Some of the most frequently asked questions we get from our sellers include:
What does it cost for an initial evaluation of my items for sale?
There is no cost for the initial evaluation. At this initial evaluation,
we can suggest solutions that are tailored to your needs.
How far in advance should I contact you?
The sooner the better! Typically, we will book appointments anywhere from
3 to 8 weeks in advance of the liquidation. All dates will be reserved
upon the acceptance of a signed contract.
How long is the estate sale process?
The estate sale process takes approximately seven (7) days on average
and is dependent on the size of the estate. Typically, we need approximately
four (4) days to set up for the sale and an additional three (3) days
to conduct the actual sale.
Where will my sale be advertised?
Your sale will be advertised on our website, mailing list, estatesales.net,
and other websites as appropriate. We also post signs at the site of the
sale and throughout the neighborhood.
Who will price the items that I am selling?
Your items will be priced by our experienced staff, whom are familiar
with the fair market value of most items. However, if there is an area
outside of our expertise, we are happy to contact an expert in that field.
How much commission does Comprehensive Estate Liquidations, LLC make?
We take a percentage of the gross sales from the estate sale. Our commission
includes, advertising, staffing, and credit card processing fees.
How soon will I be paid after my estate sale ends?
Our clients are paid within seven (7) business days following the last
day of the estate sale.
Are you insured & bonded?
At Comprehensive Estate Liquidations, we are fully compliant with all state
business regulations. You can take comfort in hiring us with the knowledge
that we are fully insured, and bonded against theft.
Will there be security at my estate sale?
Depending on the scope of the sale, we can arrange for off-duty or retired
police officers to provide security at your estate sale. With a law enforcement
background, we are highly aware of protecting our clients and their security
needs. During the sale, we limit the number of customers in the home at
one time and meticulously check receipts as each customer exits the sale.
What happens to items that don’t sell?
If a valuable item does not sell at the estate sale, we will facilitate
its sale through auction or consignment. If the value of the item does
not justify this, we will arrange a donation to a charity of your choice.
Do I have to clean up after the sale?
No, you do not have to clean up after the sale. We will remove any trash
generated by the estate sale and leave the property broom clean.
