Seller Information


Marketing & Advertising

VanDerBrink Auctions works with their Sellers to sometimes make the auction an event and more than just an auction. Hog Roasts, Car shows, and more have been used at past auctions. This makes the auction exciting and can also bring in bidders. This will give bidders time to look at the cars and items before the auction. We also work with previews of items and scheduled hours. The line-up will be discussed with seller.

I prefer to sell in a mixed line-up to keep things exciting. VanDerBrink Auctions will discuss the line-up with the Seller. Tents, Decorations, Hall Rentals are also used with our auction. This will be discussed with the Seller has to the effectiveness and the costs pertained.

  • “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

    – Joyce Merriman, Carl Davis Collection

Thank you also for donating your services and commissions for the Sale of the 1932 Ford BB truck to the V-8 Foundation!”

  • “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
