Charity Benefit Auctions FAQs

In an effort to extend our commitment to friendly customer service, Auctioneerist Charity Auctions has compiled a list of FAQ concerning the basics of charity auctioning to help you get started. If you do not see your question listed below, always feel welcome to contact the friendly staff at Auctioneerist Charity Auctions for assistance.
Q: How much time in advance do you need to assist with my charity auction?
A: 6-8 weeks is optimal for Auctioneerist Charity Auctions to optimize your event. The months of May, June, October and November seem to be the prime months for charity auctions and our schedule fills up quickly during that time. The more notice you give us the better, but we can try to work with any time frame if you need to put on a last minute auction.
Q. A well known TV or radio personality has offered to perform our live charity auction for free. Is this option more optimal than hiring a professional auctioneer?
A: Most celebrities and TV/radio personalities are experienced public speakers, but they are not trained and experienced in efficiently executing fundraising auctions. Skilled charity auction professionals know the subtle nuances of human behavior and crowd dynamics. Energizing the bidders and getting the enthusiasm high is all part of having a successful charity auction. A trained and experienced fundraising auctioneer will get the highest bids possible and will easily return multiples of your investment. If the celebrity, TV, or radio personality would love to be a part of your event, they can be a guest speaker or a host of the entertainment or activity.
Q: We are a nonprofit organization with limited funding, is a professional auctioneer worth the investment?
A: Professional auctioneers are classically trained to stimulate the crowd and attain maximum bids. Allowing an amateur to conduct the auctioning segment of your event will most likely impact your revenue. A professional charity auctioneer from Auctioneerist Charity Auctions can yield hefty returns on your investment. With expert pre-event consultation, a fundraising auction professional provides expert guidance that pays dividends long before we pick up a microphone.
Q: Can Auctioneerist Charity Auctions provide assistance with procuring high quality items for our benefit auction event?
A: At Auctioneerist Charity Auctions, we offer consulting services and consignment items for your event. Our clients are frequently surprised by the premium quality donations that are available from willing donors. With planning and professional guidance, nonprofits can secure great items. Many great donations can come from approaching your network of contacts.
Q: Do you offer your services in package deals as well as individually?
A: Most of our many clients utilize our full service package and greatly benefit from the results; however we do offer our services individually to accommodate our clients’ needs and budget.
Q: Benefit auctions seem to be a beneficial source for our fundraiser. How do I get started?
A: Contact Auctioneerist Charity Auctions today and we can get started with the process of getting your benefit auction underway.
