ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who needs an estate sale?
Anyone downsizing, relocating, moving, or liquidating loved one’s household.  Antiques and collectibles are not necessary.  Everyday household items make for a great sale.
How can C & J Estate Sales help?
We offer experience in liquidating the contents of estates including antiques and collectibles, contemporary and used furniture, clothing, artwork, jewelry, toys, tools, appliances, garden equipment and much more.
What can I expect?
We provide all of the resources needed to sort, organize, display, research, price, advertise and sell the contents of the estate. We work with you to provide a secure and profitable sale. Typically we start working in the home 10-14 days prior to the actual sale event, depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. We bring in tables, displays and any additional items needed for set up. We provide exceptional attention to detail. We offer experience and creative solutions for all of our clients.
How far in advance should I book an estate sale?
We recommend at least 2-3 weeks advance notice but certain parts of the year can be busy and it may be 1-2 months before a booking can be done.
What kind of items do we sell?
Everything!  Furniture, clothing, tools, appliances, jewelry, artwork, antiques, collectibles, garden equipment and almost any household item are priced. Antiques and Collectibles are evaluated and priced accordingly. Do not throw anything away prior to our evaluation - remember, one man's junk is another man's treasure.
Do you sell everything?
Based on our past performance, we consistently sell around 70% of the household contents.
When is a good time to have an estate sale?
Our customers attend estate sales all year, so any month is a great time for a sale! The best days for sales are Friday through Sunday. Please keep in mind that winter sales are also very successful as there are fewer sales and customers like to shop year round!
What are the fees for an estate sale?
C & J Estate Sales charges 30% to 40% commission of the gross sales or a guaranteed minimum coming from sale proceeds.  We are happy to assess your contents at no charge and discuss possible options.
