Absentee or Commission Bids
If you are unable to attend an auction in person, you can register an ‘Absentee’ or ‘Proxy’ bid by completing a bidding form. The Auctioneer will bid on your behalf and will endeavour to secure the item for you at the lowest possible price, not exceeding your maximum bid. There is no additional charge for this service though please note the standard Buyer’s Premium (19% plus VAT) is still chargeable on the final hammer price. You can telephone us to complete the Proxy bidding form or email your bid to us, however, proxy bids but must be received by 5pm the evening before the auction to be certain of inclusion. If you are bidding from outside the UK you will need to email us proof of identity.
