CONSIGNMENTS FROM THE EC AND OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES ARE AS EASY AS DOMESTIC ONE

Should you personally deliver your consignment from other foreign countries, entering Germany at Frankfurt airport, we are prepared to meet you there and take care of the customs formalities.

You will be charged a commission for our intermediary services, which is purely a contingent commission. The standard rate amounts to 15% of the prices realized. Individual agreements can be agreed, if expensive items or major consignments are involved. Additionally, there is an insurance charge of 0,4% of the estimate. Commission and insurance are subject to 19% value added tax. The commission includes all services involved, such as: describing, scanning, including pictures in the catalogue, uploading all lots online, advertising etc. Commission is due only for sold lots, there is no additional charge for unsold lots for which Heinrich Köhler fixed the starting prices!

Advance payments can be granted in appropriate relation to the estimate at convenient interest rates.
