Whether you need a market estimate to have an idea of what to expect when selling, sworn valuation for insurance or legal matters, or you require a specialist to understand the true worth of your collections, we will make sure we have the right person for the job so that the true value of your property is uncovered.
Make it happen
Once you know what you’ve got and what it’s worth, it’s time to decide what to do with it. This can be one of the hardest steps, as each item can evoke memories, slowing down the process. Working out what each family member or loved one would like to keep, while keeping things fair and everyone happy, can be even harder. We’ve come up with a unique solution to make this as easy and painless as possible. It’s called CanSolver, an online photo inventory that allows secure access to your loved ones, wherever they are, to make ranked expressions of interest on each item. You can select rules, see items that multiple people want, and decide what you’d like to keep for yourself with the minimum of hassle.
Once the destinations of your items have been decided, we take care of the rest. We provide packing materials and experienced staff to make sure every item is handled appropriately and with care. We also pack and track items by box, so you know what is where, making unpacking at the other end a breeze.
Moving everything is one of the biggest costs involved with this process, so we produce a project management plan to minimise haulage and maximise efficiency, no matter where everything is headed. This reduces time, fuss, and cost, giving you the best outcome possible.
Where possible we avoid storage, moving your items directly to their final destination directly from the property whenever we can. When this isn’t practical, we will source the best option for you in terms of location, access, and cost.
We have the infrastructure and expertise to find the best buyer for each of your items, maximising the return to you. While others might use a single selling avenue, we utilise a range of sales options, including multiple physical auction houses, online market places, and direct sales to dealers and collectors. There are a wide range of factors that go into selling beyond the sale price, including lot fees, commissions, and storage costs. We take them all into account when choosing where to sell to make sure you get the best result possible.
Just because something isn’t saleable doesn’t mean it can’t find new value in a new home. We work with a wide variety of charities to ensure that nothing useful is discarded and waste is minimised. This can not only save money, but also gives a new lease of life to long treasured items that would otherwise be discarded.
