Welcome To Trash To Treasure!
There comes a time when someone in your family passes, or you have just accumulated far too much. I know it all too well, my parents were married for 65 years continuously collecting throughout their lifetimes.
The recent social hoarding trend finds families feeling overwhelmed and hence unable to handle an estate sale of a new type.
Trash to Treasure contracts have included these types of sales. We will hold your loved ones sale and leave an organized environment.
After a long day, it can be emotionally difficult on you, reliving the memories,and then cleaning, sorting, researching values, organize the items and finally marketing and conducting the sale.
We take the physical work and emotional stress out of preparing for and conducting the sale.
We do everything from start to finish!
