Looking for large lots for auction. I know of eBay already ;)
I sell just about anything i can get my hands on for a good price so i am not specific on what the site auctions are.

Thanks for any help

Hi dx, I notice you are looking at liquidation auction style sites, however have you considered buying from actual liquidators themselves?

Most products auctioned through those sites that you are inquiring about are actually sold by dealers, and most of them get their stock from actual liquidators.

Yes, you can definitely find bargains on these types of sites, but the key advantages of dealing direct from the source is that you will be getting a set price, and a constant supply from the one single reliable source.

Just a thought, but I would suggest checking out liquidators themselves.

Yes i used to buy from liquidators, i tend to get stuff much cheaper through auction, i bought 1000 pairs of sunglasses for .20 each shipped, sold them all at 4.00 each. so i spent 200.00 and sold them around 3K, minus theft and ones that don't sell. So if i can find a liquidator that can match the prices i get i would be happy to, i buy makeup for .10cents per piece most liquidators sell between .50 and 1.50

I try to get the most bang for my buck. I am not trying to stick with one product unless i can get at a nice deal, i go with the flow, 1 week i am selling games, next i am selling HBA to Cars etc... I do like Via trading in Lynwood cause they do live auctions and you can get some pallets of stuff real cheap. But my auction strategy works fine so far, i bid the minimum on all the stuff i am interested in, and 1 or 2 lots will always tend to slip through. i do the same on ebay, i place around 2000+ bids for .99cents and i will win 1-30 it sounds like a lot of work, but not really, it should only take about 1 hour to place those bids, i do the same on liquidation i bid 100.00 on 50+ items and some slip through.
but my advice is make sure you can back your bids (in case you win them all ), So if you have any suggestions on places that have great prices that would be great
I like to Buy in pallet to truckloads

Sounds like you have it all pretty much worked out to a fine art : )

Via are the only ones that I know of that do hold the live auctions, and that is a great way to buy pallets from them for those that are close enough to attend. Short of that, truckloads are always going to give you the best return on your outlay, but I'm not telling you anything you don't already know lol

Only thing I would say is that a little negotiating never hurts with liquidators. If they know you are a serious buyer, you can usually get them to the table on a much better deal than they are prepared to make public a lot of the time.

: )

Hi dx;

Where do you sell the products you buy from liquidation sites? About a month ago, I bought 50 watches but I was not able to sell any of them yet.

Where are you trying to sell them impozone, and how are you trying to sell them, small lots or individually?

Post a link to any of them if you currently have any listed so we can generate some feedback for you.
