Losing a loved one is never easy.

Aside from the deep, emotional loss, there is also taking care of an estate to think about.

The period after a loved one’s death is the hardest. However, it’s all the things you have to do on tight deadlines that make everything even worse.

Fortunately, we can help share some of that load by handling your estate cleanout for you and making sure you’re not alone in your grief. Since we’re fully aware that an estate cleanout after a loved one’s death is an excruciating experience, our estate cleaners can help you handle everything with as little hassle and stress as possible.

Here are a few great reasons why hiring our estate cleaning services can help you in these difficult times.

Appraisal for Estate Possessions

These professionals do an excellent job of determining and ascertaining the value of items that can be sold. They can also help you divide the items among family members.

Most people don’t know how to assess the value of assets on their own, and the chances are that your loved one had valuable items in their possession.

An appraisal allows professionals to itemize the visual inventory of everything in the estate.

Appraisers can also help determine an heirloom’s value. They can even help track down essential documents.

Removing Junk from the Estate Home

Go through the estate and do a rough sort. If you find any items that may be valuable for appraisals, such as antiques, jewellery, silver, antique furniture, contemporary design, and fine art, make sure they are appropriately stored and protected for assessment.

Everything else you don’t need, you can remove.

One of the simplest and easiest ways to painlessly complete your estate cleanout is to rent a dumpster to dispose of things you don’t need anymore.

With that in mind, our Ottawa junk removal services can help you handle this overwhelming task almost effortlessly and on time.

Saving Time & Money for the Estate

So, it’s best not to use a vague timeline, but rather set a reasonable time limit to handle the cleanout and inform the entire family, especially if the landlord insists on a deadline.

Getting your cleanout done promptly will help you save time, effort and resources, but it also ensures that you don’t miss anything important in the process.

Take your time, stay focused and calm, but do come up with a firm date and stick to the plan.

Estate Sales

It is also the best way to ensure the best price for the valuable items, as hiring an estate liquidator can help with the estate sale.

The estate sale is among the final steps of your estate cleanout, and it usually includes a large number of items to sell.

Therefore, relying on professional help to do it right is the best way to get the job done in a timely manner and without too much effort. Professionals know the market and the prices; they can give valuable advice on how to get the most out of your estate.

Shipping

If there are any items in good condition left that can still be used, the best thing to do is to either contact your relatives and ship the items to them or choose an appropriate charity to arrange a pickup.

Many of the items you don’t need can be repurposed, recycled, or donated.
