How to Sell
TAYLOR’S offer completely free pre-sale verbal valuations without obligation, on individual items and collections, at our salerooms or by appointment at your home or other premises.
Following your free presale valuation, our valuers will then advise which of our forthcoming auctions would be suitable for the items you decide to consign.
We usually recommend that your goods are sold at the auctioneers's discretion, which gives us a 10% leeway on the lower estimate printed in the catalogue. Alternatively we are happy to discuss a fixed reserve price below which we will not sell.
Commission rates payable by the vendor can vary depending on the value of the items and will be discussed when the items are valued. However, unlike many of our competitors we do not charge for any item which fails to sell.
If you cannot deliver the items to our salerooms we can recommend carriers. In many instances we can deduct this cost from the sum your items realise, please contact us for further information.
Cheques are sent out with a settlement statement within 5 weeks of the sale with any fees deducted, in accordance with our terms and conditions.
