VIEWINGS & CONDITION REPORTS
Potential buyers are strongly urged to attend our pre-sale viewings at our saleroom. For international buyers and those unable to attend a viewing all lots can be seen online through our live bidding partners. If you require further details of any lot please contact the saleroom.
Due to COVID-19 measures our saleroom is currently closed to bidders with all auctions being online only.
We are also unable to offer viewings but are happy to provide any additional information or photographs to the best of our ability on any lot upon request.
You can bid on all our sales through our online partners LiveAuctioneers (please note an additional 5% will be added to the buyers premium when bidding online). Full instructions for registration and bidding are provided on their website.
Customers unable to attend the auction may leave an absentee – or commission/written – bid with the auctioneer, reflecting the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the lot. We are happy to execute these on your behalf and will purchase the lot for you at the lowest possible price, other bids and reserves permitting. Absentee bids are offered as a free service and at the buyer’s risk. We cannot accept liability for any failure to place such bids, and bids are accepted at the buyer’s risk.
Bidders not previously known to Talat Auctions should contact our saleroom no later than 24 hours before the start of the sale and will need to provide proof of identification before any bids will be accepted.
Telephone bidders will be required to provide proof of identification before any bids will be accepted.
For all sales buyers will pay the hammer price plus a buyer's premium of 20% of the hammer price. Online bidders will incur an additional 5% premium on the hammer price (25% total).
Where possible we urge buyers to collect their purchases directly from our saleroom. For international buyers and those unable to collect in person we can arrange professional, fully insured shipping at an additional cost payable by the buyer. Please contact the saleroom for a quote.
