Selling at Toovey’s Auctions
Selling your Fine Art, Antiques and Collectables
Following your free presale valuation, our valuers will advise which of our forthcoming auctions would be suitable for the items you decide to consign.
If you cannot get the items to our salerooms we can recommend carriers, in many instances we can deduct this cost from what your items sell for, please contact our offices for further information.
The week before the auction you will receive a presale advice giving you details of the lots, including lot number, description, estimate and reserve, this can also be accessed via this website by creating a Toovey's account - click here for further information.
After the sale you can telephone our offices or view final hammer prices online for any lots you have consigned. Cheques are sent out with a settlement statement within 28 working days of the sale with any fees deducted, in accordance with our terms and conditions.
The standard fee structure is a commission rate of 15% of the hammer price with VAT payable on the commission only (where applicable). An £8.00 lotting fee (inclusive of VAT) is also payable for each lot sold. However, unlike many of our competitors we do not charge for any item which fails to sell. A modest fee is charged for photographs appearing in our printed catalogue. Many items are photographed additionally on the internet free of charge. For full terms and conditions please click here.
