Efficiency, Ease and Integrity

Before you do anything, get a professional assessment on your possessions. You only have the opportunity to sell your items once, so make an educated decision on which auction company best meets your needs. Put our commitment and reputation to work for you. Call us for a confidential consultation!

Consigning with Hess Auction Group is an easy process. If you have items you’d like to consign with us, those items can either be dropped off in stackable, untaped boxes (appointment required) or picked up. You will get a personalized consignor number to help keep track of your inventory and all your items will be stored at our facility until it is time for us to sell them. Every time we include pieces under your consignor number in any of our auctions, you will receive an email or phone call letting you know.

  • All unpacking, handling and display of personal property at the Gallery.
