How to buy at auction
Buying at auction can be an exciting adrenaline fuelled bargain hunters dream. The thrill of will I – won’t I be successful and then seeing some items fetching thousands, amounts to an enjoyable experience that can be enjoyed by all.
To attend one of our Essex auctions it is advisable to first come to the viewing day to get yourself fully acquainted with the items you wish to buy. Check measurements / satisfy yourself to authenticity etc etc. Advice & help is always on hand – just ask!!!
Stage One - On sale day arrive early and get a paddle number from reception, first timers will be asked to register.
Stage Two - Find yourself a place in the room where the auctioneer can clearly see you
Stage Three - When your lot arrives raise your paddle to allow us to know you are bidding
Stage Four - If successful announce your paddle number
Stage Five – Pay at reception and collect your items. Simple!! We do offer a delivery service and it is advisable to get a quote on viewing day so that you can factor this into the cost.
Don’t forget the 17.5/20% + VAT commission to be added onto the hammer price.
