Moving and Estate Sales 

As the old saying goes, you can’t take it with you! Well, not all of it anyway. When it’s time to sell your items, Moves Made Easier knows just how to help.

We use local online auction sites like BidRustBelt.com and NotYourMothersEstateSale.com to get you the most money possible for your things; it’s a modern and stress-free way to sell household belongings more easily and effectively than you could via a traditional estate or garage sale. You receive a fair return, remain anonymous, and have minimal intrusion into your daily routine.

Local online auction site benefits:

  • Staff is typically on your property for only 1 – 2 days to professionally photograph and describe items
  • Experts are contacted to determine the worth of potentially valuable items
  • Your sale is advertised at no cost to you through electronic media
  • Thousands of subscribers–including auction houses, galleries, and interior decorators–are directly notified of your sale
  • Averages of around 100,000 online visitors per month
  • Auctions usually last for one week, with bidders monitoring prices from the comfort of their homes
  • Your home address is only disclosed to winning bidders and only at the conclusion of the sale
  • Most winning bids are at or above fair market value and 99% of contracted items are sold
  • Winning bidders must pick up their purchases within a 3 – 4 hour window stated at the beginning of the sale, regardless of weather
  • You are paid within 7 days of the sale’s conclusion

With other forms of liquidation, you face a variety of potential negatives:

  • Garage sale – You do lots of work to set up and price items, haggle with strangers, pay to advertise, and hope for good weather.
  • Estate sale – You usually need to schedule it months in advance, then undergo several days of preparations so strangers can walk through your home over the course of 2 – 3 days and create a traffic jam in your neighborhood. You typically pay for print advertising and, as with garage sales, you are subject to weather conditions.
  • eBay – Even though eBay can be good for a few smaller items, you have to deal with calculating freight costs and shipping items to buyers.
  • Craigslist – This is appropriate for furniture and other larger items, but be ready for strangers to come to your home and haggle over price.
