Auctions America reports record sales for 2013


AUBURN — Auctions America said Wednesday that it achieved record numbers through its sales in 2013.

The auction company is based at Auburn Auction Park, south of Auburn.

The company reported $73.7 million in auction sales and a sales rate of 77 percent. It said it sold more than 2,973 vehicles and assorted memorabilia in six separate auction events across the United States.

The sales attracted bidders from 26 nations and all 50 states, the company said, and at its Fort Lauderdale sale, 42 percent of bidders were first-time clients.

The company said its largest sale, Auburn Fall, ranks as its most successful event to date with more than $28 million in sales. Auburn Fall’s attendance of more than 70,000 people at Auburn Auction Park surpassed the 2012 attendance figure by nearly 40 percent.

Auctions America conducted its first sale in the Los Angeles market this year. The NBC Sports Network carried live coverage of the California and Auburn Fall sales to a potential audience of more than 80 million homes. Auctions America said details on television coverage for its 2014 events will be announced soon.

The company’s first all-memorabilia sale will take place Jan. 24 and 25 at Auburn Auction Park, with online bidding for approximately 800 lots of memorabilia without reserve. The sale features petroleum and automobile memoribilia, signs, soda fountain and country store nostalgia and an extensive model railroad offering with new-old-stock collectibles.
