Even though we all need furniture that doesn’t mean that every furniture store will be a success. Recently it was announced that the Richmond based Roomstore Inc. was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. As part of that filing they are planning to sell of the bulk of their assets at an upcoming auction. By assets they mean all of their furniture stock. This could be a great opportunity to score some amazing new furniture at really terrific prices. If you’ve never participated in an auction before you’re in for a fun afternoon.
Although the format might change, the rules are basically the same. In an auction, the item goes to the highest bidder. For an asset furniture auction, you’ll probably have a chance to go through the various lots of items to see what you might want to bid on. They could choose to sell off individual pieces or entire rooms. Imagine getting a brand new living room for a fraction of the cost. The best approach to take at an auction is to have a price in mind that you’re willing to pay for an item then stick with that price. Don’t get caught up in a bidding war. If you only have a thousand dollars to spend then that’s what you need to bid.
Take note that most auction houses also charge a fee for their services. This means if you bid on an item and win it for $500 you might have to pay an additional $50 for the auction commission. The rule of the furniture auction should be made clear before the first item goes up for sale. At an auction like this you might also need to be prepared to take away your purchases or arrange for delivery. This would be another cost you would have to factor in to your budget.
Even if you don’t want to try to win furniture in an auction, you still might be looking around your living room or bedroom thinking, “It’s time for an upgrade.” With a little effort, you might be able to find furniture manufacturers based in America which not only offer decent bargains but also provide free shipping.
