Auctions By The Bay Inc
Auctions By the Bay, Inc. was formed through a partnership originating from opposite sides of the antiques world. Avid antique collectors Sandra and Allen Michaan set out to create a new standard of excellence for the auction house experience while satisfying the needs of dealers and collectors alike. The highest priority at Auctions By the Bay is to serve all sectors of the collecting community with absolute honesty and integrity while charging the most competitive rates in the auction world. Our groundbreaking policies include: * "No Risk Consignment Policy."™ If any lot fails to sell, then we charge absolutely no commissions or fees. * Security in buying at auction - we will stand behind everything we sell as described in the catalog. * Maximum safety from damage or breakage. Every lot will be digitally projected onto our full size theater screen during the sale. We will eliminate the all too common problem of damaged merchandise caused by physically displaying each item as it is offered for sale. All lots will remain on display next door in our auction preview room during the sale. * Expanded preview schedules: All previews will continue during the entire sale. Since our salesroom is separate from the adjacent preview facility, there is no need to discontinue the preview during our auctions. For our monthly general auctions, the preview schedule commences at 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the Friday & Saturday prior to the monthly Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire and the day of the Faire from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. On the day of each scheduled auction, the preview will be opened for that sale at 9:00 AM and will remain open for the entire sale. * Education in Art and Antiques. ABB will present, in our luxurious sales room, a constant and ever-changing slate of seminars and guest lecturers from all over the world. * Full worldwide Internet access to each auction. ABB's custom designed, user friendly website makes auction preview at home easy and informative. * Maximum Buyer Accessibility. All lots will be available for live bidding in person, phone bidding, or real time internet bidding. * Restoration Services Department. As an added service to our clients, our onsite restoration department, Restorations By the Bay, offers a full range of museum quality restoration and repair services specializing in the restoration of fine antique furniture. * Reasonable Buyers Premiums. Our buyers premiums are the lowest of any major auction house in the country. Buyer's Premiums Are: Under $50,000 Hammer Price: 17% Any Portion of the Hammer Price in Excess of $50,000: 10% All of us at Auctions By the Bay, Inc. are dedicated to making your interactions with our firm, whether buying or selling, the finest auction house experience that you have ever had. Our staff is committed to serving you professionally and courteously. We aspire to make our company the absolute best that an auction house can be.
