Following a move, the renewal of your interior decoration or an inheritance, you wish to sell one or more goods, but you do not know how to go about it?
PARIS OUEST ENCHERES will take care of estimating your goods and putting them up for sale.

Auctions allow you to sell your goods at the best price by putting many potential buyers in competition.


The sale process starts with the estimation of your property by our auctioneers : Nathalie HENRIETTE and Marion SAUVANT.

In order to have your property appraised and estimated, we offer you different solutions:
- Free and confidential appraisal days are organized regularly. To know our next dates and to make an appointment, click on the following link " next days of expertise ".
- You can also come to our office, 83 rue Aristide Briand in Levallois-Perret (92300) in order to meet our experts and have your property valued immediately.
- It is also possible to proceed to a first estimate on line, by filling in the following form " online estimate page ".
- We can also come to your home to proceed to the estimation of several properties, for that you just have to contact us by phone at 01 89 54 74 00 or by mail in order to organize an appointment.


Once you have accepted our estimate, we commit ourselves to do everything possible to sell your property in the best possible way. You entrust us with your objects and together we sign a sale mandate indicating in detail: the different lots deposited, estimates, possible reserve price (price below which the lot will not be sold) and the selling expenses which will be deducted.

We then take care of making a description sheet as precise as possible as well as photographs. Thanks to our experience of the art market, we integrate your lots in the sale where we will obtain the best price: specialized or generalist sale, live or online.

All our catalogs are available online on our website and on Drouot's website.


The lots are displayed at the office for several days so that interested buyers can come and see them. Your property is auctioned in our auction room and we broadcast the sale on the internet via the Drouotlive platform in order to reach a maximum number of bidders.


The evening of the sale, we send you an email to announce the results. The payment will be made by bank transfer 3 to 4 weeks after the sale (subject to the buyer's payment).

If your property does not find a buyer, we can offer it for sale by mutual agreement or represent it in a later sale by lowering the estimate. You can also recover it.
