Auctions vs Estate Sales: Why Bodnar’s Is the Best Choice When It’s Time To Liquidate Assets

Finding yourself in a position where you either have to plan the allocation of your loved one’s assets when they pass, or you have to liquidate an estate in the aftermath of a loved one’s passing, is extremely stressful. It can be overwhelming. The temptation to search the internet for someone — anyone — to organize an estate sale and just get that responsibility off your plate is immense. You have so much to worry about; determining the value of property and dispersing it to the right buyers is something best left to the experts.

Just wait for a second. Did you know how many people in your position have chosen to come to Bodnar’s Auction to orchestrate an estate auction in New Jersey and reaped rewards they didn’t think possible? With us, they realized that they don’t have to get stuck with unsold or undervalued assets because the entity running their estate sale didn’t know how to price items properly or lure the right buyers.

At Bodnar’s, we specialize in securing the proper prices for exceptional merchandise. We also help families unburden themselves in cases of hoarding or extreme collecting. We’ve had immense success helping families liquidate valuable assets that they don’t know what to do with. 

Here are just a few reasons you should contact us to spearhead your estate auction:

  • Experience — We are the largest location auction house in Central New Jersey, and that’s not an accident. Our team has, collectively, 200 years of experience in the antique and collectibles industry. We’re professionals who know how our industry works, and we use our expertise to help people every day.
  • Connections — What comes from years of experience? A network of buyers who are knowledgeable about all types of property, from comic books to furniture, and know how to bid reasonably and fairly on a wide variety of items.
  • Compassion — We’ve developed a close relationship with many seniors and their families, who all understand that we take their best interests to heart. That’s not just a nice concept; we get results when it comes time to auction off property.

Belongings might seem trivial, but they represent so much of what an individual cared about in his or her life. It’s difficult enough for families to deal with the health struggles or death of a loved one, without having to look at all these keepsakes and heirlooms and decide what to do with them. They’re not throwaway items, and trusting just anyone to sell them is the wrong move. If you’re trying to make sense of estate planning and getting confused as you weigh your options, call the leading local estate liquidators in New Jersey at Bodnar’s Auction today. We’ll help ease your burden at this trying time.

I’m happy with everything Joe and Janet did, you were both informative and were very helpful with the questions I had being that I was never in that position before. Janet’s response time was also positive for me. It was interesting to watch the auction live. I thought you did an amazing job and had a nice banter back and forth. You seem to be a good team! Thank you for all your hard work and making this difficult time of letting  my deceased father’s collectibles go an easy experience.

I would like to thank you for including me in your online sale.
Everything from none contact drop off, to none contact pick up, was handled with the outmost professionalism.
I appreciated your clear communication after the sale with a printout and an explanation of when I’ll receive my check.
Overall I was very please with the prices my jewelry achieved, some lot  went for less then I expected, others went for more, it’s all in the average.

Thank you very much

I come to your auctions often. You and your staff are great. Your change to an online auction on 4/9 is just another testament to your fine character and being thoughtful of others. The items are great no doubt, but a big reason I keep coming back is due to the culture you have created. Thank you. Art
