Online Appraisals

From our Clients


It all starts with an appraisal!


An appraisal is where we can show you that we know our stuff. While momentarily putting emotion and sentimentality aside, we’ll provide you with an accurate idea of what your item is worth, and a faithful expectation.

At Scammells, our appraisal staff are also our auctioneers, so they know what current market values are. This allows us to guide sellers to the right expectations instead of inflating or understating them.

Each of our staff members specialises in a specific area, but also possess vast general market knowledge, allowing them to professionally appraise all items.

Now you have your appraisal, the rest is as simple as delivering the items to us.


We are open for delivery every 

Tuesday – 1pm – 4.30pm

Wednesday – 8.30am – 4.30pm and

Thursday from 8.30am to 11am 

(Wed/Thurs ONLY after a long weekend).

Seller Terms and Conditions


The terms within which we sell items on behalf of our Vendors, are specifically designed to accomplish three things.
1. Ensure trust can be assured between Vendor and Auctioneer.
2. Provide the most congenial arrangement in which to achieve the best price for your item.
3. Allow our Vendors to feel confident that our incentive to excel is maximised.
The commission-based fee is open and transparent. So, the harder we work at connecting the right buyers to the right pieces, the better we all do.
