Selling at HAMPEL Fine Art Auctions:

You would like to consign your art objects to auction? With pleasure, we offer your objects to our international customers. Consigning your objects is quick and straightforward. We rank among Europe’s leading auction houses and use our long-standing experience for a successful sale. Entrust us with the sale of your objects! Please just follow these steps:

1. SEND US PHOTOS OF YOUR ART OBJECTS

Please just send us photos and a short description via E-Mail or mail, so our experts can provide a preliminary appraisal. The photographs often help us to decide whether your items are suitable for our art auctions.

2. VALUATION OF YOUR OBJECTS

The valuation by our art experts – that is carried out on our premises or in your home – is non-committal and conducted free of charge. In case you should not have any price proposal of your own, a catalogue price will be recommended and a minimum sale price (reserve price or limit) below which the item may not be sold will be set.

Valuation via photo does not, of course, allow for an exact assessment as defects, restorations or age-related conditions cannot be identified due to the size of the image. If the item is suitable for auction we will provide you with a preliminary recommended price on the basis of this initial valuation. However, if defects of any kind are revealed on delivery, we reserve the right to subsequently adjust the estimated price.

3. CONSIGNMENT OF YOUR ART OBJECTS

The seller’s contract includes a number of important agreements between you and Hampel Fine Art Auctions, such as setting the limit under which your art objects may not be sold as well as the sales commission deducted by Hampel Fine Art Auctions GmbH & Co KG in the event of a sale, insurance costs and your assurance that you are the owner of the item.

4. PRESENTATION AND SALE OF YOUR OBJECTS

All items will be inspected, described and professionally photographed in our auction house in Munich and elaborately presented in our catalogues, showrooms and on our website.

All items delivered by our sellers are presented to interested buyers in the days prior to auction in an exhibition on four floors, covering a total surface area of 1,300 square meters. Our staff is available to advise potential customers throughout this period. During this time, your item is insured at the minimum price.

Your items are sold by auction to the highest bidder and they remain in our safekeeping until the full sale price has been paid by the buyer. Generally, you will receive a statement from Hampel Fine Art Auctions GmbH & Co KG approximately six to eight weeks after the auction – although not until the payment from the buyer has been received. The statement shows the price at which the item was sold and the deduction of the sales commission, the ancillary costs agreed upon in the auction contract and the right of resale fee. Payment of the final amount shown on the statement can be made to you in cash, via cheque or by bank transfer. Simply arrange a date and payment method with our staff.
