When you arrive, just report to the cash desk and register your details to collect your bidding number. There is a £5 fee for each bidding number. The auction will take place at:

ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 11PM ON THURSDAY 24TH.
Our online auction system is a fantastic way to bid remotely. Not only can you view the cars live as they come through the hall, you can also hear our auctioneers as they take bidding.
ALL TELEPHONE BIDS AND DEPOSITS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 11PM ON THURSDAY 24TH
Telephone bidding is a great way to bid by proxy during the auction. We will call you several lots before the one you want to bid on, then we will talk you through the auction, updating you on the current bid and bidding for you when you tell us to.
ALL COMMISSION BIDS AND DEPOSITS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 11PM ON THURSDAY 24TH
If you cannot attend the auction and are unable to bid remotely, you can leave a commission bid on a lot before the start of the auction. Just tell us the lot you want to bid on and the maximum amount you would like to bid. We will then bid for you during the auction, up until either you win the lot or we reach your maximum bid.
