estate sale advertising websites in the metro Orlando area, several estate sale companies are opening their sales this morning for most of the day. These companies have included in their ads that they will be closed tomorrow for the hurricane.

EstateSalesNews.com has also found some companies that have postponed their estate sales until next weekend.

This is a judgement call for each estate sale company. We wonder though with the warnings in effect, the number of closed businesses, schools etc. if conducting an estate sale even today is a wise idea.

Conducting estate sales when the weather is bad (hurricanes, blizzards, flooding rains) is risky for several reasons. Having estate sale company owners and their staff driving to and from the sale is a concern. Looking for buyers to come out to shop also is questionable.

Roads may be clogged with last minute people buying hurricane supplies or driving to shelters. Having a full tank of gas in your automobile is a must in case of power loss. Keeping cash on hand is another consideration.

EstateSalesNews.com wishes all of the residents that will be affected by hurricane Matthew to be safe.
