How to Sell
What’s It Worth
Identifying and determining value of your property is the first step in the consignment process, and we do it at no cost to you. Fill out our online form and include images and information about your item or collection and your inquiry will be sent along to the appropriate department. The more you tell us, the more information we can give back to you.
If you would like to speak to a specialist first, give us a call or send us an email; you can also check our FAQ for answers to some common queries.
After we’ve seen your property, a specialist will send you a proposal via email or mail. If you agree to the pre-auction estimates and terms provided, we will send you a Consignment Agreement and Property Receipt for your signature.
If you live locally, Moran’s can coordinate a pickup at your location or you can schedule an appointment to bring the property to our headquarters in Old Town Monrovia. If you live outside of our area, your specialist will help coordinate packing and shipping of your property to us.
Moran’s charges a commission on every lot sold. Additional fees can include photography and cataloguing, insurance, and transportation-related expenses. Each consignment proposal is uniquely tailored on a case-by-case basis, and all specific fees will be discussed by one of our specialists in their sale proposal.
After each auction, you will be notified of the results of sale. Assuming that payment has been made to Moran’s for all the property that sold, we will send the net proceeds (the hammer price of each lot less commission and any other agreed-on fees) 30 calendar days after the auction.
