We DO NOT load large items - please bring help!
Valuable items are not in home before sale day.
We appreciate your being considerate of neighbors property & not blocking driveways!
Not responsible for accidents.
How do I find the Address for the Estate Sale?
We post the address for each of our sales the day before the sale opens. It will be listed on our Home Page, on our Facebook page, Instagram, EstateSales.net or you can join our email list and we’ll send you an email with all the sales info including the address.
Do you Discount the Estate Sale as it progresses?
Yes we do. Most of the time the first day of the sale all the items in the house are full price. There will be a daily discount everyday thereafter. Please refer to our website for discount of the day.
How do I hold my spot in line?
With COVID -19 Social Distancing Guidelines in affect, we will only allow 10 people in the sale at a time. We will have placeholder system in effect. When you arrive at the sale you are welcome to put an item down at the end of the trail to hold your spot. You cannot come the night before, put a marker down and leave. You are welcome to wait in your car. Customers often enjoy doing this when it is raining or because of the early hour they arrive. Further clarifications: 1. Any small item will do as a line marker – a canvas bag, pack of gum, mug, etc. 2. You do not need to have a marker if you plan on physically standing in line. But please honor the markers already down.
I'm at the sale and I want to purchase an item that is too large to carry to the register, what do I do?
We use a “Pull Tag” system for large items. Most items that are too large to carry will have a price tag located on the item. If you intend to purchase that item please find an associate to mark sold on the item, then simply pull the price tag and bring it to the register. Pulling the price tag will mark the item as sold and no other guests will be able to purchase it. Please do not pull a tag if you do not intend to purchase the item.
Do you have a Bidding System?
Our bidding system is designed to give customers the chance to purchase higher priced items at a lower discount than that days price. For example if you come to one of our sales on the second day and see a sofa marked $500 (with the second day discount of 50% off making it $250) you could leave a bid for a higher price than the 1/2 off price. You would leave your bid price, name and phone number on a bid sheet at the check out table. This is a closed bidding system, so your offered price won’t be seen by other customers. We review all bids after we close each night. Winning bids are called back that day. We must physically speak with you on the phone to confirm that you are the winning bidder. If we cannot get ahold of you to confirm then we cannot accept your bid. Once we confirm with you that you have won a bid we will pull your item from the sale. You have until 11:00 am the next day to pay for your item. You do not have to remove the item by 11:00am but we do however need your payment.
A few additional notes about bids: 1. If you are leaving a bid then you need to be 100% committed to purchasing that item. If you are not 100% committed then please do not leave a bid. 2. If we do not receive payment for an item by the designated time and cannot communicate with the bidder we will put the item back out for sale. In this circumstance the bidder will be indefinitely removed from our bidding system. 3. On occasion we have a bidder call us back the next day and tell us they don’t want the item any more. At that point we’ve already marked the item sold and missed the chance to sell that item to other potential customers. If this happens you will be excluded from our bidding system indefinitely. Please do not leave a bid unless you are 100% committed to purchasing that item.
