Receive a Valuation


Whether you wish to sell a single piece of art, a large collection, or the contents of a house, there are a number of ways to have your property valued by a Christie's expert:

Complimentary estimates are provisional and subject to revision after one of our specialists has examined your property.

Once we have determined that your property is appropriate for sale at auction, our specialists will discuss with you the most appropriate season and venue to ensure the strongest bidding for the property.

Alternatively, Christie’s can help broker a private sale, avoiding the restrictions of the auction calendar. Our worldwide network of specialists will work one-on-one with you to offer advice on private sale strategies and to help you shape your collection.

Sign a Seller's Agreement

Before you sell your property at Christie's, you must sign a consignment agreement. This is the contract we have with our sellers in which we agree to sell their property in one of our salerooms. It lists our terms and fees for services such as insurance, loss/damage liability, shipping and illustration.

Make Shipping Arrangements

Christie’s can help you arrange packing and shipping or you may use your own carrier. Please contact the Art Transport Department for further details.
