Hire a kid - teenager in your neighborhood - very unlikely he would get hurt and for a few bucks, most young guys are happy to help.

Even if someone were to get injured your home owners would cover it anyway - think your being to cautious dear! :)

I've been storing a dresser in my detached garage. I want to bring it inside and upstairs, but it's too heavy for me to jostle around. I have no one to help me and hiring a mover would cost more that the dresser is worth. If I have a neighbor or relative help and they get hurt, I would be liable. Any suggestions?

LOL Charles at these great reviews and creative signs!! :)

Just one comment re: Brenda's Question Estate Sale vs Auction.

I think both have their advantages and disadvantages. That being said. If you sell off all the "high end" items from an estate sale, you will not bring in the high dollar collector's and dealers.

In my case, I feel that when we have more "high end" items, I do get the price I'm asking, or close to it, and once the person is there they look around and tend to buy much more stuff.

On the other hand, I've been to many auctions where a higher end item may go "out of this world" in price, or it may bring a very low dollar amount - seems more of a "crap shoot". Now, I'm sure that's not true for all sales/auctions. Just wanted to add my two cents! :)

It seems to me today the criticizers are the ones to speak up these days and publicly.....we have so many nice wonderful customers say nice things to us at our sales, but they are not posting publicly, just the ones with "issues" or the ones who did not get their price, or someone who doesn't "get" the business at all (I sometimes invite the ones who complain in person how we are running a sale to come and work a couple of sales and see how hard it is).......so you have to try to remember all the good ones......this is hard for me at times.  congrats Charles on a good job done. In the end, if We know how much effort we put into it and integrity, no one can take that away, it's just hard when someone is slamming your good name on a public forum.  somehow there should be a way to delete these things, but in most cases there are not.  The one lady who posted something nasty on my Facebook biz page, well the good thing about that was I could delete it, and that shows just how stupid she was. Of course, she didn't buy anything and just complained about everything, including our security measures....probably a thief who could not steal at this particular sale she was complaining about.

I agree w/ Charlene - That lady was a real "PITA" in my book!

Just who does she imagine herself to be I wonder, and has she ever tried to run a HUGE estate sale before? I think Not!

Charles - I'm sure you did a fantastic job! and it shows by the comments made by normal, appreciative folks! WTG!

Comment by Timesavers Estate Sales on March 1, 2013 at 1:35pm

Charles, you are so right in trying to let those negative people just run right off our back, but it can be difficult.  You know from all the posts from "Ann" she is a crabby, unhappy person.  And probably jealousy plays in there somehow.  She has no idea what it took to liquidate that estate and that your responsibility is to the estate and by doing it in whatever way you felt was best to gain the most for the famile/heirs/estate, etc, you did your job well. Pat yourself on the back and say a prayer for Ann, because she sounds very unhappy (and not very busy with her "business" if she has all this time to keep responding and criticizing :)
