Rock Island Auction Company Achieves World Record in Firearms Sales
Rock Island Auction Company has again achieved a new world record for firearms sold for the calendar year 2008. Our very successful sale this past weekend put us over $31 million in sales this year.
-(AmmoLand.com)- Rock Island Auction Company – We are currently seeking consignments for our upcoming spring auction. We have room for about 700 quality arms to fill out the sale. If you have one gun or an entire collection sell with the #1 auction house in the world for firearms Rock Island Auction Company.
Reasons you should sell with Rock Island Auction Company:
– We get results. In today's economy we achieved a record no other firearms auction house has achieved. As of 2007 no other auction achieved yearly sales of 20 million except Rock Island Auction Company. Now in 2008 our sales are over 30 million. Come join our success in 2009.
– We actually sell what we offer. Our sales rate of 97% is achieved in nearly every sale. Buyer's come to buy. Many of our competitors cannot come close to actually selling all the items they place at auction. A recent east coast auction company touted “the gun event of the year” will bring in 16 million. They even went so far as to say “extraordinary results for extraordinary times.” In our view the 11 million achieved was extraordinarily low compared to their own expectations and the really only extraordinary thing about the sale was nearly 25% of the items offered did not sell. At Rock Island Auction Company we pride ourselves that it is a real auction and we sell at an extraordinary rate of 97%.
– We have the most competitive contract selling rates in the trade and do not have sliding scale contracts that are deceiving and could cost you way more than you think. We have no hidden fees. Beware of those that charge 1% for insurance. We keep it simple with a simple percentage so that the better we do for you the better we will do for ourselves. We are partners in achieving spectacular results.
– We sell more quality firearms than any other auction house. As a matter of fact we sell more firearms period. Don't believe the claims you see in the print media. We are #1 and as such have a huge customer base.
– We have the finest web site of any firearms auction company. Our web site gets traffic! Don't take our word view the links below from Quantcast reports. Our Internet site attracts bidders throughout the world. We get results. Take a look at our monthly traffic, and site rank compared to some of our competitors.
– Our marketing efforts include the Internet as described above as well as full page advertisements in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and Orlando Sentinel. We also advertise worldwide in industry publications such as Sporting Classics, Double Gun Journal, Gun Digest, Shotgun News, Gun Mart, Antique Week, Classic Arms and several other magazines and newspapers.
– We have the finest facility in the world 23,000 square feet dedicated to the auctioning of fine antique and collectable firearms
– Award winning catalog with in depth descriptions and every item photographed in color.
– We cater to all level of collecting. At RIAC we understand that different markets provide better opportunities for each piece of your collection. We do not “cherry pick” your collection then send the balance to a farm auction. In order to obtain the best price for you we offer two types of venues – our Premiere Sale or our Regional Sale. Either way you benefit from the strength of the Rock Island name and massive customer base.
– We make it easy as we pick up large collections.
Lastly and most importantly this is the time to sell. The economy does not seem to have impacted gun sales. The opposite is actually true. News reports are saying the economy and the new incoming administration are pushing sales up and we saw that this weekend at Rock Island Auction Company. Again we say sell with the best and join in our success. Let us get top dollar for you. Give us a call.
