We consign a variety of items at Woody Auction, a no-reserve auction house. Contact us for more information!
First, send us your photos. For instance, group shots of a cabinet or table display are fine. You can mail in hard copies, email digital photos to email@example.com, or add photos to a DropBox (share them with firstname.lastname@example.org) for us to view. Please note that photos in any format will not be returned. Lastly, be sure to include your name, address, and phone number.
Speak with Jason, our auctioneer, about your collection and the current auction market.
No upfront or hidden fees!
Flat commission: 21% for items that sell from $200 - $4,999; 30% for items that sell $199 and below; 15% for items that sell for $5,000 and over.
Mail-in a small collection of 10 or fewer items. Schedule a pickup for a large number of items.
Transportation of your collection: If Woody Auction has agreed to sell your collection, our staff will pack, load, and transport your collection back to our warehouse. However, you can also pack the collection yourself if you choose. Furthermore, we do pick-ups as well. This service comes at no charge, although we wait until there are a few pick-ups in your area.
Your collection is safely stored in a Woody Auction facility. Once your items are in our possession (whether they are picked up by us, shipped to us, or dropped off), all items are covered under our insurance until the new owner has received their package in the mail after the auction.
The auction is scheduled and the items are unpacked, inspected, listed (described), and photographed.
Photos are edited, direct mail pieces are sent to our carefully curated mailing list, and ads are created and sent out. The auction is listed on our website, on liveauctioneers.com, and featured on our Facebook and Twitter pages. In addition, other marketing avenues may also be used.
Approximately 3 weeks before the auction a notification packet is emailed to you with a listing of your items in the auction.
After you've spent a lifetime hunting and collecting the perfect treasures, it may seem like we have flown through your collection, as we move 80 to 100 lots an hour. You may attend, but keep in mind for most sellers it may be a bittersweet experience.
Final Settlement Packets are mailed out on the first (non-holiday) business day, 30 days after the auction.
