How to bid

Attend the auction at 64 Knightsbridge.

  • First time bidders will need to register prior to the auction or on the day. We will need to take a copy of a driver’s licence or passport. In return you will receive a paddle with your bidding number which you will need to display to the auctioneer when you win an item. The paddle must then be returned back to the vault at the end of the auction to process the invoice.

Bid live online through the-saleroom.com.

  • This website will allow you to register and then bid live during the auction. This is a great and easy way to bid from anywhere in the world with live video and audio.

Call us to arrange bidding over the telephone or to leave absentee bids.

  • If you have not registered with us before and would like to telephone bid, then we will need an email with the relevant lot number(s), your name, address and a scanned copy of ID. This is the same process for absentee bids but you will need to add your maximium bid for each lot excluding buyer's premium and we will be on your behalf.

Payment

Every sale will be subject to a buyer’s premium of 18%+VAT (21.6% inclusive).

  • Bidding online will hold an additional charge of 3.6% (including VAT).
  • The VAT can be excluded or refunded for successful bidders registered from outside of the EC.

Streamline debit and credit card processing (chip & pin).

  • This can be done at our premises post-auction. There is no additional charge for purchases made with debit cards unless drawn on an overseas bank or deferred debit cards which will be subject to a 2% surcharge.
    Please note there is also a 2% surcharge when payments are made using VISA & MasterCard credit cards and 1.9% with American Express cards. It may be advisable to notify your card provider of your intended purchase in advance to reduce delays caused by us having to seek authority when you come to pay.

Online through our website & SagePay.

  • Successful bidders will receive an email with login details to our website allowing you to view and settle invoices online through our secure payment gateway. Some card charges will apply and are as stated above.
