I've heard these are opening up on the East Coast States...Anyone heard of these?

They basically resell the personals on consignment that us contractors remove from the homes. I guess that they actually come in with trucks and remove all the personals while contractor is on site (for free) and negotiate what the sale prices would be for each item and the profit split....

I'm trying to find something about them....just might be interested in this type of business model OR use them for free labor :whistling

I haven't heard anything like that. I would be scared to do it then the owner sues you.

WOW,

We would be all over the free labor and less landfill trips and heck they could keep all from what they sell; as I would sell anything of real value myself anyways! :clap:

Better not let the clients find out. These other companies aren't allowed on site and most contracts state you cannot sell items from site. If one of their employees get hurt, guess what happens to you?

You're better off doing all of this yourself once you've separated and removed the items.

I "recycle" whats of value myself.


I don't need a store.
We have a local consignment auction. I probably get about the same as the 50% cut from those stores.
And once the property goes thru the eviction, right of redemption etc that state laws provide for the former owners have no claim to whats left behind.

I was wondering myself on all the ramifications. They apparently don't have a web site that I can find.

For us I would love to find a company that would come take the personals from storage since that would save considerable time and money. We store everything per State statutes.

BINGO! I don't want to waste time either. It really is a shame how much very good stuff goes to the landfill that someone sure could use though.

I used to take stuff to Goodwill, Salvation Army and other places till they started wanting it to be washed and folded.

I have been known to throw boxes of clothing/coats/shoes over the side of the bridge to the homeless people living in tents. Yes I make sure they are not "bombs" and nobody is below but they sure have people watching from the wooded areas since they run out and start grabbing. You gotta feel sorry for them and if it helps put clothes on their backs instead of the landfill I'll do it.
