Our Services

The Arnold Center is not only dedicated to maximizing the value of your assets, but also to assisting you through every aspect of the selling process. If you're moving, downsizing, or settling a friend or relative's estate, you may be facing what seems to be the daunting task of sorting, packing, and disposing of items, whether by donation or sale. Let us do that work for you! We have experienced individuals who can assist in every aspect of the process, including sorting, packing items, determining the best avenue for each item's marketability, delivering auction items to the auction house, and even cleaning homes in preparation for new tenants.

The Auction Advantage

Auctions have been a part of our history for a reason—they comprise a sales method that is beneficial for everyone involved. For those looking to liquidate, whether at a personal or business level, auctions provide an opportunity to offer items up for sale to interested bidders and sell those items to the highest bidder, thus generating and maximizing fair market value without the hassle of pricing items individually or disposing of excess, as is often the case with a typical yard or garage sale. The addition of an internet auction component has allowed the auction market to expand and reach those outside our local realm by including bidders who may be located in other states or countries. This aspect of our auction service allows bidders to bid live during the auction through an internet connection that provides live audio and video feed to maximize the bidding experience.
