Catalogues for each sale are available online from 6pm on the Thursday prior to the sale and hard copies are available in the Saleroom from 10am on the Tuesday prior to every sale.
Before you can bid on an item, you must register for the sale.
There are four easy ways to bid at Warrington Auctions;
After you've registered (you may be asked for your driving license or passport) and collected your paddle number you are free to bid in the auction room. You only need register once for a paddle number and this number may be used at every Warrington auction. The auctioneer will announce bids and if you are interested in buying the item raise your paddle and continue bidding until you wish to stop, or if everyone else stops bidding the auctioneer will bring down the gavel and you are the 'winner' of the lot.
By Commission Bid
If you are unable to attend an auction you can instruct Warrington Auction to bid on your behalf. You can submit your bids to us by filling in the form in the auction room, by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or by submitting your bids via our online bidding facility at www.the-saleroom.com. To find out if you were the successful purchaser of the lots you left bids on call us on 01925 658833.
If you prefer to bid by telephone, we will call you during the auction and bid on your behalf to your instructions. To arrange telephone bids, contact our office on 01925 658833. Unfortunately we cannot offer telephone bids on items which have a lower estimate of less than £80.00, if you are unsure then contact the office.
