"How to deal with an estate"
There are many ways to disperse an estate. Variations on the following three are the most common...
- The family arrives after the funeral and clears the estate amongst themseves. The huge job is made workable by many hands all pitching in.
- Second Hand dealers are invited to cherry pick the best and the hard work is handled by the family.
- Specialists like Daves Estate Clearance are called in and the complete job is done with just one contact person.
Each of these methods has benefits and negatives. Let's take a few minutes to look at them in turn.
The Family Clearout.
One of our neighbours passed away recently. She was a quiet lady who loved her garden and her game of bowls. After the funeral you could hardly move in the street for cars. The same happened the following weekend when family descended from near and far to clear out the house. Cars and trailers were everywhere.
This time of working together was a positive time for family to bond and grieve.
Not all families work well together. The clearing out of the home can be a very tense and challenging time. Emotions are raw after a funeral and old hurts can surface. Offence can be caused by one person seeming to be gaining an advantage.
If the clearout is going to be a positive event and there are lots of people to help, then this method is very practical. Little money is passed into the estate as items are mainly dispersed amongst the relatives.
Second Hand Dealers
When the relatives are not interested in the contens of the estate, the Second Hand Dealers are often contacted. Offers are made for the items the dealers specialize in. The executor of an estate then deals with the work of clearing out the rest. Plus all the cleaning up. Large amounts of time are required to coordinate the viewings and collections by the different purchasers. Time is also required to dispose of the non salable goods.
Some money from the sale of goods is paid back into the estate.
If time, physical work, coordinating and chasing up of people suit you, this can be a good option.

Note: You have probably raised your eyebrows that there is no (') apostrophe in Daves Estate Clearance. The reason is simple... It is best not to have an apostrophe (') in a web address. As a result we unfortunately had to drop the apostrophe (') from the name.
