What happens to items that are not sold on a general sales auction day?
We are very proud to offer a service where we re-distribute any unsaleable goods at auction (due to value) to our local charity network. If you do not want your unsold item or items back we can ensure that they do not end up in landfill and can be used instead by someone who needs them.
Information for buyers and sellers
We have lots of information on this page for both buyers and sellers. Jump straight to “Information for Sellers” here.

Estate sales, antiques collections, specialist collections
If you are clearing/disposing of an Estate or have a collection of antiques or specialist items you would like to include in one of our auctions we offer a free no obligation visit to your property to discuss the best way forward to either dispose of the Estate or collection of items, and how to go about valuation. We are happy to travel throughout the UK for Estate and property visits of this type.
Here at Glyn Jones Auctions we pride ourselves with providing customers with valuations that are accurate and reached after years of experience, knowledge, research and knowledge of the current times and trends. We are also discreet and take a delicate approach in the handling of such matters.
Our experienced team offer sound advice on any items from lower value to those items that can reach a far greater value, such as Fine Art. We always take into account age, rarity, condition, provenance and history before giving you our advice. We also take the time to explain that as auctions can be unpredictable, sometimes prices can on occasion, be achieved that are far greater than the estimate given.
If you are interested in using our services contact us by phone so we can discuss your requirements further and arrange a visit to your property.
Our friendly team will be able to discuss any associated Auction House fees with you during the enquiry/visit including collection fees, any waste disposal fees (should the need arise), commission fees and VAT costs. Any items that are put into a Specialist Auction will also be applicable for catalogue fees.
For on site Estate Auctions: After your instructions have been received, we will arrange for a final visit for the organisation of the Estate to be disposed of and catalogued so that the best outcome can be achieved on behalf of your Estate.
For on site Specialist Auctions: After your instructions have been received, we will arrange for a final visit for the organisation of the auction and make all the necessary arrangements so that the best outcome can be achieved on behalf of your collection on the auction day.
For Estate or Specialist Auctions being held at our auction house: We can arrange a suitable date for the collection of the items. Alternatively, if you prefer you can arrange to deliver your items to our auction house. Please let us know if that is something you wish to do so we can arrange a suitable drop off date and time with your chosen delivery service.
Once your Estate or specialist items have arrived safely at our auction house they will be sorted into lots, given a vendor number and finally a lot number when they are catalogued. Photographs are then taken in readiness for the catalogue to be made available before the Auction. Once the auction has taken place you will advised of the outcome of your items.
