Trying to find an auction or planning a day at an auction can be a little overwhelming for people who do not have auction experience. If you are planning to either buy or sell at a Tempe auction it is important to do your research and be well prepared before attending.
What to look for in a good Tempe auction
- Items – You first want to ensure that the auction will have the item(s) you are hoping to find. If you are looking for antiques a good place to go would be an estate auction or if you are looking for a vehicle you could attend a surplus auction, police auction or auto auction. Most auctions either post the items online or have a preview day prior to the day of the auction. If one auction doesn’t have what you are looking for, don’t be too disappointed; just wait for the next Tempe auction.
- Credibility – Make sure that the company holding the auction is credible and experienced. Look at their website, Google them, and check reviews. Get an overall idea of who they are and how their auctions are run. Also make sure that they are following state and federal laws because if they are not it might be beneficial for you in the beginning but it will cause major problems down the road.
- Service – Many auction companies have certain rules, regulations and guidelines in place so that auctions run smoothly and both buyers and sellers are satisfied with the outcome. Look up what kinds of services they offer, from prior viewing, inspections and detailed descriptions, tips on how to bid, buy and sell, and product guarantees. Especially when purchasing big ticket items such as heavy machinery, vehicles and property it is very important to make sure that the auction company will provide you with all necessary details before you purchase the item.
