It is now four years since we began our consignment service
to customers and it has proved a most successful move, both for us and the
consignors that have consigned to us over this period. We have handled hundreds
of items from large collections to single higher value items, we have had
individually, over fifty consignors and have achieved a 95% successful sales
In May 2014 we received a superb collection of 26 fully
dressed mannequins, mainly German Luftwaffe, RAF & USAAF items plus many
other individual items from all era's totalling over 250 individual items.
Plus we have had many small groups of items consigned by
"In June 2013 I consigned to
Regimentals 195 individual items from my WWI French, British and German
collection. All items ranging in value from £8,000 down to £80. As
of August 2014 only 27 items are left remaining for sale, I have been paid on a
monthly basis as the items have sold. Regimentals sales record has been superb
and there are no hidden charges. As a consequence I have received a greater
return from my collection than if I had sold it in one hit."
"After considering selling my
WWI and WWII collection of steel helmets and other items through a well known
auction house, in the end I decided to go to Regimentals, who I have dealt with
for over 30 years. We reached a consignment agreement and over 120 items were
collected in person by Regimentals and transported from France to the U.K.
Since January 2013 to August 2013 over half my items have sold and all the
proceeds from the sales have been received. They are well organised and offer a
"I sold my first World War 1
collection to Regimentals over 30 years ago, but continued to deal with them
ever since. Last year I decided it was time for the second collection to go. I
had accumulated over 30 complete mannequins of WWI and WWII aviation related
items. I had never considered consigning items to anyone previously, but
Regimentals offered a good deal to me and knowing their honesty and integrity I
was happy to allow them to remove the items from my care. My entire collection
was insured by Regimentals from the moment it left my home and the items began
to be listed on their web site within a matter of days. To date a large
percentage has been sold including three very expensive items. I have been paid
on time each month with a full detailed print out of each individual sale."
"Regimentals had a very nice
German pickelhaube that I badly wanted to acquire, I had items that I wanted to
sell and Regimentals suggested that I lodge the items with them for sale and
they managed to move all the items very quickly on my behalf, this enabled me
to obtain the pickelhaube that I so desired."
We only wish to handle items that are over a potential sales
value of 150GBP (190 EUR or 156 USD) per item and we would prefer to have a
minimum of 10 items consigned from one consignor, however, higher priced items
can be handled on an individual basis.
The advantages for the consignor are that your items are seen
on the Militaria website with, probably, the best reputation within the UK and
the site has one of the largest followings around the world, this company has
been in business since the 1970's and has built a reputation for honesty and
The other big advantage with consigning to us instead of
auctions is as follows:-
Any auction house will insist on their consignor
to enter the item or items in an estimate much lower than the correct market
value, with the hope that the item will achieve the market value. In the event
of the item does not reach a market value the consignor will only receive the
low estimate figure, less the sales commission of the auction house, as long as
the consignor is not in a hurry to raise the funds from the sale we have a pre
agreed figure to offer the item or items for sale, when sold the consignor
receives back that agreed figure less our commission rate. Unlike auction
houses we do not charge purchasers a buyers commission, which can make the item
even more expensive to the purchaser and is detrimental to the consignor.
How it works: ...
You contact us with you items, between us we agree the price
to be asked, once the price has been agreed you forward the items to us, your
items are fully insured from the moment they reach our premises. They are then
entered on our website, obviously no time period can be suggested by us as to
when a sale will be achieved but our record is good, if the consignor wishes to
set a time limit, that would be agreed beforehand, all postage costs both from
customer to us and return postage in the event of a non sale or pre-dated
return have to be covered by the consignor.
When e-mailing images of proposed consigned item(s) send to
Our commission rates are variable between 25% & 30%
depending on the amount and type of items consigned.
We reserve the right not to accept any item or items that we
consider not of appropriate condition or originality for consignment and we
would not enter into discussion either written or verbal as to the reasons why
we would not accept any particular item.
