A specialist will provide an auction estimate and advise on next steps for selling.
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.
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.
Your specialist will present you with your specific terms of consignment, which may come in the form of a percentage of the hammer price of your consigned item in the event that the item sells at auction.
Akiba Galleries may be able put you in touch with trusted shippers in your area who will be able to assist with the safe shipment of your item. You are also welcome to drop off the items at our gallery. We are open Monday- Friday 10AM- 5PM. For assistance or more information about coordinating a shipment or drop-off at our offices, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our offices (305)332-9274.
Once received, our staff will diligently catalogue, photograph, and market your item internationally to ensure the best possible selling price at auction.
Settlement from sold items will be issued 14 calendar days following the conclusion of the respective auction, less the agreed-upon commission and other related fees. Settlement is issued in the form of a mailed paper check, unless another form of payment is preferred and expressed by the consignor. This payment is always pending the receipt of funds by Akiba Galleries from the buyer of the item as well as confirmed receipt of all required paperwork.
Approximately 3 weeks prior to each auction, the full catalogue will be available to view in our list of Upcoming Auctions, which will provide an option to view the auction live once it has started.
