    Settling an estate can be a stressful endeavour—but it doesn’t have to be.

    Among the list of executor responsibilities, selling the remaining possessions of the testator (the author of the will) can be a very time-consuming task.

    MaxSold is on a mission to relieve this stress by delivering a reliable, efficient, safe, and a transparent sale process.

    Whether you’re settling an estate, downsizing or just clearing away excess personal or business inventory, we offer the easiest, most efficient and proven way to sell goods through our online auction service.

    The same way Willful has brought the process of estate planning online, we’ve transformed the estate sale experience for the digital age.

    The Future of Estate Sales

    The goal of most estate sales is to maximize the total amount of the estate by getting the true value of each item being sold and also, to clear as many of the items no longer needed as quickly as possible.

    With our process, 98% of everything listed sells within two weeks. No haggling with individual buyers, no dealing with money at the door and no one coming through your home unattended to look at the items they may never buy.

    How we do it

    1. Local Experts across North America
    2. Dedicated marketing
    3. Transparent tracking

    Transparency is a very important factor when it comes to estate sales since these items not only hold monetary value but sentimental as well. At MaxSold, we provide a detailed report of every item and what it sold for. We make sure our clients are paid within 14 business days of the auction closing.

    If you’re looking for help with your estate sale, choosing a solution that is trustworthy, full service and efficient should be the criteria to base your decision on.

    Think of MaxSold as a clearing auction. By respecting all the goods and selling everything you need to sell, the MaxSold process will recover something for everything while passing the burden of removal onto buyers. This means that you can focus on more important things.
