May the Fourth from all of us at MaxSold

Star Wars Estate Sale items sold on MaxSold

May the Fourth. To some, just a date. To others, a celebration of one of the most iconic movie franchises to ever exist. For the uninitiated, the date is a play on the famous line “May the Force be with you”, which debuted in the first Star Wars film and has been spoken in every movie since. May the Fourth has ‘officially’ become known as Star Wars day, and even has it’s own wiki page!

Not only is May important to Star Wars fans because it it gives us the opportunity to say “May the Fourth Be With You”, but George Lucas celebrates his birthday (14th) and in 1977 the first Star Wars film was released (May 25, 1977)

Star Wars is a much celebrated phenomenon here at MaxSold as well, we have many employees who admittedly follow the movies and can name off all their favourite characters (Yoda anyone?), we have also sold hundreds of Star Wars related items as part of a Downsizing Sale or Estate Sales, some of them include…

April was a thrill for all of us at MaxSold with memorable Estate Sale and Downsizing highlights across Canada and the US.

Monieson Estate Contents will be up for Online Auction on MaxSold

85 King St East has long been one of Kingston’s premiere addresses. The Gothic stone home and courtyard from the year 1877 was the home of the late David and Lois Monieson for the past 50 years.

85 King Street West Kingston

Mr Monieson was a renowned marketing guru after whom the Monieson Research Centre at Queen’s University was named. In addition to his considerable academic influence, Monieson sat on numerous industry boards and or consulted rStained Glass Windowsegularly such as the Ontario Hog Marketing Board, Warner Lambert, General Electric, and others.

Mrs. Lois Monieson was a student of sociology and influenced the thoughts of her husband on various issues. Lois was a noted and well respected quilter. Mr Monieson died in 1990. Mrs Monieson passed in late 2014. Their son Phillip survives them and has chosen local innovator and modernStairway Statue online marketer MaxSold to sell the bulk of contents from the estate.

“Everything must go” said estate agent Alicia Gordon of Gordon’s Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage. “We were proud to be selected by Mr Monieson to look after the sale of his home and management of the estate”.


MaxSold CEO Sushee Perumal commented “It’s an honour to be connected in any way with a family that made such a historical mark in marketing.”

Mr Monieson senior constantly reminded his students that academic theory must be closely connected to practical application to be relevant.

March 2015 Top Sellers in MaxSold Estate and Downsizing Online Auctions

March flew by with the excitement and variety typical for MaxSold.

We had our usual gorgeous art, pristine collectibles, antiques and everyday items (and vehicles) in March, but throughout the month there were memorable highlights which include the business clearance of a Toronto landmark with “1960s modernism”, superb online auctions in Fairfax Station (Washington DC Metro) and in Maryland, several in the New York Tri-State and in Ontario. We also had fundraising online auctions to support the military and the Cancer Center.

The biggest highlight in March was an estate appraised at $2300 which sold for more than $17,000 with MaxSold. Appraisals miss the mark on more than 80% of value that can only be recovered with the MaxSold mechanism that maximizes exposure through promotions which include traditional and social media channels (we crossed 17,600 fans on Facebook!).

Increasing Quality of Life, and Saving Money for Seniors and their Caregivers

There has been a rise in number of companies providing at-home care to reduce the burden on the enormous and rising assisted living and nursing home costs. There’s even a service called MDHomeCall where the doctor makes visits to homes instead of seniors making trips to busy Emergency Rooms. The MDHomeCall service saves tax payers hundreds of dollars per visit, and saves seniors and their caregivers considerable time and effort – possibly even saving lives!

When seniors choose to stay at home, they need health aids such as motorized beds, wheel chair lifts, railway elevators and mobility scooters. These essential devices cost thousands of dollars, reflecting a huge burden on already stretched budgets of seniors and their caregivers trying to maintain independence at home.

There are government subsidies available, but covering only up-to 75% (in certain jurisdictions) and are determined on a case by case basis requiring appointments, paperwork and long waits. Need a second unit to keep at a caregiver’s home or at your adult children’s home when you visit grandchildren, or when one needs repair? Subsidies don’t cover that.

MaxSold finds new homes for practically everything from a downsizing sale and estate sale including electric beds, railway elevators, scooters, walkers and blood pressure monitors. For the thousands of buyers who’ve used our service to buy health aids from MaxSold, they help increase independence and maintain a comfortable quality of day-to-day living. For sellers who have used MaxSold, there is value to be recovered, and the guilt in sending it to a dump is alleviated.  Below are some of medical aids sold on MaxSold with examples of retail prices (before subsidies) and what they sold for on MaxSold.

Caregiver financial aids from government agencies and not-for-profit organizers do exist.  However it requires work to find them and time to get qualified. There are a number of products to make life easier for the seniors and caregivers, and the government programs gives you access to only a few of those.

Next time you are in the need for a health aid product, take a look at MaxSold, use the search feature, and sign-up for eNewsletters.  If anyone requires a downsize or estate settlement, hire MaxSold for maximum value recovery – next to nothing ends up unsold with MaxSold.

Summary: Medical Alert Devices That Can Help Keep Seniors Safe

More and more people over the age of 75 and older are choosing to remain in their homes. The desire to maintain independence is completely natural but it can also cause their children to worry for their parents’ safety and comfort. You can make your parents’ home far safer and provide comfort by investing in devices specifically designed to provide solutions for your safety worries.  These innovative devices address some of the most common concerns facing caregivers today including worries about elderly parents:

  • burning themselves while cooking, or forgetting to turn the stove off and start a fire
  • forgetting to take their medications or mix up their prescriptions
  • letting the shower get too hot and get burnt
  • fall and not be able to get up

Summary: Aging in Place Gadgets

Today there are a variety of medical alert systems available, covering a range of prices and styles, to help keep seniors safe. Medical alert systems that connect to a 24-hour emergency monitoring service are the most prevalent. The Philips Lifeline Medical Alert Service, which costs $35 a month plus an additional $82 start-up fee, is one of the most popular choices. The transmitter can be worn as a pendant on a necklace or as a bracelet. A no-fee medical alert device that doesn’t come with a professional monitoring service provides a great alternative for those looking for a lower priced option. These devices, similar to the 24-hour emergency monitoring service products, also come with a “SOS” button and a home base station that connects to a home phone line. The device will dial pre-programmed numbers one by one from the personal contact list until there is a connection. There are several mobile products available on the market that can be used outside of the home allowing seniors to call for help from anywhere. These devices have GPS tracking capabilities and fit into the palm of your hand. To call for help is easy- With a push of a button a trained operator will be online to provide assistance. The GPS technology allows the emergency monitoring service to know the exact location of the call saving critical time.
