The first step to selling your item at one of our auctions is to receive a free valuation from one of our friendly specialists. Once you have received your estimate, and if you are happy with it, our staff will help you to consign your item to the next appropriate auction.
The easiest way to receive your estimate is to use our online valuation form here by providing photographs and as much detail as possible.
- You can post smaller items to us, via Special Delivery to Fellows, 19 Augusta Street, Birmingham, B18 6JA. Make sure you include contact details and any special notes about the item.
- We also offer valuations in person at our Birmingham sale room and at various external valuation events held throughout the midlands.
- Fellows offer an open door policy every Wednesday from 10am – 4pm, alternatively you can arrange an appointment by calling +44 (0) 121 212 2131.
- If your goods are too large to bring in for a valuation, or if you are looking to clear house contents, please contact us and we can arrange for one of our valuers to visit your home.
If you decide to consign your item to one of our auctions, you will sign a contract, and Fellows will take the item in for cataloguing. The seller’s contract provides details of your reserve price and seller’s commission.
Approximately two weeks before the auction you will receive a letter notifying you of the lot numbers allocated to your items, along with a full colour catalogue.
