Buying

Browsers and buyers are welcome at The Cotswold Auction Company's sales. Entry is free and any member of staff will be happy to help with queries.

VIEW DAY

This is the day preceding the sale - a good opportunity for you to examine the lots on offer. Detailed catalogues with estimates of value will be on sale. The catalogue can also be viewed on our website and pages printed as required.

DUE DILIGENCE

ALL CUSTOMERS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF OF IDENTITY WHEN REGISTERING

BIDDING

You need a bidding number - see the auction office at the saleroom. You will be given a card and the easiest way to make a bid is by waving this bidding number. If you are a novice bidder do not worry - the blink of an eye will not be taken as a bid! The auctioneer will always establish whether a bid is genuine before accepting it.

BUYING ONLINE

 Once you have registered online at  www.the-saleroom.com,  you can hear the auction as it occurs, view photographs of the lots and simply click to bid - all for an additional charge of 3% (of the hammer price)+ vat. Log on to www.the-saleroom.com to bid live on any of our sales advertised as 'live online bidding'.

COMMISSION

If you are unable to attend the sale you can leave a commission bid with the auctioneer who will bid on your behalf as if you were present in the room. Don't forget that there is a buyers premium of 20% (+VAT) on the hammer price (the price at which the lot is knocked down).
