CUSTOMER REVIEWS FOR MAXSOLD
out of 5 Stars
Great experience and reasonable prices.
Great items, great prices, like the idea of recycling, first experience with maxsold and was impressed by the workers - very friendly, helpful, on top of things, knew what they were doing, made it fun.
MaxSold has been easy to make bids, the places are local and easy to find, the people are always so organized and nice when you pick up.
Ease of bidding.
Like the setup for pickup
I find something I want to buy and then bid on a bunch of other stuff because I am going anyway.
Smooth check out. Talked with others who regularly shop with Max Sold and all of them enjoyed the experience. Will bid again.
The people I have dealt with were organized, extremely helpful & always pleasant.
Easy to participate in.
The process was easy
Great crew, very professional and organized, and friendly and considerate.
I was quite impressed. Both, the knowledge of the process and knowledge of the merchandise available for sale made me happy I chose MaxSold
As a veteran professional organizer, I have high standards for the 3rd party vendors I bring in to help my clients. And I have to say that so far those high standards have been met and exceeded by MaxSold. The transparency and clarity of the MaxSold process make it an extremely appealing alternative to the comparatively murky world of traditional estate sales. The integrity, efficiency, professionalism and friendliness of the MaxSold ""ninja"" team that arrived at my client's home last week to assemble; photograph and catalog my clients' belongings were amazing. Julia's skill for managing time, manpower and other resources perfectly complemented Mark's understanding of multiple categories of collectibles and salable goods. My client and I have yet to see how the online auction & pickup process goes. But so far, we are beyond impressed and grateful to MaxSold for the way they've simplified the process of downsizing her family's unneeded belongings. Julia and Mark were amazing!! They worked together efficiently, professionally and creatively to identify, photograph and describe my client's many rare, unusual, and sometimes truly quirky belongings. They explained their process, and welcomed our input; and they knew exactly how to group everything for maximum sales appeal. We couldn't have done it without them, and I can't wait to use them again!
Everyone I dealt with was friendly and helpful and got back to me in a timely fashion. Every detail was explained to me fully and all my questions were answered to my satisfaction.
Well organized staff and knowledgeable of their job. Great Job!
Thrilled that the reaction to MaxSold when presented is so well received. It doesn't take much for people to realize the value (on many levels) MaxSold brings.
Christine is very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly !
So far, things are running smoothly. Everyone has been helpful and courteous. The next step is to catalog the items for auction. I'm looking forward to working with your staff. I hope someone else will find some enjoyment from these items.
So far so good..I am moving out of State..I am happy with their prompt scheduing..can't wait for the outcome. Definitey worth using this Company. They do everything from Cars to house ceaning products. They are incredibe
By far the most cost effective, client responsible services that a national move manager affiliate can possibly do for themselves and for their clients.
Why is MaxSold the Best Estate Sale Company in Massachusetts?
At MaxSold, we know that selling a home and its contents are just part of your story. That's why our local experts assist thousands of Americans each year, making the process quick, efficient and hassle-free. We provide on-site assistance to photograph and catalogue your household contents, and to support the pick-up process on your chosen timeline. Online we'll take care of marketing your auction and collecting payment from all of your bidders. We can ensure everything is sold and removed in less than two weeks-letting you to get back to the things that matter.
At MaxSold we see the value in worldly possessions, and we convert it into cash for our clients, relieving them of the burden of stuff while helping extend the useful life of goods. Our mission is to make the process of reselling easy so that our clients can get on with all that life has to offer.
The advantage of using MaxSold to host an estate auction online is that our digital reach is larger than a traditional auction company. The traditional format relies on bidders being physically present and available on a specific day and time. Our clients benefit from a large pool of buyers who we reach on platforms like Facebook, advertising auction lots directly to them. And because there are more bidders, they bid competitively!
Estate Sales in Massachusetts
Our first auction was an estate sale in Westwood, MA in 2013. The home was a beautiful Victorian-era farmhouse that had been in the same family for more than sixty years. It was there that we first encountered the wealth of Massachusetts history through the objects being auctioned--from original gas lighting fixtures to crockery and fine art. There was a wealth of home decor from Scandinavian Mid-Century Modern to antique furniture made locally in Massachusetts. There was also an amazingly cool Volvo P1800, the same model driven by the late Roger Moore in the hit British show The Saint.
