While the auction market is often one of the best venues to acquire and/or sell property, it can also be a difficult marketplace to navigate. The Collector’s Lab can provide representation to help you with the following aspects of the auction process:

Confidential Bidding

Many collector's prefer to maintain their anonymity when bidding at auction. We can assist by acting as an agent bidding on behalf of clients who prefer to keep their personal information confidential.


We can assist in explaining commission structures and industry standard terms and practices. We will also work to ensure that you and your collection find the best venue and the most beneficial financial terms available when selling property at auction.

Advisory Services

We can advise you on potential auction purchases and act on your behalf throughout the auction process, handling inquiries and condition report requests as well as attending public exhibitions to inspect property first hand.
