So you are thinking of selling. If you decide to sell your items through Charterhouse we would be delighted to help. We have decades of experience selling motorbikes successfully, and have a vast list of potential buyers. We love motorbikes, and will do our very best for you, as we have done successfully for previous customers.

What happens next
Before the sale, your valuer will discuss what reserves if any you require, and what we feel your motorbike is worth. We will post or email you your pre-sale notification, which has details of the lot numbers, descriptions and estimates, as agreed with your valuer.
We notify you of your results by email the week following the sale, and two weeks after the sale, providing we have been paid, we send you your payment, with a full statement.
What we charge
All charges are as agreed before the auction.
Generally, apart from in exceptional circumstances, unless we have carried out another service for you such as clearance or collection, we would not expect to make a charge to you (apart from the entry fee) unless we are successful in selling something for you. We aim to offer an honest, reasonably priced service, getting the highest prices for your lots in an international market.
Full charges can be seen on your copy of the receipt, and in our terms and condition, but to summarise; (all charges plus VAT)
We charge 6% on the hammer price on motorbikes, and 15% for automobilia, and 1% loss and damage warranty. We also make a non-refundable charge to enter each motorbike, this varies depending on auction location.
Online photography charge is covered by the above fees – photography charge for inclusion in the catalogue will be as agreed with your valuer prior to the sale.
