How does Christy’s work?

There are 2 ways we can serve you. 

  1. Buying at Christy’s
  • To register for our auctions, you must have a credit card. You can register 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. 
  • Please make sure we have all the correct information Phone, Email, Address, Etc. This will ensure you receive the correct invoices, and communications from Christy’s.
  • Things to note on our website. 
  1. Location not all auctions listed on our website are our auctions or located at Christy’s. We are part of a group called MarkNet. This group of auction companies have joined together to provide you the buyer a seamless bidding experience, and give each other the ability to share with our bidders other auction they may have interest in. 
  2. Again Location, not all our auctions are located at our facility. We do occasionally have auctions at the home or business. 
  3. Pick Up Times, our pick up times are very strict, as we have a lot of estates, and other merchandise to get cataloged for you. 
  4. Again Pick Up Times, for the auctions not located at Christy’s the seller usually is in a time restraint. Most sellers are turning over the keys as soon as the pick up time is completed, so all items must be removed. 
  • We do offer shipping of items at the buyer’s expense. However we do not have any delivery service available at this time. 


     2.Are you looking to sell with Christy’s 

• First step in the process we would like to have some photos sent to us so we have an idea of the items you would like to sell. Those photos can be sent to [email protected] or to [email protected] 

• If you sell your items with us we will charge a commission fee plus a lot or item charge. This will depend on our staff of how we “lot” your items. Lots could consist of single or multiple items. 

• We also offer pick up service. When we come to pick up your items the commission’s scale works much differently. There is a small truck charge in the Marion County area, outside our county the truck charge will be more, and the commission rate is based on a sliding fee scale. The scale is dependent on the total dollar amount that your items bring. The more you sell, the better your commission rate. The other charge that you may incur is if you want us to pack the small items. We will charge per box that we pack. However you can supply good durable boxes and the tape for our crew at your expense.

• Everything is sold to the highest bidder. There are NO reserve prices or set prices.

• How much does it cost to sell a vehicle?

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.

• How do we receive payment?

Checks are ready one week after your items are auctioned. You can pick up your check at our office, or they will be mailed to you.
