Auction Specialists

 But what about the physical assets?

Liquidation of personal assets such as real estate, furniture, collectibles, works of art, vehicles, equipment, and other personal effects are not generally handled directly by appointed executors, that’s where we come in.

 Our company is a full service auction company.

We can make settling your estate a much easier process.

 Besides auctioneering services we provide:

- Complete appraisal services

- Complete set-up and cleanup services.

As CERTIFIED ESTATE SPECIALISTS our extensive knowledge and resources is an invaluable asset in marketing and sale of personal property through auction or other means. Vander Kolk Auction & Appraisal Co. will assess your particular situation and make our recommendation as to which direction should be taken.
