Staff was very helpful and a gentleman loaded my purchase in our car. All very friendly.
Very beautiful objects-worth it to go see items before the auction-unless you have to drive all the way from Naperville!!! Direct is very organized. I don't know how they do it with all that is going on around there-true professionals.

Very good selection, affordable, helpful
I’ve purchased from these guys several times period when I was unable to fit all of my items in the back of my truck and I was about to go on a three week vacation, they were very helpful and understanding period giving me an extension to pick up my last item is no problem for them which I appreciate period some of the auction houses have been a little picky about that. I think they have a really good selection. They also give me a close estimation of the value of the item which I really appreciate since I don’t know values of antiques very well yet myself.

good people
I have been buying from auctions online for 20years. As time has progressed i've been eliminating auction houses that i participate in because of the excessive costs of shipping. In house shippers are one of the first things i look for if i am deciding to bit. This purchase from Direct Auction was my first from them, and it won't be my last. I had a rug and cane shipped and i was shocked at how inexpensive the charges were. Gary, the shipping manager went out and got me a special box to lessen the cost and communicated with me. Got the items next day, packed professionally. What a pleasure. Wish all auction houses had a Gary in their shipping department. With growing premiums, processing fees, sales tax and excessive shipping costs i foresee many auction houses losing business more and more. I will always await the next action fro Direct hoping to find an item or two that i can bid on and. have confidence that they will work to get their customers the best result. Thank you Gary and Direct Auction. Daniel
