What is Luke/Edwards process for liquidating your estate? The first step to smoothly conducting a sale is preparing and explaining the process to the seller. We will schedule a consultation with the seller to cover all important information. At this meeting, we will familiarize ourselves with your estate and discuss what will be for sale and what items will be excluded from the sale. Knowing the above will better enable our company to direct you in choosing the best sales option, according to volume, time restraints, and other variables. At this meeting a contract for handling your sale will be presented and discussed. Upon agreement of our company and the seller the contract will be signed by both parties. Upon agreement of sale dates, our team of professionals will come on site and begin preparing for your sale. Normally, we arrive on site two weeks before the scheduled sale dates, depending on various variables. Our team will handle all items in closets, storage buildings on the property, cabinets, attics, and drawers. On site, our company supplies, tables, table cloths, tickets, signage, and email lists, again, at no further cost to you, the seller. We will enthusiastically open doors at 9:00am on sale days (except Sundays which will be 12:00) No pre-sales are allowed! The balance of items not sold at the end of the sale is sold to estate liquidators or donated to charitable organizations with the tax receipts going to our clients.
