Finding Antique Furniture at a Good Price

Antique furniture from MaxSold Online auction

Most people hold onto valuable things, like antique furniture. When craftsmanship has been replaced by poorly manufactured goods, you want to hold onto unique treasures. There are a few different types of markets to find amazing antiques at affordable prices.

Why Should You Buy Antiques From Online Auctions?

Antique dealers look to get a premium, regardless of appraisal. Generally, antique stores have to pay to get product, employ people, and make commercial rents. Therefore, the buyer is subjected to getting price gouged. So how can you avoid the high extra costs,  and actually get joy out of finding fabulous antiques? The best way to find antiques affordably without going thrift store to thrift store is to stay local and bid on antique furniture online.

In our auctions a potential buyer can not only bid on everyday items, but there are also the antique, unique and vintage treasures that were meant to last generations. 

Antiques found in MaxSold auctions arrive for a variety of reasons, including downsizing sales and moving. You may find a mid-century dresser for sale through an estate, a vintage vanity for sale from a downsize, and even a vintage school desk for sale that was crowding someone’s garage.

Tips for Finding on Antique Furniture at a Good Price

  1. Avoid fancy antique furniture stores, particularly in high-end neighborhoods where rent is high
  2. Bid locally, where your competitors are in an equal playing field
  3. Avoid shipping costs and expensive service charges

In Summary

Let’s check out what our buyers are bidding on MaxSold!

 

Finding local purchases eliminates shipping and delivery costs. Especially with rare antiques, whether furniture or artwork, packaging alone can cost as much as you paid for the piece. That’s before shipping costs. Larger items will have to be delivered freight, which is a further complication.

We limit our auctions to 30-180 miles so that you can pick up your item and handle with as much care as you want. There is no service charge to you to register to bid on MaxSold.
