Some of the most common auctions we manage are property auctions, liquidations, consignment, car and vehicle auctions, antiques, foreclosures, deceased estates, boats and shipping and many more. A liquidation auction is usually where a business has gone out of business and they have to sell their stock or furniture or vehicles etc. Most times this is due to bankruptcy and the court orders the auction sale. An estate auction or deceased estate is where someone has passed away and their property, possessions or items needs to be sold.
As opposed to a single advert online or through a sales agent, Auctions can attract a decent group of buyers who are willing to pay a fair price for something. These buyers have committed their time and effort to attend the auction and have reviewed the goods or had valuators in to value the property. This means that they are more than often serious buyers. Also because more than one person is bidding at a time, you have a greater chance of achieving your sale price as people are competing for the same item pushing up the bid. Because Robin Mills Auctions also offers clients a professional marketing package the property or liquidation sale is well advertised in the Argus, Burger and relevant geographical newspapers well as modern online platforms like Facebook, Twitter and our website. This attracts a large number of people to support the auction.
Technology allows us today to see, register and bid at an auction even though we are not there. Absentee bids are simple. All you do is register and pay your deposit and then arrange with us and we will be in telephonic discussion with you during the bidding process.
