Selling

We can sell single items, collections or whole house contents. Our valuers offer a complete professional auction service from your initial enquiry – including a home visit if required, giving estimates on value, arranging transport, advertising, photography – right through to proceeds arriving approximately three and a half weeks after the sale!

COLLECTION OF GOODS

If you would like to deliver your goods to the salerooms or office, please contact us to book a time.

If you would like us to arrange collection and delivery on your behalf we use local experienced removers and the cost is deducted from the proceeds of the sale. We can even arrange a complete clearance of your property leaving it ready for sale.

SELLERS COMMISSION AND INSURANCE

15% commission plus 1.5% loss and damage waiver, plus lotting fee of £5.00 per lot.

There is a sliding charge for photography (starting from £5) on lots which realise £50 or above. All lots are photographed and illustrated online.

All the above charges are subject to V. A. T. at the current rate.

ENTRY FORMS

These can be obtained from the auctioneers. Please complete and return the top copy well in advance of the auction, so that maximum publicity can be given to your goods.

DUE DILIGENCE AND ANTI MONEY LAUNDERING - ALL CUSTOMERS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF IDENTITY WHEN CONSIGNING GOODS FOR SALE...Thank you.

ADVERTISING, PRESS RELEASES, SPECIALIST MAILING OF BUYERS

These are undertaken on your behalf to achieve the maximum possible price for your goods. There is no extra charge (except in special circumstances and by agreement with you) for press releases, mailing, or advertising.

SALES ON YOUR PREMISES

In some cases it can be very beneficial to hold an auction at the house, as sales in situ excite a great deal of interest.

RESERVES

A reserve is a figure below which your item will not be sold, many lots are sold without reserve and the auctioneer can advise you.

COLLECTION SERVICE

If you are selling we are happy to arrange collection and transport of your goods to the saleroom. A quote can be obtained. We use reliable local removers who are experienced in handling antiques and similar items. The charge is deducted from your sale proceeds. Smaller goods for sale can also be brought into our offices or salerooms at your convenience.

HOUSE CLEARANCE

We are happy to help to arrange the complete clearance of your property, leaving it ready for sale. Please contact us to arrange a house clearance with our trusted clearance experts.
