BIDDING AND PURCHASING ITEMS AT A MORGAN EVANS AUCTION

 

REGISTER
If you are a new customer to our saleroom and plan to bid on an item in person, you will need to leave your details at the office (at the opposite end to the rostrum) within the saleroom, you will then be issued with a bidding number.

If you have found our auction on-line and you would like to bid on an item, please email saleroom@morganevans.com with your full contact details, including postcode, primary and secondary contact telephone numbers. We also require some form of ID. This can be in the form of a recent utility bill (showing your name and address), a photo driving licence or a passport. Once we have confirmed receipt of your ID you will not be asked to provide it in future.

BIDDING
We offer three ways to bid on items:

In Person – when a customer attends the saleroom to bid on a lot.

Commission/Absentee Bid – this is when you are not able to attend the auction in person. The Auctioneer will bid on your behalf.
You will need to complete a Commission Bid Form, detailing your full contact details, the lot you would like to bid on and your maximum bid. (Please take into account the Buyers Premium of 16% plus VAT as the full payment amount).

You can download an Absentee Bid form by clicking here

If you are emailing your commission bid form, please be aware that sometimes emails can go astray and therefore if you do not receive confirmation that your bid has been received it will not have been placed for you.

Telephone Line – this is when a telephone line has been booked by a bidder. A member of staff will telephone the primary contact number a few minutes before the lot you wish to bid on comes up. They will then talk you through the bidding offering you an opportunity to bid on the lot.
Unfortunately, there are a limited number of telephone lines available for this facility. We only offer this facility for items likely to achieve in excess of £200

Live bid - is a facility which allows you to bid and listen to our Antique auction from the comfort of your home. We have teamed up with The Sale Room which cover various specialists and antique auctions across the UK.
The Sale Room are different to many other providers as they give you the option of paying 3% charge. For further information click on the following link www.the-saleroom.com

Please be aware that we do need to abide by the Artist Resale Rights. Click here to download a PDF for more information.

If you are successful with your commission or telephone bid, you will be contacted at the end of the auction to discuss payment, collection or postage and packing requirements.

PAYMENT & COLLECTION OF GOODS

PAYMENT - If you are the successful bidder of lot(s), payment is required on the day of sale.
Payment can be made by cash, cheque or debit card (Business Debit Cards will attract an additional 2% charge). We accept credit card payments, please be aware that there is an additional 2% fee for using this facility.

COLLECTION - We ask that items purchased, be removed from the Saleroom as soon as payment has been made.
We do not have our own transport, therefore we are not able to offer a delivery service of purchased goods. However, we do have the contact numbers of local carriers who are happy to provide you with a quotation for this type of work.

PACK AND POST - We offer a pack and post facility for bidders of smaller lots who are not able to collect their items. Please email saleroom@morganevans.com for further information.
