 Frequently Asked Questions


I've planned many events, why do I need
to hire a professional now?
Partager Auction has conducted hundreds of auction events throughout the United States and uses this knowledge and experience to bring in the most money for each item. As a professional auctioneer, we are trained to effectively increase bids in a lively and efficient manner so that your event runs smoothly and profitably. You can potentially LOSE badly-needed funds by NOT utilizing the skills of a professional auctioneer.

How long in advance should I plan
my auction event?
Professional auctioneers get booked up quickly, especially since most companies/organizations hold weekend auction events. Since there are thousands of auctions held per year and only 52 weekends on the calendar, your event date may already be filled. You should consider contracting a date with Partager Auction at least 6-8 months before your event to ensure availability.

What qualifications does Partager Auction
have to properly conduct my auction?
Partager Auction is a longtime member of the California State Auctioneers Association. We have been licensed and/or bonded and insured to conduct auctions in other states, including IL, IN, LA, MA, TX as well as the City of New York.

How do I know whether to have
a silent or live auction?
You can have both! But experience and statistics prove that Live Auctions consistently generate about 80% of an organization's fundraising goal for the event. In a silent auction, you don't have a one-on-one salesperson at each item to "close the deal", so many items do not reach full value (or more). However in the Live Auction, your auctioneer focuses the audience on each and every item works every bid to the fullest extent.

How do I receive guidance to put
on an incredible auction event?
When you retain Partager Auction, you will receive unlimited consultations with us. We'll also provide our extensive, personalized "Auction Planning Guide" full of ideas, templates, resources and tips on everything you need to make your event a success.
