Absolute Auction Co.

ABOUT ABSOLUTE AUCTION CO. T. C. "Nick" Barriger, is a bonded auctioneer registered with the Secretary of State of California. His bond number is 0447245. Absolute Auction Co. is his auction company. As of June, 2004, Nick had worked with Mike Vendetti at The Auction Center, and then A1 Auction Service, for nearly eight years. He has managed auctions, and called bids, for just about every type of auction -- estate, business liquidation, consignment, abandoned property, and cars. In June of 2004, Mike Vendetti, member of the board of directors for the California State Auctioneers Association, and long-time National Auctioneers Association member, made the decision to concentrate solely on his burgeoning car auction business. Mike does seven car auctions per week, and is a major partner with the Vehicle Donation Center, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars per year for deserving charitable organizations. His car auction business is growing so fast, Mike just doesn't have time for much else. The time was right, then, for Nick to form his own company. With Absolute Auction Co., Nick does all types of auctions. He has a great deal of experience with estates and business liquidations, and abandoned property has evolved as a specialty. A1 and Absolute will continue to be associated, share a web presence, and the mailing list Nick and Mike have built up so carefully over the years. Here's what Mike Vendetti has to say about Nick: "I had a lot of options of what to do with that part of the business, all the non-car auctions. I could have sold the business, or made a referral arrangement with any auctioneer in the state. My company has a very good reputation. It's an extremely tough thing to establish a good reputation and maintain it for a long period of time. I wanted that business to go to an auctioneer who would uphold that reputation, someone who I know would do an excellent job in every way. Nick is that auctioneer. In fact, for seven or eight years he's been helping to create that reputation. He has my highest endorsement and recommendation." The name Absolute Auction Co., comes from a term in the auction world, "absolute auction". An absolute auction is one in which each item is sold to the highest bidder without any reserve or minimum price. While the Absolute Auction Co. will do auctions that are not "absolute auctions", they remain Nick's favorite kind of auction. He considers an absolute auction to be the auction in its purest form. All abandoned property auctions are absolute auctions.
