Buying Guide

Items for sale will appear in our printed catalogue, our website and www.the-saleroom.com approximately 7 days before the auction. We can send you an email notification as soon as each new catalogue is available if you sign up for our catalogue notification alert.

We are normally open for viewing on the Saturday (10.00am – 1.00pm) Monday & Tuesday (9.30am – 5.00pm) preceding the Auction. During Covid we are unable to allow anyone in our saleroom but we are happy to provide detailed condition reports.

If you are interested in a lot but have not viewed it in person, you may find it useful to request further images and/or a condition report by sending a lot enquiry.

Our auctions are broadcast live on www.easyliveauction.com and www.the-saleroom.com We stream live video and audio on Easyliveauction and The-saleroom.

How to buy at Auction? You will need to register online with Easyliveauction prior to us taking any bids.

  • Bidding in Person – Please allow time to register to bid, you need to complete a short form and you will then be given a bidding number which you raise when you wish to bid for an item.
  • Absentee or Commission Bids – Complete a bidding slip and the Auctioneer will try to secure the item at the lowest price.
  • Online – Leave your commission bids online either through www.the-Saleroom.com – (4.95% surcharge) or www.easyliveauction.com – (3% or £3.00 surcharge).
  • Telephone Bidding – Call us to arrange a telephone bid and we will call you in plenty of time to help you bid.  We normally only offer telephone bids on items over £100 and they are on a first come first serve basis.  You must be prepared to bid the lower estimate if we book you a telephone bid.
