b. book a phone bidding as described in point b of paragraph 1

c. submit written absentee bids as described in point d of paragraph 1.


In the event of:

a. One single auction pre-bid on a lot

In the absence of bids during the auction, the lot will be awarded at the starting bid even if the sole bid received is higher (the amount of the pre-auction bid indicates the maximum bid the bidder is willing to place.

Example: Starting bid £ 1,000 – Single pre-sale bid £ 1,500 – Award at £ 1,000

b. Multiple auction pre-bids of the same amount on the same lot

If no bids are raised during the auction, the lot will be awarded to the earlier bidder. 

c. Multiple auction pre-bids of different amounts on the same lot

If there are no bids during the auction, the lot will be awarded to the highest bidder. The hammer price is calculated by adding to the amount of the next lowest bid an increment set out in the table below. 

Example: customer A bid £ 1,270 - customer B bid £ 1,800. Customer B does not win at the award price of £ 1,800 but at £ 1,370. In other words, the automatic increase of £ 100 provided for in the table is applied to the amount of the next lowest bid when the bids are within the £ 1,000-1,999 bracket.
