Conditions of Business

COVID-19 STATEMENT.

Posted 3rd November 2020:

Following the 31st October 2020 announcement by the UK Government on new national lockdown restrictions commencing 5th November your attention is drawn to the following:
Our online auction of Sports Memorabilia on 9th, 10th & 11th November will proceed as scheduled. However, it has been necessary to make a number of changes to the arrangements concerning bidders and buyers.

Viewing: The last opportunity to view lots at our premises on a timed appointment basis is Wednesday 4th November. Social distancing protocols are in place and staff and visitors are required to wear masks.

Condition Reports: Any requests for condition reports or additional photographs must be received by Tuesday 3rd November, so we can reply by the final working day before lockdown.

Telephone Bidding: Briefly we posted an announcement that we would not be able to operate this service for the current sale. We are pleased to announce that upon further review of lockdown compliance, the telephone bidding service has been restored for the auction.

Absentee Bidding: i) Absentee Bids can be left by email or telephone up to 9:30am on the morning of each sale day with a declared maximum limit that will be executed by the auctioneer on the bidder's behalf. ii) Registered clients at the Graham Budd Auctions website can place and manage their bids online up to 9:30am on the morning of each sale day. iii) The online bidding platforms saleroom.com and invaluable.com can also accept absentee bids, but please be aware the higher rate of buyer's premium will still be applied.

Payment: Graham Budd Auctions will be operating with minimum staff mostly working from home. Reaching us by telephone will be more difficult. Successful bidders are encouraged to pay by bank transfer if at all possible. If wishing to pay by card please do so online by using STRIPE at our website as opposed to phoning the card info through. Buyers who have registered a card at the-saleroom.com can instruct us to charge the card. Alternatively, buyers can settle their account by Paypal. NB On this occasion we will not be able to accept payments by cheque.

Collection: Successful bidders will not be able to collect their purchases in person from our premises before the national lockdown is lifted, currently scheduled for 2nd December. Storage charges will not be applied.

Postage and Packing: We will be offering our usual packing and shipping service on a worldwide basis. However, with limited staff the speed of orders will inevitably be impacted.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BIDDERS & BUYERS
Conditions of Business
All lots are offered subject to Graham Budd Auctions Ltd's (GBA) Conditions of Business which can be viewed in full at our website www.grahambuddauctions.co.uk

Estimates and Reserves
Estimates are published as a guide only. The final hammer price of a lot may be higher of lower than the range of figures and there are no predetermined starting prices. Estimates can be subject to revision in which case a saleroom announcement will be made. The estimates are exclusive of buyer's premium and VAT.

All lots are subject to reserves. The reserve price is never set higher than the low estimate.

Buyer's Premium & VAT
When online bidding at GBA via www.invaluable.com, a buyer's premium of 22.5% is applicable on all lots.

When bidding directly with GBA a buyer's premium (BP) of 17.5% is applicable to all lots in this sale, either by absentee or telephone bidding.

You can additionally register for live online bidding directly with GBA at www.grahambuddauctions.co.uk. When using this service a buyer's premium of 20.5% is applicable to all lots.

Bidding at GBA is also available via www.the-saleroom.com a buyer's premium of 22.45% is applicable on all lots


VAT
The majority of lots in the auction are offered under the Auctioneer's Margin Scheme and as such BP is subject to VAT at the standard rate of 20%. Under VAT rules some items are deemed to be zero rated, such as books, programmes, newspapers, magazines etc. If this is the case VAT will not be raised on the buyer's premium. On very rare occasions VAT is payable on the hammer price as well as the buyer's premium, but this will be made clear to prospective bidders.

If a buyer is from outside of the European Union (EU) and instructs the auctioneer to ship outside of the EU then the purchase becomes an export order and the VAT will be removed from the invoice.

Absentee Bidders
In the absence of room bidding, and if the bidder does not wish to bid live as the sale progresses, the auctioneer will be accepting absentee bids which can be submitted by the following methods:
Registering as a client at www.grahambuddauctions.co.uk where you can submit and manage your bids thereafter. By registering with us and opting in, you will also receive updates from us regarding future events. As a registered client at GBA you can also pay your invoices at the website safely and securely through STRIPE.
Email your bids directly to the auctioneer [email protected] providing your full contact details.
We would prefer bids by email, but you can register your bids by phone with the auctioneer on +44 (0)20 8366 2525.
Rather than using the live bidding functionality at www.the-saleroom.com or www.invaluable.com you can also register absentee bids there, but please note you will still be charged buyer's premium at the same rate as live bidders at 22.45% and 22.5% (+ vat) respectively.
If sending your bids by post, please do so in ample time before the auction to ensure arrival.
GBA will also be offering a telephone bidding service. Covid-19 Statement: Due to staff number restrictions in the current circumstances, and subject to the level of demand, it may not be possible for us to operate this service as fully as we would normally.
Additional Information for Online Bidding

(d) commence legal proceedings to recover the purchase price for the lot, plus interest and legal costs;
(e) disclose the Buyer's details to the seller to enable the seller to commence legal proceedings.
