Buying and Selling

Buyers Advice


Items can be viewed between 2pm and 5pm on each Saturday before the Monday auction.


Buying is informal and easy - you do not need to register at our auction if paying by cash on the day of sale.

If you'd like to leave a bid, contact details will be taken and there will be an admin. fee of £3. This is a flat rate, whether one or multiple bids are left.


If there is something that you would like to bid for, just raise your arm to get the attention of the auctioneer. If you haven't bid before and feeling a little hesitant, just come along and see how it's done, you will be made very welcome! If you are successful in the bidding process, payment is required on the day of sale.

If paying by cash the money is taken at the time of the successful bid. If paying by bank card, the transaction is carried out in our office. There is no surcharge for using either Debit or Credit Cards.

There are no VAT charges, but for all purchased goods there is a buyer's premium to pay of £1 per item.

If you wish to leave a remote bid as you cannot attend the auction, this can be done through the office on the day of viewing. Remote bidding cannot be done whilst the auction is in progress.

Removal of items must be done on the day of sale, or collected on Tuesday between 10am & 1pm - please speak to us if there is a problem with this and we can make other arrangements.

Sellers Advice

Entering Items

We are open to receive items between 9am - 5pm on Friday and 9am - 2pm on Saturday each week. All welcome.

Charges to Sellers

There is a 40p charge per lot if it is sold. A lot can be a number of items, so if you're selling - for instance - a box containing a number of different things as a single lot, then the charge will be a flat-rate 40p for the box.

If an item remains unsold there is no charge. We would respectfully ask though, that these items are removed within two weeks of the auction date, unles otherwise agreed with the Auctioneer, as storage charges will be incurred after this time.

Payment to Sellers

Payment is made to sellers on the Friday, Saturday and the next Monday after the previous sale. We charge a 17.5%  commission, on all items.


If you want to sell items but not able to get them to us, we can arrange to collect them for you. Please contact us and we can discuss further, including any costs that may be involved.

House  Clearance

We are able to carry out house clearance. Please contact us and we can discuss further, including any costs that may be involved.
