Auctions online for estates and cleanouts
After the sorting, it's time to let go!
You’ve gone through the process of deciding whether to keep, donate, sell or throw away. Now how do you sell all that stuff without the hassle required with a Garage Sale or Craigslist?
Auctions are a natural extension of our clean-out projects. They are also great solutions for clients who don't want to host an estate sale on site or who need to sell a lot of stuff within a few weeks. We use 2 platforms, each offers different advantages.
Online Auctions may be used for just about anything except food and weapons. Even all those partial bottles of cleaning supplies!
Fun fact: Things you can't give away are often purchased in an auction!
We can consult on your best options for disposing of unwanted items including many selling strategies, donation options and how to efficiently just give away your things.

" Dear Joan: I have heard from our Realtor what a wonderful job you and your crew did for the auction of my brother’s personal items. Thank you so much, especially under these extraordinary circumstances.
I will be sending a check today.

How Online Auctions with JMPO work:
We usually partner with MaxSold Online Auctions to create a descriptive photo catalog that is hosted online. 98% of items sell in most auctions! Auction proceeds can often cover the entire cost of sorting and clearing out the house, although not guaranteed.
Are you concerned about making money from the clear out or about minimizing the costs of clearing out? Working with JMPO is a great way to cover the costs associated with sorting, assessing and disposing of the contents of a home. In some cases, the estate will come out on the positive side after an auction. It all depends on the amount and market value of the items being sold.
Online Auctions ≠ estate sales
Online Auctions are best suited for whole house or estate clear outs. JMPO charges an hourly rate for services ($2700 generally) and MaxSold takes 30% of sales. We have other auction platform options too.
JMPO will handle the setup and pickup:
Additional support is available for organizing and separating items to prepare for an auction (pre-sorting, unpacking of any boxed or stored items).
