Consigning With SebastianCharles Is Easy

What Is Consignment?


Consignment refers to the agreement made between you (Consignor) and SebastianCharles Auctions (Consignee) to sell your merchandise at our auction.  We are paid a percentage of the sale price, plus expenses, and you are paid the balance.


SebastianCharles Auctions earns our percentage (or commission) by providing the following services:

  • Storage prior to auction
  • Cleaning/polishing/minor repair if required
  • Creation and cataloging of each lot (a “lot” is one item or a group of items sold as one unit)
  • Photographing of each lot
  • Advance auction marketing via email notices and online marketing tactics
  • Online bidding
  • Complete printout of consigned items, with lot-by-lot breakdown of commission earned, expenses and balance due to consignor.  Generally,  funds will be distibuted within 30 days from the closing date of the auction for all  items that have been paid and picked up.

Is Pickup Available?

Yes, we do offer pick-up (trucking) service at a reasonable hourly rate for items that are too large for you to transport to our Auction Center, or for estates with a large number of items to be auctioned. To schedule trucking, you may contact SebastianCharles Auctions via phone at 612-790-2918. Any trucking charges incurred will not be charged upfront; they will be deducted from your consignment check after your items have been auctioned.
