Gildings offer, by appointment, free valuation services at both our salerooms. An experienced valuer will examine your items, provide auction sale estimates and answer questions you may have.
Please call 01858 410414 to book an appointment. If you have too many items to bring to us then do contact our valuation team and we will explain how we can help.
Estimates of value will be provided and are intended as a guide. Please note that a valuation for auction purposes should not be confused with a formal valuation for insurance or tax purposes. In the absence of a reserve the auctioneer will sell to the highest bidder.
Deciding to Auction your items
Following our meeting you may decide that you wish to sell some or all of the items valued. The lots can be consigned there and then. We will provide a listing by way of a receipt.
All of your lots will be photographed in our studio to be used on our websites. Each lot for auction is also given a description and a final estimate by our valuers. Prior to the sale a printed listing is created and copies are made available for people attending the viewings and sale. Once the goods are consigned for sale they are covered by our loss and damage liability up to but not exceeding the lower estimate or agreed reserve.
Sale advice and communication
Following lotting and prior to the sale you will be sent advise by email, or letter, of the items coming up for sale and when the sale will be held. Any amendments must be advised immediately by contacting the saleroom.
Post-sale advice & Payment
Once the sale has been finalised advice is sent of the hammer prices realised on each of your lots. Approximately 24 days following the sale Gilding’s will issue a cheque and a statement listing all of your lots, detailing the hammer price minus all fees and post them to your address.
