How it works:
When you call Matthew Bullock Auctioneers, LLC our professional staff is here to help. Whether you have a small collection or a home filled with a lifetime of memories and objects, we will manage the sale of your items from start to finish.
The process starts with a free, no obligation consultation. We will visit you on site, or you can bring your collection to us.
During your consultation we will discuss the options of a Cataloged Auction, Estate Sale, or Consignment, based on whatever option will provide you with the most successful sale for your collection or estate. We are equipped to manage all aspects including inventory, packing, moving, storing, and marketing prior to the sale.
We offer confidential and prompt appraisals for insurance, estate planning and settlement, family division, taxes and charitable donations.
We believe strongly that charitable contributions are a vital part of running a business. For this reason, 10% of the buyers premium at each auction will be donated to a different charity.
The success of an auction hinges on good marketing. Over 90% of the work during an auction is done before the first bid is called. Our marketing department is second to none. Vigorous promotion campaigns that utilize direct mail, emails, internet websites, contacting collector clubs, illustrated ads in antique publications, printed catalogs, photo & detailed online catalogs of every lot in the auction, press releases and more to reach the appropriate market for your antiques, coins, and collectibles. A properly advertised and promoted auction or estate sale insures that fair market value is reached for their clients through competitive bidding.
All objects in our auctions are processed and handled with care. Your estate items will be sorted, cataloged, photographed, and will have a detailed description placed in our auction catalog. The catalog will be posted on our website, proxibid.com, our app, and will be available in printed form prior to the sale and on the sale date.
Collectors who cannot attend our auction can bid conveniently from anywhere in the world via e-mail, telephone, through our website, with “real time” bidding via proxibid.com or through our app. Our shipping department can ship anything anywhere in the world.
In some cases an estate sale may be the most efficient and profitable option. We are affiliated with Main Street Estate Sales and can assist you with an estate sale. We can discuss estate sales as an option during your consultation.
