Selling at Auction

Our experienced client services team, supported by a number of professional nationwide specialist consultants, offer a service designed to ensure the best possible price for your treasured possessions at our extensive Cheshire saleroom.

Catalogue Sales

We conduct regular specialist sales of Diecast and Tinplate Toys, Model Railways, Action Figures, Bears and Dolls, and other similar toy related collectables, when entries are researched, photographed and listed in our on-line catalogue, as well as selected specialist international websites and search engines attracting buyers from around the world. We are partnered with the-saleroom.com which is Europe’s leading portal for auctions where visitors to the site can search and browse catalogues and place bids over the internet in real time, with live audio and video feeds communicating the auction room atmosphere.

Marketing

We have a huge database of clients and advertise extensively locally, nationally and internationally and are regularly featured on TV and Radio. We also operate a popular Email Newsletter service sending emails to registered buyers keeping them informed about forthcoming auctions as and when they occur as well as other events.

Hammer Prices

The Auction Centre has a history of achieving the best price for their sellers - much higher than many other provincial salerooms, with high attendance figures both at the saleroom and on-line, enhanced by private consumers attracted to weekend auctions.

Our Charges

Our commission rates are highly competitive at just 10% plus a lot charge of £2 per lot, plus VAT. Vendors will be sent a fully itemised statement approximately three weeks after the sale in which their lots have been sold at which time the nett proceeds of the sale will be paid directly into your bank account.
