West Coast's Largest Full-Service Auction House

Now Accepting Consignments for our Upcoming Auctions

Michaan's Auctions is currently accepting consignments for our monthly Gallery Auctions. We are looking for quality fine art, American and European furniture and decorative arts, Asian works of art, fine jewelry and timepieces. We handle single items as well as entire collections and estates. With exceptional prices achieved for art, antiques and collectibles, Michaan's is committed to our client's success while providing exceptional customer service.

When consigning property the seller retains ownership until the sale of the item(s) at auction. When property is consigned to auction, the expertise of our specialists and professional staff is devoted to helping you achieve an outstanding price at auction. This is accomplished in many different ways: direct mail marketing, Michaan's email notification, LiveAuctioneers email notification and advertising in local publications and trade papers. Each client receives a signed contract stating our conditions of sale, commission rates and fees.

For our services Michaan's Auctions will retain a sellers commission on the final hammer price of each lot sold at auction, calculated as follows:

  • 10% of all individual auction lots selling above $7001
  • 15% of all individual auction lots selling between $3501 - $7000
  • 20% of all individual auction lots selling between $1001 - $3500
  • 25% of all individual auction lots selling between $201 - $1000
  • 35% of all individual auction lots selling between $1 - $200

After you consign you will receive a listing of the property we have received which includes a full description and estimated price range. If your property is scheduled for an Gallery Auction detailed photographs will be taken of the item and posted on our website, www.michaans.com and www.liveauctioneers.com and in our printed catalogs. As a courtesy Michaan's Auctions does not charge photography fees. Also, if a lot does not sell, we will not charge the consignor insurance or a buy-in fee to take the item back.
