Selling at Auction
Selling items at auction can be one of the best ways to realize the highest monetary value. Items sold at auction vary and so do the auction fees. Auction costs, and auction house fees, also vary and can be substantial. Some auction house prices charged to clients can include transportation of items to gallery, storage fees, catalog fees, advertising fees, and more.
Scott Daniel’s GoNBid makes selling at auction simple. Selling your property at auction, both at our gallery and live online auctions, we achieve maximum exposure for items selling at auction. Our normal commission is 15%.
