How do I know if there is enough to use your services?
Sometimes a phone call is all it takes. Generally we need to visit the location of your sale and discuss the best way to sell your items. Of course, there is no cost for this consultation.

Once we are on the job, your work is done! We take care of everything, so you don't have to worry about anything.
Do I need to have a house full of antiques to have an estate sale?
Not at all! While many people have collectibles and some vintage items, it is not necessary to have a large home filled with antiques. We can sell just about everything that is considered general household items. We have sold antique, contemporary and used furniture, clothing, jewelry, tools, appliances, garden equipment, plants, and automobiles.
We have found that some items sell for higher amounts using online sales tools such as eBay. We have an excellent reputation as an eBay Power Seller.
What happens to the stuff that doesnít sell?
With every sale, there will generally be a little bit left over. These items can be
donated to charity, retained by the owner or discarded at your discretion.
How does it work after I hire you?
Thereís no need for you to continue cleaning or disposing of any items. You wonít have to lift a finger for your sale.
Our team will empty cupboard, clear out closets and drawers and display the items for maximum exposure. We make sure that none of the important things you want to save like personal photos or papers get lost in the shuffle.
We organize and value your belongings. We schedule advertising, post signage, run the sale, and make arrangements for the items that donít sell.
How is Trunk
Full of Treasures paid?
We are paid a percentage of the sale proceeds. This is negotiated with you based upon the size of the estate and the amount of preparation involved. We carefully go over the contract with you to insure there is no confusion concerning our services.
We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for allowing us the opportunity to make your life easier.
Can you guarantee good results, since my estate is "very valuable"?
Our experience has proven that many times the 'value' of an estate is based upon sentimental rather than actual value. Our team has a combined 30+ years experience in estate sales, and includes a licensed antiques appraiser.
Our goal is to achieve the highest possible selling price for every item we sell, therefore "the more you make, the more we make." We continue to grow our business through referrals because our clients are pleased with the professionalism of our team, the sales we achieve and the small amount that remains at the end of the sale.
