However, there can also be some unusual pieces, like caskets and life size mechanical clowns that make you say “How Did That Get There?”

MaxSold, the fastest growing Estate and Downsizing sales company in North America, recently created a video and a list of the Top 10 Weirdest Things Sold At An Estate Sale highlighting some really weird items throughout the years at their online estate sales.

Some highlights:

●    A 3000 lbs Anchor
●    A Large Rusted Chicken Plucker
●    A 6’5” Predator Statue Made Out of Car Parts
●    A Life Size Mechanical Clown

“Downsizing or organizing a traditional estate sale can be a stressful experience, especially for seniors.” says Sushee Perumal, CEO of MaxSold. MaxSold’s founder Barry Gordon, a second generation auctioneer, inducted into the National Auctioneers Hall of Fame, noted that, “Many online auction companies and estate sale providers cherry pick what they believe to be the nicer items, not solving the problem for the client. However, MaxSold lists everything – from a chicken plucker to fine art – to maximize both clear out and net sale value through competitive bidding within tight real estate timelines.”
