Our Services

Estate/Moving Sales Conducted

Take what you want and leave the rest to us. Sheridan Estate Sales II handles every phase of your in-home sale, from staging to pricing to advertising to hosting a well attended sales event.    Contact us today  at (224) 763-4444 for a free consultation.

Staging

Sheridan creates a boutique style shopping experience in your home.  Each room is staged in a professional manner designed to showcase your property.  We bring in tables, shelving units, clothing racks, jewelry cases, and other display items.  We go the extra step to linen our tables and use pricing stickers giving the sale that upscale look.  Your furniture remains clutter free and showroom ready. Our staging process is designed to significantly enhance sales results.

Pricing

Sheridan prices almost every item in each and every sale.  We price thousands of items.  Pricing and selling that quantity of merchandise keeps us current with the market as well as prevailing trends. For those few items that require extra expertise, we have independent appraisers and specialists on call.  In cases where we find highly unique items we have a relationship with a national auction house in order to yield maximum proceeds that you can only get from a wider audience.

Advertising

Our extensive advertising campaign includes internet estate sale sites, our website, our Facebook page, Instagram, Google Plus, our private customer email list, and Craigslist.  We also maintain a customer database of specialty items our customers are interested in.  On sale days our bright red and white  directional street signs are strategically placed and draw a lot of local traffic as well.

Hosting a Well-Attended Sale

We conduct three day estate sales on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

We have a state of the art register system that, in addition to cash, accepts credit/debit cards and mobile pay for any amount. This system includes a chip reader to ensure the protection of our company, as well as our customers.  All sales are tracked electronically.

We staff each sale appropriately, ensuring excellent coverage for sales, security, and safety.  All of our employees are trained and empowered to negotiate sales.  There is no need for a customer to be frustrated waiting to see only one person for pricing, negotiating, or questions.  Our practices maximize sales while emptying out the house.

The moving of all large purchases is done under direct supervision of a staff member to ensure it is done safely, protecting your most valuable asset, the house itself.

Payment

Your sale proceeds are calculated and put into a separate escrow account so they are not commingled with our operating funds.  A check, written off the escrow account, is mailed directly to you within one week of the sale.

 

 

Donations and Clean Out

Sheridan conducts three day sales which are designed to maximize the sale of your personal property.  At the end of the sales event, should you still have the need for this service, we have a few options for you.  We work with independent professional clean out services as well as charities.
