The Smallprint for both Buyers and Vendors

The Auctioneers are the agents for both the vendors and buyers. All items offered for sale are sold as seen with no guarantee of any kind given or implied unless stated by the auctioneer. Bidding is a contract in auction and failure to pay an account is a criminal offence.

Please make yourself aware of age, condition, origin etc before bidding as the auctioneer cannot be held responsible for descriptions and or accuracy concerning same items.

Make sure you have viewed items to establish your own opinion to age, condition and authenticity.

Purchasers must not remove lots from sale but should seek the assistance of a porter, who upon receipt of sales receipt will hand over the said items.

The Auctioneer and vendors are not responsible for any loss, damage or injury sustained by any person on the premises before, during or after the sale no matter how it may arise.
