How Does The ONLINE Auction Process Work?
Once we reach an agreement and a plan is in place, our professionals will facilitate what is necessary to help you get there. Each sale is customized to fit your needs specifically along with the needs of our buyers.
With an over 90% success rate of sale, you are sure to maximize your overall profit and have less items that you need to pay to have thrown out.
Our knowledgeable, trained team will come to your location, catalogue and photograph your items and upload them to our innovative online platform for a 14 day auction style sale period.
The online auction format opens your items up to a competitive bidding environment in which prices are determined by the consumer, and often exceed expectations due to unforeseeable factors, such as bidders willing to pay more for reasons such as convenience or nostalgia. Plus, the competitive and timed bidding environment tends to excite bidders and move prices upward at an unbelievable rate the last hour of the sale.
Our marketing team will ensure your items receive maximum exposure in the proper local and specialty markets.
All payments are made by debit or credit card, pre-approved when bidders register, within 4 hours of the close of the sale, eliminating the risk of bad checks & counterfeit cash. Your items are paid for before the buyers even arrive to pick up.
Since all the items are sold online you can follow the bidding live, and once the sale is complete you will receive an summary report and settlement check within 14 days or less.
