Qualities To Look For When Hiring an Estate Liquidation Professional
Trust plays a big part when hiring any professional especially when looking to hire an estate liquidator to organize and manage an estate sale for you and your family. Here are a few things to look for when hiring an estate liquidation professional in an industry that’s currently unregulated by any governing body.
These small indications are signs of professionalism and will help you make the right decision.
Licensed & Insured
A reputable estate liquidator holds the proper business licenses in the area they serve along with liability insurance to protect you and your family from any possible liabilities during the estate sale preparation and sale dates.
How long have they been doing this? You don’t want to trust your estate to a new comer for many reasons. An experienced estate liquidation professional has held many sales and has a large following of buyers that frequent their estate sales on a regular basis. This means your items will have a higher chance of selling at the fair market value.
Accountable and Dependable
References are great, the company you choose should be able to easily produce a few past references that can share their experience with you. I would shy away from a company that’s not willing to produce past references. In an unregulated industry, experience, reputation, and longevity is extremely important.
Another good indication of a great estate liquidation professional is they’re only willing to conduct an estate sale with you after they’ve performed an on-site evaluation and have everything documented in a legal contract.
A binding contract between all parties will make the process transparent and seamless. You would never want to agree to hold an estate sale with a company based on a hand shake. A lot is at stake and it’s not worth the risks involved.
