Seller’s Guide

Downsizing? We can help. We know it’s not easy to liquidate a business or sell a lifetime of memories. That’s why Estate Sale Professionals promises to treat your possessions like we would want someone to treat ours.

No upfront fees.

We work on commission and receive a percentage of the sale. 

  • We buy whole and partial estates. 
  • We do consignments.
  • We do business liquidations, getting you the highest value for your equipment and inventory.

We go through every closet, nook and cranny, organizing, researching, pricing and advertising your sale. 

We’ll talk with you about what to do with what’s left — you can take it, or we’ll donate it to charity.

With more than 25 years of experience in resale, we know what your items are worth. 

Free initial consultation. Call 865-385-5555.

Getting ready for your sale:

  • Don’t throw anything away! Often the things people think are junk can bring in quite a bit of money.
  • Do remove your cherished memories from the home. If you are giving items to family members, do that first. And then, call Estate Sale Professionals. We do ask that you not remove items after we have begun working on the sale.  
  • Relax. Don’t come to the sale, but let us handle everything. A week later you’ll have a check. It’s that simple!

Buyer’s Guide

If you see a purple van, it’s a great sale! 

Our sales offer great values on antiques, vintage clothing, retro home decor and many useful items for home and business. 

For security reasons, we announce the location of our estate sales one day in advance. Watch our website, Facebook page and, for location. Or, subscribe to our email newsletters and you’ll always be in the know. 

Numbers – On the first day of each sale, beginning one hour before it opens, we’ll hand out numbers. Please line up according to number, and we will let a steady flow of people into the house in an orderly fashion.

No Previews – So that our customers are not disappointed, we do not do pre-sales at all. What you see online is what’s for sale. 

Payment – We accept Cash, Credit Cards and Debit Cards only. NO CHECKS.   

Security – All handbags and shopping bags are subject to inspection if we suspect theft of our clients’ belongings.

Parking – Please be respectful of neighbors and do not block the driveways. 

Discounts – On the second day of any sale, we’re ready to make a deal. Don’t miss it! 

Large Items – If you wish to buy a large item, we will mark it “sold” at an agreed upon price. We have limited ability to move large items. Please bring help to move furniture.
