Boston Estate Sales & Auctions
Trust Central Mass Auctions to handle estate contents with valuable and rare objects like antiques, jewelry, coins, artwork and important collections of all kinds. We have sold antiques for over 25 years, and our auction house has been providing quality service since 2002. Our certified appraisers carefully evaluate your items as part of the sales process.
Despite the name Central Mass Auctions, we not only cover Massachusetts but also travel throughout New England and beyond to handle important estates. With two locations at 10 Post Office Square in Boston and 255 Park Street in Worcester, we are able to meet with clients at their location and assess their needs.
We recommend that valuable items be sold at auction where they may draw bidders from across the country and around the globe. Other items may sell better at an estate sale (tag sale) or online estate auction. A combination of these options is typically best.

Reviews from Boston-Area Auction & Estate Sale Clients
“Wayne Tuiskula, president of Central Mass Auctions, as well as his employees, helped my family so much in 2005 when my parents had passed away and leaving quite a large estate in Sudbury. He made it so easy in appraising, moving and auctioneering off a vast amount of furniture and antiques (my Dad was an antique collector) during a sensitive time in my life. I’ve worked with him for the past 10 or 11 years consigning antiques and jewelry and have the highest regard and praise for his honesty and ability to obtain a fair price during the many transactions with him. I’ve dealt with other companies and by far he is the best.”

“Had a very positive experience dealing with Central Mass Auctions from day one. They were very professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them.“
—Maurice McDonald, Boston (as reviewed on Google)
“Wayne Tuiskula is the most dedicated, hard-working auctioneer I know. Central Mass Auctions painstakingly liquidated my 4800 square foot warehouse filled three tiers high with all range of furniture, fine art and decorative accessories. He did so in an organized, comprehensive manner. He fulfilled every promise he made to me. And as a kind, thoughtful and fair businessman, Wayne readily became my hero. I recommend him not only to anyone seeking the best value in auctioning a single item, but particularly to anyone facing a seemingly impossible task.”

“What an amazing job by Central Mass Auctions! They let me know the exact date of the auction, which involved my mom’s jewelry, well ahead of time. They promised a payout time that they perfectly adhered too. The payout was also much higher than I expected. Kudos to Wayne T. and his team for doing such a great job!”

“I worked with Wayne at Central Mass Auctions, and I can’t say enough! He provided us with an appraisal for some historic items, and the results were great! He was very knowledgeable of the appraisal items, and offered some history on a few of the pieces. If you are looking for a professional company, and knowledgeable staff, contact Central Mass Auctions!”

“Our family had a very positive experience with Wayne and his staff at Central Mass Auctions. When our parent’s home in Newton needed to be emptied and sold after 50 years of accumulation, we needed expert advice and help, and time was important. We chose Wayne because Central Mass offered both Estate Sales and Auctions. In our case there were items that were best sold at auction, and others left in place for an Estate Sale. Wayne knew the value of a variety of items, and when he didn’t, he had resources who did. We were successful in our goals, and pleased with the compassionate, fair and timely services of Central Mass Auctions.”
—Mary, Newton (as reviewed on Google)
“We didn’t have a lot of antique items, but we were not sure if anything was of value when cleaning out my Uncle’s house. Wayne was able to look at the items and tell me what would be worthy to auction. The best part was I didn’t have to spend my time on websites trying to sell it myself and it was well worth it to have Central Mass auction it off for me with unexpected money in our pockets! Thank you Wayne & Central Mass Auctions!“

“Wayne and his associates are real life savers. My in -laws ran a bed and breakfast for over 30 years and accumulated a tremendous amount of antiques, collectibles and other “stuff”. As a result of sudden medical conditions we had to liquidate the bed and breakfast quickly. I called Wayne and he came right out and his associates went through and organized the entire house and outbuildings and conducted an estate sale within a matter of weeks. As a result of their established connections and reputation hundreds of people attended the sale. I would highly recommend Wayne and his associates.”
—Russ A., Wilbraham (read more on Yelp)
“I am so impressed with this company, and all the people that work for it. I stumbled upon an auction they were hosting, and went several times to the event they held over a couple days. Not only was everything extremely well organized but the way in which it was held was impressive.
This auction happened to be an estate auction, they had information both on line and in person. They were respectful, pleasant, flexible, and just all around trustworthy. One of the items I bid and won in this auction was extremely expensive. The whole thing couldn’t have been more smooth and I got exactly what I was expecting and what was described. In fact Wayne went above and beyond.
If there ever comes a time I need to hire a company to sell my items, Wayne would be my first call. As a buyer, I wouldn’t hesitate from buying again. Just great people!”
