About Moxie Auctions LLC
Moxie Auctions provides live onsite auctions of the contents of your home or business. We offer the skills and manpower to catalog, advertise, sell and settle your personal property by the auction method. We’ll handle everything from the initial assessment through bidder registration and checkout, even shipping if needed.
Best of all, we come to you — the auction will take place where the assets are located, or at a place near you.
