Selling at Leonard Joel

If you are considering selling at auction you will require a no-obligation “market valuation” which reflects the value of an item in the current auction market. These valuations can be provided at our rooms or online and are on a complimentary basis. Once your items are valued and should you decide to sell, our team of specialists at Leonard Joel are here to assist you through the entire selling and auction process. And for your added peace of mind, once we take possession of your property, it is fully itemised, documented and insured via our global fine arts insurance policy.

Generally speaking, your decision to sell through auction can be simplified in to three distinct phases:

Step 1: The identification of your items and the setting of reserves or minimum prices. Submit items for valuation here >

Step 2: Selecting, in consultation with you, the most suitable auction and marketing arrangements

Step 3: Managing your settlement after auction
