Step 1. Evaluation
AUCTIONWAVES.COM will interview you regarding the specifics of your project, prepare a schedule and tailored sales solution.
Step 2. Engagement
AUCTIONWAVES.COM will forward a letter of agreement outlining the details of sale.
Step 3. Identification
AUCTIONWAVES.COM will provide staff and/or materials necessary to prepare a detailed inventory. The identification process can be completed by either AuctionWaves staff or the seller. Identification consists of applying a bar code label, preparing a detailed description with dimensions, manufacturer and model number, taking a digital photo and assigning a location code. The identification process normally takes between 2-8 hours to complete.
Step 4. Web Posting
AUCTIONWAVES.COM prepares the event details and inventory for posting to the web. Each event is featured by closing sale date and has unique terms of sale, inspection, closing and removal times. Most events are posted with 1-3 days of the identification process.
Step 5. Online Preview & Bidding
Once the event and assets are posted to the web, the inventory is fully searchable for preview and immediate bidding. While the bidding phase can be as short as a few hours, we recommend a preview/bidding period of 6-14 days. Projects which are prepared well in advance of the closing date can substantially benefit from prolonged exposure, marketing time and extended bidding.
Step 6. Marketing
Once an event is posted the marketing plan begins utilizing a combination of direct mail, E-MAIL, newspaper, online newsletters, telemarketing, web promotion, online advertising and press releases.
Step 7. Inspection/Open House
While not strictly required, most events include a one day presale inspection or open house, staffed either by AUCTIONWAVES.COM or the seller. The inspection is usually conducted one or two days prior to the event closing.
Step 8. Event Closing
The event will begin closing online starting with the first catalog item and continues 3-10 items per minute until all items have been sold. AUCTIONWAVES.COM utilizes a “dynamic” closing system which automatically extends the closing time on any item which is being actively bid upon. Most events conclude within 2-6 hours.
Step 9. Transaction Processing
At the conclusion of the sale, all bidder transaction are automatically processed for payment and delivery of e-mail delivery of sales receipts.
Step 10. Removal
The removal is supervised by the AUCTIONWAVES.COM staff and come prepared to disconnect and remove assets. Most purchasers use professional movers. Removals can be scheduled during the day, evenings and/or weekends. AUCTIONWAVES.COM can coordinate and supervise all aspects of the removal with building management. Most removals require 1 or 2 days.
Step 11. Reconciliation
With the conclusion of the removal AUCTIONWAVES.COM prepares a detailed reconciliation with complete inventory, bidding history, revenue, costs of sale and proceeds disbursement.
All information is posted online and can be viewed 24/7. Inventory items are added, edited, removed, sold, delivered and reconciled based upon the lot number and detailed item description.
Buyers and sellers watch the entire sales process unfold online. In addition to the photo catalog, the sales inventory shows the current number of bids on each item, the bid history, the current bidder number, current bid and next required bid in real time.
At the conclusion of the sale, the sales results are left online for a period of 6-12 months.
