Weekly Auctions of Exceptional Items
George Cole Auctions
What We Sell We specialize in Estate Liquidation, and the sale of Real Estate and Antiques. We are also experienced in selling Vehicles and Boats of all types, Farm Machinery and Equipment , Commercial Equipment Liquidation, as well as many other items too numerous to mention. With over 30 years of operation, we have established an outstanding base of both sellers and buyers. This helps to ensure a fair price for both seller and buyer. Currently the bulk of our sales include quality antique items and furnishings and Real Estate. Most of the merchandise we sell is handpicked from local estates, and sold with no-reserve. How We Sell It With the exception of Real Estate Sales which occur on-site, and E-bay sales which occur in cyber-space, most of our sales are conducted in our comfortable air-conditioned auction hall. We do from time to time, as the situation may dictate, conduct on-site auctions. Typcially we set an appointment to meet with potential sellers and preview the mechandise to be sold. After we determine which merchandise will be be sold, we inventory the merchandise, carefully pack it up and leave a receipt. We then store the merchandise until it is time to be auctioned. (We usually have at least two auctions in storage at any given time and items may not be included in the next auction.) When it is time for the merchandise to be auctioned, we bring it out of storage, clean it up and advertise it both in print media and on the internet to bring the best value, and finally at last we sell it. Three weeks after the auction we send a check for the proceeds along with a computer print-out showing results of each lot sold. Phew... and you thought auctioneers just turn the lights on and start talking fast! Real Estate Selling Another one of our specialties is the sales of Real Esate. We employ a New York State licensed broker and sales agent to help handle all your Real Estate sales/purchase needs. You will find much more information on our Real Estate page. EBay Selling There is no denying that there are drawbacks to selling merchandise over the internet. With ID theft on the rampage, internet shoppers have had to become very wary. We believe that in most cases buyers would prefer to touch, feel and carefully look over items before buying. Some items sold via internet auctions just do not get good results. Though there are drawbacks, there are also some attractive aspects of internet auctions like ebay. The most attractive of all is the broad market of buyers. We are experienced in selling items via internet auctions and can help you avoid the costly and aggravating pitfalls.
