I'm sure the owner is business savvy and has a reason for this tactic, however, it's pretty basic business sense to know that you will fetch more money parting our anything, over selling it whole.

The cost benefit analysis is likely the time and expense of parting out the contents. It's a shame because they'd likely double their money by selling items off individually or in small sets. Not only can you increase gross margin this way, you bring in four times the number of qualified buyers at scaled price points.

I guess an auction of the whole lot does eliminate the risk of getting stuck with a portion of the goods, that could drag on for a year or longer. A lot auction is definately the most expedient method of liquidation. It'd be nice to see some photos to get a feel for that reserve price choice.
