Why Sell Your Antiques, Furniture, or Collectibles At Dennis Auction?
Our Process: The first step is to evaluate your items and determine how we can best assist you with your individual situation. This can be accomplished by sending photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and by scheduling an appointment for one of our experienced staff members to meet at your home to discuss your items and options.
After your individualized plan is created, implementation will begin by scheduling a convenient pickup time and date. We will send an experienced crew with a truck stocked with blankets, boxes, and all necessary packing materials. Your items are inventoried, packed, and transported to our gallery.
Once at our gallery your items are unpacked, sorted, and processed including photographing, researching and cataloging. Items are then slated for a specific auction date and posted to our website as well as auctionzip and Liveauctioneers for online bidding that runs simultaneously with our in gallery audience.
Leading up to the auction we spend ample amounts of time promoting your items by contacting our customer base and by advertising. We also answer countless questions from bidders requesting more information about your items.
After the auction we collect payments for items sold for a period of 14 days (many of our bidders are scattered across the world). Checks are mailed out for your sold items within 21 business days.
