We are a full service company. We can handle the whole auction
procedure, from the signing of the contract to delivery of the sale
proceeds. We can sort, clean, organize, display, advertise
and auction the merchandise. The advertising and promotion are all
professionally handled and targeted to the type of sale and who the
potential buyers might be.
We also have a loader to facilitate setup of bigger items and assist with after the sale load out.
We maintain a user friendly web page and list our upcoming
auctions. Our web page features numerous color pictures of the
upcoming sale items as well as some pictures of past sales.
We maintain a database of e-mail addresses of 1000+ people interested in going to auctions. We directly e-mail these people lists of the items coming up for auction. We can also e-mail individual digital pictures, last minute additions, site conditions, late finds, etc. All our e-mails are sent or received with Norton Anti-virus software, which is updated regularly. Our e-mail list is NOT given out or will NOT be sold, it is for our own use only.
A high quality digital camera allows us the ability of taking pictures of any item and e-mailing that picture to a prospective buyer from anywhere in the country. This gives the absentee buyer a much better perspective and usually results in higher bidding.
We take absentee bids or phone bids on items.
We were the first auction company in Montana to offer real-time on-line bidding. Although this service is cost prohibitive for most auctions, we have used this service for the Art, Cowboy & Indian Collectible auction we do for Manitou Gallery several times.
We utilize a fully computerized clerking system. This system is a wireless remote computer system, online between clerk and cashier by means of radio transmitted computer signals. This allows the clerk to move (up to 1/4mile away from cashier station) with the auctioneer and directly key in sale information to the cashiers computer. This eliminates reentering information and the increased chance of errors.
The cashier has the sell of items immediately, no waiting for clerking sheets making checkout quick and error free. The buyer’s receipt is itemized and seller gets a detailed statement showing buyers, items sold, amounts and all charges or deductions.
The system automatically updates and categorizes mailing lists and alerts cashier of any past balances due.
These settlement reports are a MUST for you accountant or attorney.
We are bonded with the State of Montana, and carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance. All our employees are covered by Workman’s Comp. Insurance.
We are licensed in North Dakota and Montana
We have available, if needed, canopies (up to 20’x 60’) to protect merchandise and customers from the elements. Because of time and labor, a nominal setup fee applies to the canopies.
Several small locking showcases can be used for small valuables and we have hired off duty police officers for security if needed.
A portable office with toilets is provided. The office, toilets and showcases are all included in our services at NO CHARGE!!
In regards to liquidation of your personal property, you don’t
need to do a thing, we can handle it all.
