What if I want to sell?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Our business is in online art appraisals, art advising and sales. Many of our customers ask us for advice before selling their art & antiques. That’s why we offer some additional help.

If you are ready to sell before or after receiving an online appraisal, we have an in-house art advisor that will work with auction houses to get you the best outcome when the hammer falls at auction.

Compared to contacting auction houses one by one on your own time, this service is a huge time-saver. While provided at no extra cost, we receive a minor commission from the auction house if you decide to sell.

Frequently asked questions

  • What Do We Appraise?

    We appraise furniture, jewelry, paintings, silver, decorative objects, and generally, things typically sold at auction.

    Not to worry if you have an obscure item! Our experts have years of auction experience and will do their best to find out as much information about your item as possible.

  • What Kind of Appraisal Will I Receive?

    We provide fair market value appraisals, which means we are providing an estimate of what we believe your item would sell for at a well-advertised auction.

  • What Does an Appraisal Cost?

    We keep our costs low and turnaround time fast! For just $15, you can get an appraisal in only 48 hours, even on weekends!

    Yes, it’s true that auction houses will provide appraisals for free. Unfortunately, these free appraisals of art and antiques can sometimes take weeks to receive. Keep in mind, if your item is deemed “low value” by an auction house, you might not receive a reply for weeks, or your reply might simply consist of “This item is below our minimum consignment value…” You might not receive a specific dollar amount estimate, not to mention, little to no information about your item.

    At Mearto, you are always guaranteed a response from our experts within 48 hours.

  • I want to keep my appraisal private and not share it on the web.

    We totally understand, and that's fine. When uploading an item, you can choose between making it public or private.
