In my 22 years of selling pre-owned store equipment I have had many phone calls from retailers asking “what do I need to do when a business is closing”.  For those that are fortunate enough to not to be forced into the bankruptcy process an organized tag sale or an on-line and/or on site auction sale can be the best way to get the best return on investment.

When you make the decision to close down your business, you need to pick out a liquidation or auction company.  When you are looking for a company to help you go into liquidation you want to find a company that has been in the industry for a number of years.  There is no substitute for experience when it comes to properly shutting down your store.  Whether you are looking to have a going out of business sale, a retirement closing sale, or are simply looking to close, remodel or relocate your store you want to find a company with experience.  There are a number of “pop up” companies that claim to “have experience” at helping businesses close down.  When, in fact, they simply have not been in business long enough to have the infrastructure to help you properly manage your store closing liquidation project.

At SAM Auctions we have been in business over 30 years.  Our management team has over 80 years of experience of managing full store closing sales, fixture auctions and fixture liquidation sales!  SAM Auctions can help your company liquidate your merchandise and also sell your FF&E.

We would be happy to set up a ZOOM call with you to discuss your potential needs.  We would like to get to know you and how we could best support your process.  Whether you are looking for someone to sell excess equipment to, partner with you to close your store, or help with service projects such as remodel store cleanouts let SAM auction be one of the companies that are on your bidder list!  You will not regret that decision.
