What services do you provide?We do not buy items as we find that to be a conflict of interest. Quinn’s always strives to be in sync with our clients’ reasonable goals and objectives.
I believe my item is worth more than you say it is. What are my options?1. Do personal research. Search the web for auction results at Quinn’s from past auctions or live internet bidding sites to find market comparables. 2. Ask a staff member to seek 3rd party council. 3. Ask for or seek out a fair market value appraisal.
How do I know you will give me what I want for my stuff?1. There are no guarantees at auction. 2. The auction is a consignment process, which means we have an incentive to make you more money because that will make us more money. 3. We do not create the market but reflect it. With that in mind, if choose to sell through auction you have the ability to have an objective view of an item’s financial worth in the current market. People often find that most of their items have more emotional value than auction value.
What is the advantage of selling at auction?
What types of auctions do you have?
Our weekly auction will bring you 150,000+ registered bidders in the greater capital area, far more than anyone in this region. Our partner Rasmus, the largest commercial auctioneer in the region, has been online only now for close to 20 years calling their last live auction with us in 2003 when we sold the contents of DC restaurant institution Blackies’ House of Beef and Lulu’s Club Mardi Gras. Our almost two decade old partnership allows us to bring to you something that others just can’t.
We offer various specialty auctions, typically one to two a month. Our specialty sales include: Stamps & Coins, Jewelry & Watches, Dolls, Toys & Trains, Pottery & Porcelain, Military & Firearms, Japanese Art, and many other categories as our clients have items. We love building sales around your collections.To find out more about our upcoming auctions, and learn how we can help you sell your items, please contact us at email@example.com
