If you haven’t bought or sold at auction before this is how it works…
If you have something you’re thinking of selling, the first step is to get in touch with us
by phone (01 989 566 388) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or simply call in during office hours (Wednesday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm).
We are happy to look at anything that you have to sell and advise you. Sometimes the advice is surprisingly
pleasant as regards the price you are likely to get and sometimes we have to disappoint you. But we do it gently.
Not everything old is valuable - an item is only worth what someone will pay for it -
so a family heirloom that has sentimental value might not be that highly priced.
On the other hand, in a box of mixed bric-a-brac there could be an item that is literally worth its weight in gold.
Don't throw anything out until you've had it looked at.
The first step is for you to come along to one of our viewing days - Friday, the day before the sale which is
always the second Saturday of the month - between midday and 7pm.
Just take your time and look around the saleroom. Make a note of anything you think you'd like to buy and mark it
in your catalogue if you need to. Think about a price that you'd be happy to pay and write that down too.
If you haven't already registered with us, you need to do so to get a bidder number. Without a number you won't
be able to make a bid and so won't be able to buy.
If you prefer, (or if you can't attend the auction in person) you can leave a commission bid for an item with us in
the office which fixes the maximum price you want to go to. This means you won't spend more than you intended
to. It really is that easy.
