Do’s and Don’ts of Auction Sales


Do’s and Don’ts of Auction Sales

For collectors, antique hunters, and those looking for a bargain, a live auction sale gets you want you want and adds some excitement along the way.

Sullivan Auctioneers have been conducting auction sales for 56 years.

Sullivan’s are an old fashioned business with strong family relationships, believing that keeping things simple is the recipe for success.

The Sullivans develop relationships with both buyers and sellers. Wouldn’t it be nice to go to a brand new area, take in an auction and at the end of the day the auctioneer can call you by name.

That is what we do. We make you feel at home and relaxed, no high pressure and no nonsense. We assure an honest auction with excellent results.

This is why we have brought to you SullivanAuctions.com, a place to bring us that much closer to YOU.

OUR NEXT SALE IS Wednesday, March 22 at 10:00am.  

There are some DO's and DON'Ts you will want to know before you go.

1. DO check the payment terms before the day of the auction.
2. If you are in the market for a large item, ensure you are able to remove your item that same day.  DO check for pick-up and delivery options.
3. DO attend the preview to inspect the goods before you bid.
4. DON'T gasp, exclaim or show visible excitement during the preview when you see something you want to bid on.
5. DO wear comfortable shoes and clothes.  
6. DO keep a folding chair in your car, just in case.
7. DO jump in on the bidding when your item is on the block.  Auctions move fast so if you take too long to work up the courage, chances are the hammer will come down before you do.
8. DON'T bid unless you are absolutely sure you want to buy.  You can't change your mind once the hammer comes down.
9. DO have a good time.  Auctions are equal parts sport and shopping.  ENJOY YOURSELF!
