Stags conducted their first Online Timed Auction dispersing the contents of the historic Stag Inn, Rackenford, EX16 8DT through Stags own website. The sale attracted astounding interest and was viewed online by 9,262 people during its 10 day duration. The potentially revolutionary online selling portal attracted interest from as far afield as Wiltshire, Cornwall and the midlands with over 150 actual purchasers registered from 8 different counties.
The time and logistic friendly method used was a refreshing revelation and its success outlines the importance of being able to offer this service to the benefit of our future clients. The most notable price was £425.00 for an attractive Splat Back Carver Chair with most lots surpassing both the auctioneer’s and the vendor’s expectations. Harvey Pile, Stags’ online auction expert commented “The auction has been a huge learning curve and has re-enforced the importance of offering both traditional and progressive methods in combination with a huge depth of experience and marketing initiatives”.
The auction has been a resounding success that met with the client’s instructions to maximise the value of the contents of the public house without the need to either transport all the items to another auction or have the headache of potentially 200 people at a sale at one time.
