If you are considering selling with Stroud Auctions, the first step is to obtain an auction valuation, whether you are considering selling a single item or an entire collection.
An auction valuation is an estimate usually given as a price range, e.g. £100-150. This is the range in which our specialist believes the item will sell at auction and is based upon a range of factors, including past auction results for similar items and current market trends.
Here are the ways to receive a valuation:
We offer free auction valuations every Friday from 9-5 (although please note we are closed over all bank holiday weekends). You don’t need to make an appointment, just call in at a time to suit you. If you are unable to make a Friday we can offer valuations any other day by appointment. We usually have at least five auctioneers and valuers on hand to help. Should you wish to discuss an item of a particular specialism, it is advisable to make an appointment with the appropriate valuer. If your goods are too large to bring in for a valuation, or you prefer not to transport your items to the saleroom, please contact us and we can arrange for one of our auctioneers to visit you at home.
