May 15th - 20th 2018
- How it Works.
Please note that
this service is only available to UK Phone Numbers
**Final Bid can only be booked on Saturday 19th May 2018 with the
call or form reaching us before 7.0pm on Saturday 19th May**
This is a new
feature that we have introduced to give all the advantages of an
internet auction but to allow our customers to bid at the end of the
auction, if they wish, in a live situation.
Once you have
placed a bid of over £200 on a lot in the auction a form will be available for
you to request to be Final
Bidder on that lot (only available Saturday 19th) if you wish to do so.
you must have placed a bid of
£200 or above on the Lot you
wish to "Final Bid" on before the close
of bidding at 7.0pm on Saturday
19th May for all Lots . Unless you book this option you
cannot bid after 7.0 pm on Saturday
19th May 2018 for all
Lots. Bidding forms
are disabled & the phone lines are closed once 7.0pm is reached.
Once the auction
finishes (7.0pm on Saturday
19th May) we will remove all prices from the Website. These
will be replaced with results once Final Bid is completed.
20th May between 10.30am and
3.30pm we will ring any customers who have requested this service
on a number that you have provided. You will be told one of the
1) That you have won
the item and no further bidding is necessary (You can check as the
result will be on the website).
That you are the top bidder but the reserve has not been reached.
You then have the option to pay the reserve or put your top offer
forward to the Vendor.
you are not leading and a Customer has left a
higher "Up To" bid. You then have the option to bid against that bid until you either drop
out or take the lead and win the lot.
4) That more than one
person has requested "Final Bid" and we will have two bidders on the
phones and will take alternate bids until one of the bidders drops
out. If there are more than 2 requests we will deal with two people
and then go over to the third/fourth etc until we have one
Bidders who request

leave either a landline or mobile number but we would prefer a
landline as this is more reliable.
is "Your Call".
This period enables you to
call us if for any reason you have not received a Final Bid call as
requested. No results will be finalised until the Your Call period
has ended for that block of bids, and so if we have missed anyone we
can then ring back the current highest bidder on your item if you
wish to continue bidding. The number for these calls is 07758 857776
only. If you are leading bidder on an item after a Final Bid call
then you can be certain that you have won the item if you do not
receive a return call by the end of the Your Call period. This will
eliminate a situation where a clerical error causes disappointment.
Please do not call us the next day to say that you did not
receive your "Final Bid" phone call.
Your Call 1-200
The bidding increments
that will be used are listed
£200 - £500
£550 - £1000
£1000 - £2000
This will mean
that you will have the chance to be the Final Bidder as is the
case in a live auction and should remove the disappointment
suffered by some of our customers when they cannot get through
in the last few seconds of a bidding block.
