What's it Worth ?

Sales Process:

All items are: lotted, catalogued, displayed in our showroom, published on our website and entered into the next weekly auction -  6.30pm, every second Tuesday.

- the lots sell at auction at a hammer price ranging from: the Advised Minimum Value (AMV) to any amount in excess of the AMV;
- if any lot does not sell at auction, it converts to 'Buy Now' and is available to bid on & buy at its AMV for 6 days;
- if any lot is not sold after the 'Buy Now' period, it converts to an 'Un-reserved' status and is re-entered into the next Auction with No Reserve price and sold to the highest bidder.

The commission fee is 15% plus VAT on the lot(s) Hammer Price (see note 6 - commission structure).

Our staff can advise you of bidder interest and offer levels received to date, at any time during the process. If lot(s) are unsold post entry in the initial Auction, you are welcome to exit/remove your lot(s) from this process, providing 3 days notice, without penalty.

This selling process maximises the prices paid by the market. So what are you waiting for? Why not start the ball rolling and give us a call today...01-2930020 or e-mail us at info@auctionxchange.ie
