Mecum moved its annual Fall Premier auction 20 miles northeast from St. Charles, Ill., to the more convenient Schaumburg Convention Center. The Oct. 10-12, 2013, event showed strong gains, with $17.6M in total sales off of 590 vehicular lots sold. This is up from $11.6M in 2012 and $12.5M in 2011. Largely responsible for the increase was a boost in the sales rate, from 47% two years ago to 62% this year.
