Estate Liquidation and Antique Buyers NYC

Unmatched Convenience
Opting for Showplace translates to a hassle-free process from start to finish. Unlike auction or online sales, we manage everything: from assessment and valuation to purchasing, packing, and pickup. This comprehensive approach is especially advantageous for large collections or when time constraints are pressing, eliminating the complexities and time demands typically involved in personal selling efforts.

Guaranteed Sale Price
Selling to us means receiving a predetermined, fair price for your items—be it a complete estate, a collection, or individual pieces. This guarantee removes the uncertainties associated with auctions or the waiting game of online sales, ensuring you get paid promptly upon item collection. Our approach contrasts sharply with auction houses, where high estimates come with no sales guarantees, often leading to disappointment and unforeseen delays.

Zero Fees
At Showplace, transparency and fairness are paramount. We don’t charge any fees to our clients, setting us apart from auction houses and online platforms that often deduct significant percentages from the sale price. Our model ensures that you know exactly what you’ll receive without any hidden costs or deductions.

Discretion and Privacy
Understanding the personal significance and sensitive nature of selling private belongings, we offer a discreet and confidential service. Our process respects your privacy, ensuring a smooth and respectful transaction.

Capability to Purchase Extensively
Our ability to purchase a wide variety of items, regardless of value, sets us apart. Unlike typical auction houses that might only accept select pieces, Showplace is equipped to buy a broader spectrum of goods, thanks to our extensive infrastructure, including a 40,000 square foot gallery in Manhattan and a 26,000 square foot warehouse in Astoria. This capability allows us to offer solutions for entire estates, not just select items.

Removal and Cleanup Services
Beyond just purchasing, Showplace offers additional services like removal and cleanup, further easing the transition process. Our team is prepared to manage the logistics of clearing out spaces, ensuring a tidy and orderly conclusion to your selling experience.

Competitive Pricing
With over 30 years in the business and a robust infrastructure to support our operations, Showplace is positioned to offer competitive pricing. Our experience and resources enable us to provide strong offers, making us a preferred choice over competitors.

Working with Showplace Fine Art & Estate Buyers is not just about selling items; it’s about experiencing a seamless, efficient, and beneficial process that respects your time, privacy, and financial expectations. Our comprehensive approach, coupled with a legacy of trust and excellence, makes us the go-to solution for anyone looking to sell estate items, art, antiques, and more in New York City. Let us make your selling experience as straightforward and rewarding as possible.

Highly recommend Showplace Fine Art & Estate Buyers! They are consummate professionals. They know their business, they are knowledgeable, and treat their customers with courtesy. Working with Andrea and her team was a great experience. She reviewed and evaluated all of the pieces, and offered a very fair price. I was very impressed and would definitely call on them again.

Showplace was wonderful to work with - they responded to my requests quickly and made what could have been a difficult process very easy and successful. Andrea and her crew arrived on time and were a pleasure to work with. She gave informed assessments of all items and offered a fair price on the spot. There were many items with some of them being very heavy and her crew expertly moved and loaded them into the truck. I was extremely happy with the entire process. I highly recommend Showplace Fine Art & Estate Buyers for both your selling and buying needs.

These folks bought from a personal collection of paintings. The artists were somewhat obscure but Shawn and the rest of the team did a great job coming up with the best offer possible. Great place with people who are easy to work with (they pick up the art!), and fair dealing. I recommend you show them your art if you are looking for a buyer.

We had an excellent experience with Showplace. They came highly recommended by an appraiser who was helping us evaluate the artwork of my brother’s estate. Showplace provided a quick turnaround in providing a reasonable price for the entire collection. They efficiently and professionally packed up all the artwork and wrote us a check in one day.

First, the showroom in Manhattan is stunning and anyone looking for a unique piece or two to glamorize their home should make this a stop. But, more importantly, we have worked professionally with Showplace many times, for years, and can heartily recommend them. We help clients downsize and we are always looking for places interested in buying. The Showplace staff is responsive, professional, and friendly.

We had a fairly large storage unit with over 1000 pieces art and related items from an estate that needed to be picked up. The men who did the moving were AWESOME! They were organized, efficient and very speedy, yet careful. They cleaned up so well, taking everything (trash included) that the unit is already "broom clean". I was totally impressed. The 2 members of the staff of Showplace I dealt with on the phone, Shawn and Andrea, were great, too! -- They were friendly made things so much easier than I was expecting.

I was left alone in an UES apartment. How was I going to downsize to a one BR assisted living apartment? A moving management professional suggested I contact Andrea Baker at Showplace. Glad I did. Andrea acted quickly, but with no high pressure tactics. She came and took pictures, made a lot of notes, and got back to me the next day with an offer. The items I wanted to get rid of ranged from ordinary household stuff, furniture, fine china and bric-a-brac, art by Joan Miro, sculpture by Silas Seandel and a large collection of Steuben animals. Her offer was acceptable, and a move out date was set. Everything that was being taken away was marked with a color coded label. Andrea arrived on time on moving day with her assistant and moving team. Everything that was going was packed and loaded on to their truck. The whole process left me with a good feeling even though most of my possessions were going bye bye. Another nice thing. I had a sculpture that I wanted to ship to my daughter in Idaho. Andrea Took it and arranged to have it packed and shipped for me with no extra handling charge or commission.
