About Us

Who We are

In 2016 TheCargoClub.com was founded by Jay Wilson and Roger Williams.  Jay’s current business, Wilson Auction Services, was looking to expand and reach a larger audience by adding online auctions to his current list of services.

What We do

We are located in Annawan, IL currently serving the Quad Cities area for auctions of farmland to auctions for personal property to business liquidation auctions. We also specialize in OS&D Auction, Freight Auction, Trucking Auction, and Damaged Freight.  With the launch of TheCargoClub.com we are expanding our services nation wide with our user friendly online auction format.  We know each auction is unique, and work hard to make each auction a great experience. 

Our History

Jay Wilson, of Annawan, has 30 years of experience as an auctioneer himself and his family business has 80 years of this tradition. 

His grandfather, Lawrence VanHyfte, began his Annawan auction business on Feb. 18, 1935. He and his wife, Cecelia, later launched the Kewanee Sale Barn, which they sold in 1972. His daughter and son-in-law, Elaine and Bud Wilson, also helped with the auctions as cashier and clerk.

In 1985, Jay Wilson - Lawrence's grandson- earned his auctioneer degree and followed in the family business with his parents working alongside him. He is now aided by his wife, Lorrie, in auctions for farmland and everything from personal property to business liquidations.
