We are also interested in purchasing collections outright, if you would prefer.
Our typical rates on consignments are:
17% for Watches, Clocks, Jewelry and Coins valued over $5,000
20% for Watches, Clocks, Jewelry and Coins valued under $5,000
25% for Tools and Materials
STEP 1 – CONTACT US.

STEP 3 – MAKE SHIPPING ARRANGEMENTS. You can ship your property to us at your own expense, or we can arrange for a shipping label for you to place on your package, which will be deducted from your proceeds after property is auctioned. If you need assistance with packing and/or shipping your property to us, please contact us. If you would like to personally deliver your property to Jones & Horan, please make an appointment with us by telephone or email. We are located at 453 Mast Road, Goffstown, New Hampshire, USA, just 15 minutes from the Manchester International Airport in Manchester, New Hampshire, and about an hour from Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts.
Please note: If you are consigning goods from overseas, shipping charges, taxes and import duties are your responsibility. Some countries may apply import and export regulations for certain types of goods, such as watches containing batteries. It is your responsibility to ensure compliance with these regulations.
STEP 4 – JONES & HORAN GETS TO WORK. Once your property reaches Jones & Horan, our experts get right to work tagging your items into inventory, photographing, and cataloging each lot in detail with a full condition report. Our expert will determine how to best lot your items to achieve the greatest price possible, as well as deciding the best venue to ensure the strongest bidding.
STEP 5 – WATCH FOR YOUR PRE-SALE NOTIFICATION. You will be notified once your consignment is in auction that is visible for preview. In the case of a Live Auction, a catalog will be mailed to you with a list of your consignment approximately one month before the auction. For an Online Auction, an email will go out to you approximately four days before the auction opens for bidding with a list of your lots.
STEP 6 – ATTEND THE AUCTION. If your property is in a Live Auction, you are welcome to attend and view the auction excitement for yourself. You can also watch the auction online through our website. If your property is in an Online-only Auction, you may “attend” by watching the lots sell on the last day (30 seconds apart) through our website, or you can view the bidding progress any time during the week that auction is live for bidding.
STEP 7 – PRICES REALIZED. All prices realized will be available on our website after each auction closes, whether online-only or live.
STEP 8 – PAYMENT IS SENT. Payment will be mailed to you together with a settlement statement itemizing sales results, consignor fees and net owed. Checks are mailed 14 days after an online-only auction and 28 days after a live auction.
