Our new office and showroom, located 1054 Summit Drive, Carmel, IN, is our new ‘permanent’ location. We were blessed to be able to transition our business model last year through the space we occupied beginning June, 2020, and have now moved into a slightly larger, more conventional, space in the same complex, off of Gradle Drive. We will remain available by appointment only, and appointments can be scheduled on our “Contact Us” page of this website.
Our business model will remain the same as it has been for the last year, with a focus on conducting online-only auctions for special collections, including coins, firearms, art glass, sculpture, pottery, etc., while continuing to offer our Premium Estate Sale Service, which involves our team inventorying and photographing items in an estate or moving situation, wherein all items remain in the home and are picked up by winning bidders on a scheduled day, or days depending on volume of items. This service has proven to be extremely effective and well-received by our buyer base.
One of the benefits of our new location is that we will be able to offer limited, reservations required, in-person bidders for select auctions. Our August 28th Fine Art, Fine Jewelry and Decorative Arts auction will be the first of that offering. Following the publishing of our online catalogue, bidders who subscribe to our email newsletter will receive an email containing a link to RSVP for the auction. Our limit for attendees is 25 persons. It is our hope that bidders will first review the catalogue, determine if there are a number of items upon which they would consider bidding, and THEN make a reservation to attend in person. While we are certainly eager to see familiar faces and friends, we do hope that only those persons who intend to bid actively on a number of items will have the opportunity to attend. For those who primarily with to engage socially, or only have interest in one item, we encourage you to attend one of our previews. We are happy to execute absentee bids, and will, of course, have online bidding available.
We are eager to continue this new era of Wickliff Auctioneers, and will continue to be a constant source of quality merchandise for our buyers, and will represent our sellers with integrity.
We thank you for your continued support!
