Customized Liquidation Sale Plan

Our liquidator will start by appraising your store’s inventory at no cost or obligation to you. He or she will take all provided information into consideration and provide you with a liquidation plan that includes the potential recovery value as well as our fees. Our proven going out of business sales plan will be tailored to fit your store and your situation and get the best possible return. If you decide to work with us, you’ll maintain complete control of your entire store, including the employees and the receipts from the sale.

Promotional Event Sales

We also help with high-impact business stimulation and special event sales. Hardware store owners must adapt to a rapidly changing retail environment which means moving to a better location or changing programs is often necessary. We can help with a high-impact special event sale that will sell out the old brand and other merchandise you no longer want to carry and help raise the money you need to make the change.

Included Extras

When you work with us, we will sell your fixtures and equipment at no additional charge. You’ll also receive free advertising copywriting and high-impact signage.

One of our experienced sale consultants will work with you every step of the way to help plan discounts and manage the sale. Your hardware store liquidator will be an expert partner. If an unexpected problem arises, he or she will be there with an immediate solution.
