This week reminds us that families dealing with the estates of loved ones is often a difficult time and part of the job of the estate liquidator is to be understanding and help relieve some of the stress. The estate sale liquidator and many of their staff wear many hats.
For most this week is a day to rest, recoup, and enjoy their family.
EstateSalesNews.com will be enjoying this Thanksgiving week with our family too.
Today is our last day to publish this week. We’ll be back on Monday, December 1st.
We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving with the joy and blessings of family and friends and our United States.
To all the men and women who have or are serving Estate Sales News thanks you for your service. Providing all of us with yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

We will assume they have a sale starting today. If that is the case they have probably spent the week sorting, cleaning, and staging your personal property. They have priced (and when necessary researched) the bulk of your items for sale. Depending on the size of your estate sale they may have worked 6, 8, 10, 12 or even more hours per day. Along with sorting, cleaning, polishing, pricing, and staging your sale estate liquidators have been busy making sure that all advertising, internet, social media, and possibly print media are in place. Most estate sale company owners do this themselves so that work is done either before they come to your property or after they leave.
The estate sale liquidators’ day doesn’t end though when they leave your property. The may return buyer inquiries either by phone or email, respond to perspective sellers, and in some cases, may be checking on the clean out or final pay out of the sale the previous weekend.
They also have to oversee their staff and make sure that all necessary signage and security is in place for your sale. Permits (if required) may have to be posted in a visible position and their method of crowd control must be in place (sign in sheet, number system etc.)
The estate liquidator has probably also dealt with any emotional or stress issues of the seller. You could say they wear many hats.
As the time approaches they make sure everyone is in place, price tags are visible, show cases secure, any rooms not to be involved are secured, cash needed to start is in place along with working credit card internet access is available.
Signs advising buyers of any regulations pertaining to the sale or property must also be visibly posted.
If the sale starts at 9:00am the estate sale owner or manager will probably open the door at 8:59am to advise those waiting for entrance of any conditions property or sale wise that they need to be aware of.
9:00am IT BEGINS!
