We are happy to discuss various possibilities to auction your valuables to reach the highest possible bidding price. Our doors are always open for your consignments during the whole year. We offer 3 (three) auction options:
1. In-house hammer auction with an auctioneer present in the room. You are welcome to participate in live biddings in-house, via telephone, in writing or online via different platforms (for example, our website and Invaluable). Art collections are exhibited in our sales rooms at Nobelstraat 5, The Hague.
2. Online auction with the viewing days: auction is online, while the art objects can be viewed in the sales rooms during the viewing days.
3. Online only auction without the viewing days: auction and the viewing are online only.
An arrangement can be made with you for a limit for goods with an estimated yield of € 500,- or higher. A sales limit is a discretionary agreement between you and our auction house with regard to a minimum sales price for an object at auction. Should the limit not be attained during the auction, the lot will not be sold. In that case you can opt to have your object auctioned at a later date or have it returned to yourself. If it goes back to be auctioned, the limit will be reset at a lower price. In the case of having the object returned you are obliged to pay our photo-and administration costs as formerly agreed.
For information about the sellers premium we kindly ask you to contact us.
Retrieving your lot
If it has been decided not to include your lot in another auction, we would like to ask you to collect it as soon as possible or arrange for it to be shipped by Easy2Send. However, if you do not pick up your lot(s) when you have been urged to do so by phone or in writing thrice within a period of two months or longer, Venduehuis The Hague is entitled to sell or auction off this lot, against any reasonable offer.
If the costs of the previous auction(s) (at least € 150 per auction) and any other costs exceed the proceeds of the auctioned/sold lot, these costs are payable by the seller. Any costs that were already paid will not be refunded to the seller, in this case.
If your lot has not been retrieved six months after the auction, Venduehuis The Hague is entitled to sell or auction off the lot, regardless of whether or not you have been asked to retrieve the lot.
