The first step in beginning any downsizing or liquidation project is to have a consultation. Our team loves to meet with potential clients to explain our process and our passion. Read on to understand what our consultation appointments are like and how we can help to put your mind at ease during an often stressful time.
Step 1: Going Over the Basics
To begin the meeting, we meet with the potential clients to discuss how our process works. Our online auction system uses the best parts of several different liquidation options to create the best outcome for our sellers. We explain how we document all of the items, how we market the items to different groups of buyers, and how we end the auction making sure to get the best prices for each item. We can also give referrals for other industries like a cleaning service, painters, handymen, or real estate agents.
We also explain our normal timeline including when the auction would be setup, how long it runs, and when everything will sell and be picked up. Here is our typical auction timeline for a mid-sized estate project.
Step 2: Visual Inspection Items to be Sold
Step 3: Final Proposal and Contract
After seeing all of the items (or as many as possible), we end the meeting by getting contact information and sending a final proposal including possible timelines, commission and fees to be charged, and any special considerations for the project. This is delivered or emailed to the client within 1-2 business days.
If you or someone you know would like to schedule a consultation, we would love to meet and explain how we can help. Thanks!
