When an item is brought to us for a possible repair, our team does everything they can to make sure that your models are getting the best care possible. This means that sometimes we may need to keep your vehicles for a little while so that we can get a closer look and get to the root of the problem. For assessments like these we require a servicing fee of £20*, which will contribute to the full payment if any repairs can be made.

For more details regarding our pricing, check the ‘Pricing’ section below.

Valuation of private collections

There often comes a time for when your collection may need to find a new home. At Collectables R Us, we understand it can be hard to pass your beloved collection, and it’s even harder to know where to start. We offer valuations on collections, big or small, as well as some friendly advice on how to go about finding a new owner or few for your models. Pricing of valuations is listed below.

Valuations are to be done in person, as it is difficult to gauge the quality and condition of models and their boxes using pictures. Have your own collection you’re looking at selling? Contact us with your questions or to set up a time that’s right for you to pop by with your collectables.


As a small business we try our best to give you unique and excellent customer service as well as ensure outstanding quality of our products and projects. We are thankful for all of our customers who have supported us over the years and hope to continue our journey for many more.

More details

All of our services require a non-refundable payment of £24 (VAT included) as a form of assessment fee or deposit upfront. Should you choose to go ahead with a repair, renovation, or commission project after the initial assessment, this £24 charge will count as a deposit and will be deducted from the total cost of the services provided.

Our hourly rate counts towards many things we do during commission, repair , ad valuation process – our time, efforts, research, convenience, expertise, resources, and care towards your model.

Valuations are also charged at our standard £40/hour + VAT rate (for collection of more than 4 items) done in person only, with one of our team members. There are many factors we take in account for when we value your collections, and we take pride in trying our best to give your collection an accurate valuation. We kindly request that you contact us before bringing in any collections for valuation, as we have plenty of other jobs ongoing alongside each other and we would not want to keep you waiting longer than necessary.

Commission work is considered for most subjects such models or model kits of cars, boats, planes, and trains, and are subjected to a £40* per hour rate (not inclusive of any extra parts needed to order for the commission). We define commission work as the execution of work surrounding the personalization of your desired vehicle, such as re-spray; switching from left- to right-hand drive and vice versa; and much more.

We do not in any way imply that we are experts, specialists, or professionals in the above areas. Our team is comprised of talented model makers with decades of experience and knowledge on repairs, renovations, and commission work of all types with a high percentage of customer satisfaction.

Remote control repairs: we try our best where we can but unfortunately we may not always be able to solve your issue even after an assessment. Remote control repairs can be tricky especially with sourcing the right parts for you vehicle. Please enquire with us and keep in mind that the assessment fee is non-refundable.
