How to bid on items in the auction.

How do I bid?
If you are attending the auction and may be looking to bid on any item(s) you must register at the desk before the sale begins. You will need to provide us with contact details and we will give you a bidding paddle with a number on it. You need to be sure the auctioneer has written this number down if you are a successful bidder.

How do I make an absentee bid?
You can use the bidding form on this site, but please contact us if you do not receive an acknowledgement via email that we have received your bid. You can also fax your bid to us on 0113 2779750, or from the USA 0144113 2779750. Or you can email bids to, again please get in touch if an emailed bid is not acknowledged.

What methods of payment can I use?
We accept cash, credit card (subject to a 3% administration charge) and personal cheques (drawn on a UK bank, with bankers guarantee cards within the limit.) Please see Buyers Notes for more details. Also please note that a buyer’s premium of 10% of the hammer price is payable by the buyer’s of all lots, together with VAT on such premium.

IMPORTANT! Please read the Notes for Buyers.
