Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is the average turn around time for an item to be auctioned?

The average turn-around time from when you drop an item off, until it is auctioned, ranges from 2 to 4 weeks, so please be patient, and watch for the photos of your items online to know when they are being sold. In the event we are selling a large quantity of items for you, it is possible that your items will be split between multiple auctions, in which case you may receive a separate check/invoice for each auction. 

 

How can I figure out what my item may be worth?

We encourage all consignors to attend at least one Auction before consigning items, so that you are aware of the current market, and what similar items to yours are selling for.  We do not require this, but it will help you to better understand the auction process.

 

Do you offer appraisal services?

You are welcome to email us photos of the items in question and how much you are hoping to get for them and we would be happy to take a look at them and let you know if they are likely to bring that at auction. Otherwise, we do make house calls and offer verbal appraisals for $85 per hour.

 

Do I need to make an inventory list for the items that will be consigned to GEAC?

An Inventory List is not required when consigning items, but if you wish to create one, please have it ready prior to your drop off or pickup.  On days that we have dropoffs, there are usually several people dropping off at a time, and if you do not have a list ready, we may not have the time to create one at that moment, especially on large drop-offs. When you consign items, we do inventory and tag items with your customer ID as we lot them, to track them through the auction process.  You will receive our inventory list with your check.

 

Can I set a reserve or minimum on my item?

Please understand that this is an auction, and your items will sell to the highest bidder. We do not allow reserves or minimum bids on most of our items, otherwise it would just be a retail store. You may email us photos of any items that you may be considering for auction, and we will be happy to give you a free consultation about which venue will best suit your needs. Auctions are a wonderful resource to sell items, and often times will bring far more than you anticipate on desirable items.

 

When will I get paid?

We print checks and invoices on the 1st of every month. We do not disclose what items sold for due to the large amount of consignors and the time that it would take. You are welcome to attend the auctions to watch what your items are selling for.

 

What types of items do you sell?

We are currently only accepting High End Items at this time. Please send us your photos for Consideration at auction@geauction.com. Some Higher End Items include Guns, Jewelry, Listed Art, Vehicles, Boats, Antiques, Coins, & More!
