So pleased with the entire auction experience here. The fan was even better than described. The shipping was way better than other auctions and best of all the fan was securely packed with crumpled paper and there wasn’t any of those completely nasty messy packing peanuts which I loathe. All auctioneers should learn from them. The staff in the office are wonderful too and so patient and kind. Thank you so much! ❤ ️ 💕 ❤ ️

Thanks Randy & Mike & your team for making my purchase so enjoyable!
I was the winning bidder on the “Large Pulley Operated Zoetrope and Phenakistoscope” September 9, 2023. Yesterday, September 29th I received my beautiful prize and I could not be happier. The packing was excellent. Everything was carefully wrapped in “large bubble” bubble wrap and nested tightly in crunched paper. The large cardboard box had an extra layer of cardboard lining the inside wall of the box. A shipper could have walked on it or dropped it off the back of the truck and it still would have survived. The photos in the listing were bright and clear and the description was just enough so I could be confident in what I was bidding on. The estimated value was $400-$600. When I saw the listing it felt like I already owned it. I was going to go up to $800.00, but as often happens someone else wanted it too, so I ended up with a $1, 200.00 winning bid. This is my third time winning a bid throughLiveauctioneers.com, so I knew what to expect with the fees: Buyer’s Premium $276.00, Processing fee $59.75, Sales tax 110.70 and Shipping/packing/insurance a very reasonable $130.20: for a Grand Total of $1, 776.65. I know that is $576.65 more than the hammer price, but when I look at the big picture it is worth it to me. For 21 years in a row I attended the wonderful Antique Phonograph Convention at Donley’s Wild West Museum & Theme Park. Randy and Mike worked very hard to make sure everyone had a great time. When I came home from the show with a purchase I rarely thought about what the cost of hotels, meals & gas added to the cost of what I bought, it was just part of how the game is played... All the fees are just a part of how the auction game is now played. By the way, I guessed there would be about 12 to 20 “image strips” included in the purchase, but when I separated them all out from the curled roll I actually have 52! Thanks Randy and Mike and your team for making my purchase so enjoyable!

Effortless … in a Good way
Great auction. So easy to participate prior or during. Shipping was expensive as normal, but execution was worth it.
