Is Roadrunner Auctions the place you want to sell your items?
You will make the most money by matching your items with the best place to sell them; Consignment Store, Craigslist, Ebay or Amazon, Yard Sale or Auction House. If you decide an auction house is the way to go contact a couple of auction houses before making your decision.
How much are your items worth?
Market value is determined on demand and rarity as well as the economy. Also, sentiment often affects the value potential a consignor attributes to their item. More than one person will have to want to buy your item to drive the price up. We want your items to sell for as much as possible because our profits are based on how much your items sell for.
How do you consign an item or items at Roadrunner Auctions?
You will need to schedule a day and time for drop off under "consignor" using the easy to use scheduler located on the lower half of the home page of this website. When you arrive at your scheduled time you will place your items in a designated area and arrange your items in "lots", as you want them to be sold. Someone will review your items and you will be given an itemized receipt of the items you dropped off. We do not lot your items nor do we clean or repair your items.
Can Roadrunner Auctions pick up or deliver your items?
Roadrunner Auctions does not offer a pickup or delivery service at this time.

There are no upfront cost to you as a consignor when selling your items at Roadrunner Auctions. We offer a very competitive commission rate based on a sliding scale that ranges from 10% to 50%. The more your item sells for the more you as the consignor will profit. High dollar items, $500 and over will be negotiable. The are no charges for photography, insurance, cataloging and offering your items for sale using our website. Estate auctions and business liquidations (off-site auctions) will be negotiated after we view the location and determine the amount of items as well as labor costs.
How much will you make?
Roadrunner Auctions starts each lot at $5.00 so the amount you make will depend on the demand for your item. Your selling price will increase when multiple potential buyers want your item. Any unsold lots will be returned at no cost
