During these unprecedented times, we take our role as an essential service provider seriously and we remain open to service our customers. We understand that everyone is very concerned with the potential spread of the Coronavirus. We’re following the guidelines put in place by the federal government, local governments and the CDC.
Below are some of the safety precautions we’ve implemented to protect our team and our clients:
When a loved one passes, it falls upon the family or executors to perform a professional estate cleanout or estate liquidation. It is a difficult task in the best of times, compounded by the grief and flow of memories that come from sorting through a family member’s personal belongings.
Many items will be disbursed to family members. However, there will be many more items that nobody in the family either wants or needs. That’s where 123JUNK can help.
You will want to pull out any item that has substantial sentimental value, and those with tangible value like money, art collections, or jewelry and either keep, pass down or sell those pieces.
For all the rest, call 123JUNK. You won’t have to worry about sorting items because that is what we do as part of the Donate—Recycle—Dispose process that is the heart of our business. Simply direct us to the items you want removed. We can clear an individual room, garage or attic, or empty an entire home in an estate cleanout. Not job is too large or too small.
If there are items you want to consider donating to a local charity, like clothing, furniture, antiques, and household goods, we can take them for you and provide you with photographs and a receipt of your donation for tax purposes. For junk and debris, we’ll sort through it to see if there is anything else that can be used by one of our local charitable partners, and dispose of the rest.
Our professional staff is respectful, both to your situation and to the property. We take care to pad corners and floors to protect your home and your belongings as we work.
We understand the nuances of working with clients who are grieving, and are respectful of both your possessions and in all our interactions with you. These can be some of the most difficult conversations we have with clients, who always appreciate the extra time he takes to actually listen. You can expect that type of personal communication with everyone you come into contact with at 123JUNK.
Just to note, an estate cleanout is different from an estate sale or an estate liquidation. In an estate cleanout, items are removed from the home and taken elsewhere for disposal or donation. In an estate sale, items within the home are put up for sale and potential purchasers come to the home on advertised sale days. An estate liquidation disposes of one’s real and personal property and can legally include stocks, bonds, real estate and collections like fine art or jewelry. These most often involve the estate attorney or a CPA.
123JUNK can work with family members or the executor, estate attorney or Realtor to ensure that your estate cleanout goes smoothly. Please contact us today to obtain a free estimate or schedule your pickup appointment. We serve families in in Northern Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C.
