We conduct an auction every Wednesday starting at 9 am selling in 6 auction rings from 4 buildings.
We work in a couple of different ways. You can bring your items to us or we can pick them up. The difference for you is in the commission rates that you are charged. The most economical is to bring the good to us where we have men to help you unload.
The cost to sell a vehicle is a flat fee, charged whether you sell your vehicle or NOT. You can put a reserve price on the vehicle. We must have title (IN YOUR NAME) and keys to the vehicle before the auction.
Checks are ready one week after your items are auctioned. You can pick up your check on Tuesday or Wednesday (one week after your auction) or we will put your check in the mail on Wednesday evening.
