When you’re moving, liquidating your assets, or selling your property, it’s not just you — it’s you and all your junk. There are generally three ways to deal with all the items you don’t want anymore — you can bring them with you and leave them in indefinite storage, throw them away, or sell them for profit.
One of these options is better than the others.
However, holding an estate sale to get rid of your junk is easier said than done. There are all kinds of tasks that go into hosting a quality estate sale, and these are all things that take up your precious time and energy. An estate sale company like Pengo Estate Sales can make things easier. Here are just a few of the ways that we can make estate sales a breeze, when they would otherwise be a total pain.
We Appraise and Research Every Item
We can work with you to deduce the true value of your belongings. Of course, we will respect your desires and let you set prices when you have something firm in mind, but if you’re unsure of what price tag to slap on your stuff, we’ll save you the headache of doing all the research yourself — or just guessing and losing money because of it.
This, alone, is something that can take countless hours of your time. Not only that, but we also have the proper tools for appraisals — we know how to research the items being sold, and which resources will provide reliable information in this regard. No matter how you look at it, it’s a huge time-saver!
We’ll Take Care Of Your Marketing
Marketing is one of the biggest snags that a lot of people run into when they try to run their own estate sales. Unless they’re paying another company to advertise for them, a lot of normal homeowners don’t have much of a social media outreach that extends past their close friends and family.
Street signs aren’t the only way to advertise! If you choose Pengo Estate Sales as your estate sale company, we’ll not only make signs, but we’ll also advertise through social media outlets, and list your sale on our own website, which is frequently checked by people in East Kansas and West Missouri to find hot sales.
We Manage the Entire Sale
Once the sale actually begins, you don’t have to do anything except for sit back and relax — that is, if you’ve put your estate sale into the hands of professionals. We’ll organize your items, arranging them in a way that makes them more likely to sell, and take payments from customers. We will display your information if you’re selling your home, and we’ll have personnel on-site to make sure that items aren’t stolen. This is a lot more work than one person can handle!
We Take Care of the Aftermath
When an estate sale ends, it’s not just a matter of picking up street signs. Many clients will need to make special arrangements to transport their goods off-site, the space will need to be cleaned, the marketing materials will need to be removed or updated, and receipts and invoices will need to be sent out. It’s easy to get lost in this logistical mess if you’re doing everything yourself.
