Consigning With Agora Auctions

Consigning with Agora Auctions could not be simpler, and profitable for you!  All you have to do is send us your auction material and it will be listed in the next available auction.  Your lots may be divided into multiple auctions, depending on the size of your consignment. You will receive a pre-sale report, be able to follow your lots in real time when logged in to the website, and receive a post-sale report as soon as the auction ends. 

Payment will be sent in 30 days or less, that’s a promise!  Any lots that are not paid within 30 days will be returned to the consignor, or relisted, at the consignor’s discretion.  This allows us to send updated post-consignment reports with actual dollar figures.  There’s no need to wonder if your lots have been paid and shipped.

Agora Auctions charges a flat 10% fee of the final hammer price with a $15 per lot minimum.  We feel this is below the industry standard and do not charge higher rates for books or antiquities.  Lower consignment fees may be negotiated with very active sellers.  Please contact Tom for more information.

The consignor is responsible for mailing the lots, preferably by Registered and Insured mail.  Once in the hands of Agora Auctions staff, it will be held in a fire and burglary-rated safe at all times.  Agora Auctions is a fully insured corporation.
