Reserve Price
We are happy to agree a fixed reserve price below which we will not sell. However, we usually recommend that your goods be sold at auctioneer's discretion, which gives us a 10% leeway on the lower estimate.

Commission charges will be agreed with the auctioneers prior to entries being accepted.

Other Charges
Other charges can include advertising, transport costs etc. but will be agreed prior to entries being accepted.
