Selling at Auction 

 ‘Why should I sell my Antiques at Clevedon Salerooms?’

 

The right choice of Auctioneers is the most important decision for any vendor who has Antiques, Fine Art or Collector's Items.   

Clevedon Salerooms offer a professional and personal service.  Our valuers are all highly experienced and rely on many years expertise coupled with the back up of auction sale databases and access to a range of specialist contacts within museums and specialist consultants, all to ensure that vendor's items are accurately described with appropriate pre-sale estimates thus affording collectors from around the globe the greatest opportunity of identifying the lots online and subsequently bidding on them. 

Clevedon Salerooms has an enviable position amongst auctioneers of accepting primarily fresh to the market goods from either private sources or deceased estates.  We are proud to be the first choice of valuers for many Bristol and West Country Solicitors charged with administering estates.  

As an independent firm recognised nationally for the quality of our sales Clevedon Salerooms take great care to provide service of the highest possible standard in order to maintain the reputation of a firm that has its roots in the 1870's.  We look forward to offering you this same level of service.

‘I have items I may wish to sell’ 

If you have items you are thinking of selling that are easily transportable you are welcome to bring them to us for a free no-obligation verbal valuation on one of our FREE VALUATION DAYS.  No appointment is necessary and on these days our valuers are on hand to appraise your items and provide an auction estimate (or reserve price if appropriate) and suggest the most suitable sale for your items.  For large collections or bulky items of furniture we are pleased to call by appointment.

‘What sale will my items go in?’

 

We hold two types of Sale, a Quarterly Specialist Sale of Antiques, Fine Art & Collectors Items and our Fortnightly Sale of  Antique & Quality Furnishings, Collectables & Jewellery.   

 

After deciding which auction is the most appropriate for your items they are catalogued in preparation for entry into the specified sale.  All items entered into the Quarterly Specialist Sale are professionally photographed and the images appear on our website which normally receives in excess of 10,000 hits in the week prior to the auction.  These images and the auction catalogue are also uploaded to THE-SALEROOM.COM Web site and also the INVALUABLE website.  Both these specialist sites match our catalogue descriptions with their large databases of global collectors and casual web browsers resulting in enquires, bids and subsequent purchase of lots by bidders around the globe.  The effect of this Internet listing results in exposure to a wider audience resulting in more bidders and as a result higher prices. 

The fortnightly sale is given the same web exposure but does not include images of every lot on our site.  A printed catalogue is available on the viewing day.  Images and condition reports are sent to anyone who requests them. 

 We hold viewing prior to the sale when bidders can examine the lots in person. 

 

How much do you charge for selling my items?’ 

Auctioneers earn commission deducted from the realised sale price of your items.  Some Auctioneers will charge you a commission for not selling your goods but Clevedon Salerooms DO NOT. It is in your and our mutual interest to sell your items for the highest possible amount – put simply the more the items sell for, the more you receive and the more we earn.  That is why we have invested heavily in the technology ensuring your lots receive the maximum exposure to the market and as a result we have seen more and more Vendors entrust us with the sale of valuable Antiques and Works of Art.   

In addition to the basic commission we make a small charge for a loss and damage warranty and we also have a lotting fee.

You can see full details of our commission rates by clicking on the following link: SELLERS TERMS & CONDITIONS. 

We make prompt payment after each sale with detailed statements from a ring-fenced Clients Bank Account in accordance with recognised professional standards.
