How to Sell with Fair Auction Company

 

Special Note: We are currently accepting items for our Mid Century Modern auctions ONLY. 

Step 1:  Call or email us to request a free consultation. You'll be connected with one of our estate asset experts to review and evaluate your items for sale. 

  • To start the ball rolling, feel free to send photos via an email or text message from the Contact Us page.
  • Next, expect to receive a response within 48 hours, if you haven't, Call Us at 703.347.5088 

Step 2:  Plan to have a sale: There are several different methods we sell, namely in a timed, online only auction. We also offer Live, On-site Live auction services, outright purchases and fixed-price consignment to one of our high end live or online retail sale venues.

  • Yes, we do take reserves on select items. The reserve we agree upon will be based on fair market value, not retail or "asking prices."
  • The type of sale we agree upon will be determined to be the best venue for YOUR items. We feel each item is completely unique from the last and the next, making its most effective sales venue completely different from that of the last and next. 

Step 3:  Collect your proceeds! Within 30 business days of the auction closing, we mail out a consignment check. Our simple, competitive bidding process for both buyers and sellers means we will maximize the profit of every one of your items. All sold prices are listed to the "Past Auctions" page for transparency and so you can get an idea of what to expect ahead of time.
