More About this Item
Conditions of Sale
Any questions regarding condition must be resolved to the buyer's satisfaction before leaving a bid. Condition reports close 24 hours prior to auction.
Condition reports should be considered opinion only and the purchaser should satisfy themselves as to whether or not in their own judgement, the lot accords with the description or indeed their expectations.
Overseas buyers must not bid on large heavy bulky or fragile items unless they intend to use a courier or a service like Pack and Send which can be expensive for heavy large items. There are currently major delays on some overseas shipments due to Covid 19 and Australia's International borders being closed.
We can email additional digital images prior to the sale. This is a complimentary service. This service is only available up until 48 hours before auction start time on items over $100 estimate, for items below this amount we refer you to the online catalogue images of the lot/s.
Before bidding prospective buyers are required to register. You will be asked to provide your name, address and telephone number, and will then be given a bidding number. This numbered bidding system ensures client confidentiality and the information will be used for accounting purposes only. Proof of identity will be required, i.e. Drivers licence, upon registering.
By Absentee Bid
If you are unable to attend the Sale, you can leave a bid in your absence. Absentee bidding forms are available and should be submitted in person, by email or fax prior to the auction (we will try to place bids on the auctioneer's sale sheets after the start of the auction but cannot guarantee the execution of bids).
We always try to buy the lot for as little as possible subject to competition from other bidders. If there are two identical bids, the first one received by Lugosi Auctioneers will take precedence.
In some instances depending on the amount and/or quantity of the commission bid(s) and whether or not you are a regular customer, we may ask for credit or debit card details to guarantee your bid(s). We will not process the card unless you fail to pay for the items after seven days from the date of the Sale. As an absentee bidder should you be successful we will contact you after the auction has ended.
Please note that if you are successful in your bid, the lot(s) must be paid for within forty eight hours of conclusion of the auction. Unless alternative arrangements have been made with us, storage charges will be levied until payment takes place. The onus is therefore as much on the bidder as the auctioneer to check on the status of their bids and to complete the transaction.
Telephone bidding is only available for live auctions. Please contact us as early as possible if you would like to arrange a line, which are reserved on a 'first come, first served' basis. We will telephone you approximately several lots prior to the relevant lot to ensure a good connection (especially mobiles/international). We recommend a back up telephone number and a cover bid in case we cannot reach you by telephone. Telephone bidding is usually reserved for higher value lots and at Lugosi Auctioneer's discretion.
