How to buy
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, The Lichfield Auction Centre is closed to members of the public and many of our longstanding procedures have been adapted. For up-to-date information, please click here.
All of our auctions are accompanied by a fully illustrated online catalogue which is available around 10 days prior to the sale on the-saleroom.com. For the majority of sales, customers are invited to preview the lots on the day prior to the sale.
If customers are unable to attend the sale, we offer live online bidding through the-saleroom.com whereby bids can be placed in real time. Alternatively, a commission bid can be left with the appropriate saleroom. To download the form, please click here.
Commission bid - by email: email@example.com

All sales offer an online bidding facility through the-saleroom.com. Every sale has a live video feed to our Saleroom so that bidders can view the auction in real time and bid as if in the room. Please note that there is an additional 6% charge (+VAT) for all transactions made through the-saleroom.com
In order to bid online, customers must create an account with the-saleroom.com.
We now have a new platform which charges a flat fee £3 or 3% + VAT www.easyliveauction.com
The buyer’s premium is charged at 20.00% (+ VAT) on the hammer price of any lots purchased.
If lots are purchased online through the-saleroom.com charge a further 6% (+VAT) and Easyliveauction £3 or 3% (+VAT)administration charge is applicable.
We accept payment via debit card or bank-to-bank transfer, for which details can be found at the bottom of the copy invoice which will be sent via email after the sale.
We regret that we are unable to accept payment by credit card to a large increase in costs - we felt it unfair to increase buyers’ premium and penalise customers who do not use credit cards.
