Move in Comfort – Finding a Home for Items No Longer Needed

For some people who are considering downsizing, thinking about what they will do with the things they no longer want can be such a stumbling block that they put off the process all together. There are some who have started and get anxious as they discover there is MORE that they don’t want to keep than what they do want to keep. Let’s look at several available options.
Many have saved things they have loved for their children, thinking they’ll be delighted with the offerings only to find they’re not as thrilled as imagined. They may already have full homes, no time to consider or different tastes.
The most profitable way to dispose of household belongings is an estate sale. Many believe ”estate sales” only happen if a person has died, but today that’s not the case. It simply means: There is an entire household included in the sale. Professionals set up, price, advertise, provide security and run your sale. Typically, the sale takes place soon after a person moves out and before their home goes on the market.
It’s important for potential customers to know the reputation of the estate sales company they are considering, and to have questions ready to ask when interviewing a particular operation. Companies all take a percentage of the sales as their cost of service.
There are also auction companies that will remove items from homes and run the auction off premises. Potential customers should still inquire about the auction’s reputation and experience.
Worthy non-profit groups can also pick up the items no longer wanted, and they can help to disperse those belongings to people in the community who would benefit from them.
