Free ValuationsWhether you are selling a single item or an entire estate then Franklin Browns are delighted to offer a free and confidential valuation service which is tailored to suit your needs.
Vendor CommissionOur commission rates and charges are highly competitive, they are as follows:
CarriageFor a reasonable rate we can arrange for transport and collection of furniture and larger items from the local area, please contact the office for a quote. This charge can be paid directly to the carrier or can be deducted from your vendor account. Additionally we are able to recommend a number of other local and national carriers.
Reserve PriceThe reserve price is the minimum selling price to which you and Franklin Browns agree prior to sale; this is a confidential matter between Franklin Browns and the Seller. However we do not accept reserves on items with an estimated selling price of lower than £50. In the event that your reserved item fails to sell we will advise you of your future options.
WithdrawalFranklin Browns reserves the right to charge a Withdrawal Fee of up to 10% of the reserve or lower estimated selling price and to return any item to the Vendor at the Vendor's cost.
