About Auction It Today

We're our client's preferred eBay drop-off store and consignment service. We make it easy for our customers to realize the Internet's potential as a sales tool! With Auction it TODAY and eBay, they receive maximum exposure for a reasonable cost. Auction it TODAY has the reputation and experience necessary to get items noticed by millions of potential buyers worldwide. We take pride in our attention to detail and excellent customer service.

Values & History

Our sister company, Stanley Sheppard Company, has been importing machine tools and accessories for over sixty-five years. Needless to say, over that time, many slow-moving inventory items became a dead stock and began to collect dust. When eBay started, it allowed us to sell our dead stock to the world market, which we did very successfully.

Since we'd acquired such great experience and knowledge selling our products online, we decided to offer our services to others. So, in 2006, we established a new company, Auction it TODAY of Connecticut, to help individuals and businesses sell their items online to a global market.

Industry Performance

eBay currently has over 168 million registered users in over 150 countries and the majority of those users are buyers, making eBay the largest marketplace with the most potential buyers! Tap into eBay's huge sellers' market with the unmatched support of Auction It TODAY and the power of eBay.
