Sweet & Harding
Sweet and Harding offer a first class estate sale and household liquidation service in Buffalo NY, and all of Western New York.
We are aware that there are many companies you can choose from to run your sale, this is why we always go the extra mile to make sure you receive the very best service when you choose Sweet and Harding for your sale.
Our service covers every aspect of estate sales, from setup, to sorting, to cleaning, to display, to running the sale, and cleaning up after the sale so that you don't have a mess to deal with.
We are happy to work with your realtor, ensuring that everything is left as it needs to be if the property is to be sold, and we are used to working within tight deadlines so that everything can be ready for closing following the sale of your property.
What we do
Our goal is to sell the contents of your home with the minimum amount of stress and worry for you, and to make the whole experience a pleasant one for you.
Sweet & Harding is owned and operated by Heidi Sweet and Ian Harding. We have a great team who work with us, helping us to provide the excellent service that we are famous for.
When you are ready to begin the liquidation process simply call us. We will come and do a walk through of the property. Once we have taken a look, we can discuss what the best approach for a sale would be. There is no charge for our initial meeting and walk through.
We will prepare your property and contents ready for a sale. This involves cleaning, sorting, pricing and display of your items. We thoroughly research your items to ensure the best price, whether it be antique furniture, fine art, jewelry, toys, textiles, sports memorabilia or whatever.
We deal with all necessary advertising, including placing ads in newspapers, printing flyers, and advertising on the internet. We use photographs, and often video, to show potential customers what you have for sale.
Our aim is to get as many buyers to a sale as possible - the more people we get through the door, the more we will sell.
Don't throw anything away!
Please consult us before you discard anything. Items that you feel are worthless could well be exactly what someone else has been searching for.
It is amazing what people will buy. We can sell - post cards, matches, manuals, unopened food, cleaning supplies, clothing, linens, towels, clothing, sheets, glass etc.
These small items can add considerably to the success of your sale.
The next step
You really don't have to do anything in the home, that's what we are here for - setting up, sorting, going through, eliminating non salable items, pricing, controlling customers, and selling everything.
Our role doesn't end there. Once the sale is over, we can arrange for the removal of any unsold items. We can arrange for donations to charitable organizations. We can dispose of any and all waste. The property is left clean and as empty as you need it to be.
Talk to your families. If this is an estate involving the death of a loved one, just consulting with your families before doing anything may save a lot of heartache and ill feeling.
If there is a problem with division of personal items, let us price everything first, let the family come in before the sale to the public and have everyone buy the items that they want. The money will go back to the estate so everything can be divided equally. This usually stops problems before they occur.
Our job is to make this process as stress free as possible for you. Once you have made the decision to use our service your work is done, simply leave the rest to us - our aim is your complete satisfaction.
