CSG Auctions will help you promote your event, collect your items, take quality photographs, conduct research on price and the best ways to list the item, write a detailed description, list the item on eBay, answer questions from prospective buyers, close the sale, contact the buyer/send an invoice, process payment, pack and ship the item, track shipment, and then mail you a check for the net proceeds.

For non-profit groups, all you need to do is help organize collecting the merchandise. CSG can even come to your event and hold an auction drive.

For individuals, all you need to do is drop off the items (pick-up service is also available), answer a few questions, and we will do the rest. Any information you can provide us to enhance the description will add to the interest of your item, which should help increase the selling price.
