Every item that we sell needs to be thoroughly researched, described, and cataloged. Our catalogers spend their days finding out all they can about a variety of items and then concisely surmising that information for our website and printed catalogs.
A crucial facet of our business is understanding the value of every item that comes through our doors. That’s where the specialists come in. These professionals are experts in their field and are charged with evaluating the value of an item and deciding what the appropriate venue for selling it would be. Our specialists also spend time out in the field trying to secure more consignments and forging relationships with potential buyers.
With thousands of transactions happening every year, Cowan’s relies on a team of professionals to make sure that we’re receiving payments and paying our consignors in a timely fashion.
No matter how valuable an item is it’s not going to sell unless buyers are aware it’s available. The marketing department makes sure that Cowan’s auctions and services are well known in the marketplace. They oversee the company’s website and social media pages, execute direct and email marketing efforts, and plan special events.
Cowan’s has its own in-house photography team to photograph all items for the online and printed catalogs. We also employ graphic designers to design and layout all of our catalogs, advertisements, brochures, and marketing materials in-house.
One of the things that separates Cowan’s from our competitors is our full-service shipping department. This team of professionals make sure that our items are carefully delivered to buyers around the globe in the same condition that they bought it.
