Buying

Auction and viewing dates and times can be found on the catalogue pages of our website. 

Condition Reports
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 info@ryedaleauctioneers.com or call 01751 431 544  in good time before the sale.

 

Online Bidding
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.


Commission Bids
Absentee bids can be left by calling our office on 01751 431 544
