Overall, I thought it was great and I appreciate all your efforts.
It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you next year!”

Silent Auction Consultation:
Advantages of Partnering with a Professional Auction Company for your Silent Auctions 

Many non profits have turned to hosting silent auctions as a great way to quickly generate funds for their organizations. Not only can silent auctions generate money, they provide an excellent platform for increasing engagement and awareness about your organization’s cause.

In order to have a successful auction you will either need a lot of items for sale, or you need a lot of attendees bidding aggressively on a select number of high-end items. The combination of sourcing items, marketing the event and the actual running of the silent auction can be an overwhelming task for any organization. That’s where our experienced team of professional auction professionals at Auctioneers Fundraising Group International (AFGI) can help. We’ve been in the auction business for over 40 years and we have a track record of success running silent auctions for a wide range of Toronto non profits.

Many silent auctions fall victim to simply not having enough items that catch attendee’s attention. Not only are there not enough items that generate interest, but oftentimes auction items are not organized properly.

Our silent auction consultation provides a unique service that many Toronto organizations have benefited from. We can provide items for your auction, allowing your attendees the ability to bid on a wide variety of inventory. Our buying power and auction experience allow us the ability to stock your silent auction with a great selection of items that stir up excitement at any auction. Your non profit will earn a percentage on the final bid price on any item we supply and sell at your auction. This, in combination with making 100% of the proceeds from items your group supplies makes an AFGI hosted silent auction a profit-generating event.

We know how to organize your auction items and group them together to get maximum attention and bids. All bidding areas will look amazing, the layout of the auction will make foot traffic move along effortlessly and will make all items stand out.

In addition to having lots of great items on the auction block, your organization will need to be extremely organized. The more you plan, the more money your silent auction will generate. We walk your organization through the entire silent auction planning process. Every silent auction is unique and we work with you and your team to ensure that all of your needs are addressed right from the beginning. It happens all of the time, auctions fall victim to not having not enough room, too few tables, poor lighting, lack of bidding sheets and pens and various other things can quickly kill the momentum of any silent auction. Our team will not only ensure that every detail is accounted for, we’ll bring a touch of class to your fundraising auction that only 40 years of experience can provide.

We live in a cashless world and many silent auctions are not prepared. Assuming that your attendees will be carrying enough cash to purchase items can be a costly mistake. We provide electronic payment devices that will accept a wide variety of payment methods including major credit cards and Interac. People are more likely to spend more when there are able to use their credit card or bank account. Also, this will limit the amount of transactions being paid with cheques.

At AFGI we are a family of auctioneers and we bring this experience to every silent auction we work on. Each of our auctioneers attended the world-renown ‘World Wide College of Auctioneering’. Excitement, passion, experience and professionalism are a given at every one of our auctions.

We’re proud of the reputation we’ve earned running profitable silent auctions. Our goal is to provide no cost and no risk silent auctions with absolutely no hidden fees. At AFGI we want to be your silent auction partner, we provide unlimited event consultation and advice from day one and will take care of everything from the auction’s full set-up to the eventual tear down. We take care of all details so you and your team don’t have to.

Our team is here to help take your silent auction to the next level. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help your organization’s fundraising.
