By limiting access to only winning bidders and registered previewers, there will be significantly less wear and tear on your property.

High Sell

Through Rate

Coughlin's typically boasts an impressive sell-through rate ranging from 90% to 97% at auction. This high sell-through rate translates to more money for you as the seller and fewer items to worry about after the auction concludes.
