Selling at model toy auctions?

If you have items for sale please contact us for advice from one of our friendly team who can provide appraisals and very competitive commission rates. We are happy to consign anything from individual lots to large collections, bankrupt shop stock and house clearance. We always have trade stands at the ever popular Ashington Toy and Train Collectors fair in West Sussex and also at the Henfield Toy and Train Collectors fair in West Sussex.
We can offer cash for your items on the spot or put them into our next auction.

The selling process is easy:

1. Valuation

If you have something to sell, simply call us on 07742 609865 or email us on info@modeltoyauctions.co.uk and we can arrange a mutually convenient time to value your items.

2. Collection

For collections in the UK we can visit you at your home and if you are ready, we can take the items the same day. This service is usually free subject to the value of the collection and the distance from our premises.

3. Cataloguing & Photography

We pride ourselves on producing high quality photographs of every lot in our auction in order to achieve the best possible price. Once your items are photographed, they will be inspected and consigned ready for entry into the next available auction. We will advise you of our estimate and if you are happy, the items will be entered in the next available auction.

4. Auction Day

We have access to thousands of registered buyers from all around the world. This ensures that your items will be given maximum exposure. The auction is broadcast live online through EasyLive auctioneers so there is truly a global audience for each sale.

5. Payment and Fees

Once your item has been paid for, we advise that payment is typically made to you within 4 to 8 weeks after the sale. Often much sooner. Some of our bidders are from overseas, we usually give them a period of 14 days from the date of receipt to advise us if there are any issues with their purchases. We set a standard vendors rate of just 10% which is substantially less than other auction houses. For collections of substantial value we can negotiate an even better rate. We can pay by cheque, paypal or BACS or if you are buying as well as selling we can offset one against the other.
