Michaan's Auctions offers complementary walk-throughs at people’s homes. We have appraisers that are on the road 9 to 5, Monday through Friday looking at and giving complimentary auction estimates for items in people’s homes. We ask that there be twenty or more items. These estimates are verbal estimates that our appraiser feels the items in question will sell for at auction. There is no obligation to consign the property and no fee for this service. We view this as a community service because often times people do not know the fair market value of their property. Our staff will schedule a time that suites you to have our appraiser conduct the walk-through, usually within a week of your request. At that time, if you are happy with the auctions estimates and they meet our minimum of $1,000 to open a contract our appraiser will walk you through the consigning process.
