We will develop a plan that fits your needs and most importantly helps you feel comfortable in making the right decision for your business.

Options and components of a successful strategy can include the following:

Commission sale – a preferred method of most. We would host an auction on site, on your behalf. Then we will charge for expenses only, then a commission on the items sold.

Outright Purchase ensures you are paid before the Auction. We will purchase your items prior to the auction. Then have the auction at your facility or move the items. Move it all out and clean up afterward.

Joint Venture or Assured Participation can be the best of both worlds. We guarantee a specified amount and then split the income over that number plus expenses. This allows you a chance to take advantage of a heated market and sale and share in the profits with us.

Auction service at its finest. With this choice we handle everything. We will evaluate, stage and set-up everything. Tag the lots, photograph, clean and host the sale. All descriptions, cataloging, brochures, advertising, collection of funds, invoicing, check out and removal are all handled by our staff.
