How many items listed in an auction are sold in that auction? This is an important factor. You wouldn't want to place your valuable whisky with an auction that took several months to sell it would you?

We average more than 98% of items sold on average in our last 8 auctions. In September 2016 it is 98.5% of all items sold. That is more than 98% of all bottles or memorabilia submitted for auction by individual sellers and collectors that are sold every month.

Equally important is the pay-out to sellers, at we pay-out for items sold within 14 days. It is often sooner than that!

The hammer price is an important factor too. You do want to get a good price for your whisky don't you? At Whisky-Online Auctions we regularly achieve world record prices and we consistently achieve prices at the top end of the market.

There is no margin of error with the way we report the sales and prices achieved on our website. No false claims are made, every item and the price it reached is listed in every previous auction. This provides an excellent source of searchable information available on our website, including the time and date of every bid made on every item (includes auto-bids).

We have one of the largest databases of world-wide whisky buyers in the market. Once the sale begins we actively market your bottles through the website, telephone calls, emails, client account areas, social media and our popular Mobile App. Features in the Client Account area also help to create interest and make bidding on your whisky easier.

We also try to re-create the excitement of a bricks and mortar auction house with a fixed end time for the auction. This feature attracts many bidders. Only those items that have received a bid in the final 10 minutes are extended until there have been no bids on that item for 5 minutes. Each item then ends individually until all bids are exhausted. This means the auction finishes quickly in a time limited manner but with lots of extra bids.

All auctions can be a bit of a gamble, sometimes a particular bottle may sell for a lot more than expected and on occasion a bottle may sell for less than expected. With 25 years of experience in the whisky business, we know what to expect. We can accurately value your whisky within a given range, sell it and give you the money within 14 days of the auction end.

No-one works harder to sell your whisky than we do.

Tip! Most online auctions have a database of results that you can search, this catalogue of results is priceless to you, make sure the prices they achieve are consistent. Don't just go off one price you see, you want to limit the risk (make sure the results they display are lots that have actually sold) and its not inflated by adding the buyer commission and VAT.
