Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if an estate sale is right for my situation?


Whether you are handing the estate of a loved one, moving across the country or down just across town, you may have the need to liquidate some items. The Pickin Chicks will come to your home for a free consulation and help you decide if a sale is the ideal solution for you. Don't worry, we also have the option to sell your items on consignment.




What do I need to do to prepare for an estate sale?


When you have made the decision to have an estate sale, we often tell people to first remove all personal items they plan on keeping. Dispose of any items that are stained, broken or not in working order. Also, if there is an excess of garbage we recommend rening a dumpster prior to our arrival. If you are not able to remove the garbage, we can assist for an additional fee. The Pickin Chicks will handle it from there. We take care to make sure all of your items are clean, staged and looking their best for a sale. We treat your home as we would treat our own.
