Should We get rid of things that we know are of no value, such as old postcards, magazines, newspapers or cleaning supplies, furniture, clothing etc.?
No! This is the biggest mistake people make when preparing to conduct a sale. Many people would consider certain items "junk", but that junk may be a diamond in the rough, or a treasure to a collector. Let us take care of the separating for you. This is part of our service. DO NOT THROW ANYTHING AWAY!!
We have 100 baby food jars full of old bolts and screws. Should we keep these?
Absolutely! Each jar could be sold for $1.00 a piece. $1.00 x 100 jars = $100.00... get the picture?
Is it ok for us to take all the old clothes, towels, linens and sheets to goodwill?
Everything sells. While it is common practice and charitable, these items are completely sell-able at the estate, moving & tag sales. Please refrain from discarding or donating these items prior to the sale.
Where do we begin?
Once you contact Sisters In Charge Tag Sales, we will meet with you at your convince to evaluate your items to determine the type of sale that best fits your needs. We can setup a specific time to come out and meet you or your representative at the location. Free Of Charge!!!
What happens at the first meeting?
Once on site, we can assess and determine the contents of a sale. What this means is we will determine whether or not there are enough items in the residence and what the saleability of the merchandise is. This will allow us to then make a decision as to whether or not you should have an estate sale , moving sale or if you should use our alternative services to liquidate the contents of the home.
What is the fee for coming to the house and assessing it for an estate sale?
Our consultation and meeting with you is "free", of charge. If we determine a sale is not warranted, we will recommend other alternatives and provide you guidance on who to contact. We would not recommend anyone we would not allow in our own home.
Family members and myself would like to have some of the contents in the house. How should we handle this?
We ask that you or family members try know of the items that you would like to keep prior to us coming out to assess the sale items. This will allow us to conduct a thorough assessment of what the sale can bring. Also, we ask that you remove any personal paperwork from the residence, such as birth certificates, social security cards, drivers license, passports, military documents, bank statements, pay stubs, medical bills, etc. Anything we may find that you may have missed we will put in a secure place for you. Even loose change!!
There are some items that we want to keep, but do not want to remove them from the house. How is this handled?
Any items that you would like to keep that will remain in the house will be moved and secured in a certain room or area of the house and marked as not for sale. We place Caution Tape with Do Not Enter Signs on any rooms that are off limits.
Do I need to rent tables, display cabinets or clothes racks?
No, we will bring in tables, display cases and clothing racks, book cases, etc. to display merchandise.
If the executor lives out of state, can we still have an estate sale and how?
Yes! We handle everything through email, faxing and registered mail. Very easy process! If you're working with a local realtor or with a lawyer, we can go through them as well.
What other services do you offer?
We have a great reputation with many real estate agents, home appraisers, certified jewelry appraisers, and estate lawyers. We can recommend and put you in touch with all of the above. We also have several liquidators that we can put you in touch with that can buy the left over merchandise for a bulk price. .
