Frequently Asked Questions

  • What cities/counties do you service? 

    • We mainly service in and around Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Depending on our schedule availability, we also consider areas outside of these counties, so feel free to contact us for a free consultation if you are interested in our services. 

  • How does a consultation work? 

    • During your free consultation, we will provide a thorough overview of the sale and give you a conservative estimate on the value of the estate or business property.  Our contracts are written in a simple and easy-to-read format. We take our time and go over each section of the contract with you to make sure that all aspects of the sale are understood and agreed upon before moving forward.

  • What are your costs?   

    • ​We factor in the amount of work involved and the size of the estate/business. Our commission covers all of the following: set-up costs, labor and pricing/appraisals. There are no hidden fees and the only additional costs we charge for are dumpster rental fees for excessive trash and/or fees associated with hauling away of bulky items.

  • What about cars or other items that are worth a lot of money? 

    • Our commission is reduced for any working vehicle, as well as any single item worth more than $5,000.

  • Do you ever buy-out an entire estate or business inventory?    

    • On rare occasions we will consider buying-out an entire estate or business inventory, but we mainly focus our services on selling items on a commission basis and/or consignment.

  • How will my sale be advertised? 

    • Your sale will be listed on one of the main estate sale listing websites. We also feature your sale on the landing page of our website. All members of our email list and social media followers are kept up-to-date on when and where our sales are happening. We also display signs in and around the neighborhood of the sale and display a large banner on the property during the sale. 

  • How many people will be working at the sale?  

    • We have between 2 to 5 employees assisting during each day of the sale. Additionally, a security guard is hired to deter theft and confirm receipts as patrons exit.

  • What happens to the remaining items that do not sell?   

    • After the sale, our team will clean up any clutter or trash and sort unsold items in an organized area of the property. You will have the opportunity to decide how you would like to proceed with the remaining unsold items:

      • You can choose to dispose of the items yourself

      • We can assist you in scheduling a donation pick-up

      • We can assist in scheduling a dumpster rental or hauling service (for an additional cost) 

  • What if I decide to sell some items after the sale has ended?

    • If there are items remaining after the sale that you do not want to keep but are at a high enough value that you do not feel like donating, we do offer a consignment agreement depending on the item and our storage availability. These items will be kept by Erik's Lost and Found, LLC. to offer at a future sale or commissioned to an auction house. All costs and details will be provided in a separate agreement. 

  • Once the sale is complete, when should I expect to receive a final invoice and payment? 

    • Within 10 business days or sooner you will have an itemized breakdown and check in hand.
