Selling at Vendu Rotterdam
Whether you are tired of your old artwork or unsure what to do with the inheritance of a loved one, we can help you sell your items with expertise, experience, and care.
When you lose a loved one, you have a lot to deal with. We are happy to help you with a professional and careful handling of your inheritance, from the appraisal to clearing of a dwelling. We offer both a national and international stage for objects in every price range. Our appraisers use their expertise to assess the value of your goods and are happy to advise you on how best to monetize your goods.
We would like to notify you that we are bound to international and European legislation concerning goods incorporating materials from endangered and protected species. Read here how this might concern you.
When we have appraised your goods and they appear to be suitable for auction, you can decide to consign them to our auction. Our appraisers will advise you on the consignment of your items for the right type of auction and give an expectation of the possible proceeds. You will receive a receipt in which the goods are provisionally described. This receipt serves as your contract with Vendu Rotterdam. It provides evidence of your consigned goods and shows that you agree with our terms and conditions.
After the consignment your goods will be professionally photographed, and further research will be conducted by our experts if necessary. Afterwards the objects will be assigned a lot number and are stored (insured) in our building until the auction. You will receive a written statement of the consigned goods including the definitive lot descriptions and price estimates before the auction. You can always view the status of your consignment in the customer portal of your Vendu account.
After the auction
You will receive your settlement between 3 to 4 weeks after the last day of the auction. In the meantime, you can always view a pro forma settlement in your Vendu account. This contains the proceeds of the goods per lot number minus the commission costs and any additional costs (see Seller’s Commission). The net amount will be transferred to your bank account within four weeks after the last day of the auction, if we have received the payment from our buyer(s).
After the auction interested buyers will have the opportunity for two to three weeks to buy any unsold lots during the aftersales. We will honour the same price arrangements that were agreed upon in the consignment.
In case some of your goods remain unsold after the aftersales, you will receive a new sales proposal with adjusted price estimates for our upcoming auctions. There are no additional costs involved in the resale of your goods. Of course, you are also free to return your goods.
