Guide to Using Charles Taylor Auctioneers

Whether buying or selling, we are 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 at our Auction Centre 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 3 months) A £200 cash deposit is also required which will be refunded if no purchases are made.

Buying on line via I Bidder or Bidspotter will require you to register by following the on line instructions

How do I pay for goods?

You can pay by Cash (£5,000.00 limit) or Bank Transfer. Debit cards are also accepted when paying at the Auction Centre

How do I collect what I’ve bought?

Purchases can be collected either in person or by a courier of your choice. Collection dates are shown for each Auction in the Terms & Conditions

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.

Current Buyer’s Premium is 15% + vat when bidding at the Auction Centre and 19% + vat when bidding on line.

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.
