Selling at Lauritz.com

 

At Lauritz.com you can sell everything from furniture and art to electronics and design. Your items are sold at online auction, where our hundreds of thousands weekly visitors can see your lots and bid on them.

How does it work?

  1. Firstly your item is valued – so you have a good idea of what you can get for it. Our valuation specialists can be reached by phone, at our auction houses and online.
  2. Your item is consigned at an auction house. Here, it is described and professional photos are taken before it is put on auction.
  3. Our visitors bid on your item online – over 90 % of all lots sell first time round, and typically within 7 days.
  4. Your profit from the sale is paid directly to your bank account

 

What does it cost?
At Lauritz.com you only pay if your item is sold. If your item is not sold first time round it is put on auction again, up to three times. When it is sold you pay 15 % of the hammer price (sales price) – as well as a DKK/SEK/NOK 150, EUR 20 hammer fee. This is automatically deducted from the hammer price, and your profit from the sale is transferred directly to your bank account.

From scrap heap to record sale 
A lady from Norway called us as her parents were about to throw out some furniture including a chair she thought might be worth selling. 

Lauritz.com thought the chair sounded interesting too, and on further investigation we found it actually to be The Ox with accompanying ottoman designed by Arne Jacobsen. The chair was sent from its home in Norway to Lauritz.com in Denmark. The chair complete with ottoman, a rare and highly sought after find, fetched over EUR 18,000 at auction. 

EUR 1,300 vs. EUR 21,000 
A company was closing down and was contacted by someone offering to buy their fixtures and fittings for EUR 1,300. Our valuation specialists advised the company to put the items on auction at Lauritz.com instead. The amount achieved at auction was EUR 21,000.
