Estate Cleanouts and Estate Sales in Michigan

We take the time, you reap the benefits

A Michigan estate cleanout is typically needed when homeowners are radically downsizing, or when a loved one passes away or needs to live in a supported environment. It's a sensitive time, and an estate cleanout and sale is just one piece in a more complex situation.

The typical estate sale company requires the homeowner or their family to first clean out the property. Then the estate or tag sale company assesses whether the home's contents are "worth" a sale, with much of the "value" based on the perceived number of high-ticket items and how quickly and easily the estate sale company can execute the sale. They don't make money unless the sale is a success, so prospective clients can be turned away easily to limit the risk of an unprofitable event.


A Better Way to Handle Estate Cleanouts and Estate Sales

Our model is different - and better for our customers. Because we're already doing your estate cleanout, our knowledgeable staff will automatically see and catalog your salable items right away. If there is enough to warrant an estate sale that can at least offset the cost of your cleanout, we'll hold the sale, including selling individual items online when that's the best way to get the most revenue for them.

If your estate sale generates more than you paid for your cleanout after normal expenses, we'll take a reasonable service fee and reimburse your full cleanout cost - the net profit belongs to you!

On every estate cleanout, we recycle or donate all eligible items. ​

Trust Property Cleanout Michigan LLC to handle your estate cleanout promptly, professionally and with the excellent customer service for which we're known.

Let Us Handle Everything with an Estate Sale

Once your estate cleanout is complete, let Property Cleanout Michigan organize and execute your estate sale. You'll keep most of the revenue, and your clean out could end up being free or even turning a profit for you. If your estate cleanout reveals a large number of salable items, Property Cleanout Michigan LLC will hold an estate sale for you, taking care of all the details.

More money in your pocket

Most professional estate sales companies split revenue with clients 50/50. Not Property Cleanout Michigan! If we do your estate cleanout and estate sale, we first recoup the cost of your cleanout.

Any revenue beyond that cost is shared, with the customer receiving the majority.

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.
