WHAT TO LOOK FOR BEFORE PLACING YOUR BID 

Next to the current bid price on each lot you will see one of four icons, which provides information if hovered over (clicked when using a mobile device).   

Below is a summary of the information provided for each icon, that is relevant to you if you are a UK based buyer or are looking to have an order shipped to a UK address.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO BE AWARE OF POST AUCTION 

Shipping 

Orders could potentially be sent as multiple, separate shipments - for example, one from each of our office locations. If this is the case, you will receive a separate shipment notification for each shipment.  

Please be aware that shipments from our EU office will likely take longer to reach you than shipments sent from our UK office.

If shipping orders from multiple offices, those orders will each be charged individually.
