Industry Guide Lines For Selling WW2 Helmets
Before you invite a “Helmet Dealer” or general militaria dealer into your home we recommend the following.
1) Check their credentials .Are they professionals, does their website display a VAT number (U.K.) or a Max Certified Dealer Badge (USA)?.Professional looking websites are now inexpensive to build, they can be operated from an iPhone from inside a prison (Fact), a Summer camp ,Bar, or by school Kids operating from Mum and Dads residential address!.
2) Always get an guide estimate of the likely range of prices they are prepared to pay you. This can be achieved by supplying phonographs first or offering a good description.
Do not risk putting your self in the uncomfortable position of being pressured.
3) You should be offered and accept no less than 75% of the market value for your collection or single items.
4) Cash is hard to come by don’t get tricked by a bully who pushes for an appointment to visit you immediately.
Before you have prepared exactly what will be going and what your bottom price is.
