Many people ask us "Why should I consign to auction rather than sell outright"?

The answer is quite simple, competition. Auction has been proven to be the most efficient high return means of converting your art, antique and personal property to cash, quickly, easily and with no inconvenience to you. When an item or estate is consigned to Coyle’s auction you have an entire audience of live, phone and absentee bidders competitively bidding against one another driving the price to its market value. In addition, as an individual it would be difficult for you to independently try to sell your pieces without the knowledge of the current market or how to reach potential buyers. At Coyle’s it is our job to properly utilize a nationwide advertising and promotional program to ensure that your pieces get maximum exposure to prospective buyers. If pieces warrant, we photograph your merchandise (at no extra charge to you) and publish the photographs with our advertising. We promote our auctions in the "Antiques and the Arts Weekly ("The Bee")", The Boston Globe, brochures, and local media.

In our twenty one years conducting auctions we have had many success stories with consignors. One example why it is often wiser to consign rather than have your pieces bought outright happened locally when a couple called Coyle’s with a chest they were using for a baby changing table. They thought they wanted to sell it for around $500.00. Michael Coyle, the head auctioneer, visited the couple and recognized that the chest was valuable and encouraged the couple to consign it to Coyle’s Auction rather than sell it outright. The couple was overjoyed when the chest they had been using to change their baby sold at auction for over $10,000.
