Our Moving Sales work the same as our Estate Sales, including the two-option program and available additional services. The Traditional Moving Sale is faster, and the Extended Moving Sale is more thorough, but you don’t have to choose now to choose us. The Traditional Sale can be converted to an Extended Sale at any time throughout the service.
Either option also can be paired with any of our valuable additional services, making Empire Estate Sales the most flexible, comprehensive, and effective choice in personal property liquidation.
Traditional Moving Sale
We advertise your sale generously using both print and electronic advertising. We hand select local magazines and newspapers, and your sale will be listed on our website and social media pages with photography of selected items. Our extensive email list of interested buyers are notified of your sale, and we use many easy to read directional signs in the area.
A successful sale starts with a beautiful, well displayed home. We clean and polish selected items, and neatly arrange all items to be sold. We will research major items and price them with tags. We use various marketing signs in the house to help boost sales. We also take measures to prepare for the security of your items.
Our professional staff will be on hand to assist customers and provide basic security. We increase sales greatly by accepting credit cards, and offering delivery. After the sale we can remove unwanted items from the home and perform another basic cleaning.
Extended Moving Sale
A great option to maximize your results! It includes the Traditional Estate Sale, plus any major unsold items will move on to a three month consignment. They will be carefully packed and stored, and transported to and displayed at other estate sales or listed for sale online for 90 days.
Any of the following services may be added to either Moving Sale program to help enhance sales, prepare the home itself for sale, or provide added security. Additional services include, but are not limited to:
We will leave your home completely empty and broom-swept, and we'll do it quickly, efficiently, inexpensively. Using us for your clean out ensures the job will be done right, and you'll have fully insured employees working in your home at all times.
Heavy Duty Cleaning
Some homes will require more than a basic cleaning to make the house presentable for the sale. In these cases, we will remove any excess rubbish and thoroughly clean the floors, counter surfaces, sinks, and toilets. We will also clean the stove, refrigerator, and other appliances that are not a part of the sale. This is also an excellent option for after the sale to make the home “Realtor ready”.
This option can be performed either before or after the sale. Designed to attract both sale customers and potential buyers of the home itself, this option may be easier and cheaper than hiring a landscaping company. We will rake and/or mow the lawn, trim edges and hedges, and clear out pathways to enhance the home’s beauty.
Give your sales a huge boost! We will safely and professionally pack and deliver any items over $100 directly to your customers, within a 25 mile radius. Deliveries will be made no later than 3 days after the sale ends.
As with any merchandise sales environment, there is always a risk of minor theft. While our service comes with built in precautions, we offer the option of hiring an off duty police officer for added protection.
Fees apply for additional services.
