Sandafayre are an excellent philatelic auction house with many superb examples of stamps up for sale and I look forward to the sales also for the knowledge that they impart. But that's not all! They are totally professional in the post auction handling of wins and offer a delivery service also (which is tremendous bonus as you don't have to organise a courier/go and collect yourself. It is very reasonably priced. From start to finish the customer service is excellent. A top class seller.

As an absolute novice to the World of Stamp Collecting, we found ourselves having to seek advice on a life times collection of stamps. We were guided towards Sandafayre. How glad we were to receive such helpful, knowledgeable, professional and fair advice from Vincent and all his team. We were kept well informed of progress both by phone and email and nothing was too much trouble for the team . The final payment was made so quickly. We could not fault the excellent service we received and have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending them to you.

I was really pleased and impressed with the service I received at Sandafayre when I was looking to sell my late Dad's personal stamp collection made up of British, Polish and Chinese stamps from many decades. They were professional, fair and well informed with their valuation and I decided to use them to take the stamps to auction where I received a very good price. I had previously received quotes from private stamp collectors and the amount received from auction exceeded these. The service was friendly and they did not push me at all. Special thanks to Karl. Overall I was very impressed and would highly recommend.

I have had two transactions with Sandafayre recently and both have been most enjoyable experiences. They were handled promptly and professionally, while maintaining a friendly and courteous manner. Conversations with Vincent about the collections I was selling were both interesting and informative. He has a wealth of experience and is a thoroughly nice man.
