Whether you are settling an estate, moving into a smaller home, or just wanting to simplify your lifestyle, the liquidation of household items can be both frustrating and time-consuming. RePurpose Estate Services provides clients with a worry-free and quick solution to this and other difficult situations. Take a look at our services below and see which ones might be right for you.
We recommend holding an Estate Sale if the value and volume of the contents are great enough to warrant one. We handle all aspects of the estate sale, including the merchandising, pricing, and advertising. We handle the bookkeeping, maintain the safety and security of the merchandise, and our friendly staff provides great customer service.
We are insured to protect the interests of our clients, and have a reputation for running fair and efficient sales. Our prices reflect today’s market with the focus on generating sales and motivating buyers. Our experience in the antique and vintage marketplace, plus our research of market value on specific and high-demand pieces allows us to reach our goal for an estate sale – to empty the house while generating proceeds for the client.
We encourage you to take the first step, and have a member of our team conduct a complimentary estate content analysis, at no charge. Please visit the Contact page for further information.
Estate Buy Outs
In the case where an estate sale isn’t possible or preferred, we are happy to make an offer to directly purchase the estate’s contents. We also offer the option to both purchase items of interest and clean out the rest of the contents for you, should you need. In such cases, we proceed by:
First, our team will assess the contents of the house during the free on-site estate content analysis. The analysis will identify all of the items with resale potential, and determine the purchase value of all items of interest.
Second, our team will assess the labor cost of content removal. This cost is dependent on several factors, including the volume of items to be removed, cost of an on-site dumpster (if necessary), the time needed to complete the job, and the size of the crew necessary to remove the items (based on the size, weight, and location of the items).
Third, the financials are based on how the two numbers above balance out.
- If the value of the contents exceeds the cost of removal, we will make a cash purchase for the value, less the cost of removal
- If cost of removal exceeds the value of the contents, we will charge a service fee for the cost of removal, less the credit we can apply for the value of the contents.
- If the value of the contents is equal to the cost of removal, we will offer to “trade out” — wherein no money changes hands on either side.
If a complete clean-out is not required, we are always happy to tender cash for items of interest, and do not assess labor costs for packing and removing items we purchase if we are not doing a complete clean-out. Please visit the Contact page for further information.
Household Clean Outs
If you have a house that needs to be emptied, but is filled mostly with debris and/or items that don’t hold resale potential, we can provide a complete clean-out service so you can prepare the house for sale or rent. This is a fee-based service, and we will provide a free estimate in order to give you a quote.
Household clean outs include:
- Emptying every room from attic to basement, plus the garage, storage sheds, porches, etc.
- Debris removal, including foodstuffs, accumulated papers, wood & building materials, etc.*
- Scheduling the arrival and removal of a dumpster if necessary.
- Appliance removal
- Vacuuming all carpets, sweeping all floors (leaving the house in “broom-clean” condition)
- Carpet pull-up and disposal
- Kitchen and bathroom cleaning
- Wiping down floors and walls
