I’d like to sell my instrument/bow, can you tell me how much it is worth?
If you have an instrument or bow that you are considering selling, we would be very pleased to provide a complimentary, no obligation valuation. If you live close enough to visit our New York or London office in person, we suggest contacting us to arrange an appointment to speak with one of our specialists. If that isn’t an option, we are always available to offer a preliminary evaluation via email. You can learn more about submitting photos and upload them to our site here.
I don’t live near New York or London, but would like to meet with one of your specialist in person, do you ever visit other cities?
Yes! Our specialists travel frequently around the United States and Europe to offer complimentary evaluations of instruments and bows. To register your interest in meeting with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I sold something in this sale, when will I receive my proceeds?
Consignor proceeds for both New York & London auctions are distributed 30 days after the close of a sale. Our default method of payment is by check (checks are issued in US dollars for New York sales and pounds sterling for London sales), but a wire transfer is also available for an additional fee.
I am selling something in the auction, how can I track my item in the sale?
Once the sale goes live on our site, you will be emailed your lot # for any item/s listed in that sale.
I want to sell something at auction, what percentage do you take as a commission?
Seller’s premiums are only charged if the instrument or bow consigned to auction sells successfully. The seller’s commission is 20% of the hammer price up to and including $10,000 (£8,000), with no additional charges for the amount thereafter. There is a separate 1% taken on the hammer price for insurance coverage.
