When my dad died, I contacted all the local [to his area] auction companies and they came and looked....said there wasn't enough stuff-they wouldn't waste their time. So, I bought a bull horn, bought ads in the local papers giving time and sate of the upcoming auction and took 2 weeks vacation from work..drove the 1750 miles in the Rocky Goodtime Van [TM] and cleaned and organised all the tools, early ford cars and parts and made 2 huge metal scrap piles. My brothers and sister helped me the last weekend and we had the auction. I manned the bull horn and anything that didn't sell went into the scrap piles which I auctioned last...All 4 of us walked away with about 2500 bucks ... The only negative thing was none of the cars [after we split up the good stuff between us] sold....went for scrap even tho I'd gotten titles for everything on the propitty. Do it yourself!
