Turn your unwanted items into cash!
Whether you have an entire estate, spare household items & primitives, commercial items, or industrial items; our twice weekly online consignment auctions will generate you income by selling at online auction prices!
Do you have an estate or large number of items you’d like hauled to our facility? We also offer hauling and packing services that cover a large geographical area at an hourly fee. For additional information, please contact Brad Ahlvers at 319.331.9030 (leave message if unavailable) or 319.351.8888.
If you would rather drop your items off at our facility, visit the cashier booth in the main building. We will need you to fill out a blank consignment sheet with your name, address, phone number, and the list of items you are interested in selling.
If you have quite a few items to sell, there is the option of printing and filling out a consignment sheet directly from the Sharpless Auctions website. We also accept handwritten lists of items.
You will be paid directly from your consignment sheet so please list Furniture, large Appliances and Electronics, and other larger items separately. For smaller collectibles and household items, please generalize by categories such as Glassware, Pots and Pans, Dishes, Decorative Items, Carnival Glass, Precious Moments, Shop Items, Tools, Yard Tools, etc. Your descriptions are important and aid in cataloging your items for our online auctions!
Your check can be mailed directly to you or you can pick it up at the auction during business hours. Checks are available the first Friday following the auction. If you have the check mailed to you, they are also sent out that Friday.
EXCEPTION: Anyone who buys a large appliance has it guaranteed to work if it is catalogued GUARANTEE. The buyer has a week to return the unit and your entire check will be held for one week to the following Friday.
We encourage sellers to bring their consignments Wednesday thru Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm. (Mondays are auction pick up days.) We take photographs and briefly describe your items for sale to be published on our website and our online auction website to be seen by thousands of potential bidders. (For example, on our HiBid online auction website, for our New Year’s Day 2021 auction, more that 136,000 potential bidders viewed our page!) Most, but not all, small items are grouped into lots. Larger items and more valuable small items are sold individually, at our discretion. We recommend that you view BEFORE YOUR BID on ANY online auction item(s). We are open Mondays thru Saturdays 9 AM to 3 PM every week for viewing. You are welcome to inspect AND OPEN any boxed items!
If you have any questions about selling, feel free to contact our office at 319.351.8888
