OUR SERVICES

​​​Whether it is your first sale, or you are an experienced auction host,

we are the auction company that will work for you.



By hiring CHOATE AUCTION SERVICE to conduct your sale, you will get

professional service, a friendly staff, and the best value for your dollar. 


Every auction is staffed with a ticket writer, a clerk, a cashier, two ringmen, 
and Bryan

as auctioneer. For larger sales, we have additional auctioneers and trained staff available.

The Choate Auction Service staff consists of experienced individuals who are educated and

knowledgeable. All of our auctions are organized in an appealing and effective manner

which enables buyers to preview the merchandise prior to and during the sale.


Our software streamlines all aspects of the auction from start to finish. B
uyers register before

the sale, the bids are input during the sale, and the buyer receives an invoice when they check out.

As a seller, you will receive a copy of each item sold and the bid price with your proceeds check.


ESTABLISHED CUSTOMER DATABASE


With over 45 years of auction experience, CHOATE AUCTION SERVICE has a fantastic following

of many customers. We are continually finding new clientele and keeping in touch with previous

buyers for upcoming sales via targeted marketing solutions. Ex: For a restaurant liquidation sale,

we will solicit used restaurant equipment dealers and restaurants from Oklahoma City to

Dallas/Ft. Worth and every area in between. For really unique or specialty items, we have been

known to bring in customers from as far away as California, New Mexico, Missouri, Kansas, and more.


ADVERTISING


Once we have your signed contract, your auction information will go on our website to notify 
potential

buyers of an upcoming sale. As the auction date nears, our website will be updated with photos and

descriptions of your items. We will advertise your sale via the local newspaper, or the closest metro

newspaper if in a small town. We will also utilize our database and target marketing as outlined

above to attract customers to your particular sale.


WE KEEP IT SIMPLE


With the exception of absentee bidding, government sales, real estate, or very unique sales,

we do NOT charge a buyer's premium. We would rather the buyers focus their time on the quality

of items for sale, rather than how much more they will be paying when sales tax and buyer's premiums

are added. By not charging a buyer's premium, we feel that we don't limit the number of buyer's willing

to come to your sale, and in return they will pay the fairest price.
