Estate Sales and Clear outs
Estate Sales often happen during times of hard transitions. The liquidation of a home can be a stressful, emotional, and time-consuming process. Clearing out a home may not be something that you have time or emotional energy to do in the time frame you need it done in.
Since 2016 Blue Nest Home’s team of compassionate and professional organizers has been helping families make this transition in a caring way that allows the family to take time for themselves while also getting the project done at the same time.
Each estate is unique, which is why we start each job with a free in-home consultation to help you clarify your goals and expectations. We walk you through your options and help you pick the path best suited to your specific situation, whether it be an online estate sale auction, a donation to charity, a junk haul, or a combination of the above. Blue Nest Home provides the expertise, the team, and the muscle to get the job done.
We’ll help you through every step of the process:
Deciding what to keep or sell.
Disposing of unwanted items, including waste.
Removal of all items.
WHAT IS MY “DASHBOARD”?
Your dashboard is a place that organizes and presents you account information in one, easy-to-access location. You can access all your account information directly from the dashboard including: items won, consignments, items following, items bid upon, billing info, etc. You can also update your credit card information from your dashboard ( see “How do I change my credit card on file?”) below.
WHY DO YOU REQUIRE A CREDIT CARD ON FILE IN ORDER FOR ME TO BID?
Blue Nest Home only accepts bids by people whose credit cards are valid, registered and vetted by our credit card processing platform in order to protect the integrity of our auction. We require a valid credit card for all bidders (Amex, Discover, Visa, or Mastercard). Additionally, to ensure efficient processing, the primary credit card on file for all bidders is charged once the auction closes. The charge will include the hammer price, buyers’ premium, and pertinent sales tax.
Please note: All credit card information is encrypted to the highest levels of safety possible and will not be used or distributed for any other purposes.
HOW DO I CHANGE MY CREDIT CARD ON FILE?
1) Log into your dashboard
2) Click on ACCOUNT
3) Choose MANAGE PAYMENT OPTIONS
4) + ADD CREDIT / DEBIT CARD button;
5) Enter your details as prompted and then click ADD.
Once the card is added you can choose to make it your primary (or default) card for any future auction’s auto debit.
If you received notification that you were a winning bidder but your credit card was declined, simply update your credit card on file. You will then notice that your auction winnings will appear in your shopping cart. Simply check-out and you’re all set.
BEFORE YOU BID:
Check the item description for dimensions to verify it fits in your vehicle, whether you may need additional manpower to move the item and if you need to bring your own packing materials. If you are choosing shipping as your delivery method, please understand and read through our shipping policies.
CAN YOU MAKE THE PICK UP DATE?

Call and let us know who will be picking up your items. 360.551.4839. Blue Nest Home does not provide alternate pick up times. Buyers agree to forfeit purchase without refund if they cannot make the pickup time. By placing a bid you agree to forfeit your purchase without refund if you cannot make the posted pick up time, pay the shipping costs or make prior arrangements. Inquire by emailing email@example.com
I NEED TO HAVE MY ITEMS SHIPPED.
EACH LOT CONTAINS A PHOTO INDICATING IF THE LOT IS AVAILABLE TO BE SHIPPED.
Blue Nest Home is a small, independently owned company that provides shipping services as a convenience factor to our buyers. If you select shipping when you place your bid and you win, your card on file will be charged the actual cost of shipping plus a handling fee of $25.00 when your item ships. Shipping may take up to two weeks following the close of an auction. All questions must be addressed prior to bidding on items. No refunds will be given for shipped items. No refund will be issued if the buyer decides not to ship.
WHAT IS EXTENDED BIDDING AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY?
Much like bidding during a live auction, the auctioneer generally won’t hammer at the first bid. Auctioneers will give other bidders an opportunity to increase their bids until there is no further action / interest in the piece. We feature “extended bidding”in our online auction format because it best mimics live bidding (albeit in a timed format). All bids placed within the last five minutes of the auction will extend that auction an additional five minutes to allow further offers.
Why do we use extended bidding you may ask? In order to create the fairest simulated “real-life” auction scenario possible and to prevent “bid sniping.
If you are out bid you will receive an email notifying you. You then have the option to submit another bid.
I THINK I WON AN ITEM, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
All winners will receive an email explaning payment, resale certificates, pick-up information, item storage and shipping options. All won items can also be accessed by logging into your dashboard.
If you do not receive an email with the pick-up information, please check your spam fold first. If it is still not located, please notify us by sending us a message directly through Auction Ninja or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO PICK-UP.
Bring your invoice and look for signage indicating where to check-In. Please be patient, as yu may have to wait in line. When it is your turn, a Blue Nest Home team member will take you to your items. Please remember to bring an appropriate vehicle, additional manpower if needed and packing materials to remove your items.
