Bidding & Buying At Auction

Craxton Wood Sales

  • If you are attending the auction in person, please obtain a bidding number from the Registration Desk by filling in a Registration Form with your name and address.
  • Bidding for lots is by clearly raising your bidding number or Catalogue so that the Auctioneer can see your bid. If you are the winning bidder you will need to show the Auctioneer your bidding number. You do not need to give your name.
  • To pay for your purchases give your bidding number to the Cashier, who will verify your purchase(s). Lots can be paid for and collected at any time during the sale.
  • ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF PAYMENT FOR GOODS BOUGHT AT AUCTION
    CASH, B.A.C.S., DEBIT CARDS AND CHEQUES (by prior arrangement)
    WE NO LONGER ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS OR BUSINESS DEBIT CARDS due to excess charges
  • CHEQUES
    Purchasers wishing to pay by cheque must produce a bank reference to the Auctioneers before the sale.
    PLEASE NOTE: Cheques which are post-dated or written by a third party will not be accepted.
    We reserve the right to hold goods until a cheque is cleared if the above conditions are not met.
  • BUYERS PREMIUM IS 14% ON HAMMER PRICE
  • WE EXPECT TO SELL APPROXIMATELY 100 LOTS PER HOUR.
  • ABSENTEE COMMISSION BIDDERS.
    Commission bid forms are available from the Auctioneers, or can be found in our catalogues and on our website. Absentee bids may also be left by phone or by e-mail to enquiries@uktoyauctions.com Our staff will execute bids on behalf of absentee buyers unable to attend the sale at no charge. We undertake to purchase lots as cheaply as allowed by other bids and reserves.
    Any commission bids received with odd figures will be rounded up to the next increment. For example, a bid for £56 would be rounded up to £60, or a bid for £222 would be rounded up to £240. Please see our bid increment table.
