Seller Information


Auction Planning

VanDerBrink Auctions will work with the sellers as a team with one goal-a fun and successful auction. We will sit down with you and develop a plan that is especially for your auction. VanDerBrink Auctions works with our Sellers every step of the way. We are available and here for you and all your questions. We are just an e-mail or phone call away. We will respond to your questions as soon as we can and get you your answer or solution. On Real Estate, we work with you from listing to close. We can also sell your Real Estate in various formats of selling. We work to get you the highest dollar possible.

VanDerBrink Auctions promotes, assists in the arrangement, and conducts your auction. We realize that not every auction is the same. We customize a plan of advertising, set-up, and marketing that is customized for your auction. We have a fabulous Auction staff of auctioneers, clerks, and friendly office personal. We have a mobile office and can conduct business on-site at most any location. We work with our sellers on arrangement of their auction, or can arrange-set up the entire sale. We have many venders that we work with, and also research which methods are the most cost effective for our seller’s auctions. VanDerBrink Auctions, will handle all the marketing, advertising, and all those phone calls about your sale. We will only include your phone number if you request. We work as your personal “secretary” screening calls and forwarding only the important ones to you. We know how busy getting ready for a sale can be.

VanDerBrink Auctions will work on inventories, marketing, advertising, and help arrangements on the site the week of the auction. VanDerBrink Auctions handles the inventory and descriptions of all items to be sold. We formulate a catalog and use this for on-line selling and also as a printable format for Bidders to print off the internet and bring to the sale as a tool for bidding. The inventory process is discussed and a schedule set up to complete the inventory. Any cleaning supplies, trailers, skid loaders, Porta Pots, or equipment, help for set up, boxes, etc. needed for set up will be additional cost to the sellers. VanDerbrink Auctions will and can arrange these items at an additional expense to the seller’s. If VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC is requested to do the set-up, this will be discussed and charges.

VanDerBrink Auctions will work with the seller’s best interests in mind. The Auction is a great and wild, yet interesting way of selling. We will work to do our best to obtain the best possible price on that day. Any sale hat is well advertised, marketed, with active bidding, and professionally run will bring what the market will show that day in time. Advertising and Marketing are the key to any auctions success.

VanDerBrink Auctions prefers that all items will be sold with No Reserve. We also can work with our sellers if they wish to have a reserve on an item. Real Estate auctions may be sold with reserve or without reserve. If Real Estate is sold with reserve, it is sold subject to confirmation of the seller. This means that the seller will be consulted as to the final price obtained. This is always discussed with the Seller before the sale, as to evaluate their expectations. This also gives VanDerbrink Auctions time to evaluate and educate the seller as to Real Estate markets, trends, and possible other avenues in selling their Real Estate. VanDerBrink Auctions can sell Real Estate by auction or Private Listing. Commissions and fees pertaining to an auction with Reserve will be disclosed and discussed with the seller.

  • “Sell them Good!" said Toppy and Vanderbrink Auctions delivered; that is the cars and all the police memorabilia in Nevada, Missouri last October 31, 2008. This private collection of cars, 60 in all, was a 50 year passion for cars by one 96 year old retired pharmacist. It took over seven months to get them cleaned up and running, (all but one) and they all sold in less than three hours. It was an amazing sight! Yvette and her family came to give it all they had and, "Sold them Very Good". So good that she is in charge of our next big auction this October. We never even considered any other auctioneer, Yvette has exceptional skills, insight and energy, and with the personal touch that means so much; after all it took Toppy 50 years to collect the masterpieces; Yvette Vanderbrink handled the project with the pride "Toppy" deserved.”

    – Toppy Clark & Son

  • “Thank you very much for all your help. You are the best auctioneer I have ever worked with, you always return calls promptly and you always have the answers to my questions. Larry goes to at least 30 auctions per year and I’m always happy when Larry is going to one of your auctions. Larry is also impressed with you and he doesn’t say things like that much. Thank You!”

    – Darby Z.

  • “I believe I've said 'Thank You' several times already and I do greatly appreciate your determination and experience. I've strongly praised you to my family and friends for the beautiful video you put together for Henry on the website. It's no wonder you have such a strong, widespread following! Thanks, again!”

    – Twila Bents, The Henry Bents Estate

  • “We were so pleased with our auction yesterday we don't know how to thank you. We had never attended an auction that was so well organized, and went so smooth. The screen made a world of difference, every one could see the items on the block so easily. The internet calling in to join in the auction was just wonderful. You must have advertised in just the right places to have that many calls during our auction.

    We want to let you know that if we hear of anyone needing an auctioneer, you will be the first to be recommended. Again, thanks so much for being so organized, and doing such a splendid job for us. Bless you.”

    – Milt and Audree Beyer, Classic Cars - Gas & Oil Signs & More at Auction

  • “Glad to have done business with you and your company. We will need to do this again at a later time. Thank you and tell your staff how much we appreciate them and their expertise.”

    – Joyce Merriman, Carl Davis Collection

  • “Thank you VanDerBrink Auctions for a great Sale. WE are absolutely thrilled with the results and thank you. It was amazing that over 300 on-site bidders from 23 states and 2 countries and over 130 on-line bidders from all over the US and 4 countries were actively bidding for our collection. Thank you also for donating your services and commissions for the Sale of the 1932 Ford BB truck to the V-8 Foundation!”

    – Ron & Shirley Stauffer; Portland, Indiana

  • “The sale was conducted very well, lots of buyers (good marketing!), good prices, nice selection of cars (something for everyone!).

    I am very pleased with the final bid of our car. I honestly didn't expect it to sell as high as it did.

    You are a class act, Yvette! Thank you for allowing us to sell our car during the sale. I felt like it belonged there, with the rest of RCs cars. It was a good thing.”

    – Jill Edinger
