Well, thanks for asking! While I can take up a tremendous amount of your time let me provide you with what I believe is most important for you to consider when making such an important decision.
1. Public auctions allow for competitive bidding in real time. It is an equal playing field for all customers - not first come first serve and we sell EVERYTHING in one day in a matter of hours.
2. We are licensed and regulated by the State of Florida - they are not.
3. We are insured, bonded through the State Regulated Auctioneer Recovery Fund.
4. We are familiar with Florida Auto Titles and firearm regulations. We work to protect our clients by properly processing the paperwork associated with these items.
5. We have been in business since 1980. Not many companies can make that claim.
6. We offer competitive commissions, no up front costs in most cases, and handle all transactions - credit card, wire transfer, checks and accept the risk associated with them.
7. We collect sales tax and follow the law to the letter.
8. We have certified appraisers on staff and catalog writers who are experts in what they do.
9. We have agents in our firm who can handle the real property transactions as well.
10. We are innovators in Online Auctions. We bring a world wide audience to your assets insuring you top dollar for them.
11. And above all else - We want your business and will provide you with professional service beyond reproach.
