The Internet has made the world a global village in so many ways. With a few clicks, you know that you can find deals all the way around the world if you look. If you can buy products from China from the comfort of your home, does it really matter where you hold the auction of your personal property?
The answer is yes. I have always found that our local, online auctions work and are a good fit anywhere we hold them. Unlike a lot of online sellers, we don’t offer shipping at our auctions. We require bidders to pick up the items they win, so we always want people who live nearby to be able to bid and actually get to their purchases. Generally speaking, the best place to hold an auction, if not in your home, is close to your home and neighbourhood. It may be true that if you live in a well to do neighbourhood, your high end goods will sell better there than if they were sold 200 miles from the nearest urban centre. The best part about this is, you don’t have to go far to hold an auction. We actually prefer if you don’t go anywhere! We will come to wherever your goods are.
However, if you have specialized or expensive property (like high end art pieces), they may be better sold at a live auction designed to sell similar pieces. We can manage that as well by finding the right venue where they will fetch a higher price. We also do appraisals, so you can be sure your items are correctly valued.
The fact is that for most possessions you are selling, an online auction is the best way to sell. 95% of the average items that an average person has will be sold in this kind of auction. It's simply a fantastic solution.
