Seller Information


Your Auction Online

VanDerBrink Auctions has been utilizing the online service for over five years with great success. Online bidding provides more exposure for your auctions and potentially bringing more bidders to compete for items on your auction. VanDerBrink Auctions has found that online bidding has increased auction prices, in return higher profits for sellers. VanDerBrink Auctions will write and provide your sales catalog, get your online auction ready for bidders. This service does include some added expenses to sellers and requires more preparation time; we will discuss these expenses and options with you. Not all auctions are able to be conducted online. All details pertaining to online bidding will be discussed with contract negotiation.

At VanDerBrink Auctions we will…

  1. Develop an auction catalog. Post the catalog to our website and also to the appropriate online service provider. This may be eBay Live Auctions, Proxibid, LiveAuctioneers, or other service. Fees for this service will be discussed with contract negotiations. Prices may vary.
  2. Approve bidders for the auction and provide winning bidder information.
  3. Answer all questions from bidders and watch the auction. We will also provide equipment and staff for online services.
  4. Invoice buyers and arrange shipping and pickup of item. This will be coordinated with sellers.
  5. Collect money from online sales.
  6. VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC can conduct your auction online and also on site. The internet has opened up a whole new arena and lets the world come to your auction. We have had bidders from many countries participate in our Seller’s auction.
  7. VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC can also conduct your auction as a “Timed Online Only” Auction. Sometimes this works best for a seller. We work with you to see what avenue works best for you. Advertising is still done along with this type of auction.

Timed Online Only Auction

VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC can also conduct an Online Only or Timed Auction for you. Sometimes a Seller does not want to have an on-site auction but still sell their collection, farm equipment, or other items. They have another new option with today’s advances in technology; it’s called an Online or Timed Auction. VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC creates a catalog with pictures and advertises and markets the items nationally and locally, but the only way Bidders can participate is online, using a national provider, and for only a specific time period. This works well for Seller’s that may have only a few items to a huge collection. At the end of the specified time, money is collected and the Bidders make arrangements to pick up their purchases. It’s a great way to market and sell, without setting up for an on-site auction.

  • “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
