Please read our 'Important Information' prior to bidding:
We respectfully request that all payments for lots won must be made by 3pm on the Monday after the auction, if not paid by this time we will take payment from your registered payment card - Please note there is a £500 limit on credit cards
Buyers Premium at the rate of 19% + V.A.T. of the price realised for each lot (hammer price) will be charged (Example, hammer price £100: you will pay £122.80 all in).
If you register to bid online through our website there are no internet fees added or you can register via easyliveauction.com and pay a £3 flat fee for the entire auction with no further internet fees to pay, this is taken regardless of whether you bid and is taken directly from your registered payment card. There is also an option to pay a 3% surcharge plus VAT for this service (Example, hammer price £100: you will pay £126.40 all in).
Please note - the absence of "AF" from a lot description does not imply it is perfect (we do add “AF” if damage is obvious). All bidders are deemed to have satisfied themselves in this respect.
Militaria and associated items:
Notwithstanding any other published Terms & Conditions, however described, items in this category are sold as seen and prospective buyers must make their own assessments of authenticity, as sometimes these may be copies/replicas
If you have previously been blocked by another auctioneer you will not automatically be approved to bid, therefore please contact us no later than 6pm the day before the auction to discuss the possibility of your registration being approved
We do not accept telephone bids unless a lot has a minimum lower estimate of £500. Bidders have to be prepared to bid at least the lower estimate and a deposit is required from new buyers. Otherwise please leave a commission bid.
