Downsizing: What To Do With An Opium Bed in Scottsdale, Arizona?

By , in PR PR World on .

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 2, 2018 – When Elaine Frost's friends Jim and Lori from Scottsdale called her in Toronto, Canada she was surprised by the purpose of the call. “We were hoping you could help us with our downsize,” said Lori.  Elaine, a retired Senior Move Manager, specializes in helping people downsize and was happy to help.

The big issue they wanted help with?  “We weren't sure what to do with all our excess stuff,” said Jim.  A quick search about what do with stuff from major news organizations revealed one key theme – nobody wants the excess stuff. The traditional estate sale process is highly intrusive. Auction companies cherry pick, leaving clients stranded with the rest. “It's a disheartening reality for my clients when they realize their adult children do not need, want or have room for their precious items,” said Mai Thompson (member of NASMM), a Certified Senior Move Manager and owner of local downsizing and moving company Smooth Transitions Phoenix East Valley.

Elaine had a unique solution for Jim and Lori to consider. “In Toronto, I work with MaxSold, a unique company that finds members of the local community who see value in excess items. The local community then bids on the opportunity to remove the items on Jim and Lori's timeline. The MaxSold process is quite magical when you consider its finality while recovering value on 98% of all items (on average),” said Elaine who was pleased about MaxSold's launch in the Phoenix, Arizona metro.

“This is an excellent and fun solution to the challenge of downsizing!” said Ian, the first bidder to help Jim and Lori by participating in the unique online auction. “MaxSold reviews helped ease my uncertainty.”

Jim and Lori's items are available for online bidding by the community with local pickup on Saturday, Feb 10th from 9am to 12pm.  Check out the Opium Bed and more at
