Here’s a breakdown of our buying fees at auction:

For payment on any successfully won items, we accept cash, Debit card, Visa and Mastercard, and PayPal (with a 5% admin charge).

Buyer’s Premium

Buyer’s Premium will be added to the hammer price of each lot that you successfully buy. This is currently 25% + VAT.

Other charges

Other charges (imposed by bidding platforms) you may incur at auction include:

Buying via 3rd party websites such as The Saleroom (4.9%) or EasyLive Auctions (£3 or 3%) can incur additional charges for using their services. Please contact each website directly for this information.

Paying with Paypal will add an extra 5% to your total.

Free Online Bidding

We offer our own free (no internet surcharge fee) online bidding platform where you can bid live on all our auctions- you can register here.

Reduced Premium for In-Person Bidding

If you visit any of our salerooms to bid in person AND collect your winning lots on the day, you will benefit from a reduced buyer’s premium of 20% + VAT.

Don’t forget we offer an in-house packing and posting service and will be happy to give you a quote for your shipping needs if needed. Head to our postage service page for more information, or contact us on 01782 638100 to discuss your postage requirements.
