Cyber Attack On Twitter Prevents EstateSalesNews.com Tweet

A cyber attack on Twitter prevented EstateSalesNews.com from tweeting it’s Friday article. We were able to tweet the article late Friday afternoon.

Twitter wasn’t the only website attacked. It also involved Netflix and other major websites.

It is important to call this to our audience attention. Cyber attacks can occur on any website. This is disconcerting about social media sites because thousand of estate liquidators use them.

This is an important concern for any estate sale company using social media.

As perspective sellers or buyers be sure if you receive emails on a regular basis that you check the estate sale company website in case an email does not arrive on schedule in your mail box so you won’t miss any news or upcoming estate sale info.

Estate Sales Friday

It’s estate sales Friday. There are many estate sales across the country.

East coast to west coast, north to south estate sales are happening by the thousands.

High end estate sales, hoarder sales, estate sales with collections, privately listed estate sales.

If you are looking for an estate sale company this is a great weekend to go out and visit estate sales in your area.

Check out the way they handle entering the sale. How does the estate sale appear. Is it staged well? Are signs posted about all sales final, no returns, forms of payments accepted, security and more?

Look at the way items are priced and tagged. Did they use tags, adhesive tape, stickers and what type of items were they placed on. Ephemera especially should be carefully tagged (best in a plastic bag) and then a sticker on the bag so no damage to the item.

It is also time to think about what you might need for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. Now is a great time to start shopping for dishes, glassware, flatware, decorations etc.

A reminder – PLEASE read the terms, conditions, and descriptions of each estate sale on the various advertising websites. Being empowered with knowledge before attending an estate sale is very important for many reasons.

Bring you estate sale kit with you, including flashlight, bags and boxes, wrapping, water and a loop or magnifying glass..

Be sure to check out each one of these estate sale advertising websites. Many estate liquidators only use one advertising website. Don’t forget to check out Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too.

Happy shopping and here is where you can find estate sales this weekend.

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.

A Special Estate Sale Weekend, Stand Up To Cancer And 9/11 Rembered

This is a special estate sale weekend. Estate sales will be taking place all over the country. However, tonight is a CNN telethon Stand Up To Cancer and on Sunday we remember and mark the 15th anniversary of American’s worst day – 9/11.

So many estate sale companies have had staff affected by cancer. Even your editor 20 years ago had cancer. Please take some time tonight and donate if you can to the CNN Stand Up To Cancer Telethon.

On Sunday 9/11 we will remember the 15th anniversary of the attack on New York and Washington when almost 3,000 Americans were killed by terrorists. Our world was forever changed. Including how we do business and the way we take notice of people and our environment.

EstateSalesNews.com will pause at 8:47am on Sunday when the north tower was struck. We were 10 miles away that day and it has forever changed us.

We wish all estate sale companies success this weekend. Please remember our service members who keep us safe and make possible our free economy. We also pause to stand and remember the families and friends of those lost that day. So much to remember!

This Week’s Estate Sales News, Information And Tips

 

EstateSalesNews.com shares this weeks estate sales news, information and tips.

On Sunday, August, 20th The Orange County Register in California published an article “The 7 Things You Need To Know About Selling Everything In Your House”. This article featured Simone Kelly from Grasons and your editor Carol Madden of EstateSalesNews.com. This article went national through Google Alerts.

An estate sale company was conducting an estate sale and selling a gas grill. The estate sale company hadn’t cleaned it and when a couple went to steal it they were surprised by a massive number of bees nesting inside the grill attacking them.

A “real estate” firm from Seal Beach California wrote internet multi-page article “How to Choose An Estate Sale Company”. EstateSalesNews.com offers a link at the top left of our Front Page to assist you. The article appears to have been written with assistance from two of the three major estate sale advertising listing sites as they were mentioned and linked in the ad. Realtors now giving advice on estate sale business without experience. There is no mention of estate liquidation experience from the real estate company.

Collecting sales tax at estate sales is necessary unless the state the sale is being conducted in exempts estate sales from sales tax. For example Florida and California collect sales tax, New Jersey does not.

Two large estate sales will take place next week. One in Tampa, Florida is a 4 day estate sale with 20 shipping containers filled with multiple collections. The other estate sale will be 3 days and includes an entire village collected by one gentleman in Onamia, Minnesota. EstateSalesNews.com will feature pictures and information from both estate sales early next week.

Shipping Containers, Cars, Jewelry, Coins At One Estate Sale

20 shipping containers, cars (vintage and used), jewelry, coins at one estate sale being conducted by Full House Liquidation in Tampa, Florida starting September 1st.

I spoke with the owner of Full House Liquidation, Danny Triplett about this upcoming Tampa estate sale.

The sale is from two brothers who were hoarders. They even used twenty 40ft. shipping containers to store in.

This estate sale includes six cars including a vintage Corvair, Kharman Gia, and VW van. There are two Suzuki motorcycles. The sale includes 100’s of brand new diecast cars, six or seven late 1800  trunks. Lone Star Boy Scout magazines, crates of brand new mens clothing with tags still attached, jewelry, coins and they are still sorting through this enormous amount of items.

This estate sale is so large the preparation is taking four weeks with staff working long hours.

The estate sale will take place for 4 days starting September 1.

EstateSalesNews.com will report on this estate sale again before it begins.
