A Trusted, Expert, Full-Service Company


Pete’s Auction Service, LLC provides an array of estate management and asset conversion capabilities to clients throughout the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area:

Live, In-House Auctions

With a large, climate-controlled auction house conveniently located between Charlottesville and Culpeper, Virginia, Pete’s Auction Services operates one of the most well-respected and efficient live auction facilities in the region.  Holding a minimum of two in-house auctions per month, Pete’s has a loyal and growing customer base.  Especially attractive to buyers is Pete’s policy of charging no buyer’s premium which translates into higher realized prices for consignors and happier buyers! 

Online Auctions

Several times per year, Pete’s Auction Service holds detailed catalog auctions that are broadcast live for internet as well as in-house bidding.  These sales featuring high-end antiques and hard-to-find collectibles of all kinds attract national and international bidders.  Publicity for these sales is extensive. Absentee pre-sale and phone bids for any auction are always welcome.

Estate Sales and Clean-outs

Pete’s expert staff also can organize and hold “tag” or estate sales at a homeowner’s premises.   The team researches, prices, tags, advertises and operates all aspects of the sale, including after-sale clean up and if necessary, transport of unsold items to auction, desired charity, or other location.

On-Site Auctions

On occasion, the size or complexity of an estate requires an auction to be held on-site. Pete’s Auction service can evaluate the needs and requirements for such events and handle all preparations and management of the on-site sale.

Appraisal Services

Whether it’s a tractor or a shotgun, a Ming Dynasty vase or a Mickey Mouse watch, Pete’s experienced professionals can offer an honest, thorough evaluation of all assets as well as advice and direction on how best to market and sell them.

Grocery & Household Products Sales

One of Pete’s Auction Services most popular activities is the periodic Food & Grocery auctions.   Filet mignon and cases of cleaning supplies, frozen pizzas and Egyptian cotton sheet sets…. You never know what may turn up at these sales --- all for way below wholesale prices.

Benefit  Auctions

A staunch supporter of charitable local activities, Pete’s Auction Service also frequently participates in an array of nonprofit events.
