The Chattanooga Auction House Consignment Info

Due to the high volume of consignments and estates that we handle, every week is important.  Inasmuch, all consignments must be on-site and logged in within the first week immediately following the most recent auction. Consignments are accepted from Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. We operate on a first come first serve basis. All items considered for auction, PRE-APPROVED OR NOT, are subject to visual inspection upon arrival to determine eligibility for auction.

Securing consignments as soon as vacancy for new inventory is created during this time, allows us the opportunity to clean, inventory, organize, photograph, research and lot (set-up and number in auction order) each item for sale. Auction is a great alternative to selling your merchandise through the classified ads.

When considering what items are available for us to auction, quality should be of major concern.  If, in our opinion your merchandise would fare better at another auction gallery due to like content, we will be glad to make the referral.

Unsure if we’d accept your items?
Functional household items, i.e. glassware, china, etc.– should be minimally in sets 6 and not odd pieces. We accept quality merchandise only. Broken items, items in need of extensive repair, pet stained carpets, yard sale leftovers, etc. are not typically things we accept, as we do not offer furniture repair or refurbishing. All items, including wall art are accepted on an individual basis and must be framed to be considered.

When considering what items to consign for auction, our “auction archives” tab serves as a great reference tool.  If further assistance is still needed, or if you need commission rates, just give us a call and speak directly to one of us.
