There is a straightforward process to go through if you'd like to sell your item through us at auction:
Arrange for a free valuation of your item (see below for how to do this)
If we feel the item is suitable for sale we will advise which sale would be best for it and arrange for you to leave it with us on valuation or deliver it to us by the closing date before the sale.
If appropriate we will agree a reserve price with you before the sale, if a reserve is not agreed we will use Auctioneers Discretion.
You will receive an email sale notification prior to the sale, if you have provided us with an email address.
Your item will be entered into auction, if it sells then you will receive a cheque 21 working days from the sale, provided we have received payment.
We offer a free valuation service for your items - you can arrange this in one of three ways:
Send details and an image to the saleroom via email
and one of our specialists will get back to you.
Bring the item in to the saleroom, telephone us in advance on 01380 729199 to ensure the appropriate specialist is on hand.
