For those who consign items, Eldred’s charges a 20% percent commission based on the hammer price, as well as a 1% insurance charge based on the low end of the estimate.
The buyer pays an invoice that includes the hammer price, the buyer’s premium of 20%, and any applicable taxes. Massachusetts buyer’s are responsible for the state’s 6.25% sales tax, unless they hold a valid MA resale certificate. Shipping is additional if needed.
A 25% percent buyer’s premium will be charged for all online purchases (20% Buyers Premium plus 5% online transaction fee). Online auctions are conducted through Invaluable.
Eldred’s also offer Appraisal Services for individuals, banks and estates, and insurance purposes.
I absolutely Love going to auctions!
Eldred’s is my favorite but there are others as well.
I remember the day (you will too if you’ve been On Cape long enough) when the Merlin Auction House was open for business in Harwich. It has been gone for quite some time now, but that was a lot of fun and at the time prices were a little better for “the average Jo” like me.
Be adventurous and give them all a try if you’re in the area.
Eldreds Auction House is fantastic, but
… be sure to check out other Auction Houses on the Cape too!
