We encourage clients to use the registration form below to be able to place bids and receive emails for future auctions. If you are having problems with registering online, we will be able to manually register you during viewing and auction. Kindly note that on purchasing an item at auction a client may be asked to present ID card for verification.
The buying procedure at an auction is by bidding on the lots up for sale – this can be done by:
- live bidding at the actual auction by raising your hand or drawing the attention of the auctioneer.
- book bidding by filling in a Bid Form with the highest bid you are interested in placing on the lot.
- phone bidding is done by client expressing interest in a lot prior to day of auction. We will then proceed to contact you moments before the lot goes under the hammer.
Please be advised that bidding increments are decided by the auctioneer. The highest bidder wins the lot and will be asked to leave a 10% deposit on the Hammer Price on the day of auction. We highly recommend that you check the value on the catalogue to get an indication of the required deposit. Deposits maybe done through cash or bank transfer. Clients with winning bids on lots will have an indicated time till when they should collect the lot. The collection period is written in the Conditions of Sales within the catalogue.
Clients are required to pay the hammer price plus an additional 5% commission on the hammer price. An additional 18% tax will be charged on the 5% commission. To make things more clear the client will need to pay the hammer price plus 5.9%.
