Clear Out    Clean Up   

Downsizing can be tough...  the Velvet Cricket is here to help!

Letting go of beloved and prized possessions can be stressful -- mentally, physically and emotionally. From the daunting task of sorting what to keep and what to get rid of, to the wide range of emotions that go with reviewing treasured items and the sometimes complex logistics that must be coordinated.

The Velvet Cricket can help with the heavy lifting -- and help put more money in your wallet. We offer several ways to help you downsize your belongings -- from an entire project to just a few items. 


Our Services


Whether you're downsizing or cleaning out a loved one's home, the Velvet Cricket offers full or partial residential auctions. We can market items from homes, condos, apartments, commercial businesses, storage units, barns and more.

From an entire collection to a truckload, we can sell your items in our weekly online auctions. The Velvet Cricket staff handles every detail for you -- from professional item photography, description and marketing to buyer pick up and payment. Our local warehouse means you don't have to store auction items at your home or in storage. Exposure in our weekly Airport Road auctions and the buyer's ability to pre-view your items maximizes potential sales.
