We offer two options:
We can purchase your items outright OR you can consign your items in our next auction.
Please contact our office at 623-933-7748 to discuss the items you have for sale.
When calling us for an appointment please provide us with:
- A brief, overview, description of the types of items you have for sale
- An approximate age, and condition of those items
- Your assessment of their total value
- This information is important to us. We are very aware of the current market trends of antiques, collectibles and quality used furniture at auction and are interested in your satisfaction of our services. Realizing that valuing a few items as opposed to an entire estate may be a monumental task, we will be pleased to meet with you to evaluate an estate.
Once we've gathered this information, we'll review it and any photos you sent us, with the buyers. They will take in to consideration many factors. Time frames, whether we are a good venue for your items and scheduling options just to name a few.
When the buyers agree, we'll make an appointment for an accredited or senior buyer to come to your location to see the items in person.
The buyer may make a "one lump sum" buy out offer at that time, or if some items need to be researched, you will be contacted within the next couple of days with the bid amount.
If you accept the bid offer, the office will schedule a pick up at no charge to you. Men, trucks, and equipment will all be provided. We will do the packing and hauling, leaving your location clean of boxes, packing materials and trash. Most often, the pick up crew will arrive with your check in hand.
If you choose to consign your items, you may make arrangements for their transport or we will be happy to help pack and haul the items at a nominal fee.
Our consignment commission fee is 25%.
Consignment payment less hauling or sorting fees, will be mailed in the form of a check). Along with the check, a full report including details of your items and fees are mailed the Friday following the auction in which the consignment was sold.
