How Long Will it Take you to Conduct the Sale From Start to Finish?

This depends on the contents of the home and the size of the job.  We typically run a 2-3 day sale. Ideally, we advise a minimum of 2 weeks for advertising to generate interest and to promote the sale. We also require a minimum of 7-10 days to organize, display, research, inventory and price the items.

Can I live in the Home while you set-up the estate sale?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept sales in homes that will be occupied during the weeks we need to display, organize, price, setup and conduct your sale. The reason for this; Once we begin setting up tables, bringing in our work crew, company supplies, and start the process of removing items from cupboards, drawers and closets, the home becomes nearly impossible for you to live in comfortably. 

Do you help with home organization and decluttering only?

We specialize in liquidating assets. We don't make money unless you make money. With that said, if you are looking for decluttering and home organization services we have an excellent contact.

Are you members of ASEL or NESA?

Lythcoop held a membership with ASEL since 2013, but decided to cancel our membership in April of 2019. We found no value in being a paid member, and have no interest in joining any other for-profit organizations at this time.

What Does the Word Lythcoop Mean?

Lythcoop is an old English word that means "the sale or auction of household goods" and is pronounced [ lith koÍžop ]

Will You Provide a Contract or Statement of Services?

Yes, we will provide both. We will go over our contract and answer any questions you may have. At that time, we will go over any additional services/fees that may be applicable to your estate. You will also receive an itemized inventory of all items in your home that are valued  >$25, which includes the list price, and how much each individual item sold for. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Advertising Handled?

We begin by taking many photographs of your items. We will post photos and information about your sale on, and, along with photos and information about your sale here on  In addition, we send email alerts to our mailing list, advertise via social media and utilize Marketplace and Online Auctions for maximum reach and exposure. We will also place plenty of professional signs in the neighborhood to direct extra traffic to the location of the sale.

How Much Will it Cost?

It costs absolutely nothing to get process started. Our commissions for the estate sale are taken from the gross proceeds of the sale. 

We pride ourselves in having the experience, knowledge and licenses required to help you liquidate your assets from start to finish. Whether it's just an estate sale, listing your home, or both!  We do it all so you don't have to. 

What if There are Items I Would Like to Keep?

We ask that you remove small items and tag larger items you wish to keep prior to meeting with us because our agreement to conduct the sale is based on the contents of the estate at the time of agreement.

NOTE: Once you have signed the contract, items cannot be removed from the sale without incurring a fee. The reason;  many of our customers travel long distances to attend our estate sales, and they expect the items advertised to be available  when the doors open. 

Is your Estate Sale / Auction Company Licensed and Insured?

Yes, we are also member of the Better Business Bureau and hold an A+ rating. In addition, we hold certifications for both Appraisals and Auctions.
