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.
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.
