what Is an Estate Sale?

 We are often asked this question in areas that do not have a local Estate and Moving Sales company located in their area. An estate and moving sale company is not an auction. It is a tag sale taking place in the home of the residents or a more convenient location. It is much like a garage or yard sale but inside the home. It will usually have a set time and dates and be advertised much like a garage sale. Rather than the owners conducting the sale, it may be conducted by an outside company that will clean, organize, set up and sell everything on a commission basis. You can find estate sales in your area by searching, and Whether you are downsizing, redecorating, cleaning, moving, probating a will or in financial need, an estate sale company may help you.
