MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HERITAGE HOUSE SALES:
 

      Our large, well-trained staff can handle any size sale. We can handle the sale from start to finish with no worries for our clients.  Our clients just need to select the items that they wish to retain; we will then clean,  organize, display, price, advertise, and sell all that remains.  
     People are often amazed that we sell more than just sell furniture.  We sell all kinds of personal property including books, jewelry, appliances, kitchen utensils, linens,  potted plants, vehicles, tools, canned food, china, pottery, collectibles and antiques, clothing, etc.  
     At the end of the sale, our staff can dispose of what is left, provided that the client gives us sufficient time to do so.  We can also take items to the landfill, and have the home or business professionally cleaned, if desired.   In some cases, this service is done at no charge; in others, a fee is charged.  
     Heritage House Sales has the ability to continue to market fine items that did not sell at the sale through eBay and other venues, if our client so desires.  In some cases, Heritage House Sales can remove items from a client's home or business, and sell those items at one of our warehouses.  We can also sometimes combine clients' items to have enough merchandise for a complete sale.

 


HERITAGE HOUSE SALES PROVIDES YOU WITH EXTRA PROTECTION
 
AT NO COST TO YOU:

      Safety is of the utmost importance to us.  All of our worker's are covered by Workmen's Compensation.  Heritage House Sales carries a million dollar liability policy for each sale to provide our client with additional coverage should a customer be injured.  Our client is not charged extra for the insurance--it is included with our services.  For added protection, we are bonded. 
Heritage House is meticulous in training all staff to be alert for potential hazards. We utilize cones, caution tape, hazard stickers, etc. to alert our customers of things like stairs and a change of grade on the property.  We also limit the number of people who have access to the premises at a given time in order to make the environment safer.  For this reason, we are proud to say that we have had no customer claims to date.  
     Our large, well-trained staff can handle any size sale.  Although our fees are standard for our industry, we typically provide double the staffing that is standard for our trade.  Although this extra staffing is costly for Heritage House, we are willing to absorb this cost in order to protect our clients and customers by preventing injury and loss. Staff are typically utilized in the following way:  One or more of our workers maintains a "waiting line" to enter the premises, and oversees the parking of cars.  A worker also checks receipts as a customer leaves the premises.  Other workers are stationed throughout the home or business to assist customers with their purchases.  Cashiers take the customer's money, and provide them with a cash register receipt  If a customer needs help loading an item, we can assist. Delivery is also available.  Some workers are assigned to protect small, pocketable items. All workers are provided with a walkie-talkie for communication purposes.
Heritage House is proud to be a member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and is a member of O.T.O.R.A.

 


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE HERITAGE HOUSE SALES TO PREPARE FOR A SALE?


       We are frequently asked how long it takes us to prepare for a sale.  We have the ability to prepare most sales within a week.  However, in order to take full advantage of all the advertising potential, it is recommended that two or more weeks be allowed for us to prepare your sale, depending upon the size of the sale and the quality of the items.


 HOW MUCH DOES HERITAGE HOUSE SALES CHARGE FOR SERVICES?

       Heritage House is compensated for our services by a commission based upon the dollar amount sold at the sale.  Our commission varies depending upon the amount sold; the commission percentage gets lower as we sell more merchandise. This is a unique feature of our service; industry standard is to charge a flat percentage, regardless of the size of the sale.  We offer a break in our commission, if the size of the sale warrants the discount.  Want to know how this works?  Give us a call or schedule a  no-obligation, no-cost assessment.
