The auction team at John Goodwin would be very pleased to offer guidance and advice at all stages of the selling process in the hope that you will find the whole experience to be both enjoyable and rewarding.


  • We are very pleased to offer free pre-sale valuation advice.
  • Small items can be brought to the saleroom and left with us for assessment. We recommend that you contact us prior to delivery and we prefer deliveries on a Tuesday. We will then provide you with a schedule of the items with suggested auction estimates These estimates are usually conservative and obviously we endeavour to achieve the best prices that we can on your behalf
  • By appointment, one of the auction team can visit your property to value larger items through to complete house clearances
  • In some instances we may be able to offer valuation advice by email.  All you would need to do is provide us with high resolution images and a detailed description including measurements and any background information that you might have on the item.

What are the sellers commission rates?

  • 15% plus VAT calculated on the hammer price
  • There is an entry or lotting fee of £2.50 per lot plus VAT this includes all aspects of pre-sale advertising and marketing, specialist advertising, internet listings including together with all sale day activities.  For the fine art sale and some of our more specialist sales the entry fee is £5 plus VAT and this includes colour photography, an online sale catalogue and live internet bidding.

How can I get an item to John Goodwin sale room?

  • We can help arrange collection of your items.  This would be dealt with by an independent haulier and we usually advise clients to offer to pay the haulier direct, alternatively haulage fees can be deducted from sale proceeds.
  • If you are able to arrange delivery then please contact us to arrange a mutually convenient time.  If items are delivered prior to sale then we are able to provide limited storage facilities without charge.

How do I check sale results?

  • We endeavour to contact all vendor clients on sale day or the following day by email. If you do not have an email address notification will be sent by post
  • All sale results are posted on the Easy live website and are available immediately following the sale

How soon will I be paid?

  • We endeavour to send out a detailed statement and make payment within 21 working days, assuming all payments have been received

What happens if my items remain unsold?

  • We would contact you following the sale to let you know if any items have failed to sell. The items can then be re-offered with a lower reserve in a future auction or the items can be collected.  We would normally require some notice of collection.
  • If instructions are not received within 28 days of a sale then the lots will automatically be re-offered without reserves
