Selling to Us or Through Us!
We buy and sell only the very finest quality models. We buy outright or sell on commission for collectors. With a turnover of around £1,000,000 per year, we manage everything from individual models to the largest collections worldwide.
Selling Your Collection Through Us
The QDT commission scheme goes from strength to strength.
Over the last few years we have successfully handled many large, interesting and valuable collections.
We always deliver the results that we promise.
Over 90% of the models that we sell are now part of this scheme. We find that we are attracting ever more interesting and high quality models and therefore many new and serious collectors too!
We take 22.5% of the sale price; there are no hidden extras at all. This means you receive 77.5%. *Percentage is negotiable for individual, high value items and a minimum fee applies.
It is worth noting that we generally achieve higher prices than those at regular auctions and also that, unlike an auction, we market the item until an appropriate buyer is found, as opposed to taking the best price available on one particular day. Also, we do not charge the buyer, (apart from 12.5% commission for QDT auction items) so in fact, a larger percentage of the value of each model comes to you (our sales prices are not depressed by buyer commission).
Selling at QDT Auctions
Reserved for rare or close to pristine-pristine items, QDT Auctions has achieved truly remarkable results. Unlike regular auctions, QDT Auctions has a unique 24 hour rolling finishing time. i.e. once a bid is placed, collectors have 24 hours to respond by placing a higher bid. A new bid triggers another 24 hours for collectors to bid further; either next increment, ‘jumping’ the bid, or placing a maximum bid. A higher bid, triggers another 24 hours auction time. Once 24 hours elapse with no new bids, the auction ends.
If you have models that fit the bill, we would be pleased to hear from you. QDT commission charge to sellers is just the same 22.5%, and any items that achieve £1000+, sellers are charged 20%.
