Selling at Leonard Joel

 

Selling at Leonard Joel is simplified into five distinct phases.

1. Valuation

If you are considering selling at auction you will require a market Valuation which reflects the price an item is likely to achieve at auction. We offer:

– Complimentary Valuations on Mondays and Fridays, 9am-4pm at Leonard Joel Melbourne and Tuesday-Friday, 10am-4pm at Leonard Joel Sydney. Please call 03 9826 4333 / 02 9362 9045 or email info@leonardjoel.com.au to make an appointment.

– Online Valuations at leonardjoel.com.au/valuations

– Offsite Valuations in the comfort of your home or work place (charges apply). Contact our Valuations Department at valuations@leonardjoel.com.au or 03 9826 4333 / 02 9362 9045 to make an appointment.

2. Auction Advice
Our experienced specialists have many years of auction experience and once you have received a Valuation they will advise you on the best auction for the sale of your item/s and estimates.

3. Consignment Agreement
Before we proceed with the auction, you will be asked to sign a Consignment Agreement Form. This is a contract we ask all vendors to sign and it outlines all of our conditions of business, fees and charges.

4. Pre & Post Sale Notifications
We will keep you informed every step of the way via email with pre and post-sale notifications confirming estimates, reserves and auction date. Following the auction, you will receive a notification of the hammer price and a statement detailing Leonard Joel commission and any other agreed fees.

5. Client Account

Leonard Joel has operated a separate Client Account throughout our 99 years of trading. Buyer payments are deposited directly into the Client Account and it is our strict policy that these funds remain secure and entirely separate from our trading account.

6. Payment
As soon as we have received payment from the buyer, funds will be transferred directly into your nominated bank account less the agreed commission and fees after the Auction.
