Seller's premium and costs

Seller’s premium and costs is part of our Conditions of Business.

Estimate

Pre-auction estimates are free of charge.

Consignment fee

To introduce a lot at auction, a consignment fee of €10 per lot will be charged. The amount is payable after we have agreed to consign the print for auction, and before the lot will be catalogued.

Seller’s premium

When your lot is sold at auction, a seller’s premium of 10% of the hammer price is charged.

Optional costs

  • Import costs
    Whether a lot is sold or not, any costs related to (temporary) import, like custom taxes or VAT, that are charged to us, will be charged to the seller.

  • Return shipping costs

    If the lot has not been sold at auction, you must re-collect your lot. The most common way will be return shipping by regular post. The shipping and handling costs are:

    • €20 International shipping | Standard

    • €25 International shipping | Insurance maximum €500

    • €30 International shipping | Insurance maximum €5,500

    Large items or valuable property that require professional packing and shipment are available by courier upon request. We always try to combine the shipment of multiple lots.

  • Money transfer costs

    Any costs charged to us in relation to the transfer of money to you will be discounted in the settlement statement.

All prices and costs mentioned are liable to VAT, as outlined in the Conditions of Business paragraph 5.
