Auction Information

Auctions are about as old as mankind, with the earliest recorded auction in Babylon in 500 B.C. The earliest auction recorded in the United States is deemed to be a book auction in 1662 in New Amsterdam. While the auction method for selling is very old, today's method of selling at auction is very modern. Total Auction Services prides itself in using the most modern technology in conducting auctions.

The auction method is today's marketing advantage because it establishes a true market value for real and personal property at any given time. Auctions work and can out perform other methods.

The Auction industry is a people-oriented profession and provides a benefiting service to both the seller and buyer. It is not necessarily a distress sale or last resort means of selling. There are many businesses and industries that would not consider any other method to market property.

Auctions are interesting "people" events and have been for centuries. Anything can be sold at auction from personal items such as furniture and antiques, to real property like real estate, to business inventory to much, much more.
