FAQs

When will I get paid for my sold lots from the most recent auction?

We expect payments for the March 2020 Auction to be made by the end of the week commencing 20 April 2020.

What happens if my item does not meet the reserve price I set?

If your item fails to meet a reserve price, we still require the listing fee and reserve fee be paid. 

We will then offer you a chance to re-list the item (subject to fees) or discuss returning the bottle to you (subject to delivery charge).

How much is my whisky worth?

The value of a bottle of whisky is constantly fluctuating according to supply and demand. Whisky Auctioneer can provide a valuation according to the latest market trends. If you would like a free, no-obligation valuation, please visit our Free Auction Estimate page.

How do I sell my whisky?

To sell your whisky you will firstly need to register on our website and then either deliver or post your bottle(s) to Whisky Auctioneer; we do the rest! All the information you need to sell your whisky can be found in our Step-by-Step Guide to Selling Whisky at Auction.
