BBS Auction Launches

A refreshing new concept has started with BBS Auction Ltd. We believe multiple traders and collectors should be able to see what you might want to sell so we will do our best to picture as many items as possible with our catalogue. Or you can visit us once we start to travel with our auction in March 2018. This optimises the best return for everyone who wants to sell.

If you have charitable status we will sell your material at no cost to you so that everything comes back to the charity.

We combine seller and buyer fees. See how that can be useful on our terms and conditions page.

We do not charge credit card fees and we do not charge a fixed vendor fee. Instead we charge a flat lot fee for all items bought and sold and a commission depending on how much you buy or sell.
