Selling At Auction

Once you have received your valuation, and if you are happy with it, we will help you to consign your item to the next appropriate auction.


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 (this is dependent on department).

Charges & Commission to Sellers

Our seller’s commission charge is 12.5% (plus VAT) on items with a hammer price of over £3,001, or 15% (plus VAT) for items with a hammer price of £3,000 or under.

A marketing fee is charged at £10 (plus VAT) per lot. There is also a loss/liability charge of 1.5% (plus VAT) per lot.

Receiving Payment

Payment for any sold items is sent out by cheque, after fifteen working days of sale completion. For more information please click here to read the Terms of Business at Fellows.
