No, we don’t buy all of the furniture. You have to understand that a cupboard you bought some years ago at a Swedish furniture dealer in Pratteln, unfortunately has no value as soon as it is dismantled. Only with antiques, there we can estimate whether a restoration is worthwhile or not.

Moreover, large cupboards and beds are often too specific to the apartment and can be very difficult to sell. Storing these items temporarily only makes sense for designer furniture, where the storage costs do not exceed the value of the item. For most standard furniture pieces, it’s often more practical to dispose it, rather than incurring ongoing storage expenses and try to sell it online.

Example: one of our partners can resell a very well-preserved table with 6 matching chairs in his shop, and he provides us with one or two persons for «x hours». We can credit you that and this will reduce the final costs of a clearance. Nevertheless, costs remain of course for: personnel for disposal, transport and disposal fees.

Yes! You should mention this at the initial contact so that we can promptly tap into our network of art historians and appraisers who regularly collaborate with us. The more information we receive from you at the outset, the better we can determine whom to call upon (everyone has their specialties in this area).

Empty and broom-clean. All lamps, nails, and screws removed.

The amount of costs depends on the quantity of household items to be disposed of, as well as the access routes, the location of the property (slope, ground), and the access within the property. The type of household also influences the costs, as disposal costs can vary depending on the type of waste. The costs for clearing the apartment are borne by the owner of the household items. In the event of death, these are the heirs.


To fulfill this, it is common to offset the value of still saleable items against the disposal costs of items that are no longer usable. The basis for calculating the costs of apartment clearance usually relies on property inspections.

To provide you with an accurate cost estimate or a fixed-price offer, we conduct a house visit with you. It is best if you have already taken everything you want to keep, allowing us to plan during the inspection where items will be donated. Afterward, we will present you with a quote for personnel, transportation, and disposal.

Yes, sometimes it is cheaper because it is much faster. However, it does not align with our values. We do not want to dispose of a sofa that could still be used for another good 5 years, which was worked hard for or perhaps was a gift from the children. Additionally, it conserves resources and the environment. For the sake of the environment, we also work with a recycling mindset and sort wood, paper, cardboard, construction debris, etc.

Art appraisal is a complex process conducted by qualified experts to determine the value of an artwork. The process involves several steps:

  1. 1. Research and Documentation: The appraiser begins by gathering comprehensive information about the artwork, including details about the artist, creation period, technique, provenance, and historical sales of the work.
  2. 2. Style Analysis: A thorough examination of the artwork’s style is crucial. The expert considers the artistic features, techniques, and influences that shape the artist’s style.
  3. 3. Comparison with Similar Works: The appraiser compares the artwork to other works by the same artist and similar pieces from the same period. This helps provide a better estimate of the market value.
  4. 4. Condition Assessment: The physical condition of the artwork is of great importance. Any damages, restorations, or signs of wear are analyzed as they can influence the value.
  5. 5. Market Research: An analysis of the current art market is essential. The expert considers recent auction results, selling prices of comparable works, and trends in the art market.
  6. 6. Utilization of Expert Network: Art appraisers can tap into a network of experts and professionals to obtain specific expertise on particular artists, styles, or periods.
  7. 7. Consideration of Supply and Demand: The art market is heavily influenced by supply and demand. A highly sought-after artist or specific art movement can increase the value.
  8. 8. Documentation of the Appraisal Process: The appraiser documents the entire process, including all factors that led to the valuation. This documentation serves as the basis for the appraisal and is important for the client.

In summary, the process of art appraisal relies on a combination of expertise, experience, thorough research, and comprehensive analysis of various factors to determine a realistic market value for the artwork.
