Thanks for letting me join....

I have a question about where to go to warn people about crooked Estate handlers? I feel this is one of the worse crimes ever to take advantage of people at the time of grief and think surely there is some blacklist somewhere?

thank you

@ Dianne - is this a new award? Wow! R We up for another then? that's great if it is!

@ Julie - yes I to have a sentance in my contract stating that all items must stay in sale, if removed for "any" reason, I am entitled to my stated % of said item - and you better believe I deduct it to!

I was looking for the letter someone sent me - about starting an estate sale biz? Can't find it here??

What's one of the most frustrating factors in conducting a liquidation?  When the client removes things or continues to remove items prior to the sale.  Each of us has our own uniqe way of handling this.  Let's discuss some ways we can better communicate with the client and at the same time be extended professional courtesy.  I'll go first:  I have a specially written paragraph in my contract that controls this particular issue, plus, I reinforce it in person with my client so everyone is upfront and clearly understands.  Anyone have ideas they would like to share with others who may have difficulty with this issue?
