Peachtree & Bennett Auctioneers and Estate Services is a 3rd generation estate sales services company serving Atlanta, Georgia, and all the east coast.
Why You Need Estate Liquidation Services
Using an auction house or estate services company simplifies the evaluation, dispersal, and liquidation of property involved in the probate process. All too often we see an exceptional collection sell for a fraction of its potential value because it was in the wrong place at the wrong time. By using a company with multiple show rooms like Peachtree & Bennett, estate items are available for an estate sale, auction consignment or outright purchase at multiple locations. We professionally evaluate all estate items to draw the highest price in the appropriate market. Also, we determine if your estate items are a better fit for auction, consignment, or outright purchase. Our number one goal is to get the highest dollar amount for your estate items.
Our estate sale and auction process is divided into two steps: before sale and after sale.
BEFORE SALE PROCESS:
Schedule Complimentary Assessment
One of our expert appraisers will review your estate items free of cost at your home, place of business, our showroom or via email at email@example.com.
Receive a proposal:
This occurs after we have finished our complimentary evaluation of the items. Along with the evaluation estimates, we map out the best plan for liquidation.
Sign a contract:
This is a standard agreement we have with all our sellers. In addition to agreeing to sell the items in one of our salesrooms, your home or business, it lists our terms and fees for services such as insurance, loss/damage liability, shipping, and illustration. In most cases, our commission covers all sales related costs such as photography, cataloging, online listings, advertising, handling, and transportation.
**The cost of shipping is usually included in our commission. We are happy to pack and transport the items to our gallery. The seller can also drop the items off or deliver them by a third party. By appointment only.
AFTER SALE PROCESS:
After the auction or estate sale, a final bill of sale is sent which lists the final bid/ selling price for each item.
For more information on selling please see our Seller’s page.
A DETAILED LIST OF OUR PROFESSIONAL ESTATE LIQUIDATION SERVICES
Consigning items can offer competitive commission rates for personal property. In most cases this includes packing, shipping and handling of items in addition to advertising, research, and cataloging the items.
Appraisals & Liquidations:
A full appraisal of all items, big or small, such as antiques, furniture, paintings, art, sliver, china, sculptures, lighting, rugs, household decorations, and accessories.
Broom Sweep/Clean Out:
After all the items are removed, a broom sweep leaves the premises in a clean and salable condition. This service simplifies many estate situations.
Here the items are purchased outright allowing the clients to receive immediate payment. This includes packing, handling, and trucking all items.
Estate Real Property:
Without proper marketing any property related to an estate or trust can sit for months. With proper marketing and the right touch, you can increase your odds of selling any property quickly.
