This provides you with your individual bidder number for you to use for a full year. Ask at the office for a registration form. If you need help to fill this out, our staff will gladly help. We also provide catalogues at a cost of £1.
Bidding At The Auction
If your bid on any item is the winning bid (and the bidding has exceeded any reserve price placed on the item) then the sale is complete on the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. At that point the winning bidder becomes liable for payment plus commission. If you can’t make it to the sale we can do a book bid on your behalf. This consists of filliing out a bidding sheet given details of the items you wish to bid on. All you have to do is call up the next day to see if you have been successful. We currently charge 15% commission on all sales. Payment is done by cash or Chip and Pin. We do not charge VAT!
Delivery, Up-lifts & Clearings.
For a small additional fee, we can also deliver your items to you – particularly relevant in the case of bulky furniture, etc. Please ask at the office about fees (dependent on destination) and delivery times. On arrival with your items our trained and insured team will guarantee a quality of service. We are competitive and will not be beaten on price.
