Single Vendor Collections - We treat it like it was our own.

You only get one chance to sell your collection, and it can only be the right way.

Selling a collection for a Vendor isn’t as simple as just putting it up for sale. In many cases, the Vendor has spent a large portion of their life amassing a collection that is of great importance and meaning to them. Our staff understand this and work with Vendors throughout the whole process. From deciding if they do indeed want to sell, to research and valuation, all the way through to¬†auction day. Using the professional services of Scammells through this process allows Vendors to feel satisfied and confident, rather than unsure and regretful.
