  • Auction Your Assets

    Here's what you can expect when you work with us to auction your collection.

    1

    Collection Assessment

    Once you contact us, we will discuss the auction process and personalize the auction plan to meet your needs.

     

    We'll ask you to send pictures of items or, depending upon location, we can arrange to view the collection in person.

    2

    Set Date for Auction & Agree to Terms

    Next, we discuss and agree upon commission terms, set a date for gathering or receiving your items, set a date for the auction, and sign a contract.

    3

    Collection Gathering

    At the agreed upon time, you will bring or send your items to us for safe storage prior to the auction.

     

    Depending on your location, we can also come get your items for you.

    4

    Auction Preparation & Marketing

    We will tag, photograph, and write descriptions for each item.

     

    We will post each item on iCollector, where they will be available for bid online.

     

    We announce your upcoming sale on our website and through multiple emails to our audience prior to your auction day.

    5

    Auction Time

    Online only auctions: 

    Online auctions are open to bids for a full week. There is no buy it now option available.

    Invoices for bids go out the evening the auction closes.

     

    We open our auction house for the next week so buyers can come pick up their winnings or make arrangements with our shipper.

     

     

    In-person auctions: 

    We hold a preview days prior to your auction, so interested parties can view your collection in person.

     

    On the day of your sale, we hold a 5-6 hour in-person auction. To maximize participation, we run a simultaneous online auction open for a full week prior to the in-person sale date.

     

    There is no buy it now option available, so whether in-person or online, all participants have the opportunity to bid on each item.

    6

    Post Auction Wrap Up

    You will receive a list detailing all items sold and sale prices, along with your check, within two weeks of auction close.

     

    Then you refer us to family and friends!

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How soon can my auction take place?

    We usually schedule our auctions at least 6 months in advance, but we will finalize your auction date once we see your collection.

    Will you be able to sell it all in one auction?

    It depends on how many items you have. We will use our expertise to determine the best way to organize your collection for sale.

    How soon can you come get my items?

    If we are picking up your collection, we aim for "just in time" pickups to help you avoid storage costs. However, we always attempt to meet your timeline for removing and if necessary, storing your collectibles.

    Do you set reserves on any items?

    We do not typically recommend or set reserves on items, but will evaluate with you whether specific items should require a reserve.

    When do I pay for your services?

    Our commission is deducted from the total sale of the auction. No out of pocket fees are required. Our commission varies based on factors such as location, pickup, storage. We determine commission when we initially assess your collection. There is no charge for your collection assessment and quote.

    What if something does not sell?

    We can add the items to another upcoming auction for you. If it does not sell at a second auction, we will return the item to you or keep it, if you prefer. Reserve items that do not meet the reserve price will be returned at the end of the first auction.

    Will I have an online or in-person auction?

    It depends on the time of year (and the pandemic!). Whether your sale is online or in-person is at the auctioneers discretion. Winter auctions are always conducted online.

    How different is an online auction or in-person one?

    Our online auctions are well received! Similar to eBay, online auctions are open for a full week. In-person auctions also have an online component, so your items will get wide exposure regardless of auction style.

    How soon can I pick up my winning bids?

    Our auction house is open daily for pick up in the seven days following an auction. Call us to coordinate your pick up time.

    Due to limited onsite storage, if you are not able to retrieve your items within three weeks of the sale, they will be moved to offsite storage and you will be charged associated storage fees.
