It is not just stuff to an older or elderly person. Someone I know was downsizing her 90 year old Mom to move to an assisted living apartment. She had been there 50 years. With the stress of packing and eliminating what wouldn’t fit in her mother’s new home she spoke of it as just stuff.
It isn’t just stuff to an older person having to downsize. It is a lifetime of memories. Shared with loved ones here and passed. Working with those who have been trained or have years of experience with the elderly is important to prepare them for the moment when delicate decisions must be made.
CRTS and others can teach those estate liquidators how to help ease this heavy task.
Estate sales can sell off much of what cannot go, but it is important to consider a loved ones’ feelings. Stuff implies little or no value. When you are moving out of a long time home many people feel the are leaving treasured lifetime moments.
Choosing words wisely can help assure an elderly or older person that you appreciate the difficulty in deciding what to keep, what to sell or what to donate or give to others.
Estate sale companies trained or very experienced in the eldercare field can be of great assistance helping a family to ease the stress and burden on their loved one. Estate liquidators wear many hats. Consulting with an estate sale company should be done before anything is eliminated or given away to assist families in how they approach the downsizing to assisted living or other care facilities. An estate liquidator will take a gentle third party approach.
Although professionals and others may call it stuff, when dealing with an owner, that is not a wise word to use. No longer necessary, too large, will you really need it, are just a few samples of things you can say with diplomacy.
Consulting with professional estate sale companies can be of great assistance for families and their loved ones.
Just remember it isn’t just stuff. It’s a lifetime to the owner.
There are several sources that offer to provide you with verified or successful estate sale companies. Unfortunately, most of these sources have never conducted an estate sale so recommending an estate sale company is merely utilizing information that they can readily acquire through the internet including BBB ratings (not a true indication of performance), feed back from sellers (written, not an actual conversation with them), the time you have been in business, verification of insurance (this is important), and the number of sales conducted within a period of time (numbers don’t add up to knowledge or success).
These are not what determines a successful liquidation company.
We put the question to hundreds of estate sale companies what they feel is important. Here are the answers we received.
It is a national holiday for Presidents day, however, estate sale companies are hard at work even today preparing estate sales for this coming weekend. Celebrate Presidents Day and the freedom it embodies with estate sales.
