What You Can Expect

  • Professional staging utilizing tables, tablecloths, lights, easels, shelves, locked cases.
  • Pricing by professional, certified appraisers & specialists.
  • Friendly, well trained and informed team members on-site to make the shopping experience as enjoyable as possible, recognizable by their black polo uniforms and name tags.
  • Personal shoppers to streamline the shopping experience: starting a receipt, marking sold items  with names and cell phone numbers, and running objects to the hold area.
  • A dedicated hold, check-out and packing area.
  • Acceptance of credit cards for purchases over $100.00 with back-up information including driver’s license numbers, addresses and phone numbers.  (Lesser amounts may be subject to a fee).
  • Parking on only one side of the street
  • Inaccessible areas boldly identified with signage and caution tape.  No use of rest rooms.

 

Before the Sale

  • No prior previews, pricing or sales.
  • An off-site office number available before or after the sale days: 973-425-1550.
  • A Magnusson List with header and embossed seal posted before the sale to determine the entry order of each person (not couples). One number per person. Early arrivers should sign and photograph the list, and wait in line.  (If you see a list without our header & seal, please call 973-425-1550). The list will be posted on the day before the sale starts. See specific Estate Sale Listing for more information.

Electronic Entry Number Form

Sign up to receive your entry number for each of our Estate Sales. Your entry number designates the order in which you can enter the estate sale on the first day of the sale.

An entry number is only required if you would like to be one of the first people in the home when we start the estate sale.

One RSVP ticket per person (not couples).

After you RSVP, you will receive a confirmation email. The Magnusson team will have a complete copy of all RSVPs on site. We recommend that you bring an electronic or paper copy of your confirmation email.

If you do not receive a confirmation email, check your spam folder. If you do not see it, call our office at 973-425-1550 & ask for our Communications Coordinator, Becky.

Doors open on time so remember to be in line before the sale starts.

 

During the Sale

  • A dedicated on-site phone: 862-777-2173 to inquire or leave messages about the status of items.
  • Your large purses or bags will be replaced  with a clear bag to carry your personals within the sale home.  Empty open-top shopping bags are welcome.
  • HOLD = SOLD.  If you’ve placed items on the hold table or have had items marked sold, you are expected to purchase them. Preventing others from purchasing is most unwelcome.
  • The price on your receipt is the price to be paid for your items at checkout.  Negotiations are prohibited at this point.
  • We accept bids on items over $100.  Your bid is a binding offer to purchase and to remove before the end of the sale.  Please do not bid if you do not intend to execute.  Those that do not execute their offers are added to our “Pay No Mind” list for future sales.
  • Please recycle your bags, boxes & paper from the last sale.
  • FINALLY… ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO RETURNS, REFUNDS, OR EXCHANGES.

 

Picking Up Your Items From The Sale

You’ll find us helpful and accommodating, but Magnusson Team Members are unable to assist outside of the home. Porters will get your large items out the door.  It is our responsibility to protect our client’s property as well as sell its contents.  You are responsible for getting product into your vehicle or to your house down the street.

We are happy to provide you with a list of moving companies to transport your purchases.

    Bought a beautiful Smith and Maitland Cocktail Table at one of your Estate Sale. You have the highest quality item at your sale and reasonably priced.
