Our Fees

VENDOR FEES

We charge the vendor a commission based on a percentage of the hammer price on each lot. Please see the standard commission rates below.

Insurance is charged at 1% of the hammer price; all items are insured while on Waddington’s premises. The insurance charge may be waived with proof of independent coverage. Please note all prices are in Canadian currency.
