You have an old item to sell, you need some extra cash and you are wondering what to do in order to get some good money. Instead of listing your item online and waiting for a client to pop up, why don’t you sell to an antique dealer in Suffolk instead? Whether it is an independent antique dealer in Suffolk or an antique mall, there are many options you have to sell your item quickly and get some good cash. However, you are maybe wondering how you can find the right antique dealer in Suffolk and how to make sure you are getting the best deal for your item. Selling to a local antique dealer in Suffolk saves you extra money from paying the fees you will be charged when selling online or the whole stress of collecting credit card payments from buyers and selling the item. Selling to an antique dealer in Suffolk instead is significantly easier and simpler. So here are some tips and tricks for how to sell old items to an antique dealer in Suffolk and what to expect.

Research an Antique Dealer in Suffolk First

Of course, everything starts with good research and finding an antique dealer in Suffolk does not make any exception. In addition, when selling to an antique dealer in Suffolk, don’t expect them to do all the hard work for you and tell you all the in-depth information about the items you are selling and their value. Instead, before you visit an antique dealer in Suffolk, research and try to find more information about the items you are wanting to sell so you can have a better idea of what price to expect. An antique dealer in Suffolk most probably won’t be willing to give you an evaluation for free, and rightly so.

Selling to an Antique Dealer in Suffolk – Expect a Quarter or a Half off the Retail Price

When selling items to an antique dealer in Suffolk it is very important to have a realistic idea of the money you will be able to get. After you do the important price-research and before you visit the antique dealer in Suffolk, have a good idea of what price you can get and be prepared to be offered a price usually a quarter to fifty percent off the original or retail price of the items. Don’t be surprised, this is usually how every antique dealer in Suffolk will work. Every antique dealer in Suffolk has overhead expenses, even when selling online. With an antique dealer in Suffolk, you can benefit from quick cash and this is the biggest advantage of this kind of deal.

Be Prepared to State Your Price to an Antique Dealer in Suffolk

When speaking to an antique dealer in Suffolk, you should be prepared to share your asking price during the initial talk. It may seem like a bit of a stressful experience, but it is really not and it’s the common practice, so don’t be afraid to state your price to the antique dealer in Suffolk as it will be the starting point of the whole negotiation process.
