BUYING AND SELLING


BUYING

We hold auctions at regular intervals through the year to suit most collectors and buyers needs and also to provide many private individuals with the opportunity to buy affordable  items for their home.

Any customer wishing to bid at one of our auctions will be required to register to bid on sale day, this can be done by submitting a registration form at the auction or by registering for a free account HERE before the auction starts. We require your full name, address and telephone number. If you are at the auction you will be then given a number with which to bid. When an item is sold and you wish to bid, please raise your paddle/number clearly so the auctioneer can see and he will acknowledge your bid.

DELIVERY

We offer a delivery service on the vast majority of lots being sold in our sales at very competitive rate. We have a fully trained warehouse and logistics staff at our disposal and can cover most of the UK. If enquiring about a delivery service please call us and quote the lot numbers concerned and the delivery post code. By all means discuss any lots and delivery charges with us on the day of the auction but understand that sale days are particularly busy so it is better to speak to us before the sale starts.

Commission Bidding

If you are unable to attend an auction, you can leave a commission bid. This will be executed by the auctioneer on your behalf and is a free service. He will purchase the lot as cheaply as possible, subject to other bids and reserves.

SELLING

Selling is very straightforward. Initially we suggest calling us on 01793 744316 and have a chat about what sort of items you wish to sell. We can discuss the best time and day to bring the items along or if large items we may suggest emailing us photographs of the items.
