FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)
Chicago Estate Liquidation - Estate & Moving Sales Chicago IL

We have listed a few of the most common FAQ's we have received regarding Chicago area estate liquidation sales and estate sale services.

 

Q: WHAT IS AN ESTATE SALE?

A: An estate sale is the liquidation of a home's entire contents. The reasons vary and are usually of a personal nature. When due to the illness or passing of a loved one, long term care or hospitalization can be very expensive; in some cases an estate sale may be necessary as a means to help pay for these costs. In the broader sense, estate sale liquidation services are used by individuals who are moving or relocating, empty nesters who are downsizing, or for those facing the difficulty of divorce or foreclosure.

  Typically in Chicago, estate sales will be conducted over a two or three day period depending on the size and contents.

 

Q: HOW CAN I GET THE MOST FOR MY ITEMS?

A: First and foremost, if you are considering an estate sale liquidation we strongly encourage you to NOT throw anything out prior to meeting with us. Items of unknown value are frequently overlooked as worthless when in fact they can command a surprising return for you. Through expert care and knowledge, we value your belongings to ensure the maximum return is obtained.

 

Q: WHY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL?

A: Holding your own estate sale involves a tremendous amount of preparation; far more than people realize. It demands a great deal of focus, time, organization and research. Even then, the process is peppered with pitfalls when trying it on your own. Commonly, your items of value slip past you to those who do know their value. Additionally, there are multiple traps to navigate which these combined conditions create, especially during a stressful time with emotions high and energy low. In the end, despite all your hard work and time, you can have very little to show for your efforts. Hiring A Step Beyond (ASB) circumvents these issues. We do all the work for you so you can go about your life. All you have to do is go to is take your profits to the bank!!!

 

Q: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ESTATE SALE & GARAGE SALE?

A: In a garage sale, the owner rids themself of select unwanted items. These items range from children’s cast off toys and clothing to miscellaneous household odds 'n ends. The sale is contained outside in the garage or driveway and is run by the owner.

Estate sales, on the other hand, are the sale of the entire contents of one's home. Also, the sale is conducted within the Client's home. In many ways estate sales are representative of someone’s life; the personal lifelong possessions and collections of a families, parents and grandparents. They should be conducted by experienced full-time professionals contracted by the family or their executors. Specialized knowledge & experience are key in estate sales.
