Estate Sale Companies Advice For Sellers Before The Sale

Recently, Estate Sales News had the opportunity to discuss with many estate sale companies from across the United States what they would advise sellers before the estate liquidation process begins. The advice we were given from estate sale companies is important for sellers and/or heirs to help make the estate sale successful.

Here are the items they feel strongly about and that are of great importance for both parties.

Don’t throw anything away until an estate liquidator has viewed the contents. You never know what might have value. The only exceptions should be perishable foods, used plastic food containers, medications, income tax or personal papers.

Be sure you leave the property air conditioned whether it is occupied or not. Heat and/or humidity can ruin many items. In the winter, be sure that the heat remains on too. Be sure that electricity to the property is on until the sale is over and the estate sale company has vacated the property.
