There is more that goes on behind the scenes of an auction than most people realize. Taking photographs, designing advertising and catalogues, navigating complex software, and developing marketing strategies are just some of the many tasks an auction company handles every day. At Black and Gold Auctions, we make use of more than 30 years of experience and expertise in the auction industry so bidders are prepared to pay the best price and compete for your items online or in a live public venue on auction day.

Chuck Price is not only the owner and lead auctioneer at Black and Gold Auctions, he is also a certified personal property appraiser and a member of the Certified Appraisers Guild of America. We include appraisals in our services.

Typically, no. You cannot register online without a credit card. We use credit cards for security purposes to verify a bidder’s identity. Registering with a credit card is for our security, the seller’s, and yours to prevent fraudulent bidders. The online software that we use has security measures in place to protect your credit card information and we do not have direct access to your information.

Proxibid’s integrated payments system, APN, was developed specifically for Proxibid sellers and is designed to keep payment information secure. Proxibid is one of the only providers that does not share financial information with merchants directly. All cardholder information is protected using firewalls, encrypted transmission of data and vulnerability management.

Our other software is Hibid. Hibid maintains full PCI compliance from beginning to end. They use up-to-date SSL certificates on all pages dealing with a bidders’ personal information or bidding. “When we retain the credit card information for your use, we maintain full PCI compliance on our servers.” (You can read more about PCI compliance here.)

A maximum bid placed online works similar to an absentee bid at a live auction. The feature is very convenient if you don’t want to watch the auction the whole time and you don’t have to increase your bid when someone outbids you, the software does it for you. If you submit the highest amount you are willing to pay for a lot, the software will place the next highest bid when someone outbids you up to your maximum amount. Other bidders cannot see how much your maximum bid is and your bid is only increased if you are outbid, so you may get an item/lot for less than your maximum bid. If there is a reserve amount on an item, the software will increase your bid until the reserve is met. We rarely use reserves on lots and you will always know if there is a reserve required before you bid online. In the case of a tie maximum bid, the bidder who entered the amount first will be the winning bidder, just like in a live auction.

We will email you your winning bids and an invoice within 24 hours of the auction end. Most of the time it will show you as “Item Won” on the auction page online.

Yes! We offer in-house packing and shipping of our items. If you want us to ship your items, the cost of packing and shipping will be added to your total and a new invoice will be sent to you showing the total due. Packing and shipping will be handled in-house on smaller items. For exceptionally heavy, fragile, awkward, or those that consist of large numbers of items, such as sets of dishes, the packing charge will be based on the amount of materials and labor required. The actual cost of the postage will be added to the packing charge to determine the total shipping charge. You always have the option of picking up your items at our offices and we will waive the charge if you do. Just let us know as we pack and ship very quickly after the auction. Our carriers of choice are FedEx Ground and USPS, whichever is most economical. If you have other shipping preferences, please let us know and we will try to accommodate them. We will make every effort to ship within 48 hours of auction end. If you have any questions about our shipping policies, please feel free to call or email info@blackandgoldauctions.com.

Payment is expected on the day of pickup for online auctions and the day of the auction for live events. We accept cash, credit cards, PayPal, and checks. Local buyers can use credit cards, cash, or personal check. Nothing will be removed from the auction site until it is paid for. Payment is expected within 48 hours of invoice for shipped items. If you wish to make payment arrangements other than credit card for shipped orders, we ask that you contact Black and Gold Auctions at least 24 hours before the auction. We will be happy to work with you in that way. We will not charge any credit card on file unless you fail to pick up your item or contact us before the end of the auction.

We make every attempt to contact the buyer and schedule a pick-up time or shipment. Items purchased in online auctions will be charged within 48 hours of the auction end unless other payment arrangements have been made. Items will be held for 30 days, after which the item(s) will become the property of Black and Gold Auctions and will be resold at auction. You are still liable for your bids even if you do not claim your items.

Yes! We are happy to deliver any items for a fee. Our typical delivery/pick up fee is $75 per hour. We can work with you depending on the item.

Items purchased at an auction are sold “AS IS” but we sometimes guarantee an item if we have tested it. If the auctioneer says “I guarantee it to work,” then we will gladly honor that promise and refund your bid if it does not work. In an online auction, our guarantee is the description. If we say it works, then it does. If we say its gold, then it is. If it has been untested then you are purchasing the item based on the photos and description. We make every effort to describe our lots accurately and will refund the bid price if an item is not as described.

We use the leading software system in the industry to keep track of every item we auction to the highest bidder and every person that does business with us.

As a bidder, you don’t have to wait for the auction to end at a live auction to pay for your item. As soon as you win the highest bid on an item at a live auction it is logged in our system with an inventory number and lot number assigned to that auction. You can pay without delay.

