Consignment

Brooks Auction holds an online auction approximately every week, consisting of up to 50 consigners and selling up to 1,000 articles.  Items range from 18th-century antiques to contemporary used furniture to vehicles, tractors, tools, jewelry and everything in between. We specialize in estates and private collections as well as perform full cleanouts. Each auction is absolute and offered with no reserves on any items for any reason. For more information, just give us a call at (856) 694-2960 or email us at  info@bobbrooksauction.com.

STEPS TO TAKE:

1. CONSULTATION

The first step in consigning with Brooks Auction is scheduling a FREE, no obligation, on-site consultation or, for faster turnaround, e-mailing photographs to info@bobbrooksauction.com.  Items will be assessed for their age, condition, rarity, and value in the current market. During this initial consultation, we can provide estimates regarding labor rates and commission rates. We can also provide recent realized prices of similar items in an effort to ensure your utmost satisfaction with our services.
