Consulting with homeowner, family or executors prior to sale:
The client and CT Quick Auctions will determine sale price on items. Often clients and us will agree on and idea as to what amount to price items. We try to honor that request and ask you for a lower price from which we can negotiate. CT Quick Auctions will try and get best price, but we do need room to negotiate. In an estate sale we have prices on all the items. Since, our fee is based on the total sale; it is to our advantage to sell your items at the highest possible price.

When CTQuickAuctions is conducted to sell an estate of personal property such as furniture, china, antiques, books, pictures, collectibles, vehicles, motor homes, boats, etc. We appraise at a fair market and value price of items to be sold. Each item is given a department or room number that it is in and priced.

Sorting and Organizing Merchandise:
We will organize the sale so that related items are together in the same area. Items are merchandised in an effort to create sales and salespeople are stationed throughout for sales effort and for security.

Advertising the sale:
CT Quick Auctions will advertise the sale in at one or two local newspapers. Notify by email, mail and telephone of scheduled estate sale. Provide and post signs.

Conducting the sale:
Sales are typically conducted Saturday & Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Days and times are flexible.

Post-sale Clean-up:
We will leave your property after the sale and all items are removed and the house is broom clean. Our service is often requested by real estate agents or clients because we prepare the house for sale. Agents also like estate sales because more people will see the house during the estate sale than any other time that the house is for sale. Often the house is sold during the estate sale. If an item does not sell we offer several options for your consideration. CT Quick Auctions can place remaining items on consignment at store location, some items maybe donated to agreed charity. We do very little without your knowledge and viewpoint.

Our fee is a percentage of the total sale. Percentage will vary depending on Quality, Quantity & Condition of items scheduled for sale. Percentage will be determined & agreed upon inspection of home by CTQuickAuctions and client. |  21 S. Chapel Street  |  Torrington, CT 06790  |  860-485-4904
