 Prior to the sale, we consult with the family regarding their wishes for donating any unsold items. A tax deductible receipt will be provided for the remaining items that are donated.  

What about clean up after the estate sale?

  

Our goal is to "sell it to the everything” leaving the premises swept clean. If there is excessive trash, we can arrange to have it removed at a very reasonable cost to you. We do not dispose of hazardous materials, non-working appliances or non-running automobiles.

Can I be there the day of the sale?

What if I want to get involved in pricing?

  

Part of the benefit of hiring Affordable Estate Sales, Inc. is so that we can price your items. We have conducted sales and our pricing philosophy is based on fair and reasonable pricing. The goal is to lighten your load and provide you the highest profit for your valuables.
