Our commissions are 30%, subject to overall minimums depending on the sale model chosen (we have a MaxSold and Seller Managed Model).
For our Maxsold Managed model, where our team is responsible for photography, cataloging of items, and supervising pickups, our total fees are $700 + 30%.
For our Seller Managed model, where the seller is responsible for the photography, cataloging, and supervising pickup (while our team is responsible for the auction hosting, online advertising, and collection of payments ) the fee is the greater of $300 or 30%. (Discounts for single high-end items are possible when included in the auction, such as a $20,000+ vehicle.) Marketing is included – there are no up-front fees.

Based on these commissions, we suggest you have at least 50 lots to host a MaxSold managed auction, as it is more economical for your time. The commissions cover cataloging, photography, marketing, online auction, preview (optional), pickup, invoicing, payment to the seller and the final settlement report.
However, if you have less than 50 lots, it is better to host a Seller-manged sale. Don't worry. We have a cataloging app to help you through the process.
Keep in mind that a lot could be a pile of garden tools, a set of flatware, an oil painting, a car, or the entire storage unit. You could contact our sales representative first to determine if we are a good fit for you, or which auction service you should be doing.
