Refunds, Haggling, & Undiscovered Treasures: Estate Sale FAQs
Estate sales bring a sense of wonder and joy to all who attend, but not everyone is a seasoned estate sale pro. Before you visit, you may have a lingering question in the back of your mind that you’d like answered beforehand. Thankfully, Blue Moon Estate Sales has gathered our most popular questions and answers to each of them. Let’s take a closer look.
Can Anyone Attend an Estate Sale?
Yes! Estate sales are not only for the rich and wealthy. They are for families or individuals experiencing changing circumstances and needing to transition in a seamless and professional manner. We encourage anyone and everyone to attend a Blue Moon Estate Sale. With our informed staff members and unexpected treasures, we offer something for everyone.
What is Your Refund Policy?
All sales with Blue Moon Estate Sales are final. We do, however, take special circumstances into consideration for items that were rung up incorrectly, price adjustments, or others.
Should I Haggle for the Best Price?
At Blue Moon, there’s no need for negotiations. We use the latest technology coupled with years of experience to determine fair market value for items we sell. When you shop with us, you can be sure that you’re getting a great deal. If there is something special that’s a bit over your budget, check in closer to the end of the sale—we may be able to work with you.
Can I Get the Prices of Items Ahead of Time?
With thousands of items for sale each week, we are unable to share prices ahead of time. Rest assured, we price items to sell at fair market value. Just keep in mind, when it comes to estate sale treasures, the early bird does in fact get the worm.
What’s the Difference Between an Estate Sale & a Garage Sale?
Your average garage sale tends to feature a selection of belongings that are no longer needed, typically assembled in a driveway, garage, or lawn. An estate sale, however, takes place in the home itself and are more formal. Estate sales are a professionally run sale designed to help sell almost everything in the home. Think of it as a pop-up retail experience, complete with a wide variety of items.
What Can I Expect to Find at an Estate Sale?
At Blue Moon, we’ve seen everything from handy kitchen gadgets and hand-carved 17th-century rosewood sculptures to name-brand clothing items and unique furniture pieces. You truly never know what you’re going to find, but you’re bound to have a fun and memorable experience every time.
Does Blue Moon Estate Sales Offer a Delivery Service of Large Items?
Unfortunately, we do not. All purchases are required to be removed by the buyer. Our staff may or may not be able to help with getting items to your vehicle depending on the flow of the sale.
We do however allow our customers to coordinate a pickup time and date for larger items with our estate sale professionals.
Do You Accept All Forms of Payment?
Yes! We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.
Is There a Rewards Program?
Absolutely! Blue Moon Estate Sales loves to reward our customers and provide them with ample opportunities to find treasures. We offer a Shopper Rewards Club that turns points into payouts. When you shop Blue Moon estate sales, and buy things you love, we’ll award you a specific set of points.
