Estate Auction FAQ’s

I am just moving, should I have an estate sale?

Believe it or not, most estate sales are moving sales. It is far more common to have people move out of state, downsize to a smaller home, or move into an assisted living center.

I am thinking of doing the sale myself, why should I hire someone:

Very simply, it is about experience. Due to our large customer base, Lewis Auctions will be able to partner our vast mailing database with your estate to provide the best possible value for your items.

When do I get the proceeds for the sale?

We usually cut you a check for the proceeds within a few days after the end of the sale or sooner if necessary.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept cash, checks, credit, and debit cards. In some sales, almost half our sales are credit/debit cards and we are one of a very few companies that accept them.

What happens if there is bad weather?

Unlike a garage sale that can be rained out, an estate sale is inside and snow, rain or wind rarely will affect you.

How will you market my estate?

We will market your estate in many different ways, but you will have the choice as to what level of advertising you want to use. We have an entire marketing plan that will go over with you.
