Very Special Offer

Discussion in 'Commercial Noticeboard' started by Chris Hambleton, Jan 9, 2017.

  1. In the spirit of the January sales, here's an offer for anyone thinking of making room in the cellar or storage facility this January...

    For our upcoming live sale at the end of February I'd like to offer all wine-pages users a seller's commission rate of just 3% inc VAT, as opposed to our usual commission rate of 15% inc VAT - that's 80% off!

    Wines and spirits suitable for the sale would be single bottles in excess of £80 in value, half cases in excess of £200 and full cases in excess of £350 in value. We can of course combine bottles into suitable lots - verticals of a certain wine or horizontals of a given vintage and commune work very well. Anyone consigning in excess of £30,000 value will be able to sell commission free. This is a one-time offer and will not be like the Waitrose 25% deal appearing twice a year! Consignors will need to get their wines to us at EHD in Sunbury on Thames. We can arrange collection in the London area at cost and put you in touch with couriers who will collect from further afield. We can in some cases arrange for collection in person and on-site inspection of the wines. We also have bonded facilities, so if your wine is IB, that's no problem but it will need to move to EHD for inspection and photography prior to sale.

    As a final sweetener, landing, storing and photographing the wines would normally cost £6 per lot but for the duration of this offer, this cost will also be waived. In the unlikely event that your wines do not sell then you can collect them or have them delivered back to you at cost.

    For those who are wondering if we can get the right money for their wines, our first sale took over £225,000 before commission, with 250 lots sold to buyers from Hong Kong, Germany, France, Ireland, The USA and of course throughout the UK. Highlights from the last sale included 6 bottles of Chave Hermitage 1990 for £2600, 6 bottles of Lafite 2000 for £5600 and 12 bottles Latour 1990 for £5200 (Christies in New York sold the same wine in their December sale for $6500 on the hammer, which at current exchange rate is £5250), among a host of others. The sale will take place at 67 Pall Mall.

    Please contact chris@bacchuswineauctions.com for a free, no obligation valuation and quote 'wine pages offer'. Lists of wines and spirits must be with us no later than Feb 3rd and all wines should be at EHD by no later than 8th February so we have time to photograph everything properly.
