INVISIBLE BIDERS by
LET DOWN -
We have found that every week some number's pop up during the bidding process! Yes numbers that are bidders who are not present or chose not to attend and bid with the rest of us! As stated in another review, there are so many dealers at Brunks and now even some of them no longer have to attend to bid, such as #28 or #51 to name a couple! maybe we missed the sign somewhere there telling us all we could make an on-line bid or just stay home-look at the pictures-call the office and bid! Both those #'s are dealers! I wonder if the rest of us were all dealers or favorites we could bid from home also! Nay, probably not since its not allowed! So if the auctioneer has to look at a list of bids from a sheet of paper before starting, don't look around to see who your bidding against-There not there! Then you might want to ask for a open account to charge and pay for whatever you wish, right Jimmy Hoarder and others! Or maybe just attend another auction where even you have a fair chance to win a item!

Yes indeed Tony V, There should be two auctions at Brunks! One for dealers such as yourself and the other for the public as a public auction should be! Dealers should be buying wholesale! Brunks is a long ways from a public auction!
Dear Let Down... by
There's plenty of stuff for everybody...so you got eucured out of something you wanted by a dealer...that's the nature of auctions. If you're there recreationally then appreciate tht some people are their to make a living. Quite telling that one even wants to begrudge other people we share the planet with of importing nice things to make their own lives better. Lol. Golly....all because you missed out on a chatchki!!! My only request for the Brunks would be to have 2 weekly auctions. One for the household items of lower value and the other for the finer stuff. That way they will get the target crowd for each demo and better focus and less rush during the auction itself.
NO PUBLIC AUCTION by
LET DOWN -
This auction has turned into a distribution house for dealers and non documented Mexicans (who will run off with the stuff you purchased). Usually 4-5 of them there buying everything and reselling it in Mexico-(DEALERS right). And most the staff knows them by name! Then you have the local Dealers who are bidding against each other and driving the cost of the items way past what its worth! They have there little rented shops all over the valley and of coarse they have, Prescott, Flag, el Paso, Tucson, and other towns all driving up there prices and at the same time shutting out the public from winning any bids! If you attend auctions for something to do, then you will find Brunks very entertaining as the boys all cater to and call the dealers by name! We have going there for a few years now and they don't have a clue what our names are, nor do they care! The dealers keep them operating and the public gets to buy what the dealers leave behind! A year or so ago, I could have left a lot better rating!
why so much time on boxes by
why so much time on boxes -
i usually have to go to work on sunday afternoons and i wish just once in a while they could start the auction in the main building where the decent furniture is sold. do you ever think about selling the box lots 5 or so at a time?
great service by
We sold our house and didn't have time to sell our furniture on our own. Eric was recommended and when phoned, they were fast to come over and appraise our furniture. Once our decision was made, Eric and his boys come over and in no time at all moved our furniture without any damage or garbage left behind. I will highly recommend them.Thanks Eric.
More Than Happy by
Great Experience - We consigned a large amount of excess furniture and small items after moving down here from Michigan. We showed them pictures of what we had and they made a pickup. Some of the furniture if sold in Michigan would have brought more we think but the decorating and demand for some items is different down here.We are more than happy.The prices they got for the small items really surprised us. We got way more after all was said and done than we ever figured we would.
They are honest and straight forward by
I read some of the comments. They "don't want" to sell your stuff, they "start late", etc. They are a family run company that has been doing business for years. They know what sells, and if they tell you it won't, trust them. I am a dealer who has attended their auctions for 20 years, and they are the some of the most honest people in the business that I have dealt with. You have no worries either buying or selling with them. Selling is where most people have issues - but if you consign there are always a lot of people looking at the items and are there to buy. There is nothing that gets "by" anyone - it will bring what the value is. If it is not enough in your mind, that's because it wasn't worth what you thought. Use them. They are good.
bad experience by
thought it would be simple to cosign a few pieces of antique furniture to an upcoming auction. wow was I wrong. contacted brunks and suggested they could find some examples of what I wanted to consign on craigslist--was told she did not have time to do this( her words) and would have to send pics separately. she even said I might consider this rude but she was too busy( would take about 3 min to view craigslist items) I did consider it rude. then sent a few pics as instructed and got email saying not interested. never had such uncaring experience anfd Have used auctions in other states several times. I guess they can be successful without any customer consideration
Great way to spend a lazy hazy Sunday by
Great auction. No $100.00 number fee. Just $20.00 to get a number. If you don't spend it you get it back when you leave. Nice people running it makes it fun to go. They always help you load or unload at the auction. In fact they usually do it for you. Good food at the snack counter. Alway a fun place to go with good choice of items to bid on.Bob Rosendahl
