Selling and Valuations

Looking to sell?

Looking for a valuation?

Speak to us first on +44 (0)1534 639998 or info@justcollecting.com.

With clients throughout the world, many of whom we have dealt with for 40 years, we have the global reach to sell your unique collectibles for you. 

We have placed items with royal families, world famous museums, and some of the finest collections around the globe. 

How does it work? 

Firstly, we can provide you with a free valuation. You're under no obligation and your information remains entirely confidential.

We then work with you to agree a fair retail selling price based on our detailed inside knowledge of the current market.

We will then market your items to our worldwide database of collectors in return for a commission of 30% when the items sell.

This rate compares favourably with the commission structures at auction houses. When you consign an item, most will charge you a fee of 20%. However, the buyer also pays a premium – often set at 25%. This means you receive around 64% of the final sale price.

Here's an example. Your item sells for £10,000 at auction. The auction house takes its cut of 20% - equating to £2,000. But they also take a cut of 25% from the buyer. That's another £2,500. So the buyer pays £12,500 but you receive £8,000 – or 64% of the total. The auction house is actually taking a cut of 36%.

Just Collecting charges a flat rate of 30%. And as we agree the price together, you get to choose what your item sells for.
