Selling FAQ's

Here are some of the questions that we are most frequently asked with brief answers.

If your question is not answered her, please ring the saleroom on 01900 827800 for assistance

Do you sell electrical goods?

Yes. Trading Standards Legislation requires that all electrical goods are tested for electrical safety. There is a small charge for this in the sum of £2.60 inc. VAT.

When do you get paid?

By BACS transfer a week after the date of sale.

Is there anything that Mitchells Household Auctions do not sell?

Very little. Gas appliances and items of upholstered furniture that do not meet the requirements of The Furniture and Fire Safety Regulations (1988) are the only major items that we do not sell.

How do I get goods to the saleroom?

You can drop items off for sale at the saleroom any Friday 9 am – 5 pm or Monday 9 am – 5 pm. For bulkier items collection by our own removal vehicle can be arranged. If you are using your own vehicle, please use our Lorton Road entrance for deliveries.

What does it cost if I sell an item through Mitchells Household Auctions?

Our selling commission is 20% + VAT. There is a minimum commission of £1 + VAT per lot and a lotting fee of £2 + VAT per lot in the general sale and £5 + VAT in the Fine Art sale.
