About Naperville Traders

Who we are and what we do! Naperville Traders Estate Sales has provided Professional Estate Sales and Services in the Naperville, DuPage, Will, Kane, Grundy as well as Cook and Lake County for over 22 years and the need for a seasoned estate sale professional has never been greater. Our Team are experienced at Staging, Display, Merchandising, Organization, Research and Pricing.  

We strive to bring our customers a variety of interesting sales so there is always something for everyone in an OrganizedShop Friendly and People Friendly approach. Naperville Traders Estate Sales offer our clients a valuable and trustworthy service that gets the job done. Our sales are like going to a Boutique or Specialty Store and we price every item in the home.

The anatomy of an estate sale has evolved over the past several years in the Chicago area. Typically when someone hears the words “Estate Sale” they assume someone has passed away, but this is not usually the case. Many individuals are simply Moving, Downsizing, Relocating to other States primarily in the South East, South West or West. They are not taking their belongings with them when they do move.  We have seen a 60% increase in Estate Sales in the Chicago area in the last few years due to COVID, Weather, Taxes and Home Prices surging.

The Baby Boomers are now in their mid to late sixties and retiring.  In addition, their parents’ generation are looking to move into a senior/independent living complex, assisted living or passing, so you have two generations looking for estate sale services at the same time.  Also the Millennials have started Families and are looking to furnish their homes in the Suburbs as well as the City of Chicago.

Conducted Estate Sales

Early Bird Gets the Worm

Savvy Estate Sale shoppers will often arrive early to sign the Sign-Up List so they can enter the home before other Estate Sale Shoppers.  Online Estate Sale Customers are ready to submit their purchase requests right at 9:00 AM on the First Day of the Online Estate Sale.

Estate Sale Hours

.  Our hours will vary for In-Person Sales and Online Estate Sales.  In-Person Sales will Start Friday or Saturday at 9:00 AM -3:00 PM and Sunday’s from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM  Online Estate Sales will be 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM Thursday – Sunday. Pick-Up Days are usually Sunday and Monday or we can arrange delivery, shipping or bring items to another location.

First come first served

We are continuing to do both In-Person and Online Estate Sales depending on the Home, Location, Gated or Restrictive Neighborhoods that don’t allow Estate Sales or when determined by Naperville Traders or our Estate Sale Client. In either case, it is always recommended to arrive early to our Estate Sale Location or Online.

Weather

All our In-Person Estate Sales are conducted Rain or Shine, Online Estate Sales are not hindered by the Weather such as Snow or Rain.  You shop from your Phone, iPad or computer.  It’s fun, safe and you get the opportunity to see prices, descriptions, dimensions and Photos of the items without waiting in lines, wearing masks and Social Distancing in a house full of strangers.

Their home is your home

We also ask that you treat our customer’s home with the same courtesy you would your own home. Because there are typically a large number of breakable items on display at our sales, children need to be closely supervised, and for safety reasons we cannot allow strollers into our estate sales.

Beautiful Photos

We stress great photography for both In-Person and Online Estate Sales.  We take several  photos of an item from all angles to give you the best image possible, along with detailed descriptions and dimensions to give you both perspective and  scale for Online Sales.

Amazing staff

Our staff is dedicated to providing the best experience at our In-Person Estate Sales as well with Curbside Pick-up, for our Online Estate Sales, assisting with loading your purchases and answer any of your questions.  If you have interest in any items still available at Pick-Up we can  bring items to you.

All Sales are Final

However, we understand if an item does not meet your expectations.  We can give you credit toward another item or provide a full or partial refund.  We try to test all items, we also will mention  any issues or flaws we see.
