If you would like to enter any items, whether it be a collection or a single item, please get in touch for free impartial advice on how you could proceed. The selling process with M&M can be split into the following steps:
If you have something to sell, simply call us on 01406 422848 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be able to advise you on how best to proceed.
For large collections we can arrange to come to you at your home and provided you are happy, we can also take the items the same day. This service within the UK is usually free subject to the value of the collection.
For smaller collections we can arrange for one of our specialist couriers to collect from your house. This again is free of charge as long as you are able to pack the item(s) securely in a box ready for transport.
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 catalogue. Will we advise of our estimate and if you are happy, the items will be then ready for the auction!
4. Auction Day
We have around 5500 registered buyers so your items will be seen by potentially a high number of people Worldwide. The auction is broadcast live online in addition to room facilities so there is truly a global audience for each sale. We tend to sell over 90% of all items consigned.
5. Payment and Fees
Once your item is paid for, we advise that payment is typically made to you within 28 to 56 days after the sale. Sometimes much sooner. As 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. Inevitably, we sometimes get returns but very rarely so on average you can expect payment within a month. We set a standard vendors rate of 12.5%. There are rarely any other costs. We can pay by cheque or BACS or if you are buying, we are happy to introduce contra payments.
