How to consign?

As a consignor you might benefit from our individual support. We gladly offer you the possibilty to arrange a personal appointment in our auction house in Bornheim.
There is also the possibility to send us your objetcs with postal mail. Please make sure to send them as insured parcel in your own interest.
In case your collection should be large or you would like to consign some single high quality toys, we can also arrange to collect the objects at your home.

Which comissions/fees do I have to face?

All supplies to anticomondo are free of any commission. We only charge a fee of 12,50 Euro per lot displayed the catalogue (plus 19% VAT), regardless of whether the lot is sold or not. Apart from that, no further costs are incurred by you, the seller.

Are there some hidden costs?

No, there are no hidden costs. There is only the named fee per lot of 14,88 Euro (VAT included) to pay for the consignor - for our services as there is estimate, photos, insurance and preparing your items for auction.

When to consign?

Please feel free to arrange a personal appointment to consign your objects at any time you like. The deadline for next sales is six weeks before the upcoming auction date.

Who determines the starting price?

The limit will be determined or identified in a dialogue between you and the experts. It should not exceed half of the current marked value. The value of the pieces consigned should not fall below 80 Euro per lot, so that - having reduced the lot fee -, their sale will still be worth your while.

When Anticomondo will send out the catalogue?

Two weeks before the auction starts the catalogue will be send via postal mail. The online catalogue is available already a week earlier.

When do I receive the proceeds?

Four weeks after the auction you will recieve a list of your auction results and a bank transfer of the amount listed. There is no problem if you should prefer cash or cheque.

What happens to my unsold objects?

If some objects fail to sell, following consultation with yourself, they will either be included in the next auction or sent back to you.
