CatBecca Online Auction House Information:

Welcome to CatBecca

CatBecca is a licensed auction house that purchases estates and important collections for our weekend auctions held live and online. Other than Sothebys, we process more lots and authenticate more pieces than any other auction house in the USA. It is a proven fact that cataloged auctions obtain the highest dollar especially when broadcast to millions in the US and overseas. We make this possible for our customers. We can send a mobile uplink truck and team to a customer's location to catalog their estate / collection for a catalog auction.

On eBay we are a platinum power seller receiving 1500 feedbacks each month with 99.2% positive. Our website receives over 3 million hits per month, and can process in excess of 1000 lots per week. In addition, we have the world's only high-speed uplink truck for large estates and can support remote auctions.

Join the Hottest New Trend
We spent some time studying this new business trend regarding drop off centers which started in California and is now spreading nationwide. Up until this point, the drop off centers have centered around eBay, not eBayLive & Live auctions. Most seem to focus on household items and electronics. We have decided to take this a bit further.

Our business model is more focused exclusively on estate antiques, glass, pottery and collectibles. Since we manage over 1000 lots per week and hold LIVE weekly auctions with 90% being shipped out, we have the systems in place to operate at high speed, with efficiency.

Open Your Own Drop off Center

Our goal is to set up hundreds of well managed LIVE Drop off Centers worldwide where busy estate owners can easily drop off estate pieces for instant cash or for listing at a live auction. If those same centers also hold REMOTE LINKED auctions to our LIVE auction it brings potentially thousands of new bidders to our auctions. With this growth, potentially prices will increase with more bidders. With better prices, more estates will be attracted to our auctions benefiting CatBecca and you, as the owner.
