How it Works
1) Contact Us
To get started, contact us, and our team will schedule a time to visit your estate and view your auction items. We will go over the terms and dates with you in detail and set a date for your auction
2) Estate Auction or Consignment
Our team will be on-site at your estate, creating individual listings for each item to auction. If needed, we will clean out the entire home and arrange from distribution to donation or disposal sites for items unsuitable for auction.
3) Promotion & Advertising
We will promote and advertise your items to our large database of bidders and through various channels to attract as many potential buyers as possible.
4) Auction Day
On auction day, buyers will have the opportunity to bid on your items. Our team will monitor the bidding and keep you updated on the progress.
5) Payment & Collection
Once the auction is complete, we will handle the payment and collection of the items. We take care of everything, from pick-up times to shipping when necessary.
Selling in an Auction – Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started selling on your The Great Estate Auction Company?
What types of items can I sell on this auction website?
We accept various items, including antiques, collectibles, art, furniture, and more. Please review our seller guidelines for a complete list of things we accept.
How does consignment work compared to auctions?
Consigning is when we sell an individual item vs selling a complete estate. We have a monthly auction made up of consignments from several different sellers.
How long will it take to sell my items?
The timeline for selling your items depends on a variety of factors, including the popularity of the item and the bidding activity on the platform. Our team will work with you to set a date for the auction or consignment and provide you with an estimated timeline for the sale.
How much commission do you take from the sale?
Our commission fees vary depending on the item and the type of sale (auction or consignment). Our team will provide you with a clear breakdown of our fees and commission structure before you agree to sell with us.
How do I get paid after the sale?
Once the sale is complete, we will send you a check or make a direct deposit to your account for your portion of the proceeds. Our team will work with you to ensure a smooth and timely payment process.
What happens if items don't sell?
It depends on your unique situation – we will work with you to customize your experience, including how to dispose of unwanted items unsuitable for auction.
