We hold frequent valuation days at our Prinknash saleroom, between 10am and 4pm (appointment recommended to avoid waiting). See Calendar for dates.
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.
ALL BIDDERS ARE REQUIRED TO READ AND ABIDE BY OUR CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS.
