Selling your Unwanted Items via Stress Free's Online Auction
A core aspect of our downsizing and relocation service is helping our clients sell their excess, new and used items in our Frederick, MD warehouse. Through our online web-based auction site, we are able to offer our clients’ most unique, collectible and high-quality items to a wider audience.
How it works:
After items are tagged/sorted/packed at your residence for auction, they'll be brought back to the warehouse, researched, inventoried, pictured and posted to our online auction portal. *Note some items may be deemed by the auction team to be non-saleable based on the current market and prior auction sales. These items will not be posted, but sent to donation.
The Stress Free Solutions online auction allows buyers to view, access and bid from the comfort of their home. Auctions are typically launched bi-monthly on Saturday afternoons and run through Thursday evenings, giving more time for the audience to build, as well as items to gain buyer's interest and bids. The auction sale and items are marketed through social media, email blasts and SEO keywords to promote higher returns for our clients. Items are picked up the Friday and Saturday following the auction by the "winners".
Clients are entitled to 60% of the proceeds from each item sold. Revenue from each auction is received by SFS throughout each month and processed accordingly. Client commission checks from SFS are sent out the first week of each month with a report detailing the items sold and amount total. A report of items not sold via the auction (if applicable) will be sent along with a donation slip. Depending on the volume of items being processed in our warehouse and/or the duration of your downsizing project, the auction process may take up to 90 days (or more) for completion. All client accounts with SFS must be in good standing for clients to receive commission checks.
