We Are More Than Auctioneers — We Are Your Partners
We believe the key to great services is knowing your customers. Compared to a larger company, we are able to provide more personalized, tailored services. With big-box auction houses, you may never meet the head auctioneer. With Wade’s Auction Service, you will work with our entire team, and each one of us will take the time to get to know you, your situation, and needs.
We work around your schedule to ensure your goals are met. We pride ourselves on great communication and collaboration. Our work is about helping you sell your personal property or liquidate an estate — and helping you get the most profit and reward for your experience.
Expertly Guiding You Through the Auction Process
Working with an auction company is about more than the actual auction day. We are committed to serving our customers in every way possible. From providing complete appraisal services and logging every item by description to packing items to be sold and transporting them to the selling site, we work hard to make the process as easy as possible for the seller.
All items sold are documented in our computer system and logged on printout at the end of the auction. Each purchaser receives a furnished receipt for their items, listing out the final selling price. All items are sold “AS IS” and will be advertised as such.

As your auctioneer, we will make an educated determination of what money needs to be spent and where, and cover this with you during our initial consultation. It is our goal to tap the market we need, instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars advertising in ways which may not be beneficial.
Knowing the marketplace and current value of the items we sell is an important part of our work. We know how to reach appropriate buyers and create awareness, which leads to successful sales. To advertise each auction we use two websites and local newspapers. We work with each customer to determine the best and most cost-effective advertising plan for their auction.
Providing Comprehensive Services & Solutions
Deciding how to divide up an estate can be a stressful and emotional experience for a family. By choosing Wade’s Auction Service for your estate auction, you can relieve some of that stress and rest easy knowing we are doing all we can to make sure you and your family get the most for the estate. Hiring a professional auction service will ensure that the items in the estate are appropriately appraised, priced, and sold in an efficient manner. Unlike a garage sale or in-house estate sale, liquidating your estate through auction can yield a higher profit and lead to more items being sold outright. We provide estate auction services for both whole and partial estates.
In a consignment auction, we will sell your items and after the sale, we collect a percentage of the sale price and you are paid the balance. Under this system, we do not own your items, but instead create an agreement with you to sell each item. It is our goal to sell your property at the best possible price and make the auction process as smooth as possible. This type of auction is appropriate for individuals, businesses, or estates.
Whether you are closing up shop or are looking to turn surplus equipment and assets into cash, we can help. Our business liquidation auctions are the perfect way to sell basic office equipment and supplies and help you replenish the coffers of your business or give you one last financial bump. Attending a business liquidation auction is also a great way for startups to obtain the equipment needed to get their business up and running.
A benefit auction is an auction conducted for a cause. Our benefit auctions are typically events used to raise money for a particular charity or organization. Our founder has passionately been serving his community as a professional benefit and fundraising auctioneer since 1995. He is known for his witty and down-to-earth style that engages the audience, inspiring them to bid beyond their budget. Tom has performed hundreds of auctions with nonprofits, schools, cancer patients, church groups, and organizations, raising millions of dollars to make a difference in the lives of others.
Before you decide to liquidate your estate or sell personal property, it is important to know its worth. Knowing the value of your items will help you recognize when a bid in an auction is reasonable. Our team understands your goals and provides honest feedback on the quality of your property. We provide appraisal services related to estate liquidation, divorce proceedings, insurance claims, personal property sales, and more.
Wade’s is also a licensed Federal Firearms agent licensed in the state of West Virginia. We are able to sell firearms and handguns to potential clients in or out of state.
