How to Sell

How it Works

Whether you have one piece or an entire estate to sell, we can quickly and seamlessly get your items to auction.

  • The first step is to have your item evaluated by one of our experts to determine if it is suitable for consignment. You can fill out our form and upload your images here.
  • If we need to analyze your items further, we may make an appointment to visit you.
  • Once we have mutually agreed to consign your item(s), we will issue you a Consignment Agreement form.
  • 45 days (or sooner!) after the auction closes, we will mail you a check!

The Details

Characteristics of a Consignable Item
We take into consideration age, condition, provenance, and market value, when estimating an item.
Consignment Agreement Form
This form itemizes all consigned property, estimates, and the percentage we take from the auction. All consigned property is insured on our policy as soon as we take possession of it.
Consignment Deadlines
Due to advertising deadlines and production time, the deadline for consignment is generally three months in advance of the auction. We hold 10-12 auctions throughout the year.
Auction Promotion
Witherell’s will promote your item(s) through multiple channels in order to gain the best exposure. This includes publishing a full color catalogue for our luxury asset auctions and mailing it complimentary to our entire mailing list. We also advertise in leading trade publications, exhibit at prominent shows and list select auctions on aggregate internet sites.
You will receive payment for your item(s) within 45 days after the auction closes. Included will be a detailed breakdown for each lot sold.
Fill out our form to consign your items. We will be in touch with you very soon!
