Free Pre-Sale Valuations
First contact us by telephone, fax or email or just call in to see a valuer who will advise you as to whether a free, no obligation visit to your house will be necessary or, if you wish, you may deliver items to the sale room on one of the appointed entry weeks. A skilled and experienced valuer will assess your items, suggest a guide price and reserve - the reserve is the minimum price at which the auctioneer will sell, subject to a 10% discretion should you wish to sell.
Probate & Insurance Valuations
Your property and contents are the most valuable possessions you own and research indicates that contents are often undervalued for insurance purposes. Rendells offer extensive lists of valuations and services whether it be for insurance, probate, taxation or family division. You will be given a written valuation for which a charge is made, please call the Sale Room Manager for more information.
We arrange house clearances when a member of staff will normally attend with the haulier.
Packing & Shipping
Our preferred method of dispatch is by Mailboxes and Royal Mail signed for, with the purchaser responsible for insuring the goods. A packing charge (minimum of £9.60 including V.A.T. per Lot, plus cost of postage) applies. This is assessed on a lot by lot basis, but some items are unsuitable for this service (we will not pack china, glass, pictures or any prohibited items as stated by the Royal Mail). We take great care in the packing of items, but Rendells will not accept liability for any damage caused in transit. The consignee accepts this as part of our terms of dispatch and is solely responsible for insuring the goods against loss or damage.
