Typically we hold an online auction event for a week, but we can shorten or lengthen the duration of the auction depending on your needs and circumstances. When the auction closes, your stuff is sold to the highest bidders! So what happens now?
We collect all the money online or over the phone, so there is no haggling or negotiating. We have a receipt and so do they. Now all they have to do is come and pick up their items, and that all happens at a set place and time. Prior to bidding, your buyers were informed about the details of when and where to pick up any items they have purchased. Again we handle that part of the transaction, and we will be there when the purchasers come around. It is the purchasers responsibility to be able to move any heavy items, so they bring their trucks or trailers and haul away their goods. Because we don't do shipping, if someone on the other side of the country wants to bid, they have to arrange for someone local to pick up their goods.
As difficult as it can be to part with so many things that you have owned, many of which had sentimental value, we have found the majority of our clients do not miss their things. You'll be taking with you the items you use and care the most about, and that is what’s important.
What happens to your goods that don't sell?
The best part of this process is that 98.5% of all your items sell. That's the average based on data gathered in the last few years of our auctions. Almost everything you put up for auction will sell, and find a home where they will be put to good use. The items that do not sell are typically damaged, soiled, or otherwise ineligible for donation, so they have to be thrown away or recycled if possible.
It's incredible how effective these auctions are, because they save you time and money, and they are a quick way to get rid of your unwanted possessions and make some money on the side. By selling online, you can quickly be on your way to the next phase of your life.
