Interested in having an Auction, but not sure how to go about it?

Call Jeff Boone & Associates Auctioneers & Realty @ 765-779-4000. We will need your name, address, phone number, best time to reach you and a brief explanation of your current situation. Many times, Jeff Boone, Auctioneer will want to schedule a time to meet with you and see the items you wish to sell at auction. After meeting with Jeff, he will then provide you with the customary charges associated with having an auction and his opinion on the type of auction he feels fit your current situation. For instance, on-site where the items are located, our facility Mort’s Auction Field or an online only Auction.

 

What are the charges associated with having an auction? Auctioneer’s Commission which is typically charged as a flat rate fee for all items included in auction. The Commission charged for a Personal Property, Estate, Downsizing, or Liquidation auction is different than what is charged at Consignment Auctions. Consignment Auction Commissions are typically charged per item and a sliding scale is used. Labor Fees for hauling, organizing, cleaning, and preparing the items to be sold. Advertising Fees to promote the auction both in print, online and by sending notifications to past Buyers in our lengthy database. Restroom Facility charges, Trash Disposal, Coin Appraisals, Facility Rentals, and Auto Detailing fees are also a possibility, but are not always applicable.

 

What fees will I be required to pay up-front? All fees will be paid from the proceeds of auction, unless previously agreed upon by Seller and Auctioneer and incorporated in auction contract.

What is the lead time for getting my items to you so they can be included in an upcoming Consignment Auction?

We typically begin accepting Consignments 3-4 weeks prior to the auction date. This allows us the proper amount of time to include your items in FREE early advertising and marketing.

NOTE: We stop accepting Consignments the Thursday prior to Saturday’s auction. Specific drop-off dates and times will be posted under the Upcoming Auctions tab.
