How do I buy?

Buying from our auctions is easy.

Prior to each auction, we publish an online catalogue – which you can access via our Auction page.

If you see items there you would like to buy, you can:


Register with our online bidding partner the saleroom at www.the-saleroom.com


If you would like to bid in person (the most exciting way to bid!), you can visit our office at the Skirsgill Saleroom to register your details and obtain a unique bidding number, which you’ll show the auctioneer if you are the successful bidder.

We accept all forms of payment, including debit and credit cards, cash, cheques and bank transfers.  Please note we do not accept American Express cards. For security reasons, we do not accept payments over the phone for more than £500 in the UK, £100 internationally. Payment in full, cleared funds is required before goods are permitted to be removed from the premises.
