What is a personal property donation?

Estate or Personal Property donations are a means of contributing personal property items such as furniture, artwork, decor, jewelry, vehicles, etc. to a 501(c)(3) charity or organization in order to support their cause while receiving a tax benefit in return. You can do this for your own personal property, or on behalf of a inherited estate, etc. Estate donations usually contain far more items than your typical clothing or book donation and are intended to get rid of as many household contents as possible. In most cases, completely emptying the home is the desired outcome of an estate donation.


Why Donate?

Why do most people donate their personal property? In short, estate donations are a terrific way to disposition your items quickly without the hassle of trying to sell everything. They are the best way to dispose of your items quickly while guaranteeing the return value in the form of a tax deduction. Not to mention how many individuals and families you can help with much needed items! In addition, you will also be helping to protect the environment by keeping these useful items out of landfills. It’s a win for everyone!

When should you complete your donation?

Timing is everything in life, and so is the scheduling of your donation! Most people look to schedule their estate donation around the same time they are selling their home. These are the three scheduling scenarios that usually work best:


Typically for overly cluttered or hoarder homes in which your realtor has suggested you empty.


You have a buyer in place and have secured a purchase agreement. The Estate Pros conduct the estate donation and cleanout, emptying the home within a week or two before closing. The closing occurs and you turn the keys over to the new homeowner.


The home is sold and closed on, you’ve secure a predetermined move out date post closing (leaseback or rental term). The Estate Pros conduct the estate donation and empty the home within a week or two of your move out date. The house is clean and empty. You can move out and turn the keys over to the new homeowner.


How to prepare for an estate donation and cleanout

Having a well thought out plan is important to having a successful estate donation. Here are some preliminary steps to consider before donating.

  1. Take an inventory of the home. A thorough inventory and search of the home will begin preparing you for your donation.
  2. Remove any personal or sensitive items that you don’t want to donate. If it’s something personal or valuable that you don’t want to donate, removing or securing it is essential.
  3. Photograph the contents. A cataloged reference, either in photo or in video format, can serve as documentary evidence of the donation should it be necessary.
  4. Try and stay organized and create lists if necessary.
  5. Partially organizing and cleaning up the home is helpful.
  6. Throw away as much of the trash or unusable items as possible. An initial decluttering will make the donation process much easier.
  7. Know what you want to donate. Clearly identifying the scope of your project to the Estate Pros will make the donation process a lot smoother.
  8. If you have prior appraisals for any of your items, let the Estate Pros know, we can assess these evaluations for accuracy and use them to determine potential final appraisal values.

