Buying Process

We offer our clients a simplified process of selling furniture and estate items. When you work with BCET, you’re choosing a third-generation antique dealer with over 35 years of industry experience. Our outright purchase includes safe removal, packaging, and trucking from your location (in most cases). We buy outright and pay fair market value.

Once we receive your submission, we will begin a review process to research and determine the value of the items and be in contact with you. You will receive a response from us, whether or not we choose to purchase your items. Our typical response time is a week. Please note with the influx of inquiries there may be a delay in response time.

If we are interested in your items, we will send you a detailed purchase offer of the items we are interested in purchasing, with the total dollar amount we are offering for the items, along with the cost of shipping. We do not give itemized pricing on our purchase offers.

Once the offer is accepted, we will work with you to schedule our fully insured and professional moving team to come to your home. Unless other arrangements are made, payment is issued by mail after items are received back at the showroom.
Once your items arrive at our showroom, they are lovingly cleaned and, if necessary, repaired prior to photographing and displaying in our showroom and on our website.
