Frequently Asked Questions
How often are your sales?
Our sale is now over two days, Monday and Tuesday, and are spaced three weeks apart. Please see our Auction Calendar for more information.
I've never been to an auction before, what do I do?
We know that coming along to an auction for the first time can be a little daunting! We aim to offer a friendly welcome and will help you where we can. If you're interested in visiting one of our auctions, simply come along during the viewing times (found here) and have a look at what's on offer for the next sale - this is a good way to get a feel for the saleroom and offers plenty of time for you to browse at your leisure and talk with the staff if you have any queries.
If you're not sure you'd like to bid in the room on the day or you can't make it, you can leave commission bids with reception - these must be received by 10am on the morning of the sale. Any bids after that time we may not be able to execute on your behalf due to time constraints.
We look forward to seeing you!
Can I put anything into a sale?
Items will be entered into auction if deemed suitable by our valuers. In an instance where this is not possible, we will offer advice on alternative methods of sale or disposal.
Online bidding for our auctions is hosted by Easy Live Auctions.
When registering for the sale, it’s your choice whether to pay a one off flat fee of £3 to bid on any lots through-out the whole sale.
Does everyone have to register?
Anybody wishing to buy at auction must register at reception prior to the sale. Our auctions are open to the public and anyone is welcome to view without registering, however no bids will be accepted without a bidding paddle. Once you have registered with us once that number will be yours for every future sale.
When do I need to arrive?
Every sale has a viewing time before the sale both on the day and on previous viewing days. If you need to register to bid we advise you leave plenty of time to do so as it may be busy.
On sale days we open at 9am, and the sale starts at 10am sharp!
