Welcome To Deal Hunter Auctions & Estate sales

Before We Begin

Unlike traditional live auctions or eBay online only auctions, Deal Hunter brings you a piece of every aspect of the auction buying experience. We are a little bit traditional (with previews and pickups), a little bit eBay (online bidding), and something altogether different (event based, photo catalogs and credit card only payments).

Even if you’re familiar with our auctions, take a look around, you will likely find information about our process, policies
or techniques which will help you better navigate the site and have the best bidding experience possible.


Event Based Sales

Unlike eBay or craigslist, which sell a single item to a single buyer, is an event based liquidation site and each event sells many assets to many buyers. Each auction has a set location, preview, closing and removal.

Deal Hunter Supervised Events

From the time you decide to liquidate your excess assets until you turn the empty space over, Deal Hunter provides the evaluation, identification, marketing, sales, transaction and site management to assure a turn-key, low impact success. Sellers only need to identify items to be liquidated (or not), then Deal Hunter can independently manage every aspect of the liquidation process.

Bulk Sales

In some circumstances, assets are best suited for bulk sale in their entirety to a single purchaser. DealHunter can
provide a sales solution that assures the Seller achieves the most commercially reasonable sale within the framework
of the schedule and removal requirements.

Online Inventories & Valuations

The relocation, redeployment and liquidation process depends upon having accurate information to make good decisions. Deal Hunter can quickly prepare detailed asset inventories complete with digital photos, description, manufacturer, model, serial numbers and location codes. Reports are available in both spreadsheet and fully searchable online form, allowing clients from across the country to collaborate in real time to refine inventor allocation decisions.
The low impact and flexibility of the internet only sale affords Deal Hunter the ability to provide an infinite number of solutions customized to the unique requirements of our clients.


1. Evaluation

Deal Hunter will interview you regarding the specifics of your project then prepare a schedule and tailored sales solution.

2. Engagement

Deal Hunter will forward a letter of agreement outlining the details of sale.

3. Identification

Deal Hunter will provide staff and/or materials necessary to prepare a detailed inventory. The identification process must be completed by the seller.

What is the identification process?

Identification consists of applying a barcode label, preparing a detailed description with dimensions, manufacturer and model number, taking a digital photo and assigning a location code.

4. Web Posting

Deal Hunter prepares the event details and inventory for posting to the web. Each event is featured by closing sale date and has unique terms of sale. Most events are posted with 1-3 days of the identification process.

5. Online Preview & Bidding

Once the event is posted to the web, the inventory is fully searchable for preview and immediate bidding. While the bidding phase can be as short as a few hours, we recommend a preview/bidding period of 10-14 days for maximum success.

6. Marketing

The marketing plan begins by utilizing a combination of direct mail, newspaper, online newsletters, telemarketing, web promotion, online advertising, social media and press releases immediately upon posting.

7. Inspection/Open House

While not strictly required, most events include a one day pre-sale inspection or open house, staffed either by Deal Hunter or the seller. The inspection is usually conducted one or two days prior to the event closing.

8. Event Closing

The event will begin closing online starting with the first catalog item and continues 3-10 items per minute until all items have been sold. Deal Hunter utilizes a dynamic closing system which automatically extends the closing time on any item which is being actively bid upon. Most events conclude within 2-6 hours.

9. Transaction Processing

At the conclusion of the sale, all bidder transaction are automatically processed for payment and sales receipts are e-mailed to the winning bidders.

10. Removal

The removal is supervised by either Deal Hunter staff or the seller. Buyers come prepared to disconnect and remove assets. Most purchasers use professional movers. Removals can be scheduled during the day, evenings and/or weekends. Deal Hunter can coordinate and supervise all aspects of the removal with building management. Most removals require 1 or 2 days, either from 9-5 or 6-11 PM.

11. Reconciliation

With the conclusion of the removal Deal Hunter prepares a detailed reconciliation with complete inventory, bidding history, revenue, costs of sale and proceeds disbursement.
