Billy S. Humphries and Les Taylor established South Coast Auction in August 1977. South Coast Auction is a bonded, licensed, D&B-rated, nationally known auction company. Our customer base is local, national and international.
South Coast Auction conducts weekly general merchandise auctions at our 3-acre, 60,000-square-foot facility located at 2202 South Main Street in Santa Ana, California. South Coast Auction also conducts onsite sales regularly.
South Coast Auction purchases and sells on consignment all types of general merchandise, home and business furnishings and equipment. The company deals in antiques, fine art, jewelry, objets d’art, along with tools, machinery and surplus merchandise of every description.
Previous to opening South Coast Auction, Billy Humphries was associated with CC & Company, buying and selling new and used domestic and business furniture and equipment from 1965 until 1977. We have a wide range of experience dealing with new home furnishings over the last 47 years!
The partners enjoy and conduct many charity fundraiser auctions. On many of these, we donate our time and efforts; on some, we are hired auctioneers.
Many of our customers sell and consign excess inventory through South Coast Auction, stipulating minimal notoriety due to false public assumptions about merchandise going to “auction” (e.g. business failure, etc.). These companies include banks, financial institutions, fast food and restaurant chains, furniture manufacturers and retailers, relocation companies, medical firms, electronics manufacturers, machinery vendors, and many more.
If you have furniture questions or would like more specific information relating to your personal requirements, please contact us at your convenience.
