Bidder Registration

In order to bid you will be required to provide proof of identification, proof of address and source of funds before being authorised to bid.

We will also take a hold on funds from your debit or credit card of £5,000 before you can bid.

Please see our Online Bidding and Registration Guide for further information, but note that as soon as you enter your debit or credit card details, the hold on funds will be taken and this amount will be "reserved" from your card for this potential transaction. The amount will be deducted from the balance of your bank account.

We recommend you enter your debit or credit card from 7 days before the auction date, to avoid the £5,000 payment being processed and the funds being "reserved" and held by our Sagepay provider unnecessarily.

It is the cardholder's responsibility to ensure that they have adequate funds in their bank account so that the initial hold on funds can be taken and reserved by our Company so that this does not impact on their immediate banking responsibilities. We will not be held responsible for any financial penalties that may arise once a hold on funds has taken place. Please contact the auction team for further information if required.

Registration for bidding will close at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, 5 June 2018, after which we cannot guarantee giving you permission to bid at the auction.
