Bidding at the Auction there are a number of options for you:
Leave a commission bid with us either over the phone or through our website.
If you are unable to attend the sale but wish to bid on a lot, we can do this on your behalf. You will need to fill out a commission bidding form, which is found on-line on this web site. You should complete the contact details, list the lot and the maximum price you wish to pay, excluding the buyer’s premium. You can then either e-mail us directly from the website or submit the bid by telephone. The bid will be carried out by us and is completely confidential. Successful buyers will be contacted by telephone or email or will receive a postal invoice after the sale. Please note that we will automatically register you with a paddle number which costs £1 for the year if you are successful.
Book a telephone line.
We can only offer a limited number of telephone bidding lines on sale day. This facility is available on lots where the bottom estimate is over £100.00. Requests for telephone bids must be made at least 24 hours prior to the sale and are allocated on a first come first served basis. We require two contact telephone numbers and full address details at time of registration to bid by telephone. Boldon Auction Galleries do not take any responsibility if they are unable to make contact with the bidder.
