ESTATE SALES VERSUS AUCTIONS
Understanding the type of professional services you need is detrimental to the success of your bottom line.
There are radical differences between an estate sale and an auction. First, an 'estate sale' is essentially a professional garage sale. In many cases, this type of sale is sufficient for your estate. Other times, choosing this option is vastly ineffective and will NOT maximize your financial outcome.
Our company has decades of experience and conducts both estate sales and estate auctions. However, in most cases, we strongly recommend and conduct estate auctions primarily because AUCTIONS WORK! Auctions are a competitive form of pricing and is the best assurance that you receive the best financial outcome in the most efficient manner.

AMI-ROWE Jukebox Museum
American Eagle Auction & Appraisal Company was chosen by the historic AMI-ROWE to sell their historic jukebox museum at The Super Auction.
The iconic music machine maker who manufactured jukeboxes for 100 years in Grand Rapids, Michigan closed down their factory and relocated. For nearly a decade, they placed 88 of their jukeboxes that dated all the way back to 1936 into storage.
The auction was conducted in Ann Arbor, Michigan. An aggressive advertising and marketing campaign produced eager bidders from all around the world and as far as Australia and Austria.
Needless to say, the auction was an end of an era and exceeded AMI's expecations.
