SELLING AT SKÅNES AUKTIONSVERK
Our auctions include everything from smaller items for the thin wallet, to high-class items, which caters to an international clientele. Instead of keeping quality auctions twice a year, we mix exclusive antiques and art objects with decorative items at our exciting online auctions every second week. The advantages of this are several:
- The sellers will not have to wait for several months for the auction and the proceeds from the sale.
- The auctions become more exciting when they also contain quality items and are thus simply to good to be missed.
- Most items usually fetch higher prices at the regular online auctions instead of being "lost in the crowd" at a quality auction.
Unlike many other auction houses with online auctions, we have gathered our sales to one auction every two weeks. In this way it is easier to remember the viewing and auction days, and collection of goods will be smoother when you can pick up multiple purchases at once. It also makes our marketing of the objects more efficient.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you have items you wish to sell, you can contact us via e-mail, telephone or why not with a personal visit. We receive anything which we assess to be saleable on our auctions - from individual objects to the entire home.
Come to our drop-in consignment of goods and we will go through your items and propose estimated prices based on market value. For opening hours, see below. If you wish a statement by one of our experts within the specialized fields of jewelry, weapons, orientalica, carpets and textiles, contact us by phone and we'll book an appointment. If you only request help with valuing your items, we make statements of a few items free of charge. More extensive evaluations, written reports and home visits we charge per hour.
Once we have received the objects they are cataloged and photographed in our studio. After image processing the pictures are published on our website and already then the bidding may begin! When all the auction lots are published, our newsletter is sent out to all the subscribers, which means nearly 14 000 customers. Selected items are marketed through our international channels, via social media or via traditional press. You can follow the exciting bidding via our online auctions on the website.
Directly after the auction has ended, a preliminary result of the auction is sent out to the sellers by e-mail. The final result is reported via e-mail - or in absence thereof - by regular mail along with payment ca 30 days after the auction. Payment is made to bank account or via bank/postal transfer.
Contact us to sell
Do you have many or bulky items and do not want to lug them with you to us before you know what's going to sell? A good start is to e-mail pictures so that we can tell you which items are of interest to sell and possibly for which there is no demand.
Do you have an entire home or estate that you wish to dispose of - or perhaps you have difficulties in transporting your items to us? We also do home visits for assessment and collection of your items for auction. In order for us to get an idea of the scope and nature of the goods, it is a good idea to begin by e-mailing photos to us. If the home visit only concerns valuation this will be charged per hour.
come to us
Visit us at our premises and we will review your items and give our estimates according to the market prices on them. We will receive the items which we consider marketable at our auctions. If you have not brought your items with you, we have a look at your photos and explain how it works when you sell with us.

DO YOU HAVE A COLLECTION THAT YOU WISH TO SELL?
Skånes Auktionsverk holds theme auctions with collectibles such as free mason objects, fashion and vintage items, coins, stone axes, musical instruments or auctions for a particular artist or designer. A collection can begin an online auction or be kept as a separate auction depending on the range. Do you have a collection that you wish to sell? Do not hesitate to get in touch with us so we can set up the sales strategy that best suits your needs.
DO YOU have jewellery you wish to sell?
Skånes Auktionsverk offers a 10% discount on sales commissions on all gold items, such as watches and jewellery. A photo fee of SEK 50 per item is added. Our gemmologist FGA, Anna Rodman, values your jewellery and proposes market-based estimations. We do also carry out appraisals for insurance purposes or estate inventories.
do you have a unique home, a farm, castle or mansion?
Large and unique homes are best sold as a collection, instead of being spread out in several different auctions, as with many other auction houses. Thus the objects remain in their specific context and the provenance is emphasized, which is usually reflected in the final prices. We tailor the sales concept for auction, viewing and promotion that best fits your unique item.
