DOWNSIZING

 

We help your clients when you are downsizing by arranging the sale of unwanted items and arrange house clearances.

 

What makes Mark Littler different?

Once the valuation is complete we advise you and your client on the best way to sell the items in order to realise the highest amount possible. 

As we are independent we are not restricted to selling at auction, nor are we restricted to using just one auction house.

Helping you and your client

By selling your clients’ items strategically we can significantly increase their returns.

For instance, selling a collection of Chinese porcelain through a specialist London Asian Art sale will ensure it is correctly catalogued, marketed and sold for the highest possible price.

By selling items privately you can avoid any auction house commission (often between 40-50% of the gross sale price).

Selling scrap silver and gold in this way your client may save thousands.

“Mark Littler provides a role that has become scarce in a polarised market: the ‘one stop shop’ for an estate’s executor or solicitor.”

Why does this matter?

Auction houses give subjective advice as they want the sale for themselves.

We are the only way to ensure you receive independent and objective advice on how to sell and who to sell through.

Can we clean the bathroom sink?

Yes.  But not personally. 

We work with a house clearance company who can dispose of all unsaleable items and leave your client with a clean and empty house ready to market.

What do we charge?

If items are consigned to auction through us there is no additional charge.  We will simply receive a commission from the auction house.

If we sell items privately we charge 10% of the sale price.

I had some old coins to sell, and had no real idea how to get the best price for them. Mark found a buyer who paid a fair price, better than I would have got at either auction or to a 'cash for gold' type company. Whole process was fast, professional and of all, lucrative!read more

Mark has been a great help and has offered a service that I haven't come across before. He presents different options and explains procedures very clearly. He has been patient and encouraging with my questions. I love his enthusiasm and his obvious expertise and knowledge. The icing on the cake! He comes to my house, takes away things (that have some value) I don't want anymore and sells them for me. He makes it so easy.read more

Mark delivered a superb service from start to finish. I was unsure about many things at the beginning of the process, and he helped me come to the right decision without rushing me or making me feel under 'sales' pressure. His knowledge is outstanding. Highly recommended.read more

Mark sold a cask of whisky which I had inherited and did not know what to do with. The offer I got through Mark was much higher than the distillery had offered me and the whole process was simple and best of all, profitable! He explained all of the steps I needed to take in a straightforward manner and no question was too small for him to answer. Well recommended.read more

Mark has been brilliant since the very first email through to payment. I had contacted a few people about some whiskey and port I had for sale and he was by far the most professional. He achieved a price three times the amount I had been offered by someone in London. I would highly recommend speaking to Mark before you commit to selling anywhere else!read more

TESTIMONIAL

 

“Please allow me to commend Mark Littler. 

He is enthusiastic and professional and his experience in the auctioneering world will ensure that he appraises your items accurately and finds the right auction house or other outlet to sell your goods at the best possible price if they are to be sold. 

Best of all he will deal with the complete clearance of a property and ensure that it is left clean and tidy to hand over to the personal representatives or an estate agent thereafter.”
