If you are the owner of unique furniture —that high-heel-shaped chair, an ornate monkey lamp, those seashell side tables— you may be facing some difficulties when it comes to selling them. Because they are so special and different, many potential buyers in Orlando may pass on them. You know they have to be worth something, though, so you are not at the point where you are ready to give them up for donation. Orlando Estate Auction can help, thanks to estate auctions that draw large crowds of people selling unique furniture and looking for interesting and valuable items.
Selling Unique Furniture at an Auction
When you have decided to sell your unique furniture, you can contact Orlando Estate Auction, and we will help you research the piece or pieces to find out how much they were originally worth and what changes have been made in the value since then. We have seen many a unique item come through our gallery, and we know that determining the value can be difficult. This is especially true if the piece is one-of-a-kind or a custom design. However, we have a good sense of the market and can take certain variables into account to determine how much it should go for at auction. We may ask you questions such as:
- Where was the piece made?
- How did you acquire it?
- When was it made?
- Have any modifications been made?
Questions like these will help us determine the history of the unique furniture, which, in turn, may influence the selling price in the end.
Making Selling Unique Furniture Easy for You
One of the most dreaded parts of selling unique furniture for most people is the transportation of it after the sale. How are you going to fit that reclaimed driftwood coffee table in your sedan? Are you going to meet with the buyer somewhere, or are they coming to you? Will the transaction be in cash or will they write a check? There are many uncertainties that arise when using sites like eBay or Craigslist to sell items. With a professional company like Orlando Estate Auction, you won’t have to worry about any of that. We handle everything from the pickup, inventory, auction, and money handling. All you have to do is call us, and we’ll pick up your item, transport it to our downtown gallery, sell it to the highest bidder at auction, and mail you a check. It’s that easy!
