FAQ

Consigning with SebastianCharles:

What is a consignment? 

Consignment refers to an arrangement where you – the consignor – can bring items to sell via SebastianCharles Auctions. Your items are securely stored in our warehouse until they are sold via our online auction platform. 

Is it free to request an estimate online? 

Yes! SebastianCharles offers free estimates through our website. 

When can I submit my item for consignment? 

You are able to submit a consignment inquiry at any time through our website. We may not always be able to include consignment items in an immediate upcoming auction, but our Auctioneer will discuss timeframes, auction lots, and values before items are posted for auction. 

How long does it take to receive an estimate? 

Once the “sell with us” form is submitted, our auctioneer will respond within 1-3 business days. 

Is there a consignment fee? 

At SebastianCharles we pride ourselves for reasonable listing fees and consignment rates. We charge a commission on items sold as well as a $10 listing fee. 

Do I need to schedule a consignment appointment? 

Not necessarily. The first step in the consignment process is to visit the “Sell with Us” section of our website. Please submit the requested information and our auctioneer will reach out to discuss your items. Any in person appointments will be scheduled during this communication. 

When will I receive payment for my sold consignment items? 

Consignor checks will be sent out 2-3 weeks after auction close. 

How do I submit an item for consignment? 

Please visit the “Sell with Us” section of our website. Here you will find a video that walks you through the consignment process as well as the consignment form. Once the form is submitted, our auctioneer will evaluate your items and contact you within 1-3 days to discuss your items. 

Can I put a reserve on my consignment? 

Reserves can be made on items at the auctioneer’s discretion. 

What happens if my lots don’t sell? 

Any items that are not sold in auction are returned to the consignor. Other arrangements can be made with the auctioneer on a case-by-case basis.
