Home / Estate Clear Out

Separate the treasures from the trash


Many people find home & estate clear outs emotionally draining. There are so many memories attached to the contents of a home and while they may not have monetary value, many pieces have emotional value that cannot be measured.

Topcat works directly with homeowners, family members, lawyers or estate trustees to clear a property as quickly and efficiently as possible. We approach the clear out with the utmost sensitivity and respect to ensure that every client is comfortable throughout the entire process of getting a home completely ready for new owners.

We utilize our extensive network to extract maximum value for your contents and to find new homes for as many of the pieces as possible.

Our home and estate clear out services include thorough and sensitive content review as we:

  • Remove debris or non-sellable items;
  • Empty challenging spaces like attics, garages and crawl-spaces;
  • Oversee independent appraisals, liquidation and auction services;
  • Identify vital documents and valuables that should be saved;
  • Arrange disposition of unwanted items and donations to charities;
  • Pack and ship items to heirs as designated by a will.
“We hired Topcat to manage the clear out of an inherited family home. It was a huge job and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I was most impressed with Karen’s organizational skills; she kept track of every detail and did everything on a tight timeline and within our budget.
Although Topcat’s services paid for themselves, Karen had the insight to bring in an antique dealer for a few discarded items and the dealer gave us $1400 for them! I would highly recommend Topcat’s services to anyone, anytime.”
