INFORMATION FOR THE AUCTION:
The trade show opens first thing in the morning and will remain open thru the auction sale. Whether you’re looking for team uniforms, shock absorbers, a complete engine, new chassis or just tips to improve your racing operation, you’ll find what you need at these trade shows. The admission to the trade show is included in your admission to the auction sale, racers seminars and the Riverside Park Speedway Reunion. There is AMPLE, FREE PARKING at the Riverfront Lot located at 1557 West Columbus Ave Springfield, MA 01103, so that will not be an issue. Arrive early and stay late!
HERE’S HOW TO SELL
With some thought, effort and organization, sellers (consignors) at racers auctions will make money. Your items will be numbered, displayed and sold and then you will receive a check for the sale amount, less the auctioneer’s commission. Items which you can no longer use may be just what the other racers need and they’ll be bidding against each other to get them! The auction does the advertising, attracts the crowd and the bidders.
All Auction Sales Terms and Conditions – NOTE: The Terms, Conditions and Auction Commission Schedule will be posted as soon as a Massachusetts licensed & bonded auction company is secured to run the sale.
These are consignment auctions which means your items are turned over to the auction for sale during the auction. These are not “flea markets,” “private sales,” or “swap meets.” EVERYTHING SELLS. If you are considering selling at these auctions, we suggest studying the “Auction Commission Schedule” thoroughly. As you can see, the highest commission percentages are charged on the smallest sales. It is to your advantage to group or pool small items together, when possible, so they are sold as a single “lot” number. The commissions are calculated individually on each lot sold, not the total sales of each consignor. Bring good stuff…not junk. Junk and wrecked parts are just a waste of time for everyone involved. NOTE: One Pallet Is NOT One Lot. We will NOT Sell used race tires, used sheet metal or items deemed inappropriate by the promoter. Do not bring them. Brand new tires, not mounted to a rim may be consigned. All items should be automotive or racing related.
Once all lots are full, no further consignments will be accepted. Any licensed vehicle or trailer consigned to the auction must have clear title and it must be on file in the cashier’s office. Small or loose parts should be put in an open box and the box labeled. Items zip tied to pegboard typically show off a nicer display of your part(s) and sell higher. Have items boxed or organized as you would like to have them sold. Precision parts and assemblies should be wrapped in clear plastic. Heavy items should be brought on rolling stands. Most small and medium size items to be auctioned will be placed on wooden pallets for display and movement within the auction building. Note that the auction staff may change the way you want to “group items” together or split them up.
Auction consignment items can be dropped off at the MassMutual Center Friday Dec 1st from 9 am to 7pm. Other arraignments can be made to receive auction items, call Don Jr @ 413-246-8452 or firstname.lastname@example.org - Thank you.
