So I don’t want to make a poor post that has way to many items to digest in one thread. My dad’s a general contractor and we’re clearing out our inventory and storage to clear space and get some cash. Here’s a list of the items, I’m wondering if I can get some advice on how I should go about posting these in a thread to get some cost estimations. I’m looking for maybe a little under what a fair price is because I’d rather sell it faster than have to wait. Thanks

Power equipment/tools
-John deere snowblower
-Rototiller attachments (street sweeper, brush/hay cutter/ snow blower)
-Janitrol industrial heating fans (need to be wired)
-Reliant dust collector
-Old bandsaw
-Old drill press
-Delta 6” joiner
-2 stihl chainsaws with 6 chains (only one starts sometimes)
-7” Dewalt angle grinder
-2 Reddy kerosene heaters
-Small Bosch hammer drill
-Bostitch coil gun (doesn’t shoot)
- Mason jar vaccuum sealer

Building materials
-Garage entry door with casing
-interior door with jambs and casing already set (I forget what they call those)
2 residential steel doors
-Those basement entry doors where one of em stays in place and the other is for opening and closing
-2 Anderson single unit double hung windows
-Anderson Frenchwood gliding patio door frames/doors/screens (no passage hardware)
-Steel ceiling window blind
-Wooden storm door with no screen
-Dozen glass and net screens for windows
-5—> 1 3/8” x 30” x 6’8” wood stained doors
-2 unit 64”x66” Anderson double hung window with replacement sash
-2 Marvin 36” x 66” windows with screens and casing
-Anderson transom window 10”x60”
-Harvey building products double hung window with broken glass 16×32
Mansfield toilet
-2 Bemis toilet covers
-Grohe shower head kit with flexible hose and nozzle setup

Ps. Once I get an idea of how I think I should post these in threads then I can post pictures and give more details on each item. I’m aware I might need to go to other forums thst I might not be used to in order to get the feedback I need. Much appreciated

Patrick – if I were in your shoes, I would hire an outside source that specializes
in home-type estate sales & auctions to come out and discuss the situation with them.
you have enough material, tools and equipment there to successfully get rid of everything
in one day. wash your hands and be done with it.
I think you said all these things are in Rhode Island ??
we have no clue what sells and doesn’t sell in that area.
trying to clean up all the stuff, test it, take and post photos, and get zero results is just wasting
your valuable time. this forum is not here to assist in garage sales of this magnitude.
a few “woodworking related” items here and there is fine – but, not a whole barn full of everything.
google: “Estate Auction Sales” for your area.
trying to piecemeal all those items one-by-one will drive you (and the members here) crazy.
honestly, I strongly suggest hiring some outside help to move all of it quickly for you.
wishing you the best,
John

when my father passed away, he left a pole barn full of handyman and carpentry things.
a full greenhouse and nursery full of plants, tools, dirt, fertilizers, plant pots, etc.
it was staggering. my brother and I spent a week getting it all organized. ran an ad in the
paper (this was before the internet) of an “outside the house” estate sale with a brief list
of items. for 10 hours on a Saturday, over 135 people came and almost everything was GONE.
what was left either went to the landfill or burn pile.
in just one weekend, the whole place was cleaned up.
there are places on CraigsList and FaceBook to list yard, garage and estate sales.
just something to think about to save your sanity.

an example of “selling everything”, a guy bought a bunch of stuff and then asked ups how much
we wanted for the overhead sprinkler watering system. we walked under it for years and never
gage it a thought to sell it. we told the guy, you take it down, you can have it.
poof – hundreds of feet of PVC pipe and sprinklers were gone.
so, during an “on site” auction or estate sale, you can sell things you never even thought of.

Thanks John, I think for most of these things that would be the way to go. I’ll post whatever people request in a day or so otherwise. Thanks

that will work great Patrick.
like mentioned in the other threads – good clear photos of the name plates.
if they work or not, any issues that you see
and keep it strictly to woodworking tools and machines.
and from the list, post what people are honestly interested in.
especially for items that you can ship yourself. IF you are willing to pack and ship.
just asking for generic prices for your items is not really a good idea.
prices will be all over the map. what may be $500 in Florida or New Mexico,
may bring only $100 in Rhode Island. (and vice versa),
all the best,
John
