Online auction company, MaxSold.com, helps Canadians donate funds
TORONTO, April 30, 2013 /CNW/ - There's a new way to help fund the fight against cancer while selling household items due to relocation, downsizing or an estate sale, and it's thanks to online auction company MaxSold.com.
Starting immediately, net proceeds from MaxSold.com auctions can be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
"On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, I am thrilled to welcome MaxSold in the fight against cancer. This innovative online auction service offers a unique opportunity for MaxSold customers to make a contribution to the Society. We are grateful to MaxSold for offering this service as yet another way our supporters can join in the fight for life," said Ontario Division CEO, Martin Kabat.
The 'Donate Your Goods' program is a cross-Canada initiative launched this month by MaxSold.com and the Canadian Cancer Society. It's a quick and easy way to turn unwanted household items into cash, and then donate the net proceeds to the Canadian Cancer Society. MaxSold clients will receive tax receipts within six to eight weeks of their sale.
"We're proud to partner with the Canadian Cancer Society and support their important programs. We all know someone whose life has been affected by cancer. This is a way for MaxSold to help fund the fight," noted Sushee Perumal, CEO, MaxSold Inc.
Here's how the MaxSold.com service works:
- Homeowner contacts www.MaxSold.com advising of need to sell some or all of their household contents
- Unlike Kijiji, Craigslist and eBay - the company catalogues, photographs and posts all objects online for auction and conducts intense marketing to get top bids for items, including: online ads; social media marketing; newspaper ads; and, lawn signs
- The company deals with all potential buyers
- The company collects all payments from buyers and arranges all pick-ups of items over a two to three hour window
The entire process usually lasts two weeks.
The company charges a percentage of revenue from the sale of goods, subject to minimums.
MaxSold has partnered with, and is endorsed by, The Accredited Senior Agent (ASA) program, Canada's largest group of realtors specialized in the needs of seniors.
MaxSold is the easiest and quickest way to turn unwanted household contents into cash. This innovative new service can sell practically everything in the house in two weeks with competitive bidding and full tracking of every item. With over 400 auctions to date, MaxSold comes highly recommended by seniors, professional organizers and real estate agents.
