Selling and Valuation Guide:
Selling at Stacey's could not be easier; we have a number of ways to consign goods into our forthcoming auction sales.
To maintain the high standards of our auctions, all lots must be assessed by one of our valuers before it can be entered into auction. It also gives an opportunity to discuss estimates and reserves. There are number of ways of receiving a valuation which can be seen below:
We hold regular valuation days with no appointment necessary. This enables you to bring along any items you wish to consign to auction, or have valued, between 10am and 4pm on the promoted dates which can be found by clicking here.
If you are able to photograph your item we can normally provide an estimate online, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, attach the images, briefly describe as much you know about the piece and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Some items may need to be seen in person to give a full assessment and from here we can arrange an appointment to suit you.
If you are unable to bring your items to us, or have a large collection of items we would recommend arranging a home visit. We travel all across the South East to visit customers at home without fees for the visit or valuation. If you decide to place any items into auction, we can also arrange collection. To book an appointment for a home visit simply e-mail or call us on 01268 777122.
Appointments at our office:
If you are unable to make one of our valuation days we can also book you an appointment to see a valuer at a more convenient time. Appointments can be booked via e-mail of over the phone on 01268 777122.

To give maximum coverage of our sales, lots are also available to view on other websites and forums.
