WHY SHOULD YOU AUCTION?

COMPETITIVE BIDDING.

The atmosphere at auctions is energizing. Buyers get motivated very quickly to perform. They get caught up in the competitive bidding and many times the price of items is driven higher. For some buyers it’s a game. They want to win at any cost (or hopefully for you, at high costs!) And did you know that 9 times out of 10 an auction generates the fair market value, if not more, for any item falling under the hammer.

EXCITING ATMOSPHERE…

There is nothing more thrilling and exciting than an auction. Crowds of people competing for items combined with a lively auction chant makes for some great
entertainment and fun
