I hereby acknowledge and confirm the following: 

My bid, once submitted, cannot be withdrawn by me at any time before 1 hour after the close of the auction. My bid may be accepted by the seller at any time before the close of the auction.  It is subject to the terms and conditions of the auction which I have read and understood. I have read and understood the legal pack applicable to my bid/lot and agree to be bound by any special conditions within that pack. If my bid is successful (whether as the highest bid or upon acceptance by the seller in the course of the auction) I shall be bound by the lot terms and conditions as advertised online. 

At the point of registration you will be required to insert credit or debit card details as a way of payment towards the deposit and or reservation fee. We will only hold a nominal amount (which will be stated at the point of bidding) to enable you to bid. This amount will only be debited from your account should you be the successful bidder, in the event you are unsuccessful the agreed amount will be released back to your card within five business days.  If you are the successful bidder we will debit the agreed amount from your account immediately at the close of the auction, we will then contact you to confirm the balance outstanding balance (if applicable) at which point you can opt to use the same card.  

Please note that the bidding process will work in a different way to an eBay auction, so there is NO advantage to bidding at the last second.

Each auction will automatically stay open until there has not been a bid for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes without a bid, the auction will close and the highest bidder will be successful subject to the reserve price being met. If there is another bid within 15 minutes of the last bid, the auction countdown timer will be restarted for another 15 minutes to allow further bidding. This system avoids last minute (or second) bidding, and makes for a fairer auction as in a live room auction situation.

Please bid in good time before the end of the auction, delaying your bid to the last seconds may disadvantage you if your connection slows or you lose internet connectivity. It is the bidder's responsibility to ensure the bid has been lodged with the auctioneer. The auctioneer accepts no responsibility for bids that are not received or are received late, and reserves the right to reject any bid without notice.

Minimum online bidding increments:

Up to £50,000 - £250 minimum bid
£50,001 to £150,000 - £500 minimum bid
£150,001 to £250,000 - £1,000 minimum bid
£250,001 to £1 million - £2,000 minimum bid
£1 million+ -  £2,500 minimum bid
