About

B. Langston’s is a well established auction, moving and estate sale company, which has been in business since 1978.

How we do it?

The services we offer are a total package. From start to finish. From initial set up of the sale, to the final removal of all remaining items. Leaving you with a clean empty house. Other features which we offer:

  • Bonded Establishment
  • Provide Full Insurance
  • Compile Inventory Lists
  • Guaranteed Sales Revenue by Purchasing Entire Estate
  • Large Devoted Following

Why we do it?

As we know from being in a similar situation with my own mother and father, it is very hard emotionally, physically, not to mention a time consuming effort is required to liquidate a household. That’s where we can be part of a support team.
