ESTATE SALES
When we entered the auction business almost 25 years ago, there were two methods used to liquidate household effects – Auction Houses and Estate Sales. Well, there are no more auction Houses to speak of and I was never a big fan of the traditional “Estate Sale”. table-chairsMost Estate Sales were glorified yard sales where the “host” priced out and tagged the entire contents of a home and advertised the sale – usually on a Saturday. At dawn, there was a long line that snaked up to the home and around 8:00 the home was opened up to a bull rush as live bidders ran from room to room trying to pick up the best pieces available. Around Noon, the host would discount the remaining items 10-20% and several more price reductions followed into the afternoon. At the end of the event, there were usually items which remained unsold and the owner usually had to donate them to charity.

chinaWe have chosen to take a different approach where we prepare an online catalog of digital pictures, host them on a platform for 7-10 days or longer where competitive bidding can occur. We still have a traditional preview and a predetermined pick up and removal date. Our system results in a lot less wear and tear on the property as we are only dealing with serious prospects at the preview and the winning bidders at pickup and the items are placed in a competitive bidding arena.

Testimonials

Bob Tyler-Chapter 7 Trustee (Retired)

When someone has the responsibility for turning property of any sort into as much cash as the market will bear, it’s pure folly not to engage the services of an experienced liquidator like Nick Arrington. Not only is it necessary to “know the territory” in which sale of the property should take place, the seller also needs to know who the prospective purchasers for the property are likely to be, the best way to reach them – internet, news media, direct mail, -- and what the probable sale price range is likely to be. During the twenty-five years or so that I used Mr. Arrington as my agent for the purpose of liquidating property in bankruptcy cases where I was Trustee, we successfully sold real estate, cars, machinery, furniture, computers, and more other stuff than I can remember. Always the professional, he had a knack for making people enjoy dealing with him, was always prepared, and made me look good. I can’t thank him enough.

A. Henry-Executor Rappahannock Co. Virginia

We can’t thank you enough for your services in liquidating the antique cars in the Sperryville, Va. Estate. The entire process from pickup to arranging delivery to the new owners was seamless. Your pre auction estimates met or exceeded the values on each vehicle. We never imagined the cars would end up in so many different states and outside of the United States. Thanks again.
