FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will you buy my Ethan Allen?
Where's EARTHJUNK'S headquarters?
What are your hours?
Why do I need an appointment?
Reason 2 Not all inventory is quickly accessible. EARTHJUNK’S inventory is dispersed among 7 other buildings. Inventory not in our showrooms at Carriage House takes time to locate and move out of crowded storage areas not accessible to customers. When you make your appointment, we get the pieces you want to purchase over to Carriage House for your inspection. Carriage House is located right on Highway 183 and features easy access for loading your furniture.
Reason 3 Appointments prevent missed connections. Years ago, Canada buyers drove to Sargent without telling us. We were not even in Nebraska. They were mad and we were sad. We implemented appointment requests at that time to avoid a repeat occurrence. We do not want to disappoint our customers.

How much do appraisals cost?
Appraisals document replacement costs for insurance companies, document valuation for income tax purposes when donating furniture to charities (ask with your tax consultant) or establish divorce/estate dispersal.
Appraisals average 3 hours of time for one item and cost 34.99 if purchased directly from EARTHJUNK. If you have 6 matching chairs, we charge 34.99 for all the matching chairs not $34.99 per chair. We reduce the appraisal per item charge for dining room, living room or bedroom suites. Email for details if you have entire sets. We do not purchase items we appraise.
Will you appraise my items for free?
No. We charge the customer for only 2 hours. However, appraisals take 2 to 6 hours start to finish. The employee that enjoys this job, does not work for free. We do not make money on this service. We break even if the appraisal is finished In 2 hours. Past 2 hours, we absorb the hourly cost to assist our customer with problems we all experience at some point in life’s journey. The past 5 years, the popular appraisal service has run in the red.
