Stamp Auction FAQ's

  • How can I sell my stamps through your auctions?

First and foremost, it’s best to call or email us to discuss what items you have for sale. If it is determined that the items are of sufficient value, there are a couple of options. We are in a position to buy collections and single items outright, with immediate cash settlement. Alternatively, you may wish to consign your stamps to one of our auctions. Whereby we take a commission from the sale of your stamps. We can also offer highly competitive cash advances for collections taken in on consignment.  Call or email to discuss your requirements. 

  • How much is your sellers commission?

Sellers commission is 15%( inclusive of VAT) from the sale of your stamps, however this figure is varied according to circumstance.

  • How much is the Buyers premium for purchases in your auctions?

Our Buyers premium is 20% (inclusive of VAT) which is added to the hammer price of any items sold. 

  • Do you have a minimum commission per item consigned?

Our minimum commission per lot is £10. Generally, we set a minimum overall consignment limit of £250, this can be varied occasionally.

  • Do you charge a fee to withdraw items scheduled for auctions?

If a vendor wishes to withdraw an item that has already been agreed for sale and inclusion in a forthcoming auction there will be a small fee to pay, this is a minimum of £10.

  • What are your postal charges for sending out auction lots or retail items I have purchased? 

 Our standard methods of postage are either Royal Mail Special delivery OR by Courier, if a customer would like to choose a cheaper method, we are more than happy to accommodate, but this must be by prior request and it will be at customer’s own risk.

  • What if the items I have consigned to your auction are unsold? 

If a vendors’ item/s is unsold at auction, our standard policy is to return these at the vendors’ cost, if you would rather they were re-run in a future sale this is possible- but strictly at a 20% reduced estimate.
