Selling Items At Auction

Looking to liquidate or sell?  Bontrager Real Estate & Auction Service has been working on behalf of sellers for nearly 90 years, successfully selling a variety of assets such as real estate, vehicles, equipment & machinery, coins, collections, antiques, firearms, jewelry, and much more.  Because every situation is different we provide personal attention to every customer and use proven techniques to optimize profits for sellers with quality consignments.  You can start the consignment process by completing the form at the bottom of the page.

 4 ways to sell your merchandise through our auction:

  1.  Bring your consignments to us: Consignments can be brought to us by appointment.  Consignors download catalog cards ahead of time, create lots and complete the cards, then bring everything to our facility on the scheduled date, where our catalog team will assist with setting up.  A sliding scale commission covers our labor, software, and administrative costs.
  2. Schedule an on-site online auction: In some cases, it makes sense to leave a large consignment where it is and let our staff catalog, photograph, and video the item for an online auction.  This can apply to estates and large machinery, etc.  Our staff is able handle the dispersal of items to successful bidders after the auction takes place.  A sliding scale commission covers many of the costs, but there may be additional labor and disposal fees depending on the situation.
  3. Schedule a pick up for larger consignments such as business, estate, or household liquidations.  We have a skilled team that can professionally pack and move your large consignments to our auction facility to be prepared for an online auction.  In addition to commission, we also charge a truck & trailer fee, and a rate per staff hour to cover labor.  Rates vary based on the job, but our auctioneer can provide specific rate information once the job has been viewed.
  4. Schedule an appointment with our staff to view your real estate for sale:  We have a NY State Licensed Real Estate Broker,  Associate Broker, and Salesperson who can meet with you to discuss selling your real estate either through the Multiple Listing Service, or at auction.  Call our office at 585-343-4529 or email [email protected] to schedule an appointment with our professional staff.
