How to Buy

  1. We would recommend all potential buyers to come and view the items in person before purchasing as all items are sold as seen.  (Note that being able to view in person does not apply to our Specialist online sales as condition reports etc can be provided).  Bloomfield Auctions are one of the few auction houses to provide 3 viewing days, being Saturday 10.30am-1pm, Monday 10am-7pm & Tuesday 10am-6pm.

  2. After viewing, should you be interested in purchasing you will need to register with the Auction staff by purchasing your catalogue and bidding number for £1.  Once you have done this, you are now free to bid.

  3. At Bloomfield Auctions, there are three ways to bid:

    1. Be here on the night of the auction and bid by placing your catalogue in the air.

    2. Leave a commission bid with staff.  In other words, you can leave your maximum bid for an item that you are interested in.  The bid will be registered and will be used on the night of the auction.

    3. Request a telephone bid.  This applies to items only over £30.  We will telephone you as your item approaches and you will bid over the phone as if you were in the room.

  4. If you are successful in purchasing an item, the item must be paid and removed from our premises either on the Tuesday night of the sale or the next before 5 pm.  If this does not happen, Bloomfield Auctions and the vendor reserve the right to place the item(s) back into the auction.

  5. Payment can be made in cash, debit/credit card or online transfer.

  6. Please note when purchasing, there is a 15% commission charge subject to VAT at the prevailing rate to be paid.

  7. If you purchase a large piece that you cannot transport, Bloomfield Auctions do work in partnership with a courier firm who’s services we recommend and have been working with for over 15 years.  Costs apply.

  8. Please note that the auction commences every Tuesday at 6.30pm.
