As we work together to identify items that no longer need to be taking space in your physical life, I will also note the disposal method for them. These methods vary based upon a number of factors, including the type of item and condition, the monetary value of the item, the item's sentimental value, and the cost of my time to complete the disposal / distribution process.
I take pictures of everything and provide you with a donation recommendation sheet for you to use when pricing your items for tax purposes.

Auctions are the way to go for items of value that you want some return on.
Merrily Moves takes pictures and sends these items to the auctioneers. If there is a large amount of inventory, the auctioneers may also come to your house to do a walkthrough.
Rare or otherwise collectible books are taken to a local bookseller.
Childrens books are donated to our local schools.
Merrily Moves can find a specific collector interested in the items in your collection or they can be taken to Auction.
Items that are worth something but aren't high-value or antiques are good candidates for consignment shops, which take a percentage of the final sale price in exchange for the service of displaying and selling the item.
Gold & Silver Jewelry and Precious Metals Household Items
If household items such as silver candlesticks, dining silver, and gold and silver jewelry have no sentimental value for you, Merrily Moves sells them on your behalf for cash.
Outdated or unneeded prescriptions are taken to a local pharmacy for proper disposal.
Non-profit Goodwill is the default recipient for everything that doesn't find a better home, but Merrily Moves will also deliver things as you see fit.
