The Original Earl's Auction Company & Liquidators Building Back in the Early 1960's

Earl's Auction has been in business for 66 years, offering continuous service to Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. This business was founded in 1957 by Earl Cornwell, Sr and to many in this area, our old building served as a landmark and provided them with many memories of their school days when our building originally housed Pike Township School. In 2001 Earl's Auction Company built a new auction complex and the business was taken over by Earl Cornwell, Jr and for over 20 years held weekly live auctions. In 2020, Earl's Auction transitioned into online auctions. In 2023, Erika (Earl Jr's daughter) and her husband Brandon took over the business and are the current owner/operators. We understand that with online auctions, we are the eyes for our customers and pride ourselves on doing the best we can to provide accurate descriptions with quality photos for every item we sell.

Earl's Auction is a 3 generation family owned and operated business.
