Detailed summary of items sold
Shackleton’s can handle sales of items ranging from fine art to farm machinery. We are also equipped to handle sales on site. When it comes to asset disposition, call Shackleton’s and feel confident knowing your items are being professionally handled.
Since 2013, Shackleton’s have conducted regular monthly auctions “online.” The popularity of online auctions has grown tremendously over the past few years, and we firmly believe it offers the best of both worlds to Buyers and Sellers
Benefits to Buyers:
You can preview the items for one week before bidding ends. You know exactly what you are bidding on, and allows you to research the item, to determine a realistic value.
You can create a “watch list” and see only the items you are interested in bidding on
You can bid from the comfort of your home, cottage, or wherever you are with a mobile phone
You can bid “anonymously” and not be intimidated by other bidders at a live auction.
You know exactly what time the item your interested in comes up for sale. This frees up your time for other activities
We are not affected by inclement weather, snow storms, etc.
We offer generous amounts of time to pick up your items after a sale, and give you various options for payment.
Benefits to Sellers
Exposure! Exposure! Exposure! Not only do we sell to the local market, but we have literally sold and shipped items all over the world! From Australia to Russia, and Vancouver to St. John, we have expanded our Buyer base to the global market. Attracting more Buyers means stronger prices for Sellers.
You can watch from the comfort of your home, all of your items being sold online. This provides greater accountability that all of your items are listed, and you can see the results immediately following the sale.
Whether it’s one item, or an entire estate, Shackleton’s can value personal property for a variety of purposes: estate probate, divorce, insurance, bankruptcy, etc. We have Appraisers on staff to conduct Real and Personal Property Appraisal Reports.
