We have members of staff that can bid on your behalf.
Pre-bids can be made by email, telephone, or at the desk where we have simple pre-bid/commission forms to tell us the maximum amount that you are prepared to spend on each Lot.
Bids can be emailed to; email@example.com
Your email must contain your full name, address & telephone number.
If you do wish to bid please ensure that we receive the bids no later than 12.00 (noon) on the day of the auction to allow us the administrative time to process the bids before the Auction starts.
It is also possible to watch & bid on the auction live at the-saleroom.com
Commission bids are the maximum amount up to which the auctioneer may bid on your behalf (exclusive of Buyer’s premium and VAT). They will be executed at the lowest possible price, having regard to any reserve and competing bids. If Buyers submit identical commission bids, the Auctioneers will give preference to the first bid received. Commission bids may be left in person, by telephone, or by email. All bids submitted are regarded as an acknowledgment that the bidder has read and accepts the terms and conditions of sale and will submit any specific personal details requested to verify their intention and ability to comply with those conditions. Southgate Auctions strongly advises viewing onsite in person or through an agent and stresses that any descriptions, condition reports, and images supplied to the absentee bidder are an opinion provided by this firm and do not guarantee the condition, age, or any other characteristics of the Lot in question. Execution of commission bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the Sale and we cannot accept liability in an individual instance for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with it, arising from circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
It is your responsibility to ascertain whether you have been successful and to pay for & collect Lots purchased by 5.00pm Tuesday following the Sale.
