Toy Auctions

Find out the Value

Before going ahead for vintage toy auctions, find out what the value of the toy is. Some knowledge about the condition can be useful when you are researching its value.  Finding out about the value of the similar item can help you well.

Clean the Well

Once you have decided to say goodbye to the prized possessions, you need to pack them up. But before that, you need to clean them thoroughly. They will be fine and presentable in a sealed box; however, the box may look neat and presentable too.

For those toys that are more used, you need to get the toothbrush, a clean paint-brush, and other tools. Some water may be required alongside to clean them up properly. The missing stickers on the toys will leave a residue so you need a suitable solution which would not damage the surface of the toy. When you are done, you need to leave them overnight for drying.

Look For Spares Online

If the toys need some overhauling, be prepared for the same. Missing sticker and parts can be checked online. Missing accessories can be found online as well.  Incomplete toys will not be able to fetch good value in the online toy auctions.

Take Clear Images

Your existing smartphone won’t be good for this. Make use of DSLRs or mirrorless cameras. If you have these, use them to fullest.

If there is significant damage, you need to make sure that you are taking good photos of the affected area as well.  Give the buyer all the information they need so that they don’t get any excuse to back-out.

When you are taking photographs, make sure that it looks best and is boxed. The images should be in uniform lighting and white background before going for antique toy auctions.

Train Auctions

Toy trains can also be sold in model train auctions. But, before you can sell them, you need to make them ready for sales. If the model train set is incomplete, get the missing accessories. Then clean it and take clear images and put a suitable price before going for online model train auctions.
