We cannot buy everything we are offered, and may not be able to make an offer if:
- Your items are not the sort of things we normally sell (see above).
- Your items are in too poor a condition.
- We already have a large stock of similar items.
- We've already spent our budget for the month!
The amount we offer will be less than the insurance or 'book' value. However, unlike an auction (online or otherwise), there are no listing fees, commission, seller's premiums or VAT to pay - so it may be the most cost-effective and hassle-free way to dispose of your collection.
We aim to give a fair price, and if there are any valuable rarities in your collection we will tell you so and reflect this in our offer. Please note that our offer will be lower if you are located outside the European Union because we have to take account of import duty and tax.
We don't haggle! Our policy is that our first offer is our best offer, as we think this is the most open and honest way of doing business. If we make you an offer it will be valid for at least 14 days, to give you time to obtain other quotations.
