Terms & Conditions

WELCOME TO OUR APRIL / MAY 2021 TELEPHONE AUCTION

All lots are divided into small bidding blocks finishing on deadline dates and times via two landline telephone numbers 01949 21105 and 01949 21106.

BIDDING INSTRUCTIONS

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY SO THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE CORRECT PROCEDURE.

As soon as you receive your catalogue or its appearance online bids can be made by telephone, post and email.

DEADLINES for POST and EMAIL bids will be 12.00 noon on the respective auction day.

If you are NOT on our database you MUST register with us with your full contact details no later than 12 noon on any respective auction day before placing any bid(s).

Each bidding block will conclude via TELEPHONE BIDDING ONLY up to each deadline time.

Please ensure you ring the CORRECT telephone number for each lot that you are bidding on, particularly approaching deadline times.

During deadline times do NOT enquire about lots in any other blocks.

General enquiries regarding any lot must be made ONLY between 9.00am and 12.00noon.

Our watches will be set every day to ensure as much accuracy as possible.

Experience tells us that deadline times can be very busy therefore any bidder can place “up to” commission bids with us and these will be held in the strictest confidence and will not be revealed unless a counter bidder exceeds your top amount. The successful bidder will pay one unit above the underbidder and NO MORE.

A Buyer’s premium of 18% (inclusive of V.A.T.) will be added to the ‘hammer price’.

BIDDING INCREMENTS

£10 to £100 = £5

£100 to £300 = £10

£300 to £1000 = £20

£1000 to £2000 = £50