For online auctions, we download the winning bids into our system within 24 hours and email winning bidders an invoice. You will receive an invoice with each lot you won and the amount. We keep a record of your purchases and can print out your entire purchase history if you need it.

A fast-paced auction is one of the most efficient ways of converting property and assets into immediate cash. With the combination of pre-sale marketing and the auctioneer’s attention-getting chant, you could have enthusiastic, attentive buyers aggressively competing to purchase your property.

Auctions are exciting and fun! Auctions exhilarate and captivate everyone, from the opening call of “Would you bid?” to the call of “Sold!”. There’s a thrill in the air as potential buyers find something they want and set out to successfully bid against others who want the same thing. Auctions bring out the competitive nature in all of us!

We have auctioneers and experts on staff with years of experience and specialized knowledge to get you top dollar for your property.

It depends on the item. We try to put each item in the best auction to get the highest bid. Sometimes that is online; and sometimes that is in a live auction. Founder and owner, Chuck Price, has more than 30 years of experience in the auction business. He has worked in every aspect of the business from moving furniture to auctioneering. Black and Gold Auctions is experienced in real estate, antiques, furniture, estates, business, and all types of personal property auctions via live, online, and live webcast auctions. Trust us to make the best decision for you.

Everything sells at an auction! Well, not everything, but almost. We sell antique and modern furniture, small and large appliances, household items, cars, trucks, guns, coins, jewelry, lamps. Just ask us and we can find someone who wants it.

High-end, modern, and household items in good condition are currently doing the best at auctions across the country. The market changes frequently and what was hot last year, may not be the case this year. Coins, precious metals, and firearms generally always do well. Give us a call and we will be more than happy to talk about sales trends and what is selling well in our area.

Yes. We do our best to weed out items that cannot be repaired and that should be discarded. When you bring items to the auction we ask that it be in good condition. You will get the most money for items that are in good working condition and that are clean. Antiques are sometimes the exception.

Clothing (unless vintage or specialty) does not sell and we suggest donating clothing to your local charity. Pressboard furniture, older box TVs, and computer monitors are other items that people do not want to buy. We also don’t generally sell food at the auction, although you will occasionally see farm fresh eggs or pecans on Tuesdays.

A good rule of thumb is if you can’t sell it at a yard sale, you probably can’t sell it at auction. Please call us before you have a yard sale :).

Yes! Our typical delivery/pick up fee is $75 per hour to pack and move, which includes movers, a truck, and our trailers, and $15 per hour to setup your items for the Tuesday Consignment auction.  We can work with you depending on your needs.

You can also bring your items to us. Please contact the offices before bringing any items for auction, there are some things that we just cannot sell. Our email is info@blackandgoldauctions.com and our phone number is 573-445-7333. We are happy to discuss any item you have.

Yes. We accept reserves on high-value items like vehicles and real estate. Please let us know before you put your item in an auction if you would like a reserve price.

Unfortunately, the only thing you can do is be the highest bidder on the lot in question and pay for the item. It is very important to be sure you are ready to part with your property before you hand them over to us.

No. To be fair and honest to the bidders at auction, we only allow buybacks on rare occasions with extenuating circumstances.

We typically run items through auctions within 30-60 days after we receive them. Each auction is different and we do our best to get your items in the right auction where they will bring the most money. Sometimes that can take a while, but if you are in a hurry to liquidate, we can work within your timeline. We have more than one option for auctions.

The Tuesday Consignment auction has the quickest turnaround time of less than two weeks, specialty auctions take longer, and we like to advertise real estate and live estate auctions for longer periods of time.

We only charge advertising cost with real estate auctions. We won’t charge for any other auction advertising costs.

We make our money by charging a commission on what we sell at auction. You can be assured we will try to get the best price for you because of our commission based services. Our commissions typically run between 15-30% based on the items you are selling and how we sell it. The Tuesday Consignment auction has a fixed commission schedule you can find here.

Our auctions services include all advertising (except on real estate), equipment, our facility if required, and marketing. We will never charge you for the use of our building, tables, auction software, photographs, or design of marketing materials.

Remember that each auction is different so the commission will vary, but we will work that all out before we auction your items so you know what you will be charged.

We typically mail checks within a week after your items sell at auction.

No! We will handle all the details. Go relax.

We use the leading software system in the industry to keep track of every item we auction to the highest bidder and every person that does business with us.

As a seller, we assign you a number. Each piece of property you consign is cataloged and assigned to your seller number and then given its own lot/inventory number for a specific auction.  At the end of an auction, we provide you a settlement report that lists each item’s lot number, description, and what the lot sold for at auction as opposed to a lump sum. We keep a seller history with everything we have ever auctioned for you in our system and can access it if the need arises later.
