Personal Property

Large items which cannot easily be shipped (such as farm equipment and vehicles) must be local (within 60 miles) so that we can arrange affordable transportation to our location. However smaller items that may be insured and shipped such as jewelry, art work, antiques or collectibles may be sent from almost anywhere.
