Top Bid Auction did an on-site auction at my parents property after my father died and my mother could no longer live alone at their home. I had interviewed other estate sale companies and felt they were not fair in their offerings. Nor did they have any heart for my family's situation. When John from Top Bid met me at my parent's house and talked to me about price and what he could offer me, I was impressed with his stories of older folks he and his family spent time with. When the auction was finished, he had surpassed his initial estimate of what our profit would be. Not only did we make more, but he and his family were kind. The understood that there was a lot of memories and feelings wrapped up in "all that stuff". I am grateful for their professionalism, but even more so for their personal touch. I truly am grateful to you folks.
Warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and bountiful padded seats make for a comfortable auction experience. We have a public monitor to allow you to verify all sales with correct buyer and amount of bid and 4 monitors to let everyone see small items with a more critical look.
For those of you who make large purchases there is a loading area and our personnel will assist you in loading your items after the sale.
WE DO NOT DO ONLINE AUCTIONS ( EXCEPT DURING PANDEMICS) what's the fun in that? Only live, no reserve auctions at Top Bid Auction.
