Selling FAQ's

If you have not sold with us before, we suggest you read the following frequently asked questions. If you require advice or guidance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are always happy to advise clients as to the value of any items that they are considering selling free of charge and without obligation. This can be anything from a single item to complete house contents.

A Valuer will always tell you there is no substitute for handling a piece, therefore we advise all clients that, where possible, it is best to bring your items in for one of our Specialist Team to peruse. See our Valuation Events for consignment dates. However if this is not possible, home visits can also be arranged at your convenience. Our Online Valuation Service, found in the Selling tab at the top of the page, is often the quickest way to receive a valuation. Just give us some details you know about your item and upload images to give us an idea of what you have.

Anderson & Garland Ltd. offer more than 180 years collective experience in appraising and valuing antiques and works of art. Our specialist staff are expert at presenting relevant information for our well produced catalogues and internet listings.

All sales held by us are widely publicised. This includes the publishing of fully illustrated catalogues on our own website, as well as listings on other prime collectors and antiques trade websites. Advertisements are placed in the antiques trade international press and local papers. We also regularly feature in the local and national media with sale highlights and items of significant interest. All of our catalogues enjoy a national and international mailing list.

Anderson & Garland will be pleased to advise on suitable protective reserves, but if no reserves have been received prior to the day of the sale, the lot will be at the discretion of the auctioneer. Reserves must be confirmed in writing.

From initial enquiry, we can quickly provide a valuation and receipt for items consigned for sale. These items are then carefully researched, catalogued and photographed by specialists in each field before being entered into the appropriate auction. Pre-sale email notification will be provided outlining sale details for the clients perusal.

Payment to vendors are normally made within 15 working days of a Homes & Interiors auction or Specialist Auction, and 21 working days for a Country House & Fine Interiors sale. The Auctioneers act throughout as Agents only and are not responsible for any default by the buyer. They disclaim liability for paying the vendor until they have received settlement from the buyer.

Post-sale email notification will be provided to all vendors detailing sale results. Unsold items are carefully reviewed and reoffered subject to our terms and conditions. Where appropriate our team will contact you to discuss the next steps.

Anderson and Garland offer a highly competitive service and our commission fees can vary depending on the type and value of the items you consign. We ask that prospective clients contact us to speak to a specialist directly so that we can gauge their needs before we agree a commission rate.

A web fee also applies to all goods consigned.  This is charged at £5 per lot for items included in our Fine Auctions and £3 per lot for items included in our Specialist and Homes & Interiors Auctions.

Please note all sold lots are subject to a minimum charge of £10. 

All charges are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate.

We require all clients, both new and existing, who would like to sell items in our auctions to provide the following documents as listed below

  • Government-issued photo ID (e.g. passport, driving license)

and

  • Proof of address (utility bill/bank statement dated within the last 3 months)

Please send these to

This process will only need to be completed once and all documents will be stored in accordance with GDPR.
