Do you offer estate sales?

No, we do not offer estate sales (in the traditional since). We have ran hundreds of estate sales over the years, but we found that out clients make more money and more items sell (among many other benefits) when we do an online estate auction, so we stopped offering estate sales in 2018 and went strictly to online auctions.

Do you offer live auctions?

No, we not offer live person auctions. We find that when we run auctions online, we open your items up to be purchased from bidders all over the world, instead of relying just on the people who attend the auction or estate sale in person.How long do your auctions run online for?We typically run an online auction for a minimum of 7-9 days.

How do you advertise your auctions?

We have a marketing team who is dedicated to make sure each auction is extremely successful. They advertise each auction on all major auction and estate sale sites, create custom email campaigns that are sent to our large base of bidders, heavily advertise on social media platforms, reach out to collector groups, and more! On average, our auctions achieve 60k-120k views.
