How does an online whisky auction work?
Individual sellers deliver bottles that they wish to sell at auction to our office in Perth. Once they have been authenticated by our highly-experienced team, photographs are taken and the bottles are listed on the website in the next available auction. Whisky Auctioneer hosts whisky auctions on a frequent basis, during which registered users across the globe can bid on bottles online. The highest bidder at the close of the auction is then notified by email and asked for payment within 3 days. The seller receives payment within 21 working days of the end of the auction.
I have a large collection to sell - can Whisky Auctioneer help me?
Yes. Whisky Auctioneer can offer sellers a full range of services when it comes to larger private collections. The time and effort required to build such a collection shows commitment, care and enthusiasm and as whisky enthusiasts ourselves, we understand this and use our extensive experience in order to treat collectors prized possessions with the respect, esteem and attention they deserve. We work hand in hand with private collectors to make the process of using our services as seamless and straightforward as possible.
