Our Buying Process
Once we have identified what you are looking to sell, we’ll take you through our simple and straightforward selling process:
Booking a Valuation
Sellers will contact us to discuss the pieces they want to sell, and book a date and time that works best for them for valuation. A price estimate may also be given, which will be confirmed upon meeting.
Accepting an Offer
All offers made to sellers are no-obligation. We’ll also be glad to explain our reasoning behind the selling price quoted.
Receiving the Payment
We make payments instantly, via BACS transfer or through another method of the seller’s choosing. We will not leave with the sold item until the money is in the seller’s account.
Now that you understand the way the buying process works you can contact us to book your valuation.
Branded and Vintage Pieces
We pride ourselves on a vast network of UK-based and international buyers and collectors of antiques. Whether you have antique furniture, books, or fine art to sell, there is a chance that we may already know someone interested in purchasing it. This is especially true if the items you have are branded, by a famous name or maker, or are first editions in the case of books.
We often buy and sell antique jewellery and watches from prestigious makers around the world. This includes household names such as Tiffany & Co, Cartier, or Boucheron, and watches from names such as Rolex, Patek Phillipe, and Audemars Piquet.

How Much Will You Get?
We cannot give an estimate on any one item before we know what item needs to be valued. However, there are a few key factors which influence the selling price of most antiques:
- The age of the item in question
- Proof of a famous or well-known maker
- The condition of the item (broken or damaged pieces are likely to be worth less, though some items may still be valuable with slight scuffs or scratches from wear)
- Current design or style trends in various subsections of the antique market (Rococo furniture, for example, may be desirable to some furniture collectors while Art Deco-style jewellery is generally popular with jewellery buyers)
- Trends in the market of precious metals such as gold (in cases of jewellery)
- Trends in the market value of precious stones, such as diamonds (in cases of jewellery)
- Other materials used in the piece’s creation (in cases of furniture and sculptures)
We can guarantee that you will always receive a better rate than what you’d find at an auction – and there’s no risk that you won’t get the price you’re looking for, as you’re under no obligation to accept our generous valuation.
Why Choose Us?
We have over 20 years’ experience working as buyers and sellers of antiques. The work we do, not just in Manchester but across the UK, has even resulted in a list of fantastic reviews:
“I had a great experience with Burlingtons. Daniel radiates enthusiasm and integrity, and everything he said about the items I showed him confirmed previous valuations by auction houses. It was a relief to then be able to sell a mixture of different kinds of valuables – a painting, silver, jewellery, furniture – to him then and there without all the extra time and expense of taking the items to auction separately.” – March 2023.
