1 Each Seller is required to complete a Register to Sell Form for each Lot which he/she wishes to consign with us. Once we receive the Register to Sell Form we will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time to inspect and photograph the vehicle.
2 Based on the information that you provide to us, and the information we have gathered during our inspection, we will partially complete a Lot Details Form which we will send to you. You should read this carefully and notify us of any corrections that need to be made. The rest of the form must be completed by you and returned to us.
3 Where it is not possible to arrange a visit to inspect the Lot prior to the Auction you will need to complete the Lot Details Form in its entirety and send this to us.
4 The Seller warrants that when submitting the Lot Details Form to us the form contains an accurate and complete description of the Lot and is not misleading in any respect.
5 The Lot Details Form must be signed by the Seller.

8 The Auctioneer has complete discretion as to whether to accept or reject a Lot for inclusion in an Auction and we will notify you if your Lot has been accepted for inclusion.
9 Provided your Lot is accepted for inclusion in an Auction, we shall agree with you with an estimated selling price and may also agree a reserve price for the Lot where applicable. Prior to the date of the Auction we will market the Lot in our online catalogue and also use a variety of other advertising methods. You hereby consent to our using photographs that we have taken of the Lot for this purpose.
10 Any estimated selling price that we may offer is purely a matter of opinion and is not a guarantee of the eventual selling price. We make no warranty or representation that a Lot will be sold or that it will be sold for the estimated selling price.
11 Prior to listing the Lot in the Auction and on our Website, we will provide you with a copy of the description which we intend to use for the Lot. It is your responsibility to check the description to ensure that it is accurate. If you do not notify us of any required changes within 24 hours of receipt then we will assume that the description is approved by you. The Seller shall indemnify us in respect of any claim, loss, damage, cost or expense that we may suffer or incur as a result of any inaccuracies which have not been brought to our attention. Under no circumstances will we accept any liability to the Seller for any inaccuracy or mistakes in the description of a Lot once the final description has been approved by a Seller prior to publication.
12 Unless we have been notified otherwise in writing by the Seller, we will assume that the vehicle registration number which is allocated to the vehicle will be sold as part of the Lot. Should the Seller wish to retain the vehicle registration number you must ensure that the vehicle is re-registered with a new registration number prior to the Auction and this new registration number is notified to the Auctioneer.
A Consignment Fee is payable to us at the time a Lot is accepted for inclusion in an Auction.
1 You must ensure that the Lot is delivered to the specified location by the time nominated by us, normally on the day before the Auction. The Lot should be in a clean and saleable condition. For your convenience there will be a valeting service and an emergency mechanical repair service available onsite. Any costs incurred in connection with such services shall be the Seller’s responsibility and payment must be made directly to the service provider.
2 Sellers are required to ensure that the Lot is available for inspection by potential Bidders from 9am on Saturday through to close of the bidding on Sunday of the Auction weekend.
3 Lots are exhibited at the Seller’s sole risk. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss, damage or injury that may be suffered or incurred as a result of exhibiting a Lot at the Auction site.
4 All relevant documentation, parts and keys relating to the Lot must accompany the Lot for the Auction weekend.

6 As part of the service that we provide to Sellers, you and a partner may stay on a Bed and Breakfast basis only for two nights at a hotel nominated by us. All other charges are the responsibility of the Seller and are payable directly to the hotel.
7 Should the Seller be unable to attend the Auction weekend or a pre-booked inspection slot with a potential Bidder but has delivered the Lot then we may offer the Seller the option of having our staff assist in demonstrating the Lot to potential Bidders. Our staff will be able to start up the engine and show the Lot however they will not be in a position to take a potential Bidder on a test drive. A fee will be agreed in advance with the Seller for this service and this fee must be paid prior to the date of the Auction.
8 A reserve can be reduced at any time but only with the specific written agreement of the Seller.
9 The Seller may offer to take potential Bidders on a test drive to demonstrate the vehicle. On no account should the Seller permit the Bidder to drive the vehicle as there is no guarantee that the Seller or the Bidder’s insurance will cover this. We do not provide any insurance cover for any test drives nor do we provide any insurance cover for the vehicles. All risk in a Lot lies with the Seller until the Lot is sold. The Seller hereby indemnifies us against any claim, loss, damage, cost or expense that we may suffer or incur as a result of the Seller taking the Bidder on a test drive.
10 Where a Seller fails to deliver a Lot for an Auction we shall be entitled to charge a withdrawal fee equal to 10% of the mid estimated selling price agreed with the Seller under clause 13.9. This fee plus VAT is immediately payable to the Auctioneer on the date of the relevant Auction.
11 The Lots may be placed on an inspection ramp during the Auction. The inspection ramps are provided and operated by an independent third party who is not under our control and as a result we cannot accept any liability for the service that such party provides.
12 Where a Lot fails to sell at Auction the Seller hereby grants to us the exclusive right to market and sell the Lot for a period of 14 days following the close of the Auction. The Auctioneer shall notify the Seller should it decide to exercise that option.
13 Should the Seller sell the Lot via a private sale within 30 days following the Auction then the Seller must notify us of the sale and of the identity of the private buyer.
14 In all cases where a Lot fails to sell the Seller must collect and remove the Lot from the Auction location immediately following the close of the Auction. In the event the Seller fails to collect and remove the Lot the Seller shall be liable to indemnify the Auctioneer for any storage and such other costs and expenses that it may incur as a result.
1 The Lot shall be sold for the Highest Bid Price. At the discretion of the Auctioneer, the Lot may be sold for a price which is lower than the reserve price provided that the Sales Proceeds received by the Seller shall be the same as if the Lot had been sold for the reserve price.
2 Unless agreed otherwise with a Seller prior to the Auction, all Lots are listed without a reserve price.
3 Within 5 days of receipt by the Seller of the Sales Proceeds in accordance with clause 17.1, the Seller shall notify the DVLA of the details of the Buyer.
