Commission Bidding

Commission bids may be left with us up until 9am the morning of the sale, and we will undertake to buy on your behalf for the lowest possible price, taking into account any reserves and competing bidders.

Telephone Bidding

It is possible to bid via telephone on higher value lots, however due to limited telephone lines we issued these on a first come, first served basis. When reserving a telephone line, we always ask for a back-up bid which will only come into effect if we cannot reach you, or get disconnected and are unable to reconnect.
