FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY TIMED AUCTIONS?
2019 was a revolutionary year for timed sales in the UK and Worldwide. With more auctioneers hosting them, buyers are revelling in the freedom and flexibility that an online timed auction offers.
The very nature of a timed auction provides the buyer with enough time to consider their bids and in turn ensures they do not miss out on the items they want to purchase! In this busy modern society we know it is essential to build a business around the needs of our customers, that’s why we believe in the relaxed style of a timed auction.
Our timed auctions run over a period of ten days, for the vendor this means any consignments have more than enough time to be seen by potential buyers. As an auctioneer it allows us to maximise advertising potential and give your items the attention and promotion they deserve.
This year we expect the timed auction industry to continue to soar and we hope to grow with it.

I'VE SEEN SOMETHING I LIKE- HOW DO I BID?
We are running our timed auctions through www.easyliveauction.com
To bid you will need to make an account on the easy live website and then register to bid for our sales- you can find this by searching auctions or auctioneers.
Once you have registered for the sale you can simply find the lots you want to buy and place your maximum bid. Don't worry, this isn't necessarily the final purchase price as your bid will only increase as someone bids against you.
You can change, increase or remove your bid easily right up until the end of the auction.
Unfortunately we cannot bid on your behalf or take commission bids.
I HAVE SOMETHING TO SELL- DO YOU CHARGE FOR LOCAL COLLECTION?
If you have items you want to consign to our auctions we offer a free local collection service.
We we will personally collect items within a 15 mile radius, meaning your consignments reach us safely and securely. We have a large van therefore we can transport most things hassle free!
