We Recycle, Upcycle, and Put Money in Your Pocket

Estate sales are popular with northern Michigan residents and visitors to the Traverse City area.

Property Cleanout Michigan can help you offset the cost of your cleanout and maximize profits from your estate sale by reselling select items for you. You keep the majority of the proceeds once your services are paid for, and you may even make money on your cleanout! Eligible, high-quality items that don’t sell are donated to local charities.

Absolutely recommend. Professional and kind throughout a very messy situation. Went above and beyond dealing with a Park that isn't responsive and a village office that's not the most helpful. Even more tricky as I am now out-of-state. Estimate was well below others and final bill stayed same, no last minute up charging.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE! I cannot say enough about how incredibly awesome this company is! The company owner, Vince Dontje, provided excellent communication throughout the entire process. Vince coordinated a buyer for many household items prior to the Property Cleanout. The team arrived promptly as scheduled, were very respectful, professional and efficient. Many household items and furniture were donated to a charitable organization (with receipt) and tools/hardware were donated to a Veterans Association (also received an electronic "thank you" from the organization). No other company in the area offered this level of service and professionalism. The team also swept, vacuumed and blew the leaves out of the yard. They went above and beyond the level of service we expected. I recommend them highly and without reservation!

As a Realtor, I met Vince years ago and have referred him ever since to my clients and to other real estate agents in need of estate or property cleanout services. He and his crew do an amazing job! Vince is professional and hard working. He came to the rescue just last week with one of my properties and allowed us to close on time. Not sure what we would have done without his help. Highly recommend!

Property Cleanout Michigan cleaned a relative’s home for me through an estate. Communication was excellent, the Cleanout was thorough, and the house was left in very good condition with floors swept and vacuumed when needed. I would highly recommend this company.

Vince, Denise and crew did an amazing job for my mother who needed to move into a retirement home, but had a big, full house, barn, garage & workshop. Before we found them, we struggled for months with an estate auction, yard sales, multiple trips to donation centers, was exhausting. Until Property Cleanout came in and finished the job in one day at an extremely reasonable price! They even sold her truck for her without commission. It was very important to my mom to have her things treated with respect, recycled, scrapped, sold and donated instead of all going into a landfill, and that is exactly what they did. They will handle EVERYTHING! Don't make the mistake we did by wasting months trying to do such a big job on your own; trust Property Cleanout and you will be very happy that you did! We highly recommend them, and they service all of Michigan.
