Why Sell at Auction?
- Contrary to what some might view as complicated and time consuming, a fast-paced auction (whether online or onsite) is one of the most efficient ways of converting your property or assets into immediate cash.
- Everywhere you turn at an auction, there’s a thrill in the air as potential buyers find something they want and set out to successfully bid against others who want the same thing. Thus, finding the true market value of each and every piece.
- Midland Bid Junkies commission rates are less than common estate sale companies.
- National customer base; we ship anywhere allowing us to find the best market price for your items.
- It’s easy! Conducting a sale by yourself is hard work. When conducting the sale by yourself you have to clean, price and sort everything. All taking time away from your daily schedule. Who has time for that? On top of that, once you’re done with a sale, are you really done? You still have to dispose of items that didn’t sell due to bad weather or lack of crowds and clean up. We can eliminate all of that stress and hard work. We can accept items at our store or make arrangements to pick items up from you. We'll sell them and send you a check.
- Safe & Secure. Don’t waste time waiting for people that say they want your item off of Craigslist or Facebook site. Feel safe in knowing that we’ll work with the customers so you don’t have to meet them at awkward times and locations.

- Lesson learned: "A recent consignor had several items that we picked up when we noticed an item destined for the burn pile. It happed to be an older board with a checkerboard painted on it. Turns out this item was an early sampler checkerboard and sold for $130 in our online auction! Better than going up in smoke.
