We just wanted to share this quick success story: As part of our estate management service, we are sometimes contracted to ‘sweep out’ the entire contents of a home for better or worse. Naturally we will purchase or take on consignment any items of noteworthy value but in some cases, there is so much ‘junk’ that once we have picked the visible items, the customer still needs to get rid of everything else. In these instances, a fee is negotiated to remove the undesirables. Since we are ‘pickers’, the beauty of hiring us to manage the clean out allows that in the event we find something of value buried in the trash- we will notify the owner and alter the terms of agreement if needed.
The other day, we found over $10,000 of US Savings Bonds made out to the executor of the estate and rescued them from the trash. A junk removal service would not have noticed these and they would have been lost forever. Just another reason to keep us in mind to help liquidate the contents of your estate.
As partners with Habitat for Humanity, we always donate lots of items when doing a clean-out job! We cover Damascus, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Silver Spring, Colesville, Rockville, Potomac, Bethesda, Great Falls, Darnestown, Montgomery Village, Wheaton, Frederick, Hagerstown, Mount Airy, Baltimore and most of Maryland.
