*The nature of the auction business sometimes requires activities to change quickly. We will make every effort to be here during the posted hours. However, we suggest you call first to confirm any time changes. Call 919-790-2251. If you have large/heavy items, we suggest you bring helpers!

Due to limited space at SAFE Haven, we suggest you take larger items directly to Raleigh Auction and Estate Sales.
