Get to know John Prigge

Prigge Auctions is a full service auction, appraisal and cleanout company serving Chicagoland since 1990. We offer our services for home and business owners along with collectors who have the need to sell their collectibles. We also conduct fundraising auctions for organizations who know auctions can raise alot of money on one day!Prigge Auctions is also one of the few Illinois auction companies that does not offer to buy items from a potential client outright as that is a gross conflict of interest. What we find we sell for you.Where we excel is performing whole house cleanouts to assist those leaving their longtime residence and finding items to sell at auction.  Realtors, estate executors and professionals call on us to tackle the tough job of getting a home or business "broom clean" for a smooth closing. We have many success stories from Realtors referring homes to us they hesitated in listing because of the mass accumulation left behind. Not only do we get properties down to floors and walls, BUT items of value are sold at auction so they can subsidize the cleanout cost!Our auction services far outweigh the options of estate sales, tag sales, garage sales, selling to a dealer, etc. One of our mottos says it all, "Never Sell To One What We Can Offer To Thousands".
