It is necessary to make an appraisal of the object to be auctioned, for which you have at your disposal our team of experts who will advise you on the optimum price for your sale.


Once the starting price has been agreed upon, you are informed of the conditions of the sale (commission, catalog costs, and insurance). Once you agree, the Seller’s Agreement is signed, which stipulates the agreed clauses.



All auction pieces will be included in a catalog with the number and date of the auction. The day after the auction, you will be able to consult the results.

The invoice of the auction sale will be carried out thirty days after the date of the auction, provided that the lot has been paid by the buyer.
