The crew here at Doerr Auction & Realty, Inc wanted to let you know what we’ll be working on during the summer break. As many of you know, we will not be having our regular consignment auctions until sometime in early August. During this time, here’s what we will be doing…
While our consignment center won’t be accepting consignments as usual, we WILL be having online auctions. We are accepting quality consignments at our facility by appointment after talking with an auctioneer. We are able to sell many things online, so if you’d like to sell something (or many things), give us a call to speak with one of our auctioneers. We already have a bunch of great items that we will be selling through an online auction over the next few weeks, so be watching for that shortly!
We have a large estate arriving at the auction center on Friday morning to be prepped for selling online. This includes some beautiful furniture, sports equipment, and even a golf cart! We also have a large lot of office furniture, a large format printer, and several very nice file cabinets arriving on Wednesday of next week (July 8th). We have a large assortment of household items, furniture, art, and collectibles at our consignment center ready to be auctioned off online over the next few weeks.
Finally, we have an on-site online auction (where the items will be picked up at the location of the auction, not the Auction Center) scheduled to begin on Monday, July 6th. It will run through Tuesday, July 14th with the pickup on Thursday, July 16th. This will have some very nice furniture as well as many other items!
Our auctioneers will be taking a little bit of time off (hey, they’ve worked really hard this spring to sell as much merchandise as possible, so they definitely deserve a break). However, they WILL be scheduling and conducting consultations during the summer break. With many people moving, down-sizing, and needing our services, we aren’t going to completely drop out of serving all of the wonderful people in southern Illinois.
We have lots of options during the summer break for auctions including:
Online Auctions (with On-Site Pickup)
Online Auctions (with Consignment Center Pickup)
Pickup Services Scheduled for late July/early August
Picking Up Merchandise-
We will be picking up merchandise from consignors to be sold either online throughout the summer or at one of our August Treasure Hunt Thursday auctions. If you are needing items picked up during the summer, please contact us and we can schedule that pickup.
Maintenance and Cleaning-
During the summer break, we have a chance to do extra cleaning and maintenance at our facility here in Vergennes, IL. We have already done a deep cleaning on all of the floors preparing for all of the items entering the building to be sold online over the next few weeks. We will also be doing some various maintenance projects to help keep our auction center looking nice and functioning appropriately.
The summer break at Doerr Auctions is a needed rest for the auctioneers at Doerr Auction & Realty, Inc, but the work does not stop. We continue to provide services to the great people of Southern Illinois through our many auction services offerings. Give us a call or stop by the auction center to catch up, see our online auctions in action, or get some information on buying or selling at upcoming auctions.
See you soon!
