One important difference between an auction and a retail shop is that all goods are sold as seen. Lots could have faults or missing parts so it is very important that you carefully inspect items you are interested in buying before the sale takes place. There are no guarantees given when buying at auction. The absence of a condition report does not constitute a guarantee.

A buyers’ premium at 17.5% plus VAT, will be added to the bid price of each lot.

Lots purchased online will also attract a 2.5% plus VAT surcharge through Southams Online or 5% plus VAT through the- saleroom.com

We regret that we are unable to process requests for condition reports received after 1.00pm on the day preceding the sale.

Access to the saleroom is by catalogue only, priced at £10.00 (admits two).
Identification may be required, and the auctioneers reserve the right to refuse access at their discretion.

Collection of lots purchased are at the designated times and locations as follows :

Collections of lots on sale day from 12pm - 4:45pm : The Auction Centre, Eastcotts Park, Wallis Way, Bedford, MK42 0PE.

Later collections can be made the following Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 9am – 3pm from the Southams administration office : 24 Newnham Street, Bedford, MK40 3JR.

Any collection times other than the above are by appointment only directly with the auctioneers.

Please see the shipping information page for information on firearms or international shipping.

On successful purchase of items at auction, payment of your invoice should be made via any of the following accepted methods of payment as per our terms:

• Cash

Note: We do not accept any form of credit card payment or any type of card payment over the telephone.

Attention is drawn to the Auctioneers Conditions of Sale. In particular, it is emphasised that all accounts must be settled on the day of sale. Please always remember that the lots purchased are at your own risk from the fall of the hammer, it is therefore in your own interest to get everything paid and collected as soon as possible.
