For various reasons, the number of auction companies conducting live auctions has dramatically decreased. One reason is hundreds of more items can be sold online than in a live auction because in a live auction only a fixed number of items can be sold due to how long it takes to sell one items. Another reason is in online auction bidders have 7 or more days to bid, not moments.
Sometimes we conduct online and a live auction for one consignor. For example, we may have a situation where we need to sell more items than can be sold in a live auction but want to sell some items live. If so, we have both.
We will evaluate each potential consignment for the best method to use.
