In this way it is possible to bid without being present at the auction. By filling in a bidding commission, you can let the auctioneer bid for you, up to the maximum amount that you have indicated on the bidding form. Of course he will try to buy the lot for the written bidder at the lowest possible price. You will not automatically pay the maximum amount that you have filled in! The day after the last auction session, we will inform you about your purchases. A written bidding formis found on this website. In case you want to bid this way, do not forget to sign the commission and fax it to our office.
A second option to bid “from your easy chair” is by telephone bidding. This works just like written bidding. You can fill in a bidding form, requesting a telephone bidding. During the auction, you will be called up by one of our employees at the moment the concerned lot is up for auction. The employee will inform you during the bidding that is going on, and can bid on your behalf. Telephone bidding is only possible on articles with a guide price starting from € 150,-
For both written bidding and telephone bidding the following rules apply:
- The written purchase order is only accepted in case it is signed.
- Bidding over the telephone are possible when the object has a guide price of € 150,- or higher.
- For written bidding and telephone bidding on lots with a guide price of over €10.000,- a statement from your bank and a copy of a valid identification document might be requested.
- Paymentsmust be made within three days of the purchase.
- The goods must be collected from the auction location no later than the day after the final auction session, before 11.00hr!
