Selling Your Estate Collection, Single Piece, or Consignment

Should Not Be a Challenge


Many options are available to you as a large, small, or single-piece collector.

“Without the trust and expert knowledge, you need to feel comfortable making the right decision, it’s going to cost you and your family. We’re so grateful we made the decision to sell the collection to CSA Guns!”

– Jerold G. & family

Plan Ahead

We know discussing the dispersal of your collection can be extremely difficult, and you may have spent years, building a collection. It’s this difficulty that makes this matter an important one to handle in advance, so everyone has peace of mind. In the case of firearms, estate collections, or concerns about the health of your loved one where essential safety considerations are involved, planning will ease the burden and save a great deal of worry, time, and money.

Pre-planning – whether it’s immediate cash needs or long-term wishes, understand your options and benefits

Do Nothing

All too common and has negative consequences

  • – It wastes valuable time, and the piece or collection may be sold in haste and not a fair value.
  • – If items have been bequeathed informally to family, doing “nothing” does not ensure they will receive them.
  • – Items may accidentally be sold, given to family members who don’t care about them, or be a source of conflict.
  • – Doing nothing is the worst possible option for those left to sort out the final affairs.

*An easy 30-minute call or in person consultation will take the stress out of wondering what to expect.
