Hiring an estate sale professional is not an easy task. In an unregulated industry such as estate sales, choosing the right company to entrust with your family’s possessions can be a daunting task. Here are some tips that will help you on your journey of hiring the best estate sale company.
You want to hire a company that’s experienced with hundreds of estate sales under their belt.
Experience means they have a large following of shoppers that frequent their sales, they properly market their upcoming sales, and they have references you can depend on.
Insured Estate Sale Professional
You wouldn’t hire a contractor that’s not insured to work in your home, why would you settle for anything less with an estate sale company? A liquidation professional should be insured to protect you and your home from any unforeseen liabilities during the sale.
Must-Have a Written Contract
Any business that’s willing to make promises they tend to keep, should be confident enough to put it in writing.
There is no oversight in the estate sale industry, or regulations requiring anyone to use an estate sale contract, but it must be required by you prior to hiring an estate sale professional.
If a company is not willing to provide you with a written contract, it’s best to walk away and hire someone else.
