Option 1: In the salesroom
You can join us live in the auction sale room on sale day, this is of course dependent on COVID-19 restrictions. If you haven’t already, we will ask you to fill out a ‘register to bid’ form, containing your basic contact details and providing us with a form of ID. In exchange, you will receive a ‘paddle’ – this is what you will use to place your bids.
Option 2: Absentee or commission bid
Don’t fret if you can’t join us on the day, as you can place an absentee or commission bid by filling out a form with the maximum bid you want to place on an item. We will bid up to that amount for you – making sure we try and get it as cheaply as possible!
Option 3: Telephone bid
During the auction, we are able to have you on the other end of the phone and you can place your bid with us live.
Option 4: Online
Recently this has become our most used form of bidding due to COVID-19 restrictions. Online auctions will operate through this site, powered by Go Auction, an online service in which you can follow the auction live from the comfort of your own home – or if you prefer leave bids in advance of the sale.
This is dependent on how you are bidding. If it is in-person at the saleroom, you can pay by debit or credit card and take your items straight away. Please note we no longer accept cash or cheques. If you are bidding online, or via phone/commission bids, you will receive an invoice from us within 24 hours. Invoices can be paid by bank transfer or by logging into your account and paying securely on this site.
Collections are by appointment only. You can book using our online calendar (link). You must wear a mask to your appointment and bring your own pen in accordance with current government guidelines.
You can find a full list of our postage charges here. All items will be packed and shipped within 2/3 weeks of the invoice payment being received
Bidding live in the room, commission, telephone bids or online via our own website is 25% (inc. VAT).
