WHY SHOULD I CONSIGN WITH FOTA?
Our online auctions are seen all over the United States and Canada. We do our best to get as many eyes on your items as we possibly can. We advertise nationally and in select markets to get as much exposure on our auction. Most of our auctions get tens of thousands of views. More exposure= more sales for you!
Examples of some of the items we accept:
We will sell entire estates and households. Call us to get more information.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT TO CONSIGN?
Yes, an appointment must be scheduled for consignment drop off. Call (240)490-5555 or email us
HOW DOES CONSIGNMENT WORK?
Once you drop off your items, we will catalog them in the next appropriate auction. This time frame varies based on the schedule of our auctions.
Once the auction ends, you are welcome to retrieve any unsold items, if desired. Please note, these items will need to be picked up within 72 hours. Please let us know at the time of drop off if you wish to have them returned. If you do not tell us or do not want them returned, we will donate all unsold items.
HOW DO I GET PAID?
You are welcome to call or email FOTA at any time to inquire about your auction items. We mail checks approximately 1 week after the auction ends. Please make sure we have your correct mailing address.
HOW DOES FOTA PRICE ITEMS?
All items/lots in our auction start at $5. We do not set reserves. We do our best to place your items in the appropriate sale, so they get the most attention for the type of item they are. We cannot guarantee what they will sell for
