Beeston Auction House

Selling

Auctions can be an exciting and hassle free way of selling. We’ll do our best to make your experience as rewarding and easy as possible.

If you wish to enter items into sale with us simply get in touch to book an appointment to bring it along to our Beeston premises during our entry window each month, check our Home page for details of when we are next accepting entries. Alternatively get in touch with us with details of the items you wish to sell and we can make arrangements for you to bring the item into us. We may also be able to offer house visits and collection if needed.

What is the Process?

  1. Once you have brought us your items in for assessment or made other arrangements with us, we will give you an Entry Report that details how we will lot your items into auction with rough sale estimates, any recommended reserves and terms and conditions.
  2. Satisfy yourself with the values placed on your items and set a reserve price that you are happy with so that the items do not sell for less than you would like – Our valuers will be able to aid.
  3. We will enter your item into our next available sale, or if we agree it would benefit from being in one of our specialist sales, then we will enter it into the earliest suitable specialist auction. We will market your items appropriately to achieve the best prices possible. We are able to offer additional specialist marketing at the request of the seller.
  4. After the sale we will send you a Sale Report detailing all of your items, the values sold for and the amount owed to you. Once we have collected payment from all buyers we will send you payment for items sold, after deducting our earlier agreed fees. This will be by Bank Transfer unless other prior arrangements have been made and is usually made within 14 working days of the sale.

What are the Costs?

We charge 15% commission plus VAT for each item sold as well 2% insurance fee – all together (VAT Inc) totaling to 20% of the items final hammer value. This is only charged if your item sells. Additionally there is an entry fee of £2 +VAT per lot to cover costs of valuing, cataloging and marketing. If you wish for us to sort your items into lots ourselves there will also be an additional Sorting Fee of £0.50 +VAT per lot.
