Personal Property

What We Do

Sell your personal property for the highest possible price.

We understand that many times personal property auctions are associated with major life changes. We recognize how difficult these situations can be and we bring that sensitivity with us every step of the way. If we are hired to sell your personal items, we help you from start to finish. Our goal is to obtain the best possible results and maximize the prices obtained for your items. Many items fall under the category of personal property. It includes items old and new, big and small. You name it and it has probably been sold at auction. Examples include:

  • Valuable and fragile antiques
  • Farm machinery
  • Industrial equipment
  • Aircraft
  • Guns
  • So much more

The numerous advantages of online auctions.

Today’s buyers are tech savvy and they want to bid on their terms. We are one of the pioneers in implementing the latest technologies and practices to find the greatest number of people to compete for your items. We have thousands of buyers on our website weekly. With an online auction, bidders can view and bid on your items 24 hours a day from the comfort of their homes.

The most important thing we can stress to those handling estates and downsizing is to not throw anything away. Please wait until one of our trained professionals has an opportunity to evaluate what you have to sell and what might be most valuable. We have rescued hundreds of thousands of dollars of treasures from landfills. Remember one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.

Throughout our thousands of online auctions, we have regularly attracted bidders from around the world. More advantages include:

  • We don't just sell to your neighbors, we attract tens of thousands of bidders from around the world.
  • Your items are exposed to potential buyers for weeks to bid rather than one day when only those that can be at your auction can bid.
  • Rain, wind, cold, heat, snow, sleet, or hail won't affect your auction - it’s always beautiful online!
  • With more bidders comes greater competition leading to higher prices for your items.
  • Less risk of someone being hurt on your property or someone stealing or damaging your valuables.
  • You no longer need to pay to box, pack, and move your items, or rent tents, toilets, etc.
  • Marketing costs are cut considerably because you can now reach a worldwide audience with the click of a button.
  • You don't need hundreds of items to have an auction, we conduct single-item auctions on items such as farm machinery, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, boats, aircrafts, and more

We also offer live auctions.

We haven't abandoned traditional, live auctions for personal property; in fact, we have conducted thousands of them. Although most of our clients now request online auctions, we recognize that we work for you, the seller, and are willing to conduct live auctions when desired.
