Auction Overview

The Arnold Center Auction House serves mid-Michigan as a leader in the auction industry providing the most contemporary and aggressive means of asset liquidation available to our valued clients.  Our auction professionals will help you understand the auction process and help you choose which auction method (live, simulcast, on-site, or at your location) will best help you achieve your financial and physical goals.

The Arnold Center Auction House has a large following of interested buyers locally and worldwide.  Our auctions are live, with seating for over 200, and also simulcast where people from around the world can bid for items and have them shipped.  We’ve sold and shipped furniture to New York, a bow to Australia, and multiple guns have been shipped to dealers nationwide.

We maintain a Federal Firearms License and a Class D Vehicle Broker License so you have comfort in knowing these items will be sold safely and correctly.

We have the availability of taking one or two items at a time or a trailer full and can store your items in a well maintained facility with secure, indoor storage.

As other auctioneers, we work on a commission basis based on the selling price of the item. However, in our case, all proceeds we receive go back into our program for the individuals we serve.

Consistent with the fundamental purpose of our Access Midland and Gladwin County Connection programs a variety of skill building areas will be available to the persons we serve. These include, but certainly not limited to, preparing estates for auction, packing and shipping, auction clerking, customer relations, internet clerking, auction ring person, etc.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to come by and see the auctions in action.

Moving? Closing a business? Retiring? Experiencing difficult financial times? Divorcing? Liquidating? Representing the assets of an estate? Selling your antiques and collectibles? Generating capital for your next venture?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, WE CAN HELP!

The Auction Advantage

Auctions have been a part of our history for a reason—they comprise a sales method that is beneficial for everyone involved. For those looking to liquidate, whether at a personal or business level, auctions provide an opportunity to offer items up for sale to interested bidders and sell those items to the highest bidder, thus generating and maximizing fair market value without the hassle of pricing items individually or disposing of excess, as is often the case with a typical yard or garage sale. The addition of an internet auction component has allowed the auction market to expand and reach those outside our local realm by including bidders who may be located in other states or countries. This aspect of our auction service allows bidders to bid live during the auction through an internet connection that provides live audio and video feed to maximize the bidding experience.
