Honesty, Integrity, Record Setting Prices

Heckler is committed to the success of each item consigned to us. With over 45 years in the industry, our experience, reach, and reputation allow us to consistently deliver exceptional results for our clients. Consignors benefit from a variety of auction avenues that extend our commitment to showcase each individual lot.

  1. Public Absentee Auction – For over 20 years, Heckler has leveraged this format to deliver record breaking results. Public absentee auction allows potential bidders the time to respond to incremental auction activity while maintaining the competitive auction atmosphere for each item.
  2. Live Public Auction – The excitement of a live auction cannot be duplicated. Heckler has conducted live auctions for over 25 years.
  3. Invitation Only Live Auction – This format connects our consignors directly with the right clients. Certain categories of antique glass respond exceedingly well to this auction format. Based on our exclusive list of motivated buyers, this auction format can deliver exceptional results for consignors.
  4. Private Sale – A quick and efficient option to de-accession item(s) for a fair market value.
