How do you Pay for Items at an Estate Sale?

IMG_9353If you’re the type of person who enjoys a good estate sale, you always have one thing on your mind: finding that one item (or items) you can’t live without.

Once you lay eyes on this item, nothing will stop you from making a purchase.

But before you can do so, there’s an important question to answer: what methods of payment are accepted?

This is something to check on before visiting an estate sale, as it depends largely on the company managing the event.

Generally speaking, credit card is the buyer’s preferred choice of making an estate sale purchase. This is easy for both the buyer and seller.

However, there are other options to consider. For example, everyone takes cash and a check is also an idea to keep in the back of your mind.

Note: if using a personal check, most events only accept this form of payment up to a certain amount.

Planning in advance will go a long way in helping you avoid an issue with your form of payment. To make things as easy as possible, you should consider paying with cash. If this isn’t an option, maybe because you’re making a large purchase, think about using a credit card.

Most estate sales make it easy for buyers to purchase items. For this reason, they provide the opportunity to pay with cash, check, and credit card.

What is your preferred payment method? Why do you use this method over the rest?
