Heffel Fine Art Auction House and heffel.com are divisions of Heffel Gallery Limited. Together, our three operations offer individuals, collectors, corporations and public entities a full service structure for the successful de-acquisition of their artworks.
Interested parties should contact us to arrange for a private and confidential appointment to discuss their preferred method of disposition and to analyse preliminary auction estimates, pre~sale reserves and consignment procedures. This service is offered free of charge.
If you are from out of town, or are unable to visit us at our premises, we would be pleased to assess the saleability of your artworks by mail, email or courier. Please provide us with photographic or facsimile reproductions of the artworks and information pertaining to title, artist, medium, size, date, provenance, etc. Representatives of our firm travel regularly to major Canadian cities to meet with prospective sellers and purchasers.
It is recommended that property for inclusion in our sale arrives at Heffel Fine Art Auction House at least 90 days prior to our auction. Property for our online auction sale should arrive at least 5 days prior to the Internet posting of our sale. This allows time to photograph, research, catalogue, promote, and complete any required work such as re~framing, cleaning or restoration. All property is stored free of charge until the auction; however, insurance is the Consignor's expense.
Heffel is pleased to extend industry competitive commission rates that reflect our superior service and selling ability. Our Consignment Agreement together with our Consignment Receipt, our Property Collection Notice and our Terms and Conditions of Business outline our consignment terms in full.
Heffel maintains a sophisticated property control system at all of our locations nationally.
