Private Treaty Sales

Sales by private treaty follow a similar course to our Tender Sales save that the timing, and of course the price, will be negotiated and agreed upon by Marriott & Co.’s staff and the purchaser.

The advantage of private treaty sales is that they are flexible, and allow negotiations with interested parties – often without publicly marketing the goods in question – with a view to completing a sale economically and expediently.

A private treaty sale will normally be concluded subject to our Conditions of Sale, adapted to accommodate the circumstances of the case. A recent completed Private Treaty sale was for a glass toughening machine.
