Angies List is not like Craigslist - though commonly confused - there is no marketplace for selling items.

Auction Services would be the normal Search the List category for this - and Auto - Sales for the vehicles. Many (or maybe most) auction services do not do vehicle sales because ofthe extra licensing and registration and goodness of title issues, so commonly those are sold through a specialty vehicle sales broker/auctioneer (would be under the Auto - Sales category if listed on Angies List). Or of course sell them yourselves on the open market or to a used vehicle dealer.

There are also (no Angies List category for this aside from possible listing in Auction Services) Estate Appraisal/Sales brokers who will take an entire estate or all of someone's possessions and sell them - either directly, at estate auction, or through specialty brokers or auctioneers commonly for real estate, boats, aircraft, vehicles and high value jewelry and artwork. This would commonly be the type you want if you have to move away and will not be around during the advertising and sale process - they (and people like auto brokers and realtors working with them) can handle the entire process with minimal input (basically just sales document dignatures) from you - some are probate attorney firms, some not.

For the amount of stuff you are implying, assuing it is in a house or large apartment, they may do an on-site sale (which would also give you an opportunity to showcase the vehicles outside if considering selling them yourself). For smaller amounts and for vehicles and such auctioneers take it to their auction facility to sell at their regularly scheduled auctions.

Be sure to weed out the stuff you want to save before turning it over, because try to reclaim anything after the contract is signed and the dealer/auctioneer is generally entitled to his commission and buyers premium on the value of anything you pull out of the sale. And of course be sure stuff not to be sold is fully segregated from the sale items and locked away in separate room or garage or something, because during a sale you cannot keep you eye on everything to be sure it does not walk away or end up being sold.
