Now Is The Time To Look, Interview And Book Your 2014 Estate Sale

2013 is drawing to a close and now is an excellent time to start looking, interviewing, and booking an estate sale for 2014.

Most estate liquidators see a slow down in business over the holiday season and although some take vacation others do not. This should present you with an opportunity to speak to a selection of estate liquidators. Do not hesitate to reach outside your immediate area if you do not have an estate sale company in your community or only one.

With business easing back from the approach of Christmas estate sale companies will usually be happy to take time to speak with you for a phone interview and if you choose a face to face interview.

Although most of the listing sites for estate sales are currently showing some sales as far out as February and even into March, this gives you the opportunity to have a better choice of when you would like to have your estate sale. January can present challenges depending on where you live, however, if you need a sale press on. Many states that experience winter weather have road crews that are out in front of winter weather events and that is important. You should ask any estate sale company you interview how they work with winter weather. Do they salt and sand the side walks (or is that your responsibility which it well could be)? How do they protect the interior floors ( brown paper, plastic, etc.) and if the weather is really bad will they extend the sale and how will they let the public know about the extension.

Whatever you decide, the more advance time you have to find your estate sale company and afford them maximum marketing time for your sale, the more you improve the opportunity excellent financial success for you and the estate sale company.
