Seller’s Consignment Agreement and Receipt

Once you have decided to submit your item(s) to auction, we will assist in the delivery where necessary and provide you with a full receipt itemising each item. The receipt will also indicate any reserves that have been agreed along with the proposed auctions dates and terms. In conjunction with this, we will also ask you to complete and sign a Seller’s Consignment Agreement, which provides us with all of your contact details and outlines to you our conditions of sale.

Deadlines for sales vary according to the type of catalogue that we produce, please see our calendar for entry deadlines.
