TELEPHONE BIDDING

ALL TELEPHONE BIDS AND DEPOSITS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 9AM ON FRIDAY 29TH.
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. Phone bidding costs £10.00 and we require a deposit of 10% of the lower estimate, minimum of £500 per car. This will need to be paid with a debit card and your bid will not be valid until we have received your deposit(s)  which is fully refundable should your bid not be successful. To register for phone bidding you will need to fill out a “Classic Car Telephone and Commission Bidding Form“. Once you have completed the form you will need to post, fax or email it back to us then we will contact you regarding your deposit.
 

COMMISSION BIDDING

ALL COMMISSION BIDS AND DEPOSITS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 9AM ON FRIDAY 29TH.
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. Commission bidding requires a deposit of 10% of the lower estimate, minimum of £500 per car. This will need to be paid with a debit card and your bid will not be valid until we have received your deposit(s)  which is fully refundable should your bid not be successful. To register for commission bidding you will need to fill out a “Classic Car Telephone and Commission Bidding Form“. Once you have completed the form you will need to post, fax or email it back to us then we will contact you regarding your deposit.
