Workman Auction is available for most kinds of auction sales including estates, benefits, closeouts, antiques, equipment and real estate.


We can generally provide free consultation to evaluate your auction items. We will also purchase out right , providing our clients the option of immediate payment.

Our auctions offer buyers and sellers an easy to view , nationally promoted web site complete with descriptions and a professional quality photo gallery. We also utilize printed media advertisements, posters/flyers, mailing lists and email blasts. We believe that photos, internet “key word” placement, product display and  packaging are an integral part of the auction business and strive to give each item proper presentation.


We offer full service property or estate liquidation. We consign or purchase single items. In order to sell very unique or specialty items we assist sellers in establishing the appropriate method of marketing. This may include coordinating with other auction houses,  internet sales, retail sales or a combination of several practices in order to optimize merchandize exposure.

We will often re package and sort sale items but do not offer cleaning.

We will assist in finding contractors to haul your items but we do not pick up or deliver.


We do not have regularly scheduled auction sales. We  conduct between 4  and 12 sales per year depending on the demand for our  services. We are available to conduct auctions any where in northwest  Montana but specialize in Eureka, Fortine, Trego, Rexford, Libby and Troy.


Our commission rates vary depending on the value of the item, or  in the case of an estate,  the value of the entire sale. Generally, the higher the sold price the lower the commission.
