If you have never bid at an auction before then have a read of our handy guide to buying at auction – you’ll soon catch the bug for it!
How do I get to the venue
The auctions are held in the very comfortable Hub area at The Village Hotel - Centennial Park, Centennial Ave, Elstree, Borehamwood WD6 3SB- there is ample free parking and plenty of places to get refreshments including a bar/restaurant and Starbucks on site. We also provide FREE tea/coffee and cold drinks for everyone attending.
How do I buy From the Auction?
There are several ways to buy items
1 Join us live in the auction sale room on sale day. You will be asked to register to bid (this involves filling in a form with your basic contact details and providing us with a form of ID such as Driving Licence) We will then give you a 'paddle'.
NB Don't worry you can't accidentally bid by scratching your nose!
We only accept a raised paddle as a bid.
2 If you can't be with us on sale day you can place an absentee or commission bid - this is where you fill in a form with the maximum bid you want to place on an item and we bid up to that amount for you. We try and get it as cheaply for you as possible and bid up to your maximum.
3 If you want more control over your absentee bidding and are bidding on items with an estimate of £50 or more then we will book a telephone bid for you. We phone you and have you on the end of the phone line during the bidding and you place your bid with us as your go between to the auctioneer.
4 If none of the above are an option due to distance or other commitments then you can bid online. We usually use two online bidding platforms the-saleroom.com and invaluable.com Both of these platforms allow you to follow the action online from the comfort of your home and bid using their software. Not quite as exciting as being in the saleroom but a very convenient way of buying at auction.
