Yes. Fees vary slightly depending on how you made your bid. If you made your bid over the phone, or came into the auction house, then the only fee you have to consider is the 19% buyers premium, plus VAT.
VAT is payable on the buyers premium not on the the actual item purchased, unless clearly stated.
If you made your bid online via EasyLiveAuction then you will have been informed of the additional fees before placing your bid. These are:
3% on top of the buyers premium (only if you selected “free registration”) or a flat £3 fee (you will not be charged the 3%). Which option you choose is up to you. If you plan on bidding for larger, more expensive items, it can sometimes be better to pay the £3. For small items, its much cheaper to register for free and pay the 3% extra on top of the buyers premium.
If you made your bid online via TheSaleRoom.com you will be subject to a fee of 4.95% + VAT.
You can leave a commission bid with the auctioneers. You decide the maximum you wish to pay and we will bid on your behalf.
You can also bid over the telephone. Please note lines are limited so please book in advance.
However, we do feel that the best way to bid is to view the sale live as it happens and bid in real time.
