ADVICE TO POSTAL BIDDERS 1. Return commission-bidding forms as soon as possible as bids are recorded in order of receipt. Where two bids for the same amount are received, the first highest bid to be received will be the buyer, subject of course to bids from the floor. 2. Bids may be accepted by Post, Fax or Telephone. Telephone bids must be confirmed in writing, as the auctioneer cannot be responsible for mistakes in telephone communication. 3. All commission bids are handled in the strictest confidence and, if successful, the lot is sold to the "book." No information regarding postal bids will be passed onto other postal bidders or room bidders prior to sale. 4. The auctioneer will normally increase bidding in 10% jumps. We would ask postal bidders to keep their bids to the nearest multiple round figure i.e. $5, $10, $20 etc. Bids such as $101 will be treated as $100, and similar odd amounts rounded down to the nearest actual bid at the auctioneer's discretion. 5. It is important to realize that the auctioneer will attempt to purchase the lot at the lowest possible price and that we understand that the bid given is the maximum figure the bidder is prepared to pay for any lot. 6. We are happy to handle bids for customers who are interested in a number of lots but wish to limit their overall purchases to a particular amount. Bidders are asked to mark their bids in the usual way and then clearly state the maximum amount they wish to spend overall. Similarly, bidders wishing to bid on a choice of two items should clearly indicate on the bidding form "either/or." 7. Bidders should give full details on both how the invoice is to be sent or transmitted and how the lots should be dispatched. Generally, the invoice amount including postage & insurance costs must be settled prior to lots being dispatched to successful bidders. 8. The Buyer's Premium for internet bidders of 20% on the hammered price plus 7% GST on the commission will be charged (Total=21.4%). Except for internet bidders, the Buyer's Premium of 17% on the hammered price plus 7% GST on the commission will be charged (Total=18.19%), however there will be no additional charge for executing bids. All bids are exclusive of the Buyer's Premium.
