    We photograph your items for sale

    We'll come to your home, business or storeroom to catalog your items:

    • We'll photograph each item to properly present it.
    • We'll write careful, accurate descriptions of each item.
    • We will discuss the pricing and presentation of your items to maximize both the sale price and possibility of a sale.

    We will place your items for sale on the internet:

    • We will list your items with sites which, in our experience, offer the best chance for a sale for a particular item type or price range.
    • We will format and display your items for maximum visibility.
    • We will notify our mailing lists of interested buyers.
    We will help you sell your items online
    The club is very pleased with both the handling of the sale and the monetary outcome.
