HOW TO BUY AT AUCTION

A little advice if you are new to the world of auctions – how it all works. 

 

1. Browse the Catalogue

Go to Auction Calendar and browse the complete catalogue of antiques or collectables for sale. Or sign up for our newsletter and receive a printable copy the week before the auction at the side of the page.

2. View the Sale or Request Condition Reports

The week of the sale, come down to our friendly Carmarthen showrooms to view the lots you are interested in owning. All viewings are free and open to the public. At the moment due to covid 19 all viewings are by appointment only, please ring our office on 01267233456 to book. Our knowledgeable saleroom staff will happily advise you. Dates for viewing are here: www.peterfrancis.co.uk/auction-calendar

Not local to Carmarthen? Not to worry, if you can’t make it down here to view then the best thing to do is email us at enquiries@peterfrancis.co.uk and request a condition report and/or extra photos of the lots you are interested in. All lots are sold as seen so this is the best way to check they are not damaged.

3. Leave a Commission Bid or Register to bid Live Online

Before the auction you can leave commission bids via email, phone or on our website. Decide what you would like to pay and set your maximum bid. Consider that there is a 21% + VAT Buyers Premium on each lot. Our trustworthy auctioneers will bid for you up to this amount as if you were there and you can still watch it live at either  https://www.easyliveauction.com/auctioneers/peterfrancisauctioneers/  or www.the-saleroom.com/peterfrancis or  If you are bidding live at the auction you register at reception on the day. If you are bidding live online we recommend you register the day before at either https://www.easyliveauction.com/auctioneers/peterfrancisauctioneers/ or www.the-saleroom.com

 

4. Collect

After the sale you can settle your account and take your newly acquired items with you. Due to covid 19 collections are by appointment if you are collecting multiple lots or furniture. If is only a small amount of lots you can collect without an appointment 10-12 or 2-4 week days or 9.30-12 Saturday morning. Items must be collected within 5 working days, please contact us for a list of recommended couriers. We even offer a postage service for small and non-fragile items.

5. Enjoy!

Enjoy your new purchases and come back soon!
