Selling at Auction

 


 

Submitting items for valuation

Firstly, we recommend you fill in either an online valuation form or bring your items to one of our drop-in valuation events, here our specialists will be able to recommend an estimate for your property based on their experience.

 

Once you have a valuation you can decide whether you would like to enter into the appropriate sale. For smaller items we are more than happy to transport from our valuation events and for larger items, we will recommend local carriers we work with regularly. Alternatively, you are more than welcome to deliver your items directly to the auction house.

 

 

Entering items into the appropriate sale

Our team of Valuers will continue to research your items before cataloguing, photographing and giving them a low and high estimate. You will then receive a pre-sale email or letter informing you as to the sale date and estimating their value, ranging from a low to a high estimate.

 

You may choose to leave a reserve on your item if you're worried that it won't realise a value that you are comfortable with. We would normally recommend a reserve at the lower end of the estimate range. Once a reserve is on an item it won't sell unless bidding goes above the reserve price.

 

Receiving payment

Ten working days after your items have been sold at auction, you will receive a post-sale statement summarising the achieved prices along with a bank transfer or cheque of the total amount.
