Sell Your Kits
Do you have unbuilt model kits that are just taking up space?
Free up space and cash.
Free collection *
No fuss - best prices and best of all - no effort required from you.
Most collectors have tried selling on their surplus through Ebay and similar, some enjoy it but for most it's a load of work and hassle.
We will sell your kits through our frequent specialist "live" on line auctions to our members worldwide, pack and post them to the winning bidders and pay you - usually within a week of the auction finishing.
All you need to do is box them up and sit back.
Whilst auction prices can never be guaranteed our auctions generally achieve prices at the top end of expectations.
Unlike most auctioneers we are specialists - we will rarely bundle kits into big lots, all except very low value kits will be auctioned as singles to get the best possible exposure and prices.
We charge a straight forward commission, we pay all Paypal & card charges, outgoing packing costs and cost of collection from you*. We do not charge buyers a commission, we find this encourages higher bids.
What can we sell for you?
We will sell almost everything model related. We do not handle glazed prints and pictures, paints ( unopened paint sets are OK) and built kits. We are happy to accept printed matter but you should keep in mind that with the exception of rare or very specialised books they rarely achieve good prices.
* Free collection on UK Mainland only. Minimum sales value applies.

Terms & Conditions for Vendors
Submission of lots or collections for sale is taken as acceptance of these terms.
The vendor warrants that all lots are their own property or that they are otherwise entitled to dispose of the goods.
Lots will be placed in the first available auction on our Facebook group.
Lots may not be withdrawn once the auction has been posted, lots withdrawn before the start of the auction will be returned to the vendor only at their expense.
The "hammer price" is final, be aware that whilst we usually obtain very good prices there is no guarantee.
We do not normally accept reserves but understand that occasionally it may be necessary. If you want a reserve price please discuss it with us before submitting lots.
In the event of a bidder not paying, a rare event, the lot may be offered to the highest losing bidder or held over for the next auction.
Unsold lots usually will be held over for the next auction, they can be returned to the vendor on their request at the vendors expense.
Monies raised from the sale will be paid to the vendor when all buyers have paid and kits have been sent and no issues have arisen from said kits with regards completeness, faulty etc- usually 7 days after the auction.
Veteranus Hobbies will retain one third (1/3) of the hammer price as commision.
Veteranus Hobbies will pay all Paypal and other charges directly associated with transactions between the buyer and Veteranus.
Veteranus will arrange delivery to winning bidders, a charge is made to the buyer for this service which does not form part of the hammer price.
All our auctions are conducted under the VAT Auction House Scheme, no VAT can be recovered by the vendor.
The vendor is generally responsible for delivery of lots to Veteranus, we will arrange and pay for collection by Parcelforce of lots or collections where we agree the likely sale value to be over £250. Where the sale value is between £120 and £250 we can send you a pre paid label (printer required) to drop your parcel off at a Hermes collection point.This is negotiable, please discuss collection with us before submitting lots.
How to send your kits
Acquire a box or boxes - the bigger the better - put your unwanted kits in it, decide when you would like them collected, then phone or email us. That's it! We will need to know the collection date, an address, a phone number, how many boxes and where to send your money.
Please note: Lots of small boxes may incur a charge - we have to pay Parceforce per box. If you can't get a big box tape smaller ones together - use plenty of tape to make sure they don't come apart.
