We deduct commission of 15% on all items sold. Goods are automatically insured at a cost of 1.5% (minimum £1.50 per lot) whilst in our care. All lots are subject to a minimum charge of £5 whether sold or unsold.
All lots are subject to a Internet illustration charge of £2.50 per lot. Catalogue illustrations will be agreed in advance if applicable.
Removals and Collections by contracted carriers, where required, are charged at cost and can be deducted from the sale proceeds.
All charges are subject to VAT at the current rate.
Commission on higher value items or larger consignments may be negotiated with the auctioneer.
Unlike many auctioneers who retain your money for over a month after the sale, we pay out within 14 working days, greatly facilitating cash flow for business clients and confirming our commitment to the highest quality service. A detailed sales statement, clearly showing individual details for all lots and the charges deducted is always provided.
A buyers premium of 20% plus VAT on the premium is charged on all lots purchased. (Fee’s apply for ‘live’ internet purchases)
