How do I arrange an Appraisal?
Consider sending us some images of the objects and email them to us for an initial appraisal as it is in everyone's interest to ensure items are saleable.
Please send images as jpeg or if multiple pictures use wetransfer (here) a free service; we are unable to receive digital files via icloud or winzip.
Note: If possible show artist's signatures, silver hallmarks and ceramic maker's marks. Otherwise for multiple objects a short video would help with making an initial assessment.
Make an appointment to meet one of our specialist valuers and we will tell you then if it is worth offering for sale. Appointments can now be made any weekday, 9.00am - 3.00pm by calling 01200 423322
Note: Within a large consignment, or house clearance, some items may not be of sufficient value to cover minimum commission; in those cases we can offer advice on other options for their disposal.
Can be arranged at the discretion of the Auctioneer.
For instance:- Where a major house clearance of antique furniture is involved or
Where there is a large number of goods on site for consignment or
If the Vendor has difficulty in visiting the saleroom
A full or part house-clearance service can then be provided, which includes arranging transport.
For our solicitor clients, we offer valuations for insurance or probate purposes and house clearance. Contact our senior auctioneer, Marc Anderson on 01200 423322 for an initial consultation.
