Western Auction has been in operation since 1983 and is fully licensed and bonded.
We conduct consignment and estate auctions twice a week-each Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7 p.m. at our own facility. We also regularly conduct special auctions on-site, at our auction facility, or at other locations in the region.
We are experienced in selling estates; furniture, fixtures and equipment; vehicles; construction equipment; farm machinery; office equipment; artwork; real property; firearms; coins; jewelry; antiques and general liquidations. We utilize live online bidding for many of our sales, which allows buyers from throughout the country to bid on each item.
Our family of auctioneers includes principal auctioneer David Zwonitzer, his father Mel Zwonitzer, Dave’s sons Daniel and Ty and Dave’s wife Kym. Together the family has over 80 years of combined experience.
Mel has served as an auctioneer for firms in Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska since 1961, and has been an integral part of over 2000 individual auction sales. Dave has been the owner of Western Auction since 1983 and an auctioneer since 1976, when he purchased the original Mel’s Auction from his father. Dave is a twenty-nine year member of the National Auctioneers Association, is a past president and director of the Wyoming Auctioneers Association and has twice been named Wyoming Champion Auctioneer.
Daniel Zwonitzer and Ty Zwonitzer both returned to Cheyenne after college and assist with the semi weekly auctions and special sales. Ty also works full-time at the auction house as the auction manager.
