FAQ Group: Charges

What additional charges will I need to pay?

You will pay 22% buyers premium on the winning value of the lot and the total will be subject to VAT (20%).
I.e.  an item won for £100 after buyers premium is added will be £122 + vat if applicable. The total cost pre delivery costs will be £146.40 inc vat.

What is buyer Premium?

In auctions, the buyer’s premium is a charge in addition to the hammer price (i.e. the winning bid announced) of an auction item, or lot. The winning bidder is required to pay both the hammer price and the percentage of that price called for by the buyer’s premium. It is charged by the auctioneer in addition to the seller’s commission, which had always been charged by auction houses.

Will I incur storage fees?

Items that are paid for but not collected may incur storage fees by the site:
FEE SCALE (Per invoice per week)
£0.00 – £50.00 = £5.00 + VAT =£6.00
£51.00 – £100.00 = £10.00 + VAT =£12.00
£101.00 – £250.00 = £15.00 + VAT =£18.00
£251.00+   = £25.00 + VAT =£30.00

How Much are the delivery charges?

We now offer various forms of delivery.  Each auction states what method of delivery is available for that particular sale.
PARCEL DELIVERY
e.g. Small household appliances, clothing and games consoles etc
Parcels are delivered through DPD and you will receive tracking information for this.  Items that are won from the same auction, the same sale and that are on the same invoice can be bundled together for one postage price.  So, whether you win one item or multiple it is one price.
 
PALLET DELIVERY
e.g. White goods, household appliances and furniture
On certain auctions we now offer pallet delivery. We have designed a simple system to help you to estimate how many pallets are required in order to deliver you your lots.  On each lot there is an icon to denote how much space on a pallet the lot occupies.
 
TWO PERSON LIFT
e.g. White goods, household appliances and furniture
Delivery to the room of your choice.  Please note auctions designated with this type of delivery also offer a click and collect option if delivery is not required. This option is available when paying an invoice.
Please allow up to 7 working days for DELIVERIES to arrive.
