  • Bidding


We offer “Real-Time Bidding” on the Internet through two major facilitators. They are Live auctioneers out of New York City and Invaluable out of Boston, Massachusetts. You can follow our auction on the Internet as it happens live and bid as if you were in attendance. All you have to do is register for the auction with one of our partner online auctioneers, leave preliminary bids should you wish and then log on once again the day of the auction. Online Bidding Buyers Premium is 22%.


You may sign up for a live phone bid during the auction. You must fill out a phone bid form listing the items you want to bid on and we will call you when those items come up for auction. Please use our contact form here if you would like to use this option.


You may leave an absentee bid prior to the auction via, email, mail, phone or fax. Your bid will be executed as if you were there bidding in person. We will not start the bidding with your left bid unless there is another absentee bid that is only one increment under yours.


Of course you are always welcome to come to our auctions in Ann Arbor Michigan. We always sell a variety of merchandise so we get a big crowd. It is more of an event than an auction and everyone has a great time. Buyers premiums 18% for those in attendance paying cash or check, 22% for those paying with a credit card.
