How to Sell at Nest Egg Auctions

Portable Items:

Please call or email us for an appointment to look at your items. We are happy to evaluate your antiques, art and old collectibles for inclusion in one of our upcoming auction. We will provide you with a realistic evaluation of your items and a general expectation of auction value. We can then agree to an auction date and commission structure.

Estate Services:

Nest Egg Auctions offers complete estate services for the downsizing and moving industry. We are happy to offer free, informal walk-through evaluations of your home or family estate. We can help determine if the items you have are right for auction, estate sale, donation, or recycling. We utilize a local network of professional organizers, real estate agents, downsizing assistants, clean out and disposal crews, moving companies, estate lawyers, probate attorneys, and legal assistants.

The Process:

Auction items are brought to our gallery and warehouse prior to sale. A contract is drawn up that outlines the dates and times for the auction, the commission structure, and the inventory of the items. We then catalog and photograph the property, advertise it locally and internationally, and display it in our gallery. After the auction, we make payment less the agreed upon commission. Our commissions vary based on the value and quantity of goods consigned. Any expenses are agreed to ahead of time. Please contact us directly to discuss our commissions for any given project.
