Guide to Using Charles Taylor Auctioneers

Whether buying or selling, we're here to make the process as straightforward as possible.

Who can buy at Auction?

Anyone is welcome to attend our auctions. We ask that children under 16 are accompanied by an adult, and you must be over 18 to actually make a bid.

Can I view an item before Auction Day?

We believe that you need to know exactly what you’re going to bid on. For that reason, we are open the day before the auction, 1pm – 3pm, and from 9am - 12 noon on auction day.

No appointment necessary.

Is it difficult to buy goods at Auction?

We’re here to make buying at auction as simple as possible. If you intend to bid you will need to register (you will need to bring 2 forms of ID – a passport or photo driving licence and a utility bill. Bills must be dated within the last 6 months) and make a £200 cash deposit that is refundable if no purchases are made.

How do I pay for goods?

Cash or Bank Transfer is preferred. You can pay in cash, up to £5,000. Debit cards are also accepted.

How do I collect what I’ve bought?

You need to take your purchase away immediately – unless a prior arrangement has been made.

What is Buyers’ Premium?

A buyers’ premium is a percentage which is added to the buyers’ invoice. Auctioneers use this as a contribution toward the costs of providing an auction service (15% in this case, which is vatable).

Are there rules and regulations relating to the purchase of goods?

Terms and Conditions can be found on the bottom of our website. They can also be found in the catalogue available on the day of the auction.
