  • By telephone 01738 633888
  • An appointment for a home visit can be arranged.
  • You can visit us at our saleroom and meet with one of our valuers in person, this is located at 6 King Street in Perth and we are open Monday to Friday between 9am – 5pm.
  • We hold regular valuation events
  • Details can be submitted using our online form HERE and a valuer will contact you directly.

Our valuers will discuss your property and advise on sale estimates and reserves.

Should you wish to consign items to one of our forthcoming sales, a valuer will agree the vendor commission along with any additional charges such as loss and damage warranty and illustration fees. A contract of sale will be issued listing your property and our terms and conditions of sale.

We do not charge a minumum commission or charge for unsold lots.

All charges are subject to VAT.

 

Payment 

After the sale of your property you will receive a vendor statement detailing the prices realised along with a cheque. Proceeds of sale are paid out 14 working days after an Antique & General Sale and one calendar month following on from an Antique & Fine Art Sale, provided we have received payment from the buyer. If any lots fail to sell they will be re-offered in a future sale, you can arrange to collect them or we can arrange for their disposal. There are no unsold charges.
