If a deposit is required you will be emailed and the deposit amount of £10,000 or €15,000 will be required which will give you a credit limit of £50,000 or €50,000, if you require a higher credit limit then a further 10% of your projected spend will be required. If a deposit is required you will be contacted and the deposit amount required will be 10% of your projected spend.

Euro Auctions frequently sell lots on a choice basis, i.e. similar lots are grouped together and offered to the bidders. The auctioneer commences bidding on the entire group and if you are successful you have a short time to choose which of the lots you wish to purchase. By default the online bidding system selects the first item numerically. You must select at least one other lot before deselecting the first lot if you do not wish to purchase the first lot.
You can choose to purchase all of the lots in the group if you are the high bidder.
Yes, however upon receipt of Bills of Lading, VAT will be refunded.

An Order of Sale is available on the homepage of our website during auction week.
No. The key to bidding on the Internet is to bid based on the value displayed in your bid button. While the audio is helpful and generally synchronized with your bid button, it's important to focus on the value displayed in your bid button, as this is the amount that is submitted to the auctioneer. For example, if you click on the bid button when it reads £10,000, you are submitting a bid for £10,000, regardless of what you hear the auctioneer say. Please note the bidding process is fast paced.
If your bid is accepted you will see “You Are ” displayed in the "High Bidder" field and the message field will display you as high bidder. Your bid button will also be disabled so you cannot bid against yourself and the text "You Are High Bidder" will be inside the button. Please note you are not the only person bidding online and another Internet buyer can bid against you! If your bid button becomes enabled again but you see Internet buyer in the high bidder it is because another online user has outbid you! If a bidder onsite is successful you will see "Floor" displayed in the "High Bidder" field.
In the early stages of the auction of a lot, the asking price can change very rapidly. When you click on your bid button, it's possible that many other bidders (both in-person and on the Internet) were also placing bids and of course only one bid at any amount can be accepted. You should have plenty of time to get your bid in as the auctioneer begins to slow down prior to selling the lot.
Additionally you may accidentally enter a bid at the start which is extremely high and no one else bids against you so you end up with a lot costing you more than it was worth!
Your Bid button will be disabled so you cannot bid against yourself and the text "You Are High Bidder" will be inside the button. If your bid button becomes enabled again but you see Internet buyer in the high bidder it is because another online user has outbid you! If a bidder onsite is successful you will see "Floor" displayed in the "High Bidder" field.
No. All bids submitted using the ‘Free Internet Bidding’ service are final and irrevocable. When you click the bid button you are submitting a binding bid in the amount displayed in the bid button to the auctioneer. If you are the high bidder and the auctioneer sells the lot to you, you are the new owner of the lot. So, if you do not intend to buy the item, do not click your bid button.
When you activate your bid button, you are signaling your intention to bid. If you activate your bid button and then click your bid button, you are submitting an irrevocable bid.
In case of a Choice group, Please note: If you are the high bidder on a Choice group, the auctioneer will sell you the lots and by default the first lot is selected and he will give you a short opportunity to buy any or all of the additional lots remaining in the Choice Group at the current sold price. If you do not wish to purchase the first lot you must select another lot in the group and deselect the first lot. You need to do this before you start bidding. Any remaining lots not selected are re-opened to the floor for bidding by others.
Once the amount displayed in your bid button plus the amount of purchases you have made exceeds your credit limit, your bid button is disabled and your bid status indicator will display "Credit Limit Exceeded". Once the "Credit Limit Exceeded" message displays, you will not be able to place any more bids until you change your credit limit by contacting our office.
You can, but we advise that you exercise caution if you elect to do this. We advise that you do not start to bid using the ‘Free Internet Bidding’ software until the price the auctioneer is calling is one bid increments above the maximum price you specified on your Pre bid.
As with all technology, the Internet is not 100% reliable. From time to time, you may experience Internet disconnections while you're logged into the auction. If this happens, re-establish your connection as quickly as possible, and re-launch the ‘Free Internet Bidding’ software from the website homepage by clicking on ‘Bid Now’ button.
If you were actively bidding when you were disconnected and you were the high bidder at that point it is likely that you will be outbid. If not then the lot will be sold to you.
To bid on more than one ramp at the same time has the same requirements as if you were bidding on 2 separate auctions. You can view and listen to both ramps on the same computer. An option is available to toggle between the ramps for the audio. You can use the same Username & Password to login however. Single Registration ensures you are already registered for the entire auction.
