Auction Information

The Auction Method of Marketing offers the opportunity to convert property into liquid capital quickly, at the best possible price, through competitive bidding. For centuries auctions have been recognized as the fairest and fastest sales method around the world. The power of buying and selling at auction is really very simple.

When the bidding stops and the hammer falls, the value of an item is set. The buyer, not the seller, sets the price. In no other type of selling situation will you see actual fair market value realized on a given day. This simple distinction cuts through all the speculation about what the sellers merchandize is really worth. The emphasis is on today’s auction values.

We are pleased to announce our new bidding platform through Auction Mobility. This new partnership will feature a completely rebuilt website optimized for desktop and mobile browsing, online bidding straight from our site and a mobile app where you can do it all. This incredible new service is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, and web! Bidders can browse catalogs, watch their favorite lots, and place bids all with the touch of a finger.
