How do Tag Sales compare to Auctions?
A tag sale is where every item is tagged with a price to sell. This has the benefit and downside of allowing a sale to cover several days. It can also appeal to some people to be able to browse and see prices. With an auction items are sold one by one by an auctioneer for the highest bid. The benefit of this is that everything can be sold and there are usually no leftover items to deal with.
How long have you been in business?
Randy started his auctioneer career in 1978 and has been selling ever since.
Will you come to me or do I have to bring my items to you?
We do conduct on site auctions. In fact, we have our own large tent, folding chairs, port-a-cool, portable heaters, mobile office trailer and more. We like to keep our buyers comfortable no matter the weather conditions. We also have a huge auction house located on Hwy 271 in Tyler, Texas. This allows you to bring items to us if you wish.
Do you offer finders fees?
We do offer a finder’s fee if someone leads us to a signed contract for an auction.
Do I have to pay for advertising and setup fees?
Absolutely not, we have some of the lowest commission rates in east Texas. Our flat commission rate is all inclusive from advertising and setup, to clean up after the auction.
How soon can I have an auction and get paid?
We need at least two weeks to advertise your auction from the time you sign a contract. You will be paid three days after the auction. All the proceeds from your auction go into an escrow account and you will have access to the sale records in just a few hours after the sale is complete.
