So Now What?
CONSIGNORS PAYMENTS -
We now handle all consignor payments of $49,999 USD in-house. New consignors as of 9/1/2022 will get paid within 30 business days or less. Escrow accounts will no longer be utilized except for transactions in of $50,000 USD or greater. Transactions of $50,000 USD or more, get paid normally within 45 business days.
We will take certain consignments. If an item is a completed sale (paid, delivered, and accepted), we will receive 35% of the hammer price (the hammer price is the price the item sells for during the auction).
RETRIEVAL OF UNSOLD ITEMS -
Consignors will have a period of thirty (30) days from the end of the auction to schedule and pick up their unsold items. Items remaining over 30 days will be charged $10 per day per item. After 60 days all items will be auctioned with no reserve and all storage fees will be deducted from the sale of those items.
WHAT WE BASE CONSIGNMENTS ON -
When we take a consignment it has to meet certain criteria including desirability, condition, availability, and authenticity. We have no desire, nor do we feel it is ethical to sell an item for the same price a consignor can, unless the consignor prefers not to deal with the general public.
We will agree to put a reserve on certain items of significant value ($500 USD or more) once the item is evaluated. We will not base our determination of said item from consignors, or experts other than those we utilize for that specialized category.
BUYING OF ESTATES AND SINGLE ITEMS -
We may make a cash offer to purchase certain items and / or complete estate contents solely at our discretion.
ESTATE CLEANOUTS -
We handle estate cleanouts under a separate contract and based on the estimated value of the contents of the building. We utilize only insured professionals and we run on time showing up when we state we will be there.
CONSIGNOR PORTAL -
Consignors will now have the ability to log onto a secure private page and see what are the latest developments with their items. What their items sold for, what amount they will receive, and when a payment will be available.