Massachusetts' long history of being at the forefront of American culture and advancement makes it a unique place to buy and sell used items. Beyond our regular Boston estate sales, our service area includes more than 200 communities across the state, each with their own unique histories and legacies. The Declaration of Independence was first read in 1776 from the Old South Church in Worchester, MA, on the site of the present-day Worchester City Hall; the first American English dictionary was made in Springfield, MA, which was actually the first of many Springfield's in the US (including that made famous by The Simpsons). For a time, Lowell, Massachusetts was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in America, producing goods that were used across the country, and Quincy, MA was the site of the Granite Railroad--America's first commercial railroad. Whether it's a Colonial Revival buffet, a set of Dedham cobalt blue stoneware, or a rookie baseball card from a famous Red Sox player, the history of Estate Sales in Massachusetts is reflected in the objects that are resold here, and in the interest and commitment that buyers have towards possessing a piece of that history. One of the reasons we are so effective at selling everything is that we also sell practical, everyday items--from carpentry tools and tractor/snow blowers, to Crate & Barrel outdoor furniture sets and exercise equipment. We help clear homes of contents, so our auctions include everything from the most unique to the most common and useful.
Who Uses MaxSold and Why?
The vast majority of our clients use MaxSold for estate sales and downsizing. Our clients in MA also use MaxSold for decluttering, cleaning out household contents prior to renovations, demolition, or moving.
An estate auction occurs when a large portion of a person's material possessions are resold at once--usually because they are relocating or have passed away. Because this can be a difficult time for families, MaxSold is committed to making the auction process hassle-free...and we do it with care and consideration for your items and your circumstances.
With MaxSold, just like a live auction, items are organized into lots--and potential purchasers place live bids on the lot they are interested in. MaxSold then collects money from purchasers, using our secure online platform, and our clients receive one cheque for the total value of the auction (minus fees).
Who are the Bidders?
Sellers in Massachusetts find a number of local and regional collectors and antiquarians looking for unique items to complement their catalogue. We also find people with an eye for design, who will use MaxSold to find stand-out or unique items to furnish their homes. From Cambridge's many world-renowned universities and colleges, to an impressive network of state, community and liberal arts colleges in places like Amherst, Waltham and Milton, many ethically-minded students also use MaxSold to look for furniture and other household items like crockery, lamps and office equipment they can rely on to furnish their apartments. This younger generation of consumers values green alternatives, and they will pay fair market value for a second-hand item satisfied that they've made the most environmentally friendly choice.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Estate Auctions in Massachusetts
What is the average commission for an estate sale in Massachusetts?
Like any other service, from one estate auctioneer or planner to the next you'll find a huge range of commission rates depending on a number of factors such as location, the number of lots in the auction and the kinds of goods that are being auctioned off. Traditionally, the value of an auctioneer is in their connections with buyers in specialized markets, but these relationships could be ethically suspect, operating as much in the service of the buyer as in that of the seller. However, MaxSold's auction process is entirely transparent and all goods are sold at fair-market value, and an extensive report is provided indicating the number of bids that each lot received and the total value of each item. Any question about whether the commission was worth it, is avoided completely.
What should you not sell at a garage sale?
It seems obvious to say, but you should never sell illegal substances or regulated goods in a garage sale. But you should always try to sell anything you don't want. People are constantly finding ingenious ways of repurposing goods; others will see opportunity even in goods that you think are junk and reinvent them. And, if you manage to resell your goods, you'll get money and have diverted goods from landfill.
What items sell best at estate sales in MA?
The best items to sell at an estate sale are changing all the time, based on consumer trends and supply chains. During COVID-19, for example, so many people have been interested in setting up home gyms that suppliers have run out of stock and MaxSold has become one of the few places to find these items quickly. Although items like mid-century modern furniture have been on-trend for a number of years, at MaxSold we believe ALL items can sell through online auction. Because we advertise and market auctions to the broadest possible audience, we know that this interest is what actually makes items of all kinds sell--whether it's a snow shovel or an antique vanity.
How long does it take to set up an estate sale?
Setting up an in-person estate auction can take a lot of time. You have to catalogue contents, set up a location for buyers to view and purchase items, and advertise to the local and regional community, drumming up interest that could all be thwarted simply because the weather is bad. A MaxSold auction can clear an estate in under two weeks, from cataloguing to pick-up. We can be as hands-on as you need us to be, with teams of local experts available in counties across the state.
How do I set up an online estate sale?
Setting up an online estate sale is simple--call MaxSold. You can either photograph and catalogue your contents, and be present on pickup day to assist buyers, and MaxSold will take care of marketing your auction and ultimately collecting payment from bidders. Or you can let MaxSold take care of the process through our local expert teams who will help you through each stage of the process.
