    • Why You Need Estate Liquidation Services
    Using an auction house or estate services company simplifies the evaluation, dispersal, and liquidation of property involved in the probate process. All too often we see exceptional collections sell for a fraction of its potential value because it was at the wrong place at the wrong time. By using a company with multiple show rooms like Peachtree & Bennett, estate items are available for an estate sale, auction consignment or outright purchase at multiple locations. We professionally evaluate all estate items to draw the highest price in the appropriate market. Also, we determine if your estate items are a better fit for auction, consignment, or outright purchase. Our number one goal is to get the highest dollar amount for your estate items.
