Preparation

As the Shattuck team, we are dedicated to helping our clients realize the maximum value in the sale of their collateral, idle assets, or surplus property inventories at auction. We're experts at turning chaos into order, and as your asset disposition team we'll work hard to ensure that our auction works for you as smoothly, efficiently, and profitably as possible. In addition to auction setup, we can also provide an initial appraisal, retrieval, and secure storage of your property, all with a quick turnaround time. 

Once we begin processing your assets for auction, a detailed description is crafted for each lot to be paired with photos from our talented staff to provide the most accurate depiction of the items possible. We're committed to transparent business practices and extend this to how we present each auction lot. By doing so, bidders can be confident in their purchase, even if they never see the items in person. And a satisfied buyer means a satisfied seller.

 

Marketing

Your property is valuable to us, and we take our fiduciary responsibilities to you very seriously. We go all out for our customers because we understand success isn't guaranteed. Our marketing team considers every angle and makes every effort to get the highest return on your investment. 

To maximize exposure, we develop a marketing plan as unique as your auction. Because of our diverse experience with all manner of equipment and merchandise, we are able to utilize a combination of internet, print, and mixed-media advertising, as well as targeted direct marketing to industry-specific individuals whom we know would be interested in purchasing your type of equipment. This cross-marketing helps to ensure a commercially reasonable sale. 

Our dedicated auction site, SlapSale.com, uses custom-built software application to provide buyers the best user interface in the business. Every auction lot is displayed clearly on the listings pages with a photo, title, current bid and time remaining. Delivering a user-friendly easily accessible website that facilitates our ultimate goal of getting top dollar for our client's assets.

 

Finalizing

Just because your auction is over doesn't mean our job is finished. We're your partners through every step of the process, handling the logistics after your auction has closed on the website. To keep things easy for our consignors, we continue to handle every aspect of the sale. We'll take care of receiving payments and managing fickle buyers to handling all sales tax collections and reporting to providing a complete accounting for your records and making sure every item gets out the door. 

We're there to the end, making sure that everything leaves your space in an orderly fashion. We handle the removal under strict dates and times for bidders to pick up items they have purchased. By supervising removal, we ensure that nothing is harmed and everything leaves in a timely manner, so your space is ready for whatever's next.
