"From a customer’s stand-point, I think they’re good but their organization could be stronger. They also have warehouse sales. Their prices are good" but sometimes the pricing is wrong as the tickets don't reflect up-to-date pricing or the correct date which has worked to my advantage. They’re nice and they are helpful with loading items. They're one of the few estate sale companies whose events we will attend.

"We hired to auction approximately 200-300 items from our home. Some were small items and some were very nice antiques. We had so many items" that picked up at our home, that we used photos to inventory the items. did not inventory any of the items and did not or number any of the items at our home. I asked Mr. how he kept our items separate from other auction items and was told that he had separate storage for our items. I expressed my concern that since his company did not place any or numbers on items (especially the higher dollar items) that if they were not kept together that there was no way to track the owner for payment. I was again assured that they kept them together and tracked the sale of each item. This proved not to be the case. After the first auction took place we received and check and list for the items sold about 1/2 of the items we sent were on the list - most of the really nice items were not on the list. I emailed Mr expressing my concern that many items were missing and was told the he was putting the unsold items in different auctions that he was running. With no way for Mr to track who the owner of the items is - how was he going to pay the owner for the sale of the item? Over the next few weeks we received a few more very small checks but many high dollar items were missing. We emailed back and forth but never got an answer on were the missing items are. We have asked for the list of who bought what but have not heard back for Mr. yet. We have photos of the items sent and those still missing if needed.

I sold my large home and downsized into a 2 1/2 bedroom apartment in California. I had to leave many items behind and I made all the arrangements with , of so that I could leave for California prior to the estate sale. Both and were completely trustworthy ...More and worked extremely well with two of my friends who were there in case there were any glitches. The moving van arrived on Tuesday, 13 August and I left and turned the house over to and on Thursday, 15 August. They had everything completely set up and arranged beautifully to begin the three day sale on Thursday, 22 August.
The sale could not have gone better and my neighbors and friends were totally amazed by the job did. Many say they will definitely use them when they have a need. They were outstanding to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

They were very quick and clean. They were on the ball and I got the check within a week after they had the auction. The guy who came in and did the assessment and the people who packed were very good. They did a very good job and they cleaned up after themselves. They were wonderful and I thought their price was fair.

I gave an antique curved glass china cabinet that was overfilled, a 1918 antique bed, an antique lamp, 2 silverware boxes filled with silverware, and a Bush computer desk. Their truck was filled with my items that I had bought bubble wrap and boxed up for them to take to auction. The cabinet had Fiestaware juice cups, a cookie ...More jar full of marbles from 1910, a crystal and creamer from the 1920's, cut glass items, Princess House retired items, Bavarian plates, Worlds fair spoons (previously appraised at $175), my g-grandmother's crystal spoon holder, a Gold Imari plate, 2 purple cut glass bowls and other items that were never accounted for. When I received my $379 check from I went to the auction house and picked up the rest of my items. Many of the items I picked up were stamped #220 and #167 instead of the #185 that was my correct auction#. I asked her multiple times to look at #220 and #167 to see if some of my more valuable missing items could have been credited to them and she refused. Besides the unaccounted for items, there were broken items and missing parts. Her answer was that I had not packed them well... She was never willing to account for any of the expensive missing items even after I sent her pics and a previous appraisal from a certified appraiser. She complained appraisal was out of date.... Yes, it was old but it was sent to show the items had value. She still wouldn't account for my items. A week later she called to ask if the Fiestaware hooks she'd sold on eBay could be mine! Yes, I did get a small add'l check for the hooks eventually. I could have made more $ selling these at a garage sale or even throwing half in the trash and selling the rest at a garage sale. A tax write off at Goodwill would have been better than the $379 that I received. I do believe she mismarked many of the valuable items with the wrong owner's number. Her answer was everything missing went into the back room into their five dollars a box 'deals's instead of researching my concerns or even caring. I don't believe that she would put a crystal spoon dish from the 1800's that was previously valued at over $200 in a box with other items to sell for $5. Neither do I believe the Fiesta Juice cups were thrown in a box to sell for $5 and on and on. I feel completely violated by and her crew. So for over $5000 of previously appraised items I received $379 plus a bit later for the fiesta hooks. Would not recommend 's Auction under any circumstances.

I phoned first, was assured by office staff that items would be sorted prior to auction & be placed in appropriate auction: main building where better items go vs. box lot building. When I dropped goods off, I also checked items they'd already prepared for auction in the main building to confirm that I had some items of similar quality. Per ...More my receipt, my total sales were

It was hard to find where to deliver the vehicle on the grounds. We ended up dropping the vehicle off in the lot at night so I could return the next day to turn it in. I arrived with a van full of small kids, so I couldn't move the van we were returning. They did eventually have someone drive it to the correct location for me. I didn't get ...More any type of receipt, so it felt strange just dropping it off. Later we got the itemized description of the damage they found to the vehicle. We were stunned to see they found over $2000 of damage. Most items were very minor with a big price tag. It did have one on a bumper, but $2000 was nuts. We are dealing with Chase to come to an agreement. That's another story.

I attended the October Art and Antiques auction. It was my second experience at . I have attended numerous art, antiques and estate auctions through the years, so I speak from experience in saying that runs an extremely professional operation. Staff are all knowledgeable about the merchandise, they've ...More done their homework. The auction house is bright and comfortable, and the website is a great resource for prep work. The auctions are lively and exciting, live bidding on the floor along with simultaneous on-line bidding and remote (mysterious!) telephone bidders. NOT a homespun country auction. NOT a snotty Sotheby's-type experience. Rather, a modern, upscale auction house which specializes in quality 20th-century art and antiques.

The whole crew is wonderful to work with. Very accommodating in all aspects. When we closed our antique shop, and came out and spent a whole day sorting and organizing for the next day auction. Great coverage on advertisement, gets the most for your items as possible. Left the shop ...More clean after the auction. Same with our home on-site auction. They took care of everything. We just sat back and relaxed. They also took a lot of our items to the auction house, feeling that they would do better there. They loaded it up, nothing was scratched or broken. They are a class act all the way. Very reasonable fees compared to others. Pays quickly.

We were unhappy that they tacked on a $50 pick-up fee which no one had mentioned in advance. They did take a lot of stuff, so we were saved the work of selling or otherwise getting out of the house. There is a lot of uncertainty in auctions (which we knew) so it is hard to guess what prices you might get; we did not get as much as we thought we might ...More for a lot of the things and the 35% commission took a fair amount of that. On the other hand, it is a good way to empty a lot of things from a house. They did leave behind things they didn't think they could sell which we then gave away or threw away. It took a long time from and reminder phone calls to get paid and they charged us the pick-up fee twice but then refunded it.
