FAQ

 

What do you mean by “Risk Free” Hot Auctioneering Packages? 

Because you don’t need to buy your auction packages until after they have sold at your auction, these items are Risk Free. We give you a price for each auction package and you decide what price to open the auction at. Should the auction package not reach the desired level that you set as a minimum and you don’t sell the package you are under no obligation to purchase the package from us and no fee will be incurred.  Should the package sell at auction simply purchase the package on-line or give us a call at 888-857-2257 to arrange payment.

 

Do the auction items have images?

How many people are these packages for? 

The majority of these packages are for two to four people but we do have some packages for larger groups. The quantities for all aspects of a package are clearly stated.
