Palm Beach Modern Auctions

Why consign with Palm Beach Modern? Consigning your items should be easy, understandable and profitable. At Palm Beach Modern Auctions and Urban Culture Auctions it is, and here's how we make that happen: We make consigning easy and convenient... Simply send photos and information about your items via email, our website, or snail mail, and we will get back to you with an estimate. If you're in our area, we may even be able to set up an appointment wherever the items are. If the numbers are mutually agreeable, let us know and we'll send you a contract. Return the signed contract, send your items, and receive a check shortly after it sells. Our friendly team is here to guide or assist with everything from shipping recommendations to depositing your proceeds. No buy-back, photography or insurance fees... Palm Beach Modern Auctions and Urban Culture Auctions keep it simple so there are no surprises. Seller's commission and shipping are your only expenses to consign with PBMA. Our commission structure is a simple sliding scale based on the value of the merchandise. More press = more money... Palm Beach Modern Auctions and Urban Culture Auctions have received unprecedented worldwide press for individual items and collections including The Drawings of Karl Lagerfeld, The Studio 54/Steve Rubell Collection, and The James Dean Jacket. We use a public relations (PR) firm to put our auctions front and center in the news, because press coverage brings in more bidders to compete for your items. When multiple bidders compete, it raises prices realized - often by 10-20% - and that means more money for your item and in your pocket. You can find articles and videos about PBMA in the New York Times, NBC, ABC, Daily Mail, Vogue, Architectural Digest and many more. More bidders = more money... When more people see your item, more people compete to buy your item, ensuring you get the highest price possible. Unlike many other auction houses, we have a full-time marketing department to develop an individual marketing plan for each auction. The marketing team's goal is to expose your items to as many people as possible worldwide. Our comprehensive strategy includes search engine campaigns and optimization, multiple online bidding platforms used by hundreds of thousands of bidders, collector sites, social media, bulk and targeted client emails, and newspaper/magazine ads. In addition, we produce a printed catalog, send postcard mailers and maintain informative and easy to use websites. Location, location, location... Palm Beach Modern Auctions and Urban Culture Auctions headquarters are in the affluent Palm Beaches. The Palm Beach 33480 zip code is one of the richest zip codes in the United States, bringing in a high net worth audience that is sophisticated and collection acquisition driven. Worldwide galleries, many who participate in Art Basel Miami, are part of our aggressive bidding audience. Online bidding options, phone and absentee bidding bring the rest of the world into the room on auction day for real-time bidding.

At Palm Beach Modern Auctions and Urban Culture Auctions it is, and here's how we make that happen: You know what you're getting... We use straightforward language and include multiple photos showing various angles including construction/condition details, clear and accurate statements regarding condition of the item, and (when available) include book/online references and history (provenance) in each of our listings. Bidders can examine the item in person during our preview period, and we have a knowledgeable and approachable team available to answer any questions or concerns. In short, you will know everything we know about the item prior to bidding. We don't like surprises any more than you do. Vetted modern & contemporary... We specialize in 20th-21st Century art, design and pop culture. You won't wade through hundreds of antiques in search of Royere chairs, Murakami prints or Van Cleef & Arpels earrings. Our team carefully examines, researches, and provides a fair and accurate estimate before offering the items to you at auction. Our proximity to Palm Beach and Miami plus worldwide press on our auctions including The Drawings of Karl Lagerfeld, The Studio 54/Steve Rubell Collection, and The James Dean Jacket, means that we are bringing to auction the most sought-after and rare pieces from the most prestigious collections. Convenient buying options... We agree, buying at auction should never be intimidating, complicated or inconvenient. We offer many bidding options so you can choose which is most comfortable for you. Place your bids in-person on auction day, in real time or in advance online, by phone, or by get to decide. If buying electronically is most convenient for you, you will find that the entire transaction, from your bidder registration to paying your invoice, can be completed from your phone or computer. If you prefer a paper form, we offer those options as well. Simply let us know your preferences and we will point you in the right direction. Our event-based auctions are fun to attend... Our auctions are an opportunity to leave your car with the valet and enjoy themed catering and refreshments while you bid. You might even be surprised to find a new mural covering the building for an Urban Culture sale or be greeted by a Diana Ross impersonator as you enter our exhibition space. Our auctions are always memorable, and we hope to see you at the next event. Whether you're buying or selling with us - or both, as many of our clients do - most importantly, you're never alone! Our team is here with prompt and helpful answers, from questions about items of interest and shipping options, to buying and selling at auction. If you are having any problems at all or just want extra help, feel free to contact by phone or email our Concierge Services Liaison, who has access to all departments and straight to the top if necessary. ------------------------------------------------------------- Auction, mailing and delivery/pickup address: Palm Beach Modern Auctions / Urban Culture Auctions 1217 N Dixie Hwy Lake Worth Beach, FL 33460 Phone: 561.586.5500 / Fax: 561.586.5540 Email: Office hours: Monday through Friday, 10:00am EST-5:00pm EST Rico Baca Auctioneer, Florida License #AU4083, #AB2905

Superb personal service
I contacted Palm Beach Modern before and after the auction for a sculpture I purchased. They provided all information, patiently waited for my check to arrive for payment and assured me all the way! UPS store they recommended was excellent. Their packing was superb. Would love if every auction transaction was this easy
