Your team-mates in selling.
When you sell with Scammells, the keyword behind all that we do is ‘trust’.
We get it. We treat your items like they are our Grandmothers.
We sell more than 1,000 lots each week, and over 55,000 per year. That’s more than any auction room in Australia. With first-hand market research like that, you know we walk the walk.
When you entrust us with your treasured items, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure you obtain the right price. Auctions are no longer about “who is in the room”, our technology connects our buyers from across the Globe to our sale room.Request Appraisal
Scammells Guide to Selling at Auction
Jason Harris, our Director, Auctioneer and Industry leader has written a guide to Selling At Auction. In this short guide Jason shares some of his 30+ years of Auction industry experience and helps guide vendors selling at Auctions. UPDATE – guide coming soon.
It all starts with an appraisal!
An appraisal is where we can show you that we know our stuff. While momentarily putting emotion and sentimentality aside, we’ll provide you with an accurate idea of what your item is worth, and a faithful expectation. At Scammells, our appraisal staff are also our auctioneers, so they know what current market values are. This allows us to guide sellers to the right expectations instead of inflating or understating them. Each of our staff members specialises in a specific area, but also possess vast general market knowledge, allowing them to professionally appraise all items.
Now you have your appraisal, the rest is a simple as delivering the items to us.
We are open for delivery every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8.30am to 4.30pm (Wed/Thurs only after a long weekend).
Seller Terms and Conditions
The terms within which we sell items on behalf of our Vendors, are specifically designed to accomplish three things.
1. Ensure trust can be assured between Vendor and Auctioneer.
2. Provide the most congenial arrangement in which to achieve the best price for your item.
3. Allow our Vendors to feel confident that our incentive to excel is maximised.
The commission-based fee is open and transparent. So, the harder we work at connecting the right buyers to the right pieces, the better we all do.
At Scammells, it’s our belief that expectations are managed best with
honesty, experience, and knowledge.
Scammells are one of the few remaining auctioneers who understand what it means to be a ‘full-service auction room’. For sellers and buyers, we offer a complete service including appraisal, packaging, transport, research, and auction. We welcome you to use our services in all these areas, or just the ones you need.
