BID IN THE HALL

To bid in our hall all you need to do is to come to our auction premises on the day of the auction and register when you arrive. (There is no need to register in advance.) 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.

 

LIVEBID ONLINE BIDDING

ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 9AM ON THE DAY OF THE AUCTION. Our online auction system has been up and running for three years now and 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. To register for online bidding click here

 

TELEPHONE BIDDING

ALL TELEPHONE BIDS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 9AM ON THE DAY OF THE AUCTION. 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 MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 9AM ON THE DAY OF THE AUCTION. 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.
