The best piece of advice we can give you is to please, don’t throw anything away.  Let us decide what is trash or treasure.  You just never know.

Don’t pre-sell items before the sale.  There are people that will try to talk their way in to buy early, choosing the best but wanting to pay very little.

Make sure there is a contract in place.  Be sure it states charges, when the sale is to be held and when you can expect payment.

Ask questions of the liquidator, such as what do they charge and what is and is not included in this fee; do they carry liability insurance; do they have a business license; are their workers insured?  Remember, they are there to help you – don’t let them intimidate you into something you don’t feel comfortable doing.

Relax.  You’ll be amazed how good you feel when it’s all over.
