If you are thinking of selling an item (either singly or as a collection) then we are more than happy to help. With our considerable expertise in the market and our international online reach, we are confident that we can help you realise the best possible prices for your possessions.

Why choose us?

It used to be that the highest prices were automatically achieved by the larger city-based auction houses. This is no longer the case and in today’s online market place it is possible to reach all corners of the globe via the Internet and other media outlets. J. Stuart Watson is also keen to operate in a very transparent and straightforward way, making the buying and selling process easier for clients with no additional fees or hidden extras, making us one of the most competitive auction houses in the region.

Price estimates

Following our specialist valuation, we will suggest a price estimate based on current market prices and trends. You may also wish to agree on a reserve price before sale. This guarantees a minimum price for your item.


Your item will be entered into the most next available auction. When it sells, you will be notified of the price and receive settlement statements and payment within ten working days, as long as we have cleared payment from the buyer.  All results will be available on our online bidding platform shortly after the auction has taken place.

Free appraisals

You can call us to arrange a free, no-obligation valuation. We can also visit you at your home or business premises if this is more convenient or for the valuation of larger items or collections. We offer an online E Valuation service, simply upload the images of your lots to sell and we will provide an auction estimate by return. 

Item to the saleroom transfer

If you are unable to deliver your item to our saleroom then we can help arrange collection of your item. Please contact us for more details of this service.

Vendors’ fees

J. Stuart Watson offers a highly competitive service and therefore for items/consignments of the significant value we encourage clients to contact us directly so that we can gauge their needs before we agree on a commission rate.
