FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Once you contact Devlin Estate Sales, we will talk with you, get to know your situation and the type of estate sale you want. We can then setup a specific time to come out and meet you or your representative at the sale location.

Once on site, we can assess and discuss the feasibility of a sale. What this means is we will determine whether or not there are enough items in the residence and how well the items will sell. This will allow us to make a decision as to whether or not you should have an estate sale or if you should use alternate sources to liquidate the contents of the home.

Our consultation is free of charge. If we determine an estate sale is not the best fit for your items, we will recommend other alternatives and provide you with guidance on who to contact.

Yes! We can handle everything through email, faxing, and registered mail. It’s a very easy process! If you’re working with a local realtor or lawyer, we can go through them as well. Remember, we are a licensed, insured, and bonded company.

We ask that you or family members remove all items that you would like to keep prior to us coming out to assess the estate. This will allow us to conduct a thorough assessment of what would be included in the sale.
Also, we ask that you remove any personal photos and paperwork from the residence. Such as: family photos/albums, birth certificates, social security cards, drivers license, passports, military documents, bank statements, pay stubs, medical bills. If you can’t do it, we will dispose or set aside these items for you.

Any items staying in the house that you would like to keep should be moved (if able) and secured in a specified room/area and marked as not for sale.

Absolutely NOT!

This is the biggest mistake people make when preparing to conduct a sale. Items you consider as “junk” may be a diamond in the rough or a treasure to a collector. Let us take care of the separating and sorting. This is part of our service. The best thing to do is leave the house as-is.

Again, we cannot stress enough: DO NOT discard these items! 
Vintage postcards, magazines, and newspapers are highly sell-able items and should not be discarded. Cleaning supplies can also be sold at the sale.

While that is a common practice and charitable, these items are completely sell-able at the estate sale. Please refrain from discarding or donating these items prior to the sale.
We accept credit cards and cash.

No. We will bring in tables, display cases, and clothing racks to display the merchandise. We take care of it all.

We recommend listing the house before the sale. This is a great way to help sell the home. Hundreds of potential buyers will go through the home during the sale.

There is no designated time frame. However, to be efficient and thorough, we like to have at least two weeks.
