An Overview of the Personal Property /
Consignment Auction Process:
We pride ourselves in being a
“One Stop” provider for many clients,
as we are equipped to handle the auction
and sale of both the real estate and the contents of the property.
We are one of very few companies capable of offering this “One Stop” service.
Personal Property can be auctioned in two ways:
- On-Site Auction
- Our Multiple Estate and Public Consignment Auction
On-Site auctions are deemed appropriate in certain situations such as
business liquidations, equipment auctions, large estates and other situations,
as determined by auction company staff. Terms for on-site auctions are
determined on a case-by-case basis, as on-site auctions vary greatly in
content, type, location and degree of involvement needed by auction company.
