Most folks who call me for information regarding holding an estate sale have never been in the position of liquidating items quickly and are unsure of what questions to ask. Some have collected a list of great questions for us, but most know to ask only what is our commission rate.
You want to ask four important questions right off the top. What is your percentage rate? How many people will staff my sale? What fees do you have besides percentage? Are you insured? Most companies won't quote you a percentage without seeing your property first, but many can give you an idea of the range. You want to make sure you are getting all the information that is included in your percentage.
We have compiled a list of great questions potential customers have asked us. See our What to Ask page for a list of questions you can ask.
