Frequently Asked Questions
1. I am not an antique dealer. Can I still come to the auction?
Yes. We welcome the public as well as dealers. Auctions are a great opportunity to furnish or decorate your home. Our facility is also handicap accessible, heated and comfortable. If you've never been to an auction before, this is a great place to start!
2. How do I get a Bid Card?
Our office is located just inside the main doors on the left. Present your drivers license and provide a little information. The process is simple and quick. There are no Fees for registering a bid card.
3. Can I preview items for an auction?
Yes. First, pictures can be previewed on our website. Then, we are open during the week, so stop by and preview everything. If your schedule doesn't allow a weekday visit, two hours prior to the begining of the auction we open early for preview.
4. How do I SELL things at auction? Do you accept single items or just full estates?
Crossroads sells almost ANY items of value from Vehicles to Paintings to Figurines to Tools and just about anything in between. We can sell just a few items or an entire household full of items. The first step is to contact us at 315-676-9091. We may ask you to take a few photos of the item(s) you wish to sell and text them to us as this can save us both some time. Once we have an idea of what you want to sell we'll decide if you can bring it to us or if we 'll need to pick it up. Once we have the item(s), we photograph/advertise them and sell them in our next auction. After the items are sold, your check is available on the following Friday. We deduct our commission and any pick up fees from the check so there are no upfront costs for you. Selling at auction is easy, efficient, reliable and the best way to generate the most money in the shortest amount of time. Remember, world's record prices are ALWAYS achieved at auction, not at garage or estate sales!
