About Champaign County Auctions & Estates

Champaign County Auctions & Estates specializes in providing live, simulcast and online auction services. With a completely transparent process, you can see your items, asking price, bids and all other details. We also set up and manage estate sales and live auctioneer services. However, our online auctions should have a significant advantage in the post coronavirus world.

Our goal is to always provide the best experience for our clients and do whatever is possible to help them get the best price for their items. By consistently offering high quality items, we have developed a network of thousands of buyers. This allows us to market your items to more bidders than other local auction companies.

Meet the owner - John Spinks

CCAE is owned and managed by John Spinks. After spending 10 years participating in auctions, John began working for an auction company. He learned how to set up auctions, stage items, manage promotions, present live auctions and conduct estate sales. John developed ideas for improving the process and incorporating simulcast auctions. Utilizing the best technology in the industry, he's been able to improve marketing techniques and get his clients better results.

By utilizing the CCAE online auction system, customers don't have to worry about items getting stolen or lost. Consignors don't have to pay hidden costs like marketing fees or cleaning expenses that come from live auctions. Another benefit is that all items sell. The end result is a seamless, simple process and a profitable sale.
