    FAQs

    Lawsons employs multiple specialists and we aim to respond to all valuation requests within 48 hours.

    Lawsons operate on a consignment basis rather than purchasing items. This means that the items in our auctions are still owned by the seller until they are sold. That way, if an item exceeds our expectation, the seller benefits.

    At Lawsons, we take pride in our commitment to being the auction house with the quickest payment processing. Sellers receive their payments within 10 business days following the conclusion of an auction.
