Terms and conditions, viewing times, session times and further info
One you have registered and been approved by the Auction house you will be bound by these terms and conditions.
The highest bidder shall be the successful purchaser.
Should your live bid match that of an absentee bid, the bid will automatically be awarded to the absentee bidder being the first in time to have placed a bid. You will be prompted by the system to make a counter bid.
Payment is to be made by EFT, as we do not have credit card facilities.
Payment must be affected in full within 72 hours of receiving your auction invoice via email.
Invoicing will be sent out to all successful bidders on Monday after the close of sale. We will be open for collection of goods from Tuesday.
The onus is on the bidder to make themselves aware of the condition of all lots they are bidding on, as all goods are sold on a ‘voetstoets’ basis, and are therefore non-refundable on any grounds pertaining to the condition of the lot as at the date of sale.
Certain lots described in the catalogue may note some damage, however, the absence of such information does not imply that a lot is in ‘mint condition.’ The onus is on buyers to request condition reports prior to the auction.
The buyer will be responsible for collection and all costs involved. The purchase price is the hammer price achieved at auction for a given lot, in addition to which a buyer’s premium of 15% is added, along with a VAT amount of 15% of the buyer’s premium.
Lots may be subject to a reserve amount, under which no bid will be accepted notwithstanding the seller’s consent to such a sale. The reserve amount is confidential and shall not be divulged to the purchaser. If the highest bid on the day is under the reserve price on a said lot, the lot will be passed.
Goods and any other costs must be paid for in full before they will be released.
