Submitting the items for sale
If you wish to sell, we will arrange collection of the item(s) and issue you with a receipt. Please note that there is a 3% charge on the sale price for the loss and damage warranty that protects your item(s) whilst in our care. This is included in our transparent fees. Your items will be photographed and catalogued, following which we will send you a pre-sale advice confirming any estimates and reserves that have been agreed.
To promote the sale of the item(s), they will appear on our website and in our our catalogues, which are available on the-saleroom.com and easyliveauction.com. Our auctions are advertised widely and we have a large database of potential buyers to whom your items will also be marketed. In addition to taking bids in traditional fashion in the room and offering commission and telephone bidding, many of our bidders are online ensuring we reach collectors from all over the world.
