Buying

Buying at an auction is an interesting and exciting affair.

The selling price of an item (lot in auction jargon) is not fixed, but depends on what is offered by the interested parties.

The lots offered in an auction can be found in the catalogue, which contains all lots with their lot number, description and pre-sale estimate.

We offer the following options for bidding:

  1. Bidding in the room
  2. Absentee bidding
  3. Phone bidding
  4. Online bidding

More information about the different options for bidding can be found here.
Usually, the online catalogue is available about two weeks before the auction. If you want to be informed about our upcoming auctions, please subscribe to our newsletters. A printed catalogue can be bought during the viewing days or will be forwarded by request.

Prior to the auction we offer several viewing days. We recommend visiting these viewing days in order to see the offered lots and examine them for any damages. If you wish to purchase a lot without visiting the viewing days, we advise you to inquire about the condition of the object by e-mail. After buying, the options for cancellation of the sale are limited. The upcoming viewing days can be found in our agenda.

The costs for the buyer consist of the hammer price, buyer’s premium and in some cases also resale rights. Click here for more information about these costs.
