VALUATION DAYS

Every Friday between 10am and 4pm, we have valuers on hand at our Prinknash salerooms to view any items you wish to bring in.
Please telephone 01452 344499 for an appointment to avoid waiting.


  Commission Bids

If you cannot attend the auction in person to bid, you can submit a commission bid with the saleroom office no less than one hour before the start of an auction.

Commission bids are the maximum amount up to which the auctioneer may bid on your behalf (exclusive of buyer’s premium and VAT). They will be executed at the lowest possible price having regard to any reserve and competing bids.  If two buyers submit identical commission bids, the auctioneers will give preference to the first bid received. The auctioneer will execute commission bids directly from the rostrum, clearly identifying the successful bid as commission bid.

Commission bids may be left in person, by telephone, email or through the 'My Lots & Bids' feature of our online catalogues. All bids submitted are regarded as acknowledgement that the bidder has read and accepts the terms and conditions of sale and will submit any specific personal details requested to verify their intention and ability to comply with those conditions.

Chorley’s strongly advises viewing onsite in person, or through an agent, and stresses that any descriptions, condition reports and images supplied to the absentee bidder are an opinion provided by this firm and do not guarantee the condition, age or any other characteristic of the lot in question.

Execution of commission bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we cannot accept liability in an individual instance for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with it, arising from circumstances beyond our reasonable control. 

Successful bidders will be notified after the auction and asked to confirm their proposed payment and collection arrangements. We request that all purchased Lots be paid for and removed from the saleroom by 5pm on the Friday one week after the auction. Unless otherwise agreed with the Auctioneers, any Lots remaining at the saleroom after this time will incur a removal charge of £10, plus storage fees of £2 per Lot per day (all subject to VAT). 

For details of couriers and shipping firms, please refer to our Shipping section.

Telephone Bidding

Chorley's offer prospective buyers the facility to bid live on the telephone for lots estimated at £400 or more (low estimate).

Bidders are advised that there is a limit to the number of lines available for telephone bidding and these are allocated on a first come/first served basis. Should all available lines be pre-allocated, prospective buyers will be asked if they wish to leave a commission bid instead.

Telephone bids must be requested and booked by 4pm on the day prior to the auction. Bidders will be required to provide two telephone numbers, in case one line is busy or unobtainable at the time of the auction. They will also be asked to supply an emergency bid for each lot for which they propose to bid; this will only be executed in the event that saleroom staff are unable to reach the bidder on the telephone number provided at the time the lot is offered for sale.

Successful bidders will be asked to confirm their payment and collection arrangements.  All Lots must be paid for and collected within one week of the auction, or storage charges will be incurred. If payment is made over the telephone by credit card, the purchaser must bring the payment card when coming to collect their lot(s) from the saleroom, otherwise the lots will not be released for a period of 72 hours from the time of the transaction.

We would remind prospective bidders that the firm strongly advises viewing onsite in person, or by an agent, and that any descriptions, condition reports and images supplied to the absentee bidder are an opinion provided by this firm and do not guarantee the condition, age or any other characteristic of the lot in question.

This is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we cannot accept liability in an individual instance for failing to execute a telephone bid or for errors and omissions in connection with it, arising from circumstances beyond our reasonable control.  Telephone bids may be recorded for security purposes and, by bidding on the telephone, prospective buyers consent to the recording of their conversation.