What Our Clients are Saying

Estate Love was very helpful and professional. Will use them again.
One of the most amazing companies we've ever worked with. My wife needed somebody to help her with her mother's estate, and these gentlemen and ladies create a protective environment for her in her fragile time; they did everything and went over and above to make it seamlessly stress free. I recommend them with the highest degree of confidence.
Great company, great service, great people, great job! The Estate Pros are best in class! Thanks folks!
The Estate Pros are top notch! We were working on a very limited time schedule and they were able to come in and get everything done quickly, efficiently and professionally. Everything went very smoothly, great work!
My brother in law passed away earlier this year and we were having such a difficult time with everything. Especially dealing with his house, his personal belongings, etc. We approached the concept of an estate sale with great trepidation, not knowing what to expect but Jonathan and the team at the Estate Pros put us at ease and made the process seamless and stress- free. They are very compassionate and professional. Thank you Jonathan!
Jonathan was great to work with in helping to prepare my father's townhome for sale. He recently moved into an assisted living facility, and anything from the townhome that couldn't go with him was meticulously catalogued and valuated, then arranged for pickup and donated to charity. Highly recommend for anyone in southeast Michigan!
It was such a pleasure working with Estate Love. They made everything so easy. It was an emotional experience for me but Estate Love made me feel so comfortable and at ease about the entire thing. Payment was super easy. Same day! I was very impressed and would absolutely recommend them to family and friends!
Incredibly professional. Understands antiques which I found many estate sales people don’t. Answers any questions in a timely manner. Massively patient with customers & his clients alike. He just knows what he is doing. He has excellent relationship with Habitat & the junk man if you need everything gone. It can be an emotional experience for the client & he makes you feel good about the experience. Follow up paperwork is excellent too.
Excellent and professional, Jonathan and his team went above and beyond to protect my home and items and to get the best possible prices for me. I highly recommend Estate Love!!
We had a wonderful experience with Jonathan and his staff. They made us feel secure, comfortable and informed throughout the entire process of holding an estate sale after the death of my parents. From the initial meeting to the final clean up, Estate Love treated us with the upmost respect and professionalism. Our sale was wildly successfully. If you are looking for an estate sale PRO, then Jonathan is your man...go ahead and hire him! Thank you!
Had a great experience with Jonathan and the team at Estatelove! Very polite, caring, truly professional and efficient. We trusted him with our home and possessions and he cared for it as though it was his own. Our sale and experience couldn’t have gone any better! We highly recommend EstateLove and would definitely use them again. You’ll be in good hands, and we can’t stress that enough!
Awesome company. Did everything top notch. I would recommend them to anyone.
Jonathan and his team were amazing. From the start, Jonathan was responsive, professional, and a pleasure to work with. His marketing is the best in the area. Our house was packed with wanting buyers all three days. His team was sympathetic to what we were going through and gave us found precious items that were missed. I highly recommend him and his team if you are shopping around for an estate sale company.
Johnathan was the best! He explained the Estate Sale process very clearly, set up and priced every item, was present on the property for the entire sale, arranged for donation pickup of unsold items, and of course was very courteous and helpful. We were extremely pleased with the results of the sale and would highly recommend him and his team for your Estate Sale!! Julie &Sami Akroush
great work!!
Estate Love is a business with a heart. Jonathan and the Estate Love team are fantastic. This is an interesting industry. It is important to trust the Estate Sale company you choose. Thankfully, out of the many companies I interviewed and researched, the choice was obvious. Jonathan stood out positively from the very start. He was easy to work with and had some great ideas which made a super successful sale. Jonathan is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and professional. He gained my trust and I would highly recommend his company.It is always emotionally difficult to sell your prized possessions and family heirlooms but Jonathan was there for me every step of the way.Knowing he was caring for my home in the same way I would while the sale was in progress allowed for me to breathe easier. Jonathan, Jay and the other Estate Love personnel were polite and very willing to help in all areas of the sale. After the sale was completed, I had several shoppers tell me how wonderfully they were treated during the sale. This is the other very important part of having a successful sale (and one most people don't think about until it's too late). Jonathan has a great following of fans that frequent his sales and it is obvious that number grows with each new estate sale he runs. Honesty, trust and integrity are extremely important qualities which were all demonstrated by Estate Love.
Very good peoples and nice honest service.You can buy with confidence and trust .Sells very nice and appropriate products at good price and in friendly environment
Estate Love is just want you want from an estate sale company. Jonathan made what could be have been a stressful time into something positive and worry-free. Estate Love is professional, provides great follow-through and communication throughout the process, and ultimately got top $$$ for our items. If you are looking for an estate sale company, don’t hesitate to hire Estate Love. They will do a wonderful job for you!
Amazing company. Very social and helpful. Would so recommend for anyone needing help.
Jonathan and the Estate Love team are best in class. From our initial meeting it was apparent I had made the correct choice selecting them to handle our estate sale. Jonathan along with Jay and the other Estate Love personnel were knowledgeable, polite and very willing to help in all areas of the sale. A significant number of the furnishing were sold by Jonathan prior to the start of the sale. The sale was exceptionally well organized and promoted which ultimately resulted in exceeding our sales expectations. Additionally we were provided with a charity that was willing to take unsold pieces and a junk removal company to dispose of the unwanted items. Honesty, trust and integrity are extremely important qualities which were all demonstrated by Estate Love. At the end of the sale we received a spread sheet of the sold items. Base on my personal experience I highly recommend Estate Love to handle your estate sale.
