Auction and viewing dates and times can be found on the catalogue pages of our website.
We always recommend buyers attend our public viewing in person to evaluate the condition of the lots prior to bidding, but if you are unable to attend we can provide a condition report - please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01751 431 544 in good time before the sale.
Live online bidding for our auctions is available through easyliveauction.com and the-saleroom.com. This extends our reach well beyond the walls of our auction house, with registered users able to bid worldwide at the click of a mouse. These platforms also offer an absentee/autobid service.
Tips for online bidding:
- Register with the platform you want to use in advance of the sale
- Favourite the lots you want to bid on
- Do not wait to hear the auctioneer as there is sometimes an audio delay, follow the bidding onscreen
- Do not wait until the last second to bid as the hammer may go down before your bid is received
Please note there are additional fees to pay to use these services as detailed on their websites.
Absentee bids can be left by calling our office on 01751 431 544
The traditional way! Now restrictions have been lifted we are no longer limiting the numbers of bidders in the saleroom on auction day. Please see the auction catalogue pages of our website for dates and times.
