Absentee bids
Lots will always be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and reserves. This service is provided for the convenience of clients and Grosvenor will not be held responsible for failure to execute bids. Absentee bids, when placed by telephone, are accepted only at the sender’s risk and must be confirmed by letter or fax. Please note that we cannot accept bids received later than one hour before the start of the auction.

Successful bids
Should you be a successful bidder, you will receive an invoice detailing your purchases. All purchases are insured in transit and will be sent by Special Delivery, International Signed For or Courier, unless otherwise instructed, for which a minimum charge of £8.50 + VAT will be added to your invoice. Purchases weighing in excess of the maximum allowed weights for these services will be sent by approved courier at the lowest available cost unless we are otherwise instructed.

Card Payments
Payments for purchases made by cards issued outside the EU, or by any corporate card, are subject to a surcharge of 2.5% (+ VAT when applicable).

Cards registered outside the UK will be charged in the currency of your account unless stipulated otherwise by you.

UK credit cards and all EU cards will be accepted up to a current maximum amount of £1,000.

Buyers’ Premium
A Buyers’ Premium of 20% + VAT (24%) is added to the hammer price of each lot and all bids and limits are taken as exclusive of this premium.

Grosvenor guarantees not to make your contact details available to any other parties.
