Unsold Fees 

Other auctioneers may charge you unsold fees for items that do not sell.  At Trevanion & Dean, if your lot is not sold, there is no charge.


We need to have your property on our premises in advance of the auction to catalogue, photograph and promote them properly – usually at least two weeks prior to the auction.  We are happy to recommend/arrange transport for your items with our local and experienced carriers, who will provide a quote for your items prior to your consignment, to ensure that you are fully aware of any costs involved.
