Bidding: In-person bidding is now available once again at our auctions. Turn up, register at reception and away you go! You can also still bid online across one of the many platforms that host our sales. Telephone bids, commission bids are also possible. Please note - we have a strict mask-wearing policy in place to help protect other customers, and our staff. Please be considerate of this when visiting our saleroom.
Viewing; Viewing day is always the day before the sale. At present we are offering two types of viewing:
- TYPE A: BY APPOINTMENT - this is between the hours of 9am and 11am and can be booked in half-hour slots only. This is for those customers who may feel vulnerable / uncomfortable in a room of people. Online-only / Timed auctions are viewing by appointment only.
- TYPE B: STANDARD VIEWING - turn up with no appointment needed at any time between 11am-5pm. Mask wearing is requested, and hand sanitizer is available at all entrances / exits.
Please Note - whilst visiting us, our kitchen will remain closed to members of the public. It is recommended that customers bring their own refreshments where needed.
Storage; We politely request that all invoices are settled within 5 days of the auction. We are unable to store items for longer than this period. Any items outstanding after this period (where delivery, collection or postage has not been arranged) will be moved to offsite storage and charged at a rate of £5 per lot, per day. We are open for click and collect (see above) and our nationwide courier service is fully operational.
By signing up to bid - you are agreeing to the standard terms of sale as outlined, and are politely reminded that no guarantees of condition are given and all items remain sold 'as is' irrespective of any description, and no warranties or guarantees are offered on any item, in any sale. Ample opportunity to obtain condition reports, and to view items (both in-person and virtually), has been given.
