Auctionata relies on a global network of experts who are specialists in a variety of different categories. All have enjoyed long careers as collectors, dealers or experts in their respective fields and are devoted to their specialist subjects. Such is our experts’ dedication that they’re quite accustomed to valuing items that aren’t for sale, purely out of academic interest. Our experts’ diversity is our trademark – there’s simply no item of value we can’t handle. And we offer all our users access to their expertise for free. Our network of experts offers a clear advantage to users: access to accurate valuations. In today’s global marketplace, we often see apparently worthless items sell for record sums at auction. From €1000 for a picture frame to €10,000 for an inkstand, and €100,000 for a model railway to €1 million for a carpet, we never cease to be amazed. But finds such as these were often sourced at flea markets or by traders – which means the original seller missed out on the real profit. Auctionata is changing this game. Thanks to our network of experts, anyone can receive an accurate valuation of their property. Whether you choose to sell it and reap the profit remains up to you.
