Whether you have one piece of equipment or a restaurant full of equipment, furnishings and smallwares we can assist you in turning those items into cash. For sellers with a small number of items to sell, our monthly Consignment Auctions are an excellent vehicle to sell those items. A wide selection of items from numerous sellers are combined for sale in one large online auction. These monthly Consignment Auctions attract hundreds of buyers from across the country. So even if you only have one item to sell your item is getting the same level of exposure as if you have hundreds of items to sell.

For sellers who are looking to liquidate an entire restaurant, we can work with you to meet your timeframe to vacate the premises. We conduct online auctions where the items remain at the site until the conclusion of the auction and removal. If time is of the essence or in the case of smaller establishments, we offer removal services to our Harrisburg warehouse. Your auction is conducted in the same manner from our warehouse and you are able to vacate your premises in a timely manner.

Since we specialize in food service equipment, furnishings and smallwares you can be confident that your items are being marketed to the right audience. Our bidders are in the food service industry and are looking for your products. We market each auction through a variety of print and online advertising, targeted newsletters, social media, and web promotion.
