Please note items can not be offered for sale on this forum.
I have contacted a number of the major online whisky retailers who buy rare and limited edition bottles and some have expressed an interest in come of my collection.
I'd be grateful for any advice on what mark up they seek to achieve and thus what a fair asking price is. For example, I have 5 bottles of a limited edition that is listed as out of stock on many sites at £200. What would be a fair price for me to ask for/for them to offer? I have seen it at auction for c£130 (but obviously I'd get 10-20% less).
Also how does the mark up vary with price? Do retailers seek to achieve a similar mark up on a £50 bottle as a £500 bottle.
Any thoughts much appreciated.
your best bet is see what they offer and make your own mind up
theres no right or wrong
the choice is yours

I don't think you'll get many numbers and %. For those who collect and occasionally sell, and also speculators after quick cash, none will consider selling to a retailer as they'd be the worst buyers out there. The best option now is to sell through an auction house.
If you're determined then just note down the quote and compare offers for each bottle. If you're happy then accept.
Then you can let us know.
Possibly get more at auction but then you're taking a chance.
