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, we do NOT charge for valuing, cataloguing, photographing or promoting. You simply pay a commission charge (15% + VAT,18% inclusive) on the hammer price of your lots. This is only charged when your items have been sold, all items are covered under our insurance.
NO SALE NO FEE !
Once we have valued your items and you are happy to consign, our team will get to work in preparing your item/items for auction. Our expert will describe your item(s) and then hand over to our in-house fully qualified (BA HONS) designer to list your item in our print and online catalogue. The lot(s) will then be photographed, for both colour illustrated print and online purposes.
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 Twitter page, Facebook page or Youtube channel. We also have had national and international newspaper & TV coverage of lots sold through our auction, see our media pages for more details.
Prior to the auction you will receive a printed catalogue that will list your lots in the sale along with a seller statement . We send printed catalogues to our database of clients, which includes international and national collectors.
You will receive a statement detailing your lots and the hammer prices they have achieved then. Once we have had full payment on all of your lots, usually 30 days after the sale, payment will be forwarded to you minus our commission fees.
OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE – TO ACHIEVE THE BEST PRICE FOR YOU!
