Selling Your Barometer or Barograph

Thinking of selling a barometer or barograph?

 

• We are the strongest and most active buyers of good quality antique and vintage aneroid barometers, barographs and related scientific instruments worldwide. We would be very pleased to talk to you if you are considering selling such items.

• It is important that you achieve a fair price for the items you are selling. Buying and especially selling are always difficult processes and we recognise this. To that end, you will receive a professional service from us in both aspects.

• Normally, we are able to buy your item based on a series of good photographs and answers to questions relating to condition and title.

• We do not give valuations for the purposes of marketing elsewhere but we will always be the most competitive buyers for the best items. If we make an offer for your items, we will, where ever possible, substantiate the sum offered with the most appropriate hammer price at auction.

• In the absence of any market comparisons, we undertake to offer a fair price based on our long experience and specialisation in this field.

• You will generally receive around 25% – 50% more selling to us than the hammer price at auction. There is the added advantage that the transaction can be speedily concluded.

• Payments will made in a manner convenient to the seller, most usually via bank transfer.

• If you are unable or it is inappropriate for you to pack and send, we can make things easier with the use of couriers and shipping agents. Often collections can be made by appointment directly with the seller, relieving you of the burden of packing and a visit to the post office.

• If the item is not of interest to us, we will be happy to advise on alternate means of disposal.

• We generally advise all sellers to obtain quotes for purchase from at least three other sources before consulting us. For the right item we will always give the best price.
