Using Auction Houses To Sell Your Valuables Is Expensive & Unreliable

Traditionally, the general public looking to sell items of value, would think an auction house to be the most profitable way of achieving the highest price for their valuables; however due to excessive fees and commissions at an all-time high, the auction will take a huge percentage of the sold price achieved and buyers will generally bid below the current market value.

If selling through auction you may only receive half of the true value of your items. Portobello Fine Arts and Antiques can offer you a private home visit service; giving you a FREE NO OBLIGATION VALUATION in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

Should you accept our valuation and offer, we can purchase your items immediately and you receive payment at the point of purchase.
