When people have to downsize after being in their homes for decades there is often an abundance of items that need to be cleared out.
When a loved one passes on and you are in charge of clearing their estate there are a lot of decisions to be made.
One of the ways the clearing of non-smoking homes in good condition can be done is to have a Maxsold Auction.
We will come and ascertain if it is a good fit to have an auction, as in cost effective. If you have been left a lot of jewelry or a coin collection or a ton of collectibles then those items could fetch a lot of money.
If you have teak furniture or a lot of mid-century modern or even antiques, those do well in auction.
If your furnishings are from the last 20 years or if you have a lot of unopened items those could also do well as does original artwork.
The auctions are seen by thousands of people in Ontario who are seeking out certain items.
Everything starts at 0 and there are some items which do not get sold but for the most part at least 96% of your items are sold.
You might find that a table sells for $10 but a spy camera from the 1970’s sells for $250. Final price is determined by the market and if there are competing buyers.
We like to say that everything goes to good homes or are bought by resellers who keep goods out of the landfill.
It does cost more to have an auction then for us to pack it all up and donate it.
However, in many cases it is worth it and the auction proceeds cover most or all of the expenses of running it (and sometimes pay for all our services).
We service Stoney Creek, Dundas, Binbrook, Ancaster, Hamilton, Waterdown, Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Georgetown, Grimsby, Beamsville and Caledonia for the auctions. All are in Ontario, Canada.
