Selling

Submission of Entries or Valuations
If you wish to bring items in for our next auction or have items that you would like to be valued please telephone or email us to make an appointment.

If you are not sure whether your items are saleable you are welcome to email images to admin@kentauctiongalleriesltd.co.uk so that we can give you an initial appraisal

All items entered will be advertised for sale in all our catalogues both on our own website and on our live online auction site which can be accessed by buyers all over the world.

Before the auction you will receive an email listing the items being entered.  After the auction you will receive an email showing your sales results.

Selling fees 

15%   Commission + VAT
1.5% Insurance + VAT
£2.50 Lot Fee + VAT

No Sale, No Fee

If your item does not sell then we have not done our job properly and no selling fees are applied.

Proceeds of sale (less commission charges) will be paid directly into your bank account 4 weeks after the date of the auction.

Collection Service

If you have a lot of items to consign for sale and cannot transport them yourself we can offer a collection service. This is charged at £25 per hour for 1 man or £35 per hour for 2 men. This includes time loading, transporting and distance between premises.   In most cases this charge can be deducted from your proceeds of sale rather than having to be paid in advance.

Probate/Insurance Valuations

Kent Auction Galleries Ltd. offer a professional and confidential service and can provide formal valuations for probate, insurance or family division.

House Clearance

Whether it is associated with a bereavement, separation, relocation, refurbishment or just downsizing, clearing a property can be a stressful experience. Although selling to a dealer may appear to be an easy, low risk option a dealer is in business to make a profit so you are unlikely to be offered market values.

The open competition at an auction can often see expected prices exceeded thus ensuring that your items are sold for their highest market value. With this in mind Kent Auction Galleries Ltd. can offer you a professional, efficient house clearance service that can be tailored to your specific needs.

The cost of house clearances can vary a great deal depending on the size of the property and the service required. We therefore offer a free, no obligation assessment of the contents of the property and give you honest, expert advice regarding the most efficient and cost effective solution. You can then choose any or all of the following options:

Part Clearance

All Saleable goods are cleared by our own fully insured, trained removal team or our recommended outside carriers and brought to our saleroom for appraisal by our expert valuers. Every item is sorted and offered for sale on your behalf, giving you the opportunity to get the best possible return on any items of value. If we find a masterpiece in the attic we can offer it for sale to the widest possible audience so you can be sure that it’s true value will be realised.

Full Clearance

Saleable goods are cleared as above and any unsaleable items are removed and disposed of at a licensed waste facility.
