We hold frequent valuation days at our Prinknash saleroom, between 10am and 4pm (appointment recommended to avoid waiting). See Calendar for dates.
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).
