FEES NOTE: From our extensive experience Epic Auctions and Estate Sales believes that the fee question is an important one but should be about the last question asked instead of the first. Hiring an estate sale company or an auctioneer is not like buying a TV set. Side by side dollar comparisons do not work when hiring a service such as ours. You trust your valuable possessions to a business that will market them for the highest proceeds with integrity, knowledge and experience. We believe that it is not as important what our firm earns as it is what you have in the end. You can always find someone to “do it cheaper” however the old adage, “you get what you pay for “ applies here. Simply, would you rather pay 10% of $10,000 or 5% of $6,000? (Fee percentages are for example only and do not necessarily represent possible charges.) The sales firm you hire does make a difference.
1. An auction is one of the few ways that you can receive more than you may have asked for your items.
2. An auction gives you the opportunity to wrap up the sale of an entire estate in a matter of hours.
3. Putting items up for auction allows you to deal with many buyers, rather than just one buyer
