Before a sale, we bring in an experienced team to organize, clean, shine and polish every item in the sale. We will create a beautiful, comprehensive display of all items to be sold. All available tables, shelves and storage areas will be utilized and additional tables will be provided for display purposes.

For items of potential value that are not within our area of expertise, we may choose to engage an outside appraiser at our expense.

Disposal of Unsold Items & Cleaning
While we find that most clients prefer to go through items after a sale, we will gladly suggest names of charities that will pick up unsold items at your convenience. We will broom clean and also help you make arrangements for deep cleaning services if necessary.
