When can I Remove an Item from an Estate Sale?

dscn9076You visit an estate sale for one primary reason: to find those special items that put a smile on your face.

If you’re lucky enough to find something to purchase, it goes without saying that you’ll be excited to get it home.

This leads to a very important question: when can you remove an item that you have purchased?

In short, you can take the item as soon as you’ve paid the cashier. Not only is this good for you, but it works out well for the estate sale company.

Note: if you decide to leave an item in the home, maybe because you have to switch vehicles, make sure the managing company is aware. Not only can they mark it sold, but they may be able to take some steps towards keeping it safe. As long as you remove it before the sale ends, you’re good!

If you have plans on purchasing a large item, it’s best to bring the right type of vehicle with you the first time. This way, you can haul it away without delay.

For those who don’t have access to a large enough vehicle, speak with the estate sale company to arrange for delivery. Obviously, this is something you want to do as quickly as possible.

All in all, here’s the one thing to remember: once you purchase an item at an estate sale you are the new owner. For this reason, you can take it home without delay!
