Once you have found an auction you are interested in on our site, you will need to login or register your details with us in order to view the auctioneer's contact details and link through to their website.
You will need to register your details with the auctioneer or bidding platform before joining an auction and placing bids. This process will vary for different auctioneers but will usually involve submitting your credit card details or some other form of ID. Make sure you complete the registration process in good time before bidding commences.
Each auctioneer will have their own terms and conditions for bidding which you should read carefully and they have additional terms and conditions for each auction. Pay particular attention to additional charges applied on top of the hammer price eg Buyer's Premium and VAT.
Once you have been approved for bidding by the auctioneer, you are ready to join the auction, where you will confirm your details and agree to the terms and conditions.
In some cases you may have to make a deposit prior to bidding, which is deducted from the outstanding balance at the end of the auction or refunded if you do not make a successful bid.
