We offer a free valuation service without obligation to sell.

There are a number of ways we can value your guitar.

1. You can email us with images – supply all known relevant information and we can then give an approximate auction valuation. auctions@gardinerhoulgate.co.uk

2. Make an appointment to see our specialist at the saleroom.

3. Contact us by telephone on 01225 812912 and talk to one of our valuers.

Once you are happy with the valuation and suggested reserve (if applicable) and have decided to sell your guitar at auction, just bring it to us before the entry deadline and complete an entry form. Once on site, all items are fully insured. We will then catalogue and photograph your guitar/s in preparation for sale. A pre-sale advice note and sale catalogue will then be sent by post 7-10 working days before the sale as confirmation.

If you have a large collection that you would like collected and delivered to our salerooms, we have couriers passing most areas throughout the year. This provides a convenient service with minimal hassle. They can also fill out entry forms with you.

We offer competitive commission rates, no charge for unsold lots, colour illustrated catalogues, full internet coverage and speedy payment within 14 working days after the sale
