Advantages of selling through Grev Wedels Plass Auksjoner
Grev Wedels Plass Auksjoner has a professional staff some with over twenty years of experience in this field. We emphasize quality at every stage, personal service and low costs for clients. The staff travels both domestically and abroad valuing art. We have an extensive network, both Norwegian and international, with regard to buyers and sellers.
A successful art sale requires contact with the right buyers, and the use of professional marketing to reach the clients. We establish tailor-made marketing strategies for every object we agree to sell. There are many important aspects to our marketing mix such as internet presentations, comprehensive presentation including text and photo in the auction catalogue, previews out of town and abroad, direct contact with potential buyers etc. Cleaning and restoration of paintings and frames can also have a positive effect on sales results. All of this is arranged with each individual seller before we agree on the cost of the commission.
Low costs for the seller
The prime concern for a seller is the net value paid to him after the sale. We maintain that a seller’s costs should be reasonable, and in proportion to our sales effort and to the end result. Our policy is «No cure no pay».
