Ford Country Auctions is a small friendly auction house based in north Northumberland (10 miles north of Wooler off the A697). We hold frequent HOME & COLLECTABLES sales at Etal Village Hall [TD12 4TL] every four weeks or so offering an electic assortment of antiques, collectables and attractive furnishings sourced from clients down-sizing or simply clearing properties.
We offer around 100 lots at the auctions which take place on a Sunday afternoon from 2pm (with viewing on the morning of the sale from 11am). We like to make the auctions fun and informal but we understand that as vendors you want to achieve the best possible price so a serious eye is kept on vendors' interests....
COMMISSION CHARGED BY FORD COUNTRY AUCTIONS
Buyer's commision is 15% of the hammer price. We are not obliged to charge VAT at this point.
Seller's commission is 15% in most cases but the rate is negotiable for premium pieces with a value of £300 or more.
Please note that unlike most other auction businesses WE DO NOT IMPOSE CHARGES FOR STORAGE, CATALOGUING, PROMOTION, INSURANCE OR FOR RESALE OF UNSOLD LOTS. In this way we ensure that you get more of what you wanted - a good return on your valuables!
