Canterbury Estate Sales, LLC 

We conduct on-site whole-house estate sales in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia. Estate sales are often the best option when faced with settling an estate, moving to a retirement home, downsizing or relocating. We specialize in large estates.

Our goal is to relieve our clients of the responsibilities and stress the challenges of clearing a household full of personal items and furnishings may bring. We do all the work, start-to-finish. With a commitment to professional service through efficient, knowledgeable, and thorough organization, every client's unique needs are satisfied. Our sales are two or three-day events that are expertly organized, priced, and well-advertised. We offer a quick settlement and our reputation is very important to us.

Our most recent feedback (6/2017) from a client: "Canterbury Estate Sales provided a professional and much needed service to me and my family when it came time to bid farewell to years and years of collectibles, furniture, tools, kitchen items, and antiques that had been collected in our house over the course of a lifetime. They evaluated and priced each item individually and fairly, and did all the advertising needed to make the sale a complete success. Payment was prompt, received just two days after the close of the sale, and even included a detailed accounting of the selling price of each item for my records. Unsold items were removed from the house and donated to local charities on my behalf. The house was left clean and well organized. I highly recommend Canterbury's services."

Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 326.


Our Testimonials

After our father passed away, my sister and I were left with the task of cleaning out our childhood home and our parents possessions. This was a daunting task as we live in Georgia and Florida. Beth came over to appraise the situation and the home on a holiday and immediately put our minds at ease. She sent photos over the next couple of weeks documenting their progress in organizing and preparing for the estate sale. Trusting strangers with our childhood memorabilia was never an issue - contact was often and pertinent- providing great comfort to us so far away. Upon finding some items that we may have overlooked as emotional ties or valuable, they contacted us and sent them to us rather than assuming they should be sold. After speaking with another company who spoke of the house negatively, we were delighted to work with such a professional pair who worked so hard to garner a great sale at a fair price and donated to community services what could not be sold.

Now that it is all over, I want you to know how very much I and my family appreciated your help in liquidating my father’s estate. You clearly explained to us what, when and how things would happen, and then you executed, professionally, punctually and successfully, (we had no idea how much hard work goes into accomplishing an estate sale). It was a great relief to us to just turn everything over to you. Besides all that, you are both delightful to work with. Many people here in Scottsville noted how well things were organized. I don’t need to recommend you to them for their future needs, but I would. Thanks for everythingBarry G.February 2013
Beth and her team at Canterbury were fantastic! We were dealing with a wide variety of collectibles, household goods, books and electronics, many of which were obscure, and determining their value was complicated. Beth did extensive research and was able to properly identify the items which resulted in us getting top dollar for things we never would have been able to properly identify, price and sell ourselves. We live out of state, so the team at Canterbury were our eyes and ears during this entire process. We were kept in the loop every step of the way. Thanks to their professionalism, organization and expertise, they took the burden off our shoulders and obtained results we never thought possible. They sorted through rooms and rooms filled with years worth of personal items and collectibles to find things of value and discard the trash. They accomplished in weeks what would have taken us months, if not years, to complete. Hiring Canterbury Estate Sales to help us through the difficult task of sorting through a beloved family member's home was one of the best decisions we've ever made.C. DawsonFebruary 2015
Wow! Beth and her team are the consummate professionals. They know their business inside/out. They communicate in detail with regard to their planning for the sale. They spend days organizing and displaying the items to be sold. We were amazed at the amount of planning and effort that goes into preparing for a sale and the marketing of the sale to prospective buyers. Beth and her folks earned every penny of their share of the proceeds from the sale. We consider their fee a bargain given the sheer amount of work that they did and the skill and professionalism with which they did it. In addition, they saved us the hassle of trying to sell a houseful of stuff ourselves or donating it to charity. By the way, Beth and everyone on her team all also extremely nice people and were a pleasure to work with.
I cannot recommend Canterbury Estate Sales highly enough. They set the standard for what an estate sale company should be and I believe that they are without peer in central Virginia and beyond. If you are considering an estate sale, do yourself a huge favor and call Canterbury. I guarantee that you will be extremely pleased with their services.

My husband and I hired Canterbury Estate Sales to help us conduct an estate sale for our late uncle’s property. As we live out of town it was a relief to find Beth to help us with this undertaking. They went above and beyond what was expected. They took care of everything, from placing ads, pricing, staging, research, polishing silver to directing traffic the day of the sale. Their attention to detail and professional manner helped make the success of the estate sale well beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is need of professionals to help them with an estate sale. You won’t be disappointed!Liz B.June 2012
