Pickup time categories help ensure the pickup process is smooth and easy for everyone. In order to help buyers get in and out of a pickup quickly and easily, we utilize time slots based on what an item is and where it is located. Please view the auction listing for the items purchased, this will tell you what the time slot for that item is.
In general, the items are broken down into 3 groups:
Category A – Small items, like glassware, collectibles, or books, on a shelf, in a china cabinet, or another storage unit for sale are ‘Category A’. They must be removed by the buyer before the larger items can be taken out of the house.
Category B – Medium items, like a table or chairs that are obstructing a china cabinet, shelving, or a rug must be taken next. Anything larger than a ‘Category A’ item, that is on top of, or in the way of another piece needs to be removed before the buyers for ‘Category C’ collect their items.
Category C –Large items, like china cabinets, tool containers, book cases, or large rugs need to be taken out last to ensure the buyer has room to carry their large pieces out without troubles.
In addition, we want to give the buyers of ‘Category A’ lots enough time and space to pack the items they are taking. They will be assigned a bit of extra time to properly pack their items. We are also aware that some things will take time dismantle. Items in ‘Category B’ will also be allotted the time they need so they do not feel rushed.
Also note, if you have a china cabinet to take away, please arrive at the correct time. If the buyer of the china has not arrived, you will not be able to remove your china cabinet until they have come. Respectively, if you buy china please come at the time suggested so you have time to wrap and pack. This will give the buyer of the china cabinet easy access to their purchase.
At the end of the pick-up time listed, we are contractually obligated to be out of the house. If you show up minutes before the pick-up time ends and have multiple lots in all categories, you may need extra time to pack and remove your items. For this reason, you may be billed for our staff’s time to accommodate your tardiness.
