We’ve recently updated our after-sale process for the Specialist auctions, here is an overview of what you need to know.
The after-sale list will be uploaded soon after the main auction ends. The Lots will be available to view online and we will also send an emailer so make sure you have signed up to our newsletter. The deadline to make offers will be the following Monday at 17:00 (UTC). And just for the Specialist auction coming up on 23rd October, the after-sale deadline will be Friday 25th at midday in order to beat the looming Brexit deadline (31st October).
A buyer’s fee of 20% is added to your offer and VAT may be applicable.
Bidders get the opportunity to place one after-sale bid per unsold Lot which must be your best and final offer (also known as a sealed bid). Usual shipping, Loss & Damage Liability & CITES fees when applicable will apply.
Tips for successful bidding
Really want to be the winner when the hammer comes down? Here’s what we recommend:
- Being the first to offer gives you an advantage, so submit your best and final offers quickly.
- We publish a recommended amount – if you can, match this. Offers less than 30% of the recommended amount will not be considered.
- Have a look at our DIAGRAM for bidding and offer details.
