Online Auction Services:
E-Z Auctions of Southern Illinois specializes in online auctions. During these auctions, the items are documented, photographed, and prepared for sale. Bidders register online and are able to bid on the items during a specific time period, usually lasting from 7-14 days. During this time, a preview is available for potential bidders to inspect the items in person. At the conclusion of the auction, winning bidders are notified and billed for their purchases.
Additional Auction Services
If it is determined that a live auction or another type of auction is in the best interest of the seller, then we are able to conduct those types of auctions as well. During the initial consultation, we can discuss the different auction services that are available and help determine what type of auction is the best fit for your unique situation.
Estate Buy-Out Services
In some situations, clients prefer to simply have the items purchased in one transaction. In this scenario, we facilitate the taking of bids on the entire estate and help the seller to determine which bid is the best (in terms of the price, what items that particular buyer wants, and what the timeline looks like for removal). This option is often quicker than hosting an auction, but the overall return can be lower since the buyers will be wholesalers instead of collectors or individuals.
