<p>These are trying and scary times for each and everyone of us.&nbsp; Businesses are having to close - people are losing their jobs - and we all are trying to survive in unknown territory.&nbsp; We, who conduct estate sales, have had to step back - look at what is happening and make some decisions about how we go forward.&nbsp; As I write this, we are just entering April - and many states are on a &#39;stay at home&#39; order - practicing safe distancing in order to help fight this horrible virus and protect each other.</p> <p>Currently, I am under contract to conduct 4 estate sales - but due to what is happening, I have decided that until we are all safe from this virus, I will not be conducting those sales until all threat of this virus is gone.&nbsp; EstateSales.NET just today made a decision to not advertise any estate sales - whether by appointment or other - in the States who have the &#39;stay at home&#39; order until that order is lifted.&nbsp; I think this was the best decision for all of us. Alabama is one of those States.&nbsp;</p> <p>What does this mean for you&nbsp;who have sold your home and need to dispose of items?&nbsp; Or have had a death in the family? Or for someone like me who usually can handle these situations?&nbsp; It is something we all are going to have to figure out.&nbsp; I would encourage anyone needing to have a sale immediately to contact me.&nbsp; Together we can hopefully come up with a solution to your problem.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Finally, there is an old saying:&nbsp; &quot;when the going gets tough.......the tough gets going.&quot;&nbsp; That is where we all are right now.&nbsp; We are all in this together.&nbsp; We need to take care of ourselves, our family, our friends and our community.&nbsp; Please stay safe and know that we WILL get through this.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
