Attending a Sale


The List

We will hand out entrance numbers at 8:00 am. Sales typically start at 9:00 am unless otherwise posted.

Entrance numbers are given out on Fridays only or if a one day sale, they will be given out for that day too.

Reason for numbers:

We always want to make sure that people are entering the home in a safe and polite manner. There are occasions when more than one party may be interested in the same item. We want to insure that things are fair for all the attendees.

It is recommended that the first person who arrives at the sale start a list, as others arrive- it will be their/your responsibility to find who has the list and sign in. Typically it will be the person closest to the driveway. We will hand out numbers according to the list that is provided to us by the attendees or on a first come first serve basis

Depending on the size and layout of the house will determining how many people are let in at sale opening. We try to get in as many as possible and to get the remainder (if any) in asap once the others are absorbed into the house.

We cannot take responsibility or sides in case of a dispute. Having attending sales ourselves for many years we have concluded that this will be easier for all parties attending the sale.


Methods of Payment

We accept Cash, Local Checks and Credit cards with a minimum purchase of $100.00


Pick up/Delivery of Large Items

We prefer that all large items are picked up by the end of the sale. We will work with you to set another time for pickup if that window does not work for you. Each situation is different as related to time line dates for closings and cleanouts. Also our access to homes after the sale sometimes can be limited.

Some of the staff working for us do offer deliveries on a limited basis for a nominal fee. Always be sure to ask if this is a possibility.
