"In these times of instant transactions and anonymous companies, Sandafayre's Internet presence remains a breath of fresh air for every philatelist, whether they be a newcomer or a seasoned specialist, and whether they want access to regular auctions, to private sales - or to efficient, transparent valuations and good advice.

By always putting the customer first, Sandafayre has successfully combined the best traditions of an established philatelic dealer with the best practices of today's Internet-based business.

But what makes these people different? Whether you are a buyer or a seller - or whether you're seeking a valuation you can trust - it's the straightforward, honest way in which Sandafayre communicates and does business: namely, people talking with people, and sharing their interest and knowledge."

"To sell my stamp collection was a very difficult decision to make.  I had been collecting stamps for 65 plus years and over that time had refined and concentrated it into a reasonable collection I could be proud of with a big investment in both time and money.  Over the years I had dealt with several stamp companies and when it came to selling it I wanted it to be dealt with by a group I could trust. This was important as I now live in Thailand and was dealing with a company in Britain.  I had found Sandafayre to be both reliable and friendly and very approachable in the past when I bought stamps from them.  They seemed to understand my anguish as I discussed selling and were very supportive and helpful every step of the way as I procrastinated and wavered over my decision.  All the advice they gave me regarding shipping and preparation was spot on and my concerns about the process were wonderfully dealt with.  They made the whole process much more bearable than I could have dared to hope for.  I am very grateful. "

Mr H, Thailand. 22nd January 2021

 

"I have bought several lots in recent sales and I am very impressed by the quality of lots, and even more impressed by the service that you and your staff provide."

Mr G, UK. 17th January 2021

 

"As an avid stamp collector all his life my husband has dealt with Sandafayre for many years, both buying and selling. Due to illness, he has recently been selling parts of his collection and Sandafayre have been amazing both with their expertise and advice. Vincent Green has shown particular kindness and support and I can only thank him for his sympathetic handling of the gradual sale of my husband’s beloved stamp collection. I cannot rate Sandafayre more highly and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone wishing to buy or sell stamps."

Mrs W, UK - 7th January 2021

 

"Really good experience. I was selling a collection which belonged to my late father and the estimates were pretty spot on. Everyone I spoke to at Sandafayre was really helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again."

Ms G, UK - 4th January 2021
