Boshane Liquidators Estate sales Auctioneer Dave jacks prices up for bidders but down for estate receipts Niagara Falls New York
I have been to a few auctions for put on by this company and caught on quickly to their tactics. First off the set up is a joke. It takes forever to register and ten times longer to pay. Auctioneer Dave is short stumpy guy who you can't understand and thinks different and antique are automatically expensive. Don' t show any interest in an item prior otherwise he will bid up to the price you mention. How does he do this? Well while getting our numbers, it went from 24-31. We figured it out when those numbers got called during the auction and nobody had a paddle or card. He uses those numbers to get illegally bid up items. A friend of a friend who had used them said that on many items that should have sold they ended up going for almost nothing to those a late 20 number. This proves that if he does get stuck with an item, he just puts a cheap price like $5 for an impact gun that actually bid up to $40. Example: set of custom harley exhaust pipes I kept getting bid up by #30 but couldn't find the guy anywhere. I said f it and stopped bidding. My friend tells me a 4 sets sold for something crazy like $50 total and I found them on craigslist later that week for $200 a pair... What do you know it was the auctioneer selling them. He's obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed. At the same auction one of the bidders passed out and ended up passing away. The auctioneed did not even flinch while it was going on and one of the check in guys ended up tending to the customer. They placed him on a futon out of the sun while waiting for EMS and when he passed away on the futon his bodily fluids were released. Believe it or not they still sold the futon 20 minutes later with a huge urine spot still not dried. Truely inhumane and sketchy.
Also my friend informed me that they get paid based on total sales and a percentage from that. Under $10,000 in sales and they get %35 over by a buck and it's %30. She said it ended up being a few hundred short of the $10,000 ironically. She also said several items listed on the estates very detailed inventory were not present at the auction. This included several bedroom sets but somehow they wrere on the closeout for a ridiculously cheap price all brand new. I didn't even buy anything from them after the first couple motorcycle items were jacked up and glad I didn't. I did some homework after seeing website and knew the fat kid looked familiar. Google Niagara Falls, NY Boshane and top of the list is that kid with 6 ounces of Cocaine. No wonder my friend said the money didn't match but you would think he would work faster at least. Not a chance though. I went to their next auction just to see how big of a joke this one would be. Same story. Vehicles talked up like they were Nash Healey's, Harbor Freight tools "estimated" at twice retail value and still slowwwww I had to leave after the fat kid started talking up cars. It sounded like he read wikipedia a few too many times and mixed everything up. Probably doesn't even have a license. Take my word- Don't use them to sell you stuff, only half gets sold the other half ends up missing and don't buy from them, odds are your bidding against yourself or a "ghost bidder". Buyer beware!!!!
