3. PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY
You achieve the highest possible results with our professional photography. Great photography stimulates excitement, desire, and confidence among prospective buyers online. Using cutting-edge Canon digital technology we ensure high-resolution images in true fidelity.
4. IN-HOUSE PACKING AND SHIPPING
Your consignments are within the reach of a global marketplace with our full-service, in-house shipping department. We ship “at-cost” so that buyers budget more for your consignment. Our professional packing increases the confidence of international bidders. Items are disassembled and packed in custom double-walled corrugated boxes using poly wrap, soft foam edging, bubble wrap and other cutting-edge materials.
5. COMPETITIVE ALL-INCLUSIVE COMMISSION
At 18%, our competitive buyer’s premium attracts more bidders and realizes greater proceeds for you, the consignor. Our consignor fee starts at 25% and decreases depending on the value of the object. Unlike many premier auction houses, there are no “hidden” seller’s fees for research, professional photography, cataloguing, insurance, storage, packing services, marketing or advertising.
6. LIVE AUCTIONS MATTER
Making your consignments accessible to a competitive in-house audience of bidders can lead to higher participation and results. Your items are securely showcased for preview and sale in our clean and modern 6500 square foot gallery. We produce a full-colour print catalogue. On the day of the sale, onsite bidders compete in real time against online and phone bidders. Our gallery is conveniently located 1 hour from the Toronto International Airport, 2 hours from the Buffalo-Niagara Falls crossing, and 3 hours from the Windsor Detroit crossing (View Map).
7. The Miller Times Online Magazine
The bottom line: our stories sell your objects. The Miller Times is a quarterly online magazine where top journalists disseminate the “little-known” stories relating to the unique objects we come across at Miller & Miller. With a subscriber base of over 5200 serious collectors, the stories are shared all over the world and can bolster auction participation as much as 23%.
