Whether you are new to the world of auctions or it's something that has become second nature to you, C&T are guaranteed to make the whole process a smooth ride from start to finish. Selling through C&T could not be easier...

Our Auctions      

C&T's auctions are now held exclusively online, where bidding is available through our website, the-saleroom website, and other online platforms. We're pleased to now offer two formats of auction on our website for buyers; Live Auctions and Timed Auctions!

What is the difference between a Live Auction and a Timed Auction? Quite simply, a 'Live Auction' is a traditional style of auction with an auctioneer on the rostrum, selling each lot consecutively until the last lot has been sold (as all our auctions are now held online, our Live Auctions are live-streamed and available to watch whilst the auction is ongoing). A 'Timed Auction' is a computer generated auction with a clock that counts down until a selected end time, when the auction will close (for Timed Auctions there is no physical auctioneer, and no video live-stream). Our Specialist Valuers will decide which form of auction an item should be entered into as they are curating the sales - this will be outlined by the Specialist generally during the consigning process, or before a sale is made live.


Whether you have a whole collection that you are looking to sell or just one particular item, we are here to offer you free, no-obligation valuations. Our valuation process comes in different forms so that you can select the one to best suit you. You can get in touch today, either by telephone or email, where we can arrange valuing your items at our office (Unit 4 High House Business Park, Kenardington, Nr Ashford, Kent, TN26 2LF). Contact us here!

Alternatively, we can offer home visits depending on your collection, by prior appointment should your items be too large, too numerous or you are simply unable to bring them to us.

We also have an online valuation process which requires you to fill out our questionnaire, upload any images you may have of the item(s) in question and, upon submitting, await the appropriate specialists response. We aim to get back to you with the week, but during busy times it may take a little longer.

Lastly, we hold open specialist valuation days at various locations throughout the year, within the South East and London. Information for these can be found on our Upcoming Valuations Day web page, and are advertised online.


C&T auctioneers have a simple fee structure, which is one-fee-covers-all. Not only is our fee one of the lowest for a specialist auction house in the UK, but we do NOT charge for valuing, cataloguing, photographing or promoting. You simply pay one commission charge of 18% + VAT (21.6% inclusive) on the hammer price of your sold lots. This is only charged once your items have been sold, all items are covered under our insurance, and if there is no sale, there's no fee!


Once we have valued your items and you are happy to consign, our team will get to work preparing your item(s) for auction. Our specialist valuer will describe your item(s) for our online catalogue, and the lot(s) will then be photographed for both colour illustrated print and online purposes. For many of our auctions, we send printed promotional catalogues/brochures to our database of clients, which includes international and national collectors!


With the growth in Internet and print promotion, we may select your item to have its own promotional campaign; this will include social media coverage through our Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter pages, or our Youtube channel. We also often have national and international newspaper, magazine & TV coverage of lots sold through our auctions.

Pre Auction & Post Auction

Prior to the auction you will receive a sellers pre-sale statement.

In the days following the sale you will receive a statement detailing your lots and the hammer prices they have achieved at auction. Once we have received full payment on all of your lots from the buyers, payment will be forwarded to you minus our commission fees, usually within 30 working days after the sale.

Our goal is simple – To achieve the best price for you!
