How to sell at auction?

If you want to sell some goods because you are moving, if you have to empty a house following an inheritance, or simply because you want to change some elements of your decoration, selling at auction could be the solution.

1. To begin, send us photographs of the goods you wish to sell via the form below, or contact us for an inventory at your home or to bring an item into the office:
You could also take part in an expertise day that we organise in each of our specialties.

2. If you are satisfied with the estimate, we can include your objects in an adapted sale.

3. We take care of everything. If you entrust us with your objects, we will sign a sale mandate together, which means that we do not buy your goods to resell them, but that we sell them on your behalf by taking a commission on the amount of the auction. We therefore share the same interest.
The rest is done by Lemon Auction.

4. The goods will be appraised, photographed, described, presented online and at exhibitions before being sold at auction.

5. Your item is sold to the highest bidder.
The auction can take place online (online sale) or in person and will then be broadcast on the internet (live sale), thus benefiting from a strong audience with our national and international clientele. You can of course attend this sale as you can with all our sales, as it is a public sale. But beware, you might be tempted to go to the other side and become a buyer!

6. We pay you by bank transfer.

Still hesitating?
Here are some of the advantages of an auction:

An auction allows you to put potential buyers in competition and to obtain the best possible price for your piece. Since you share the same interest as the auctioneer, if the bids go up, you benefit!

Auctions can help to resolve certain conflicts concerning the evaluation of the value of a piece.

You benefit from the auctioneer's expertise to authenticate your item and organise its sale. This is simpler than putting your item up for sale on your own and provides the security of an intermediary whose profession is regulated.

You prefer a private sale?

You wish to sell quickly and in a confidential way, your item can be the subject of a sale by mutual agreement. Contact us at
With a solid clientele established for several generations, Lemon Auction can offer you the most suitable solution.
