Buyer’s Premium of 24.75% plus VAT on the hammer price is payable on all purchased lots. (The VAT rate may alter and will be levied at the appropriate rate.) Any lots marked with an asterisk (*) will, in addition, be subject to VAT at the appropriate rate on the hammer price.
Payment for all purchased lots must be made by the Friday following the sale through bidding platform or by Bank Transfer. No payment can be taken at the Auction House at this time. After this period, the Auctioneers reserve the right to cancel any sale at their sole discretion or to re-offer lots for which payment has not been received in a future sale without reserve. In this latter event, the original bidder will be held liable for any shortfall between the selling price at re-offer, plus expenses, and the total amount due on their unpaid account.
Methods of payment accepted and conditions attached thereto are detailed in ’IMPORTANT NOTICE TO BIDDERS AND BUYERS’ below.
Lots may be cleared whilst the auction is in progress after payment in full.
Ownership of a purchased lot shall not pass to a buyer until full payment of the ’total amount due’ has been made to the Auctioneers.
Free storage of all purchased lots will be provided for three working days following the sale; thereafter a storage and handling charge of £5.00 plus VAT per lot per day will be levied upon the buyer, as will all carriage charges incurred by the Auctioneers in having goods removed to storage.
In reference to Condition 6, all purchased lots uncollected within three working days of the sale will be transferred to the storage facilities and will be subject to the charges outlined in Condition 6. No lots will be released until carriage and storage charges have been paid in full.
Bidders. By participating in this sale, the bidder agrees to be bound by Bamfords Auctioneers and Valuers Ltd Conditions of Business. Any buyer acting for any person who is not bidding shall be jointly and severally liable with that person for satisfaction of all arising obligations and liabilities, with the exception of the Auctioneers where they are acting on behalf of commission or other bidders.
Paddles. All intending bidders are required to register for a paddle bidding number with the Accounts Department prior to the auction. Bidders new to the salerooms will be required to complete a paddle registration form available at the Accounts Office and will be required to present proof of identity, proof of address and details of a valid debit or credit card in their name, which details may be retained on file by the Auctioneers and used to secure payment for purchased lots. The Auctioneer will not accept bids from a bidder in the room who has not registered for a paddle number. When a buyer is successful, the buyer will hold the paddle aloft and the Auctioneer will record the paddle number as the buyer of the lot.
Commission Bids. Any person unable to attend the auction may request the Auctioneer to bid on their behalf. This service is free of charge. Bidding forms will be available so that clients may complete these fully. These should be handed in at the Accounts Office. All commission bidders will be required to supply proof of identity, proof of address and/or details of a valid debit or credit card in their name, which details may be retained on file by the Auctioneers and used to secure payment for purchased lots. Commission bidders are urged to ascertain whether or not they have been successful on the day of the sale or on the Thursday following the sale. Lots will be purchased by the Auctioneer on behalf of the commission bidder for the lowest price allowed by other bids and/or reserves if any, up to and including their maximum bid amount recorded. ’Buy’ bids will not be accepted by the Auctioneers. The Auctioneers cannot accept responsibility for any neglect or default in executing or failing to execute commission bids, or where a bidding slip has been completed incorrectly. We urge commission bidders, therefore, to ensure that the correct lot number(s) and price(s) are recorded on their bidding forms.
Telephone Bids. Any person unable to attend the auction may request to bid on a specific lot by telephone. This facility is only available by prior arrangement with the Auctioneers, is dependent on the availability of telephone lines, and is only available on lots carrying a lower estimate of at least £300 (e.g. catalogue estimate £300-500). All telephone bidders will be required to supply proof of identity, proof of address and/or details of a valid debit or credit card in their name, which details may be retained on file by the Auctioneers and used to secure payment for purchased lots. The Auctioneers cannot accept responsibility for any neglect or default in executing or failing to execute telephone bids.
Condition Reports. Reports on the condition of any lot are offered by the Auctioneers as a statement of opinion only, and not of fact. Bamfords Auctioneers and Valuers Ltd. are not liable for any errors or omissions contained therein.
In the case of a dispute, the Auctioneers reserve the right to re-offer any lot.
The bidding increments will be at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer.
Responsibility for risk, loss or damage to any lot falls to the bidder upon the fall of the hammer or, if the lot is purchased privately, to the purchaser on the day when the contract is made. The Auctioneers are not liable for any loss or damage occurring to a lot during clearing. Buyers may accept assistance from Bamfords Auctioneers and Valuers Ltd. staff members during clearing, but any loss or damage occurring to lots will be at the buyers’ risk.
