Sale of Household Goods

But what will happen to all of my extra things?

As part of the downsizing process, Gordon’s Estate Services will manage the disposal, donation or sale of any extra assets.You may have heard that Gordon’s no longer conducts live onsite content auctions. That’s because we found a new, better and more cost efficient way to sell your extra assets online. Don't worry if you don't like to use a computer, we'll do all the work for you, and you'll get a detailed, itemized summary of what everything sold for.
