Fringe Estate Sales

We will conduct your estate sale under three main objectives:

  • To maximize profit
  • To make a positive difference in the world

Let us do the work for you

Planning an estate sale can be challenging financially, physically and emotionally. Whether it's letting go of a loved one, moving to a new home or some other special event in your life, we can help make your transition go smoothly by expertly organizing your sale to help you prosper while fulfilling our mission to make a difference in our world.

Why we offer Estate and Household Sales

Our team has over 50 years of combined resale experience. By offering this service, we share our skills and success in resale to support people during their time of need or change. We are also dedicated to our mission of helping animals and this is an innovative, on-going fundraiser to benefit the animals and organizations in need. 

About our sales

How our Estate Sales work

A free consultation is provided at the property where the estate sale will be held. We will conduct a walk through with you to assess the amount of inventory and overall challenge of the sale. We will at that time suggest sale dates based on the time needed to properly organize and advertise your sale. After the consultation, a service contract is drawn up detailing the scope of our services specific to your sale and the agreed upon commission rate. 

We care about the Earth

We believe in recycling through resale. We love re-homing items and through experience, we have learned that what may appear to have no resale value to one may be very desirable to another. After all, one man's trash is another man's treasure! We also participate in numerous recycling programs to help keep items of of landfills and have many outlets for items that are truly unsellable. 

We measure our success by your success

We are detail orientated and give our full attention to the success of your sale. Upon completing the free consultation and service contract, expect it to take several weeks for us to prepare for your sale to be held. Your sale will be held for the appropriate length of time needed for all items to have a fair chance to find a home.

Tax deduction benefit

By working with us, you have the option to donate any goods remaining after your sale to Fringe Benefits Thrift Store.  Your donation is tax deductible and the items will be transported by our staff as part of our service to you. You will also receive a discounted commission rate for choosing this option.

It’s simple, gratifying and connects you and your loved ones now and always to a worthy cause.

Do I need to be there during the sale?

The time it takes to have a sale depends on the size and overall challenge of the sale. Organizing your sale takes several steps. First, we have to schedule your free consultation which will be held on-site where the sale is to be held. Then, we must enter the service contract agreement. These two steps take an average of one week. Next, we must prepare to have your sale by cleaning, sorting, pricing, displaying and advertising - this takes a minimum of 3 weeks. We will give you a more precise time frame upon your free consultation.

Will you clean before and after the sale?

Will you clean before and after the sale?

Within reason, we will clean before and after the sale. We have a waste removal clause in our service contract agreement and will clear away enough debris for a sale to be held. We are not responsible for paperwork, food or toiletry items, or hazardous waste materials that require special disposal (such as florescent bulbs, tires, harmful chemicals, etc). Upon completion of the sale, we will leave the property in an orderly fashion so that it is ready for sale or otherwise.

How do I prepare for the sale?

The best thing you can do to prepare for the sale is to remove all personal property (family photos, documents, etc.) or contain it an area that can be sectioned off from the public during the sale. You can also rid the property of obvious waste. We ask that you leave the rest of the sorting to us. As experts in the field of resale, we will determine what is sellable and what is not.

Will you conduct a final walk through before the sale is to be held?
