Buying and selling

Online Bidding

We charge a 20% commission plus VAT.

Our auction is online with two different platforms, easyliveauction.com and the-saleroom.com 

By using our website you can view our full catalogue and bid online. This allows you to bid for lots from the comfort of your own home, whilst being able to watch the sale live through a video feed. In order to bid online, you will need to register as a bidder with ourselves by creating an account here or on either platform listed above. An additional 3% fee will be added to your invoice when bidding through our website.

Once your registration and payment details are complete you can enjoy bidding online from any device. If you win,  you can either pay using a bank transfer, using pay by link or over the phone using your card up to £200. You can also leave an advance bid (commission bid) before the auction starts. Just enter the maximum amount you’re willing to pay and the system will enter the next increment on your behalf.

In-Person

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we do not offer an in-person bidding option. 

Commission Bidding

You can leave a maximum commission bid with the office by email or over the phone. The auctioneer will then bid on your behalf from the rostrum, attempting to win the lot for you as cheaply as possible. It is important to remember that the maximum amount you leave does not include our buyer’s premium, which is added to the final hammer price.

Telephone Bidding

We are happy to take bids over the phone. Once this has been arranged a member of staff will contact you several lots before the lot of interest is offered and will process your bid during the auction with you. If you would like to request a telephone bid on any of our lots please contact the office providing your full contact details and intended method of payment. Acceptance of telephone bids is upon the condition of the office's approval and confirmation.
