When you submit your weapons for auction, this is your opportunity to get people interested in your weapons and encourage them to bid. Potential buyers are more likely to bid on lots with a good description, all relevant information displayed clearly and, of course, beautiful photos. By following these 3 steps when submitting your weapons for auction, you can increase your chances of earning higher revenues on your lots at auction.
To help encourage potential buyers to bid on your lot, you should include a detailed description of your object(s). This should be thorough and honest, and follow the guidelines below.
If you are using our website to upload your lots, tips will appear to give you guidance about what information we need to know about your lot. The fields that you fill in help to present the information in a way that’s easy for the buyer to read.
We will help you provide the key information about your lot that buyers are looking for. You’ll find prepared fields for:
- accurate title and description of your lot (cannot be in all caps)
- maker marks
- proof marks
- accurate dimensions of the lot
Including strong photographs is key to catching buyers’ eyes, ensuring they bid on your lot and reaching or surpass your expected price.
To allow our experts, as well as our bidders, to get the right impression of an item, we require:
- a 360 degree view of the item
- close-ups of important details, according to the guidelines on the next section
- Please photograph the item in front of a plain, neutral background (preferably a white background).
- To present your item in the best possible and most appealing way, please avoid self portraits, bare hands or a distracting background and make sure the item is clean.
- Photograph the item from all sides and make sure you only show the object(s) you want to put up for auction.
If you offer multiple items in one lot, please provide at least one photo that shows all item together. This will make it clearer to the buyer what you are selling.
- Provide close-ups of important details such as maker marks, proof marks or text, numbers and clearly readable images of any (required) certificate or documentation.
- Provide clear images of all damages that the item could have with a full description of them.
- Cover all Swastikas or offensive marks, Runes or SS markings completely on the photo. Upload a photo of the item without covering the Swastika, once we have reviewed the item we will delete the photo.
Now that you know exactly what you need in order to create a fantastic lot, it’s time to start selling your weapons. Start submitting your special objects for auction.
We look forward to receiving your lots soon - our experts can’t wait to see what you have to offer!
