Consign With Us

Matthew Bullock Auction Gallery is always accepting individual items or collections for our future in-house or online only auctions.

We have several different ways to start the consignment process.  You can start by filling out our contact form and sending photos to or give us a call at 815-220-5005.

Our staff will evaluate your item or collections, and someone will reach out to you within 2-4 days. The more information and photographs you can provide the easier the process will be.  For individual items we will gladly provide preauction estimates. 

For larger consignments, collections, or estates an onsite evaluation may be needed.  If we feel like this is the right fit for our company Matthew or a representative will gladly set up a time to meet with you and go over your needs.

Our staff will accurately describe and market your items.  We use state of the art photography for all our online auctions.  Printed catalogs are distributed for our premier in-house auctions.

In house packing and shipping team.

Not only can we market and sell your items across the globe we can also ship almost anything to anywhere. One of the most valued components of Matthew Bullock Auction Gallery is the ability to ship your items with our in-house shipping team. Bidders value the ease in which they can have their items shipped which equals more money for you!

Competitive Commission Rates- We tailor our commission to fit you.  No one collection or item is the same so why should your commission be the same.  Many times, we use a sliding commission scale and charge you a lower commission for items of higher value. It is a win-win for you and us. Unlike many premier auction houses, there are no “hidden” seller’s fees for research, professional photography, cataloguing, insurance, storage, packing services, marketing or advertising.

Live In House Auctions

While the online bidding drives the price there is no substitute for a live in house auction.  Our premier auctions feature the best of both worlds-live in person bidding along with, bidding from 4 major online platforms, as wells as our own website bidding. We offer full auction previews the day prior to the auction as well as an auction day preview. Online and printed catalogs are available for all of our Premier in house auctions.

We use almost 10,000 sq ft as a gallery to showcase our live and online auctions.  Fully viewable showcases and a brightly lit showroom floor helps bring attention to your treasures. With over 10,000 sq ft dedicated to storage and cataloging, we have the space to showcase and store your collection.  Visit our about us page to view the interior of our gallery.
