Why do people use our valuation service for free?
If you have a collection and want proof of values, our personalised expert valuations could help to protect you in case of fire, theft or damage.
You aren't sure whether you're ready to sell a cherished collection, but want to understand the value of the estate.
You aren't sure whether there are rare models or variants in a collection and want to check
You aren't sure whether a model or group of models has been repainted, touched-up or copied, including their boxes.
Trends and values change from year to year - if you're trying to understand recent fluctuations you may want an updated valuation.
Why do people sell with our experts?
As opposed to auctions, the value of your model is guaranteed. Auctions are risky by nature, as they rely on the right people being in the right place at the right time.
We make profit by cataloguing & marketing to our huge email database of over 5000 active collectors who want quality guaranteed, which means we can pay best-rates.
eBay take up to 30% of a model's value after fees. Live auctions have to charge VAT and fees on the buyer & seller's end - taking extortionate amounts in some cases.
No being messed about by poor buyers, no laborious research and no obligation to sell.
We buy 98% of our models online through photographs, and then cover the postage cost for you to carefully pack and send them from anywhere in the world. We also pay upfront, so no worries about whether you'll get paid.
