1. What do you charge to sell my items?
Bryant Auction prides itself with lower than industry standard commission rates, and top-of-the-line service and performance. Our commission is based on a sliding-scale, per item sold. We, however, under special circumstances may offer flat commission rates. The category, condition, quality, and quantity of items may all factor into your commission rates. We can also purchase your items outright. That is, you can forget waiting for your items to sell, and receive immediate payment the same day.
2. Why should I chose you to sell my items?
We believe in the best or nothing. This applies to every part of our business practice, structure, and model. In the auction industry, like many others, you get what you pay for. So be careful not to always go for the "cheapest" auction service. Usually, bargain auction companies end up costing you the most. We will market your items to our massive customer database in a variety of direct ways, yet in a cost-efficient manner. But don't take our word for it--we have numerous testimonials you may check out here.

We stay pretty busy all year long, and as a result we have great relationships with a wide-variety of advertisers. This allows us to be eligible for great advertising rates, which equate to a cost savings for you.
