Does my valuation cost anything?

If our specialists consider your item/s appropriate for sale at Akiba's, your initial valuation is complimentary. Please note, however, that we are  unable to provide valuations for items that fall below our minimum value threshold or into a collecting area typically not offered by Akiba's. All auction estimates are also subject to revision pending firsthand inspection and further research by our specialists.

How do I sell my item?

If you are satisfied with your auction estimate, proposed consignment terms, and proposed sale date, our staff will draft a consignment document for your review, signature, and return. Once we have received your signed agreement, we can proceed with organizing the shipment or drop-off of your item at our offices.
