A.H. Wilkens works with lawyers, trust officers and executors to provide the services needed in dealing with an estate. We offer appraisals on personal property, estate or probate, family division, fair market and insurance. We help to identify and separate the property into two categories: that which is saleable through auction and that which can be donated. We work closely with reliable moving companies to facilitate the move and the disposal of goods.
We also provide “Peace of Mind” coverage. The day of the move, a member of the A.H. Wilkens staff will come to the property to oversee the pack and move. In our experience, this is the time when things of interest are discovered in drawers, cupboards and basements. It is our job to make sure that these items of interest are brought to the attention of the estate and dealt with accordingly.
All estate items brought in on consignment are clearly inventoried in our permanent downtown location. Estates are sold off quickly; each auction is paid out within thirty days and entire estates are reconciled within four months. We strive to make the auction process as efficient and seamless as possible while always making sure that we are accessible to answer any questions or resolve any issues throughout the process.
