Because our firm does not keep a physical inventory of its items, sellers on AuctionYourArt.com can enjoy and retain possession of their objects while they are listed for sale. Evaluations and listing are AuctionYourArt.com are free, and you can keep it for sale as long as you like. Sellers will only owe a commission if their item(s) sells. Our commission is competitive. Contact us for more information. When your item sells, AuctionYourArt.com will coordinate all packing and shipping from your location to the buyer, all at the buyer’s expense. Your item will be professionally packed and insured, and we do all the hard work for you.
How Does AuctionYourArt.com Determine the Value of My Object?
AuctionYourArt.com decades of experience evaluating items, together with our network of experts, appraisers, and auction house specialists will ensure that your item will not be undervalued. Our experts draw upon extensive professional experience and use recent auction records for similar items (known as “comparables” or “comps”) in order to establish a fair sale price for your item. Your item’s evaluated price is the “fair market value,” or what we believe the item could realistically sell for in today’s open market.
Please note, the value of your item today might differ significantly from prices paid for similar items in the past because collector tastes and behaviors change over time and with fluctuations in the economy. Please also note that we reference records of completed sales only, not asking prices, since a price tag does not necessarily correspond with the price at which an item has sold or will sell.
What are My Selling Options with AuctionYourArt.com?
- Once AuctionYourArt.com has evaluated your item(s), we will list your item in the fixed-price marketplace for three months. After those three months, if the item does not sell at the fixed-price, we will try to sell your item through auction. There are no listing fees for sellers. The seller only owes a commission when the item sells.
- When your item is placed in an auction, you will be sent an auction contract, and asked to verify your personal information in order to confirm your participation in the auction. Once your item(s) is confirmed, it will be placed in our next rolling auction, which is held once a month, and will be live for 10 days. If your item does not sell at auction, then we will list it in the fixed-price marketplace at a reduced rate.
How Does AuctionYourArt.com Pay Its Sellers?
When your item(s) sells, AuctionYourArt.com will pay you the proceeds from the sale, less the seller’s fee, by check or wire. Payment is made to the seller after the buyer receives the item and our 7-day return window ends. Our 7-day return window ensures that the item(s) sold has been accurately described and identified. Your portion of the sale will be paid promptly after the end of the return period. In practice, very few of our items are returned due to our thorough evaluation process. AuctionYourArt.com acts as the trusted intermediary between you and the buyer to make sure that you receive the proceeds, or your item returned back to you in its original condition.
Who Pays for Shipping if My Item is Returned?
AuctionYourArt.com Satisfaction Guarantee is part of our pledge to stand behind the items we sell. We believe buying art and antiques should come with complete peace of mind, and stand behind this commitment with a 100% Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee within seven days of purchase. Building sustainable, trusting relationships with clients is AuctionYourArt.com top priority. Your item may be returned by the buyer within the 7-day period for a few reasons:
- If the item is returned because the item was as described, but the buyer has changed their mind, the buyer is responsible for fully insured return shipping to you.

Do's and Don'ts for Sending Images to Caroline Ashleigh Appraisers & Auctioneers
The old adage "A picture is worth a thousand words" is very true... but only when the "picture" provides useful information. Here's a list of basic do's and don'ts when sending photographs of your property to our specialists for review.
DO send photographs of the entire front and the entire back.
Close-up photographs are great, but don't forget to send us a photograph of the overall front and back of the piece. We don't want to miss anything important because it was cropped out of the photograph.
DO send a detail of the signature and any other markings.
Signatures, dates, titles, inscriptions, labels — they are all important and the detail images that you send assist us in determining the best value for your piece.
DO send photographs that are in focus and have enough light to see the item being photographed.
If you can't see what it is, then we can't either.
DON'T send photographs with large glares.
Camera flashes and direct sunlight often produce glares in photographs, especially on pieces that are framed with glass or have very shiny surfaces. In order to avoid glares, you may have to take the piece off the wall or remove the glass in order to photograph it.
DON'T email photographs larger than 5 MB each.
Larger-sized digital photographs are easier to zoom in and see the details, but too many extremely large photographs in one email completely crashes our computer system. Use a zip file if you need to send more than a dozen images. On the other hand...
DON'T email photographs too small.
Digital photographs less than 100KB are so small that we can't see the item well enough to give an opinion on its age, quality, and value.
DO be sure to include any other information that you know about the piece.
Receipts, provenance, exhibition history, and personal stories are always helpful and add distinction.
We collect information from you when you fill out our form. When filling out our Information Form you may be asked to enter your: name, e-mail address, mailing address or phone number, in order to process your request.
Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, other than for the express purpose of delivering the service requested. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.
TERMS, CONDITIONS & DISCLAIMERS:
Estimates and opinions of value provided are preliminary only and may change based upon first hand inspection and additional research.
