Join the newest cutting edge platform in the Uk and become an Intercollector seller
At Intercollector.com we aim to make the process of selling as easy as possible, whether you have just one piece you would like to consign or a small collection (or even perhaps a large one).
Your item remains with you all the time until it is sold and our charges are very competitive!
Send us the details of your item
You can upload your item using our valuation form where you will be asked to provide pictures and details including the dimensions and condition.
Please make sure to check the box ‘I would be interested in selling this item’.
One of our experts will contact you with a suggested auction estimate (the range of prices which we think your item might realise) and a reserve price (the amount below which the item will not be sold).
You will also be told the date and title of the auction in which your item might be offered.
You may be asked to provide more pictures and details before our expert can confirm their opinion.
If you accept our valuation you will be sent a consignment agreement by email.
Please read this carefully and once you have accepted its terms, return it to us by email with your consent.
This will form the contract between yourself and Intercollector.com.
Viewing and Auction
The expert will now catalogue your item and enter it into the next suitable auction.
The auction will be published at least seven days before bidding starts and the auction itself will take place over a seven day period, with each item having its own finishing time.
The expert in charge may receive questions about your item and ask for your help in answering them. Please try to assist here. The information you give may help to encourage bidders and the eventual buyer!
You can follow the progress of your item using your ‘My IC’ page.
If, as we hope, your item sells, you will receive confirmation by email.
You will receive another email when we have received payment from the buyer.
You will then be asked to ship the item to the buyer’s address. You may like to arrange for this yourself or use our shipping partner. Please contact our Shipping Department shipping@Intercollector.com for advice and help.
When we have received confirmation from the buyer that the item has been received safely, we will send you payment for your consignment.
You will receive by email a settlement statement showing the price your item fetched, our vendors’ fees, which are 5% + VAT of the hammer price, and the total amount due to you.
Payment will be made by bank transfer to your bank account.
If, unfortunately, your item does not sell our expert will contact you and ask whether you would like to offer it again, although we may suggest a lower estimate and reserve.
You do not have to agree to this and if you want you can keep your item for another day. And there are no fees if your item does not sell!
