How do I bid?
A buyer can bid in person at the auction which may be located at our auction house in Penrose or one of our ‘on-site’ locations. For this type of bidding you must register first at the location. There is also the option to engage in phone bidding and absentee bidding, you must register for these at least one day prior to the auction. For more information about these types of bidding please give us a ring or see our buying page.
How private is the information I provide to All About Auctions Ltd?
All About Auctions is committed to protecting our client’s privacy in the online and offline communities. The information you provide is strictly confidential unless otherwise agreed to for auction purposes. We have a privacy statement which you can read here.
What happens at the live auction?
Some items have a reserve price agreed to by the vendor. If this is the case, the item will only be sold if it reaches its reserve price. Items that do not meet their reserve price can be negotiated by us, with the vendor, on your behalf. Items with no reserve will go to the highest bidder.
What standard of quality are the goods up for auction?
All About Auctions does not accept goods that are of inferior quality. We have quality standards in place to ensure the items we auction are in acceptable condition. We do our best to provide the highest quality items at the best deal possible. You can view the items generally on the day prior to the auction or in our catalogue.
Where and when can I view the items that are up for auction?
Generally the items we auction are available for viewing on the day previous to the auction. In special circumstances we may be able to offer different viewing times depending on when the goods are received. The whereabouts of the viewing will either be at our auction house in Penrose or at the on-site location of the goods. If you are signed up for auction alerts and on the mailing list for our catalogue this information will be sent to you.
If you have any questions you can give us a ring on 09 579 7060.
