Rubbish removal / Clean-out Service
If you need an estate sale, please contact us below. It is best to start planning an estate sale as far in advance as possible.
We offer buy-out/clean-out service when our clients need a quick turn over on select items or need a home cleared out in a short amount of time. The main reason for a buy-out is when there are select items of value that need to be liquidated in a short time frame, at that point Carolina Auctioneers & Estate Sale Services will evaluate the personal property and make an offer.
If an entire home needs to be emptied, we come in and assess the value of the property and figure out what we can offer. We then determine what disposing of the non sellable items would cost and either make an offer or give a quote for what we would charge to clean the property out. Some of the benefits of having a buy-out/clean-out are:
Quick sale of items
Same day payment on buy-out items (if applicable)
Empty a home in a short time frame
Hassle free removal of items left after a move
No headaches of auction fees and time
Donation Receipt and inventory (if applicable)
Final phase cleaning for a market ready home
Network of contractors for other needed services (realtors, painters, etc.)
We believe an estate sale is the best possible way to maximize the value of personal property. If there is not enough for an estate sale there are other ways to make as much money as possible, such as selling the items personally online or going through an auction house. The clients that usually take advantage of our buy-out/clean-out service usually need quick turnover on antiques or collectibles.

We help you understand what makes something valuable, antique, and rare to leave you with a good understanding of the market values.

Knowing current market value
Identifying antiques and reproductions
Properly distributing property among heirs
