What is the difference between an "Estate Sale" and a "garage sale"?
Almost everyone has a "garage sale" at one time or another... we all need to do some spring cleaning or just convert excess items we no longer want or need into some ready cash. Usually the items sold are pretty much the leftover's.
By contrast at an Estate Sale we are selling most or all the possessions that have been acquired over a person's lifetime. This includes quality and often expensive items; Furniture, Appliances, Antiques, Fine China, Electronics, Hats and fine clothing, and often unusual and hard to find items.

Do you collect sales tax at Estate Sales and on consignments?
Yes, always with out exception - Texas Law requires that sales tax be collected on items sold at Estate Sales. Texas Pro On the Go collects tax at all Estate Sales. Our Sales Tax Certificate is displayed at all sales locations as required by law. In order to make it more convenient for the people shopping our sales, it is our policy to include the tax in the price of the item. A statement explaining this policy will be posted at each sale.

Can I return an item I purchased at one of your Estate Sales?
No - Items cannot be returned after purchase. All items are sole "as is", "where is". We make a good faith effort to represent every item accurately as to its age, condition and serviceability. HOWEVER; THERE IS NO WARRENTY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED ON ANY ITEM. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Do you change the date / time of a sales after it has been contracted or advertised?
Under special circumstances - Yes. We reserve the right to change the date(s), Time(s) and duration of a sale at our sole discretion. We are very concerned for the safety of our shoppers and for the preservation of our Client's property where a sale is being conducted. Dangerous weather conditions or problems with the setup of the sale, or other circumstances may require a sale to be postponed or the scheduled date(s) and time(s) changed. We may also close a sale early if we sell out. Should this happen we will notify our shoppers via e-mail, the web site and other media.
