We can help! While we don’t sell anything directly on our website, we can help you find the right auction house for your item. EVI is connected with auction houses throughout the globe – big and small. We can help you connect with the right auction house that will help you realize the most for your item.
We can also advise you whether auction is even the right choice for you! Your item might realize more money on Ebay or selling through Craigslist or Gumtree. Rest assured, we will help you get more money in your pocket.
Our appraisers have experience working for auction houses of all sizes. Bigger isn’t always better. While many appraisal sites claim their appraisers have worked exclusively for Sotheby’s or Christie’s, we are proud to say that our appraisers have also worked for auction houses that serve the average Joe.
Our appraisers are experts in their field and have the credentials to back up their estimates. Most of our appraisers have a Masters degree. All have worked for auction houses or are traders in their area of expertise. Each has been personally vetted by our Founder and CEO.

Yes, it’s true that auction houses will provide appraisals for free. Unfortunately, these appraisals can sometimes take weeks to receive. Keep in mind, if your item is deemed “low value” by an auction house, you might not receive a reply for weeks, or your reply might simply consist of “This item is below our minimum consignment value…” You might not receive a specific dollar amount estimate, not to mention, little to no information about your item.

We will always provide you as much information as possible about your item, whether it is worth $1 or $1 Million!
