About Carlisle Auctions


The modern-day incarnation of Carlisle Auctions was born in November of 2013, and ever since, the Carlisle Auctions brand has seen unprecedented success. The first Carlisle Auctions promoted event was hosted in Zephyrhills, Florida. Ever since, events in Zephyrhills, Lakeland, Florida and Carlisle Auctions’ home base of Carlisle, Pennsylvania have been a sell out from a consignment standpoint, with millions of dollars in sales taking place at each event. Beginning in the fall of 2019, Carlisle Auctions offers its brand of entertainment to Sarasota, Florida for yet another two-day, 400+ car event. Supported by Carlisle Auctions’ FREE UNLESS SOLD** guarantee, 400-500 high quality classics plus memorabilia cross the block five times a year and each auction welcomes even more bidders and excitement as brand awareness continues to grow. Certain restrictions apply for the FREE UNLESS SOLD** guarantee which are are listed below.

Carlisle Auctions has been featured on Fox and Friends as well as multiple Velocity TV programs, has sold cars for Burt Reynolds, private collectors and has even done charity work on behalf of those in need, all while keeping its loyal enthusiast base a priority.

Why so much success? Well, with Carlisle Auctions, it’s a few different things. First, with the company being family owned, this motto holds true – “with Carlisle Auctions, you’re more than just a number, you are a part of the family.” And what better way to treat a guest like family than to help them save money and make money at the same time. Here is how that works. The savings come in the form of FREE UNLESS SOLD**. These three simple words mean that if a consignment does not sell, the consignor is refunded most, if not all fees associated with the consignment. That means a higher caliber of car crosses the block and even more cars can be part of the auction.

Further, since the Carlisle Auctions Team wants to see all consigned rides sell and connect bidders with cars, everyone will work very hard to assure that a car sells. Through various forms of marketing and promotion, cars are pushed to those looking to buy. That translates to a greater chance of the car selling and as such, more money for all involved!

Ok, so knowing how this all works, why is Carlisle Auctions THE place to come if you're a bidder? Convenience and simplicty! Isn’t it time to get involved? Call Carlisle Auctions today at 717-960-6400. The Carlisle Auctions team is standing by ready to answer any and all questions about the process and the events.

**Vehicles 25 years and older are the ONLY consignments available for the FREE UNLESS SOLD guarantee. All vehicles are welcome, but consignments 24 years and newer will be subject to all applicable fees associated with the auction.**

In the fall of 2019, Carlisle Auctions launched a working partnership with Awesome Joe Auctions. Complete details about the AJA brand are noted below:

Bill Miller, Jr.

Bill Miller, Jr., is the co-owner and co-founder of Carlisle Events, a title he has held since 1974 when he and the late Chip Miller (no relation) hosted Post War 74.  The Carlisle Events concept and Post War event came to fruition after Chip and Bill were asked to leave a local show because the vehicle they were showing was not deemed to be a classic car.  By giving a home to all types of vehicles, specifically those manufactured post-war, the Millers took a singular show, now known as Fall Carlisle, and turned their passion into a business that is responsible for nearly $100 million in local economic impact.
